Extreme politicians are trying to “defund” and shut down Planned Parenthood health centers — which would have a devastating impact on the nearly 18,000 people like Rachel who rely on Planned Parenthood for care in Nevada.
We need to make sure Senator Heller knows exactly what’s at stake if he prohibits Medicaid patients from access to preventive care at Planned Parenthood. Because for millions of women, men and young people in this country, this isn’t about politics — this is their basic health care.
Call Senator Heller at 775-204-0136 and ask him to stand with Planned Parenthood.
Every year, 2.5 million people rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for essential health services — including birth control, cancer screenings, and STD/STI testing and treatment. Studies consistently show that proposals to block patients from going to Planned Parenthood clinics will result in people losing access to health care. As experts have repeatedly said, Planned Parenthood is the only place for many of people to get care, and other providers cannot take on the patient's Planned Parenthood now serves.
