Planned Parenthood, a public health program that provides an array of sexual health services to millions of people, is facing a major attack by Congress. The Pence Amendment would eliminate HIV and STI screening, cancer screening, birth control access, and an array of other crucial services. These are services I myself use, that many of my viewers use, and that millions of others use to keep themselves safe and healthy.
Limited access to education and resources should not be imposed upon the young and the poor by the rich and the old. In the name of a healthy nation, in the name of healthy moms, dads, teens, daughters, and sons:
PLEASE take 2 minutes today to call your Congressional representative and tell them to protect your sexual health by voting NO on the Pence Amendment.
Please recognize that this is NOT about abortion; such an argument is just an easy way to escape addressing the actual issues on the table. The amendment is an attack on family planning on the whole–DOZENS of important services–and we honestly can’t afford to lose what little we have.
