Washington, DC – On Wednesday, Reps. Moore and Veasey join Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens and local Planned Parenthood leaders to sound the alarm on the Trump Administration’s efforts to undermine essential health care programs for women. Speakers will address the ways anti-women’s-healthmembers in Congress and the Trump-Pence administration are undermining lifesaving programs like Title X, the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program, and Medicaid.
More than 600 Planned Parenthood patients, supporters, and staff representing all 50 states will be advocating for Planned Parenthood patients in the nonprofit’s biggest lobby day ever. Since taking office, the Trump-Pence administration has taken blow after blow to women’s health care. With help from extreme lawmakers in Congress, they have rolled back access to affordable birth control, cut evidence-based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs, and tried to block patients from accessing Planned Parenthood health centers. Planned Parenthood patients and supporters know their health and rights are on the line and are mobilizing like never before.
Press conference about efforts to fight back against attacks on essential health care programs.
