Take a Stand

Hi all! I don't want to offend any of you with this post, but I feel that it is important that I do share this information.

The U.S. House of Representatives has just voted to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from all federal funding for birth control, cancer screenings, HIV testing, and other lifesaving care.

It is the most dangerous legislative assault in our history, and it cannot go unanswered. We — Planned Parenthood and the three million women, men, and teens who are at risk of losing access to basic care — need you to stand united with us now.

Sign our open letter to every single representative in the House who voted for this cruel, unconscionable, unthinkable law, and to every senator who still has a chance to stop it. (source) 


 I want to be clear that I do NOT support abortion. I do support the myriad other services that Planned Parenthood provides to low-income individuals. If you would like to sign the petition, please visit this site set up specifically for that purpose.
