Preventative care for women is under attack.

09/29/2015

Why we’ve joined #PinkOut to defend Planned Parenthood

2.7 million women, men and young people rely on Planned Parenthood for basic preventive care. However, we’ve seen an unprecedented attack on women’s health -- nearly 40 attempts to restrict women’s access to health care this year.

Women’s health is critical to our families, communities and our economy because the Americans under attack are mothers, sisters, CEOs, aunts, nurses, wives and friends. Therefore, an attack on women’s health is an attack on everyone’s health.

As SEIU President Mary Kay Henry said, “Efforts in Congress to defund Planned Parenthood by anti-women, anti-choice extremists must be stopped.”

That’s exactly why SEIU is proud to participate in #PinkOut Day today - a day in support of women's health, reproductive rights, and Planned Parenthood.
