The Supreme Court Hears a Case that Could Impact the Lives of Over 120,000 Missouri Women

On March 4, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court heard the case of King v. Burwell. If a core component of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is overturned, in Missouri alone, over 120,000 women could lose their health insurance subsidies. Nationally, 4.1 million women in 34 states could immediately lose subsidies, making their coverage unaffordable.

International Women’s Day

“Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.”

Twenty years ago, at the 1995 World Conference on Women in Beijing, governments made a promise to women, and solidified the concept that so-called “women’s rights” are about much more than women.

This International Women’s Day, we stand strong with our fierce allies in shaping the most diverse movement for women’s rights yet. Want to join us? Tell your senator to support the Global Democracy Promotion Act, which would benefit women and families around the world by ending the global gag rule.

National Day of Appreciation for Abortion Providers

On Tuesday, Planned Parenthood says “thank you” to the doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and health center staff who work every day to keep women healthy and ensure they have access to the full range of reproductive health care options — including safe and legal abortion. As the leading women’s health care provider and advocate, Planned Parenthood is committed to providing patients with high-quality, confidential and non-judgmental care. The work of compassionate and highly skilled health center staff makes this possible, and ensures that the communities we serve get the best care possible, every day — no matter what.

P.S. It is your support that drives us to fight for reproductive rights and allows us to provide vital health services to those in our community. Help be there for women, men, and teens in our community by making a tax-deductible donation. DONATE
