Please read our statement below and support women's reproductive healthcare in any way you can.
99 years ago today Margaret Sanger was arrested for distributing birth control pamphlets to women on the street. Today Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides a wide range of essential reproductive health services to women, in particular low-income women with no other options, is under attack. Lost in the hysteria is that fact that reproductive health care is about providing women with essential female-specific medial care, such as breast exams and cervical cancer screenings, in addition to giving women access to birth control options, a service that allows women to control their lives and shape their destinies. We believe that no woman should be denied essential health services because of her income and organizations like Planned Parenthood that fill this gap should be supported, not derided. Please donate to support our run to support Planned Parenthood, an organization that provides essential reproductive healthcare services to women from all walks of life! Women's rights are human rights. <3
