There’s positive news for Missourians’ access to health care: the Department of Social Services (DSS) is seeking renewal of the Women’s Health Services Program!
Thousands of low-income Missourians rely on the Women’s Health Services Program for essential preventive health care like birth control, cancer screenings, annual exams and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment from the providers of their choice, including Planned Parenthood.
This past year, the Legislature temporarily cut the federally funded Women’s Health Services Program in an attempt to deny patients access to Planned Parenthood. But Missourians’ access to health care is not a political game. The Women’s Health Services Program should be renewed.
We need you to speak out in support of renewing the Women’s Health Services Program so Missourians can access quality health care from the provider of their choice.
The comment period closes soon, so please act today. Tell DSS to put Missourians’ health care first and renew the Women’s Health Services Program.
Targeted Restrictions of Abortion Providers (TRAP laws) like the ones that the Supreme Court just struck down in Texas have nothing to do with protecting women’s health and everything to do with stopping women from accessing abortion.
In 2015, Missouri took a small step forward in advancing the sex education curriculum, but we can and must do more!
The bottom line is that even with this new law, Missouri young people can be subjected to ineffective and dangerous abstinence-only sex education in our public schools. That is NOT OK.
Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri volunteers are enthusiastic activists who are dedicated to advancing sexual and reproductive health — whether it be increasing access to emergency contraception, promoting proactive family planning legislation, or fighting the anti-reproductive and sexual health powers that be.
