Don’t Allow Arizona to Drop Planned Parenthood from Charitable Campaign

Target: Arizona Governor Doug Ducey

Goal: Reinstate Planned Parenthood as an eligible organization for donations from state employees.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey dropped Planned Parenthood as an eligible organization for donations from state employees through the state government charitable campaign. Governor Ducey is the chairman of the State Employee Charitable Campaign and supports excluding Planned Parenthood from the campaign after decades of participation.

A rep for Governor Ducey said the governor feels Arizona shouldn’t be involved in giving contributions to a controversial organization like Planned Parenthood. This comes on the heels of videos from an anti-abortion group that allegedly show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of fetal tissue for profit. These videos have been found to be largely edited and misleading, and Planned Parenthood has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

Yet despite these findings, the Republican Governor is among many other legislators who continue to attack Planned Parenthood, seeming to forget that abortion is in fact legal. The Arizona governor is anti-abortion and has enacted anti-abortion legislation in the past.

These continued attacks on an organization that is doing no wrong are insane, and officials need to stop. Stop Arizona Governor Ducey from dropping Planned Parenthood as an eligible organization for donations through the state government charitable campaign.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Ducey,

I’m horrified to hear that as chairman of the State Employee Charitable Campaign, you have dropped Planned Parenthood as an eligible organization for donations from state employees through the state government charitable campaign. In case you’ve forgotten, those videos from an anti-abortion group that allegedly show Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of fetal tissue for profit have been found to be largely edited and misleading, and Planned Parenthood has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

You cannot continue to attack Planned Parenthood with a false basis for doing so, and you must stop. It’s time that you start being critical of your decisions.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
