Hey Spokane Let's Stand with Planned Parenthood

The Impact of Defunding Planned Parenthood:

Q: Why is being able to access health care at a Planned Parenthood center so important?

A: To begin with, many of Planned Parenthood’s patients have no other accessible health care options.

If Planned Parenthood health centers can’t provide care for them, nobody will. In fact, in more than 20% of the counties where Planned Parenthood health centers operate, there are no other health care providers who serve patients who rely on safety-net providers.

(All information gathered from plannedparenthood.org )

Q: How many people would lose access to health care?

A: If extreme politicians shut down Planned Parenthood, 2.5 million patients would lose access to care.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Approximately 60% of Planned Parenthood’s patients access health care at its health centers through publicly funded programs like Medicaid or Title X.
  • Legislation that “defunds” Planned Parenthood immediately blocks those people from accessing care at Planned Parenthood health centers.
  • We know that politicians real goal is to shut down Planned Parenthood health centers across the country. If these politicians succeed, it will be a national health disaster and devastate care.
