I Stand with Planned Parenthood.
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.
Show that you stand with Planned Parenthood by contacting Speaker Paul Ryan via telephone at the two numbers listed below:
Speaker Ryan’s Washington, D.C. number 202/225-3031
Speaker Ryan’s Janesville, WI number 608/752-4050
You can also email Speaker Ryan at http://bit.do/EmailPaulRyan
Below is a phone script that you can use when you are connected to Speaker Ryan’s office, and an email script for you to send him. Feel free to personalize your call and email by mentioning why Planned Parenthood is so important to you.
Hi, my name is _____________, and I live in ______________________.
I’m calling to ask Speaker Paul Ryan NOT to hold a vote on any attempt to defund Planned Parenthood.
We see through your 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 the 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 Speaker Ryan to do the right thing and stand up for the Planned Parenthood patients in my community and across the country who are counting on those health centers.
I stand with Planned Parenthood because (insert you own story, if you like).
I expect Speaker Ryan to stop any attacks on Planned Parenthood and the vital health services they provide.
Thank you for your time.
EMAIL SCRIPT. Again, feel free to personalize it.
Dear Speaker Ryan:
I stand with Planned Parenthood.
An attack on Planned Parenthood will deny millions of patients access to cancer screenings, birth control, HIV testing, and more.
I will not let that happen. And neither will the millions of Americans who stand with me. We will fight like hell to stop you. With words, with actions, with dollars. With everything we have. We will not back down. Not ever.
