Planned Parenthood guide to dinner table conversation (and more)

Planned Parenthood Action Fund THANK YOU

Two things happen at my dinner table at Thanksgiving.

The first is that overwhelming sense of gratitude for my family, for home, for the abundance of so much good in my life. And, to be honest, you're a part of that. You see, you might think that in a big organization like Planned Parenthood you're just a number. But you'd be wrong.

I am grateful for every single action, kind word, and donation. I am grateful that you make your voices heard , that you respond to our calls for help in minutes, that even when I am tired, you are not.

Without you, Planned Parenthood health centers can't serve three million people each year and we can't continue to fight for our rights. So, thank you. Please know that I and a whole bunch of folks around here are grateful for you — see what they have to say over there on the right.

There's another thing that happens on Thanksgiving among my family, and that's conversation. I don't know how things are at your Thanksgiving table, but in my house we don't just make small talk. By the time the pie is cut, we've covered family news, politics, football, religion — all the good stuff and much more. We don't always agree, but we're committed to having real conversations.

I have to believe that during times like these, when we face focused opposition to health care reform that serves everyone, it's conversations like these that help. If your family is anything like mine, you'll want to be prepared to converse thoughtfully. Here's some help — a guide to dinner table conversation (and more). Click here to get yours, and please do share!

Thank you for everything you do, every day, on behalf of Planned Parenthood and the women, men, and families we serve.
