Missouri: Don’t Defund Planned Parenthood

Target: Todd Richardson, Speaker of the House, Missouri.

Goal: Reinstate funding for Planned Parenthood.

The Missouri state budget was released recently, which completely removed any funding for the state’s remaining Planned Parenthood facilities, while deciding to fund anti-choice programs. Planned Parenthood is essential for women’s healthcare and Missouri already has dwindling Planned Parenthood clinics, so removing state funding is a fatal blow to the clinics in the state.

Women across the country benefit from Planned Parenthood every day; using the clinic for STD screenings, cancer screenings, as a resource for other health services, and so many important specialties that are completely unrelated to abortions. So, why do lawmakers pretend like Planned Parenthood only focuses on abortions when that is less than 3% of the total services they provide? Sign the petition below to make your voice heard and demand Missouri stand by their women.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Speaker Richardson,

The Missouri State Senate should be ashamed that they are not doing more for women’s healthcare services. Planned Parenthood is an essential clinic that provides million of women with life-saving services. Why are you continually fighting against funding them?

The State of Missouri could learn a huge lesson from empowering the healthcare of their women and what happens when everyone receives equitable health treatment. Planned Parenthood is too essential to get rid of, so don’t let this budget go into effect. We demand you reinstate state funding of Planned Parenthood.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
