Best Way To Put Your Money Where Your Reproductive Organs Are: Planned Parenthood

Best Way To Put Your Money Where Your Reproductive Organs Are

Not to get toooooo political, but since taking office (and before), Donald Trump and extreme Republicans have done a few things to freak women out, like reinstating a “Global Gag Rule” that prohibits the United States from issuing funding to international aid groups which in any way engage with abortion or telling Planned Parenthood it can keep its federal funding if it stops providing abortions (NB: current federal funding only goes to Planned Parenthood healthcare services, not abortions). Without even going into it too much, last time we checked, women had a constitutional right to choose and, along with helping women manifest that right with access to safe and legal abortions, Planned Parenthood also provides a slew of affordable health care options for anyone and everyone, including birth control, general health care, HIV testing, LGBTQ services, men’s health care, pregnancy testing and services, STD testing, vaccines… So if you’re looking to give some of your money away, standing with and donating to Planned Parenthood is an excellent way to help fight to keep access to reproductive and health rights in America. You can also volunteer your time, share you story, call Republican leaders and more. Oh, and if you are giving some of your money away, why not throw some at the ACLU, too? Planned Parenthood, 2314 Auburn Ave., Mount Auburn, plannedparenthood.org.
