6 Ways You Can Stand With Planned Parenthood


Planned Parenthood provides critical health services—such as cancer screenings and STI testing—to 2.7 million women and men every year. But anti-choice lawmakers are wrongly claiming that Planned Parenthood mostly provides abortions (in fact, abortions account for just 3 percent of all the health services Planned Parenthood provides) and they’re fighting to strip the organization of its funding.

That’s why September 29 has been declared #PinkOut day—a national day of action to support Planned Parenthood and the health care it provides.

Below, discover six ways you can #StandWithPP today!

1. Sign our petition urging Congress to stand with Planned Parenthood.
