We Rallied for Women's Health: What's Next?!

Join the Campaign to Save Women's Health

There are proposals advancing in Congress that would:

- END the U.S. family planning program: Millions of women would lose access to essential services like cancer screening, STI testing, prenatal care, and contraception.

- BAN insurance coverage for abortion on the health care exchanges and threaten to end all private insurance coverage for abortion, even when paid for with private dollars.

- LET A WOMAN DIE if a hospital has "moral or religious" objections to providing emergency treatment.

Tell Congress, the President, and the world why YOUR health matters, and how shutting down Planned Parenthood and women's health clinics, blocking insurance coverage for abortion, and reducing access to birth control would impact your life. We need to keep rallying for women's health, by continuing to turn up the pressure on our elected officials and letting them know that our health matters. Help us to tell real stories - OUR stories - to save women's health.
