We believe that women should have option to choose abortion. Today they can, thanks to the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. But even though access to abortion is legal, our right to it is far from safe. Anti-choice groups attack our right to choose at every opportunity.

Take Action

NO shutdowns. NO cuts to Planned Parenthood or other vital programs.

Extremist U.S. senators have already started talking about shutting down the government over their crusade to destroy Planned Parenthood. Make sure Congress knows this is unacceptable

Stand with Planned Parenthood

Anti-choice members of Congress are already preparing legislation to try to use these phony videos to justify a wave of new attacks on reproductive freedom. Planned Parenthood needs to know we’ve got their back.

At almost 21 weeks, Scott and I went to our appointment with the specialist. The sonogram operator asked us to be quiet, immediately changing the mood of the room.

The Problem

Anti-choice people want to outlaw abortion, regardless of the woman's situation. They will stop at nothing to make it harder for women to access abortion. They even target the doctors who provide abortion care.

Anti-choice people use many of the following tactics to reach their goals:

Our Solution

We will always have to fight to keep abortion safe and legal. This means defeating attacks in Congress and in the states.

We also believe in reducing the need for abortion. This means we support improving access to birth control and teaching young people comprehensive sex education.

Finally, we always are sure to separate anti-choice myths from facts.
