Tell him to stand with Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is under attack like never before. The federal government is now in the hands of extremist lawmakers who have tried for years to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers and cut patients off from care.

As a key senator and potential bridge between political parties, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin plays a crucial role in advocating for the nearly 200,000 West Virginians who rely on Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. 

Without Medicaid, Planned Parenthood South Atlantic patients will be denied access to our service, which include life-saving cancer screenings, birth control, and STI and HIV testing and treatment.

Planned Parenthood South Atlantic serves over 1,000 patients in West Virginia, and has over 18,000 activists and supporters. We do not want to see West Virginian’s health care coverage attacked.

Tell Sen. Manchin you’re a part of the overwhelming majority that opposes defunding care at Planned Parenthood health centers. Tell him you’re ready to fight like hell to protect reproductive health and rights in West Virginia. Tell him you stand with Planned Parenthood and expect them to as well.

Letters, petitions and emails are important, but we know that calls have the largest impact and grab lawmakers’ attention. 

Will you call Sen. Manchin now? Ask him to stand with West Virginians who rely on Planned Parenthood and our affordable health care services.

What to Say (Call Script)

Hi, my name is ____________ and I live in _____________.

I'm calling to ask Sen. Manchin to vote NO on any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.

This is nothing more than a blatantly political attempt to do whatever it takes to attack women's health and rights and take health care away from the people who need it most. As a representative of over 1 million women, men and young people in West Virginia, I urge Sen Manchin to protect affordable health care. Over 200,000 West Virginians rely on Medicaid, and I hope he will support Planned Parenthood by defending women’s health care and reproductive rights.

Planned Parenthood is the first choice for health care for thousands of people in West Virginia.

I want to remind my Senator that his constituents are patients who rely on affordable health care, and we hope he will communicate this with his colleagues in Washington.
