You Can’t Fool Us

Advocates for Youth will not stand by as politicians in the federal and state government continue to push Trump’s agenda of hate, fear and harm. We strongly condemn the actions of the U.S. Senate today in allowing state politicians to block people who use Title X family planning funding from accessing the health care their need at the clinic of their choice, including Planned Parenthood clinics. And we know the sham “repeal” of HB2 does nothing to actually fix the anti-transgender policies North Carolina has put in place. It is no more than a publicity stunt to gain the NCAA’s attention. We see through these politicians fake concern for the well-being of their citizens and healthcare. We call on Congress to stop their shameful attacks on reproductive health care providers whose services are so vital for young people across the U.S., and we are sorely disappointed that Governor Roy Cooper chose not to listen to community organizers in North Carolina and instead signed the fake HB 2 repeal. Young people across the country deserve better from their elected officials.
