Well, Planned Parenthood is first and foremost a health care provider. We are unique because we are a provider and advocate, speaking out for the women, men, and teens we serve to promote reproductive justice and protect women's health.
With a new President leading the way, we have an opportunity to engage the country in a conversation about the importance of women’s health, and ensuring that women’s health is an integral part of the efforts to fix our health care system. There will be efforts in states across the country to undermine a women’s right to make personal health decisions, but we believe the American people have clearly spoken that they are ready for a new day.
We look forward to working with President Obama and the new Congress on three critical health priorities:
- First, we need to make sure that everyone has access to affordable, quality health care, especially women.
- Second, we need common sense policies that reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and teen pregnancies.
- Third, we must expand access to affordable family planning and prevention care, both domestically and internationally.
