We are fed up.

Every day, Planned Parenthood affiliates and independent abortion providers around the nation give compassionate care to women who need abortions. I am fed up with the ongoing attacks on these brave and committed providers. The need for abortion care has been a common experience across the generations and health care facilities such as Planned Parenthood have been there to ensure safe access. Yet those who provide abortion care are too often intimidated, badgered, stalked, and entrapped.AFY_StandWithPP2.jpg

I stand with Planned Parenthood and I ask you to do so as well.

Press Release: Give Teens What They Need to Make Healthy Decisions

Providing teens with information about and access to contraception before they need it is crucial to their health, we learn from the CDC’s new report Sexual Activity, Contraceptive Use, and Childbearing of Teenagers Aged 15–19 in the United States.

Sexual development is a normal and healthy part of growing up, and teens become more sexually active as they age. Forty-four percent of female and 47 percent of male teens had ever had sex, and by age 19 nearly 70 percent of teens have ever had sex. These numbers have been steady since 2002. They represent millions of teens who need education and skills to protect them from unwanted pregnancy, HIV, and sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
