Call Your Congressperson
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. If they succeed, millions will lose the care they rely on each year, with people of color, those with low incomes, and folks in rural areas most affected.
Tell them you’re a part of the overwhelming majority that opposes defunding care at Planned Parenthood health centers. Tell them you’re ready to fight like hell to protect reproductive health and rights in his country. Tell them you stand with Planned Parenthood.

What to Say (Call Script)
Hi, my name is ____________ and I live in _____________.
I’m calling to ask ____[Name of Senator or Representative]___ 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. If Congress cuts funding to Planned Parenthood, millions of people will be left without access to birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, and other basic care. Many of them will have nowhere else to go for the health care they need.
I’m counting on ____[Name of Senator or Representative]___ to do the right thing and stand up for the Planned Parenthood patients in our community and across the country who rely on those health centers.
I stand with Planned Parenthood because [insert your own story, if you like].
I expect ____[Name of Senator or Representative]___ to vote against any attacks on Planned Parenthood and the vital health services they provide.
Thank you for your time.
