House Votes to Defund Planned Parenthood: Sign a Letter to Congress to Save Critical Services!

February 18, 2011

Minutes ago the House of Representatives voted to cut all federal funding for Planned Parenthoods nationwide. This will leave a devastating gap in services for three million of women, men, teens and families who rely on Planned Parenthood for their basic health care.

Take action now!

The time is now -- make your voice heard!

is taken away for another war.
