"These Doors Will Stay Open"

Posted on February 18, 2013 at 12:45 PM
Last August, the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the state of Texas can deny women access to preventive health care, despite the desperate need of thousands of uninsured Texan women for basic preventive care. The court lifted an injunction that had barred Texas from enforcing its ban against Planned Parenthood health centers’ participation in the Women’s Health Program.

Following the ruling, Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, issued this statement:
 
“We are evaluating every possible option to protect women’s health in Texas. This case has never been about Planned Parenthood — it's about the women who rely on Planned Parenthood for cancer screenings, birth control, and well-woman exams.
 
“It is shocking that politics would get in the way of women receiving access to basic health care.  Governor Perry has already thrown 160,000 women off of health care for partisan political reasons — now there will be more to come. Today’s ruling puts the health of an additional 52,000 women in jeopardy. 
 
“For nearly 100 years, women and families have trusted Planned Parenthood for high-quality, affordable health care and information. We won't let politics interfere with the health care that nearly three million people a year rely on Planned Parenthood for in Texas and around the country. Planned Parenthood health center doors are open today and they’ll be open tomorrow."


The Texas rule to exclude Planned Parenthood from the Women's Health Program comes after budget cuts, passed by the state legislature and signed by Governor Perry last year, dramatically reduced the state’s family planning program by more than two-thirds.  These cuts are projected to take health care away from 160,000 women per year...



<Sigh.>

 You read these statistics and the problem just seems so... LARGE.  It leaves you feeling helpless.  What can YOU possibly do, with your limited budget and your life already full of your own problems to deal with?  You look at your hands; you think, "They look so small...  And the problem is so big...  How can I help with just these little hands?"


You just make sure to do what you can.    :-)

Vote.  Talk to your friends.  Sign up with Planned Parenthood to give them $5.00 per month.  Here's the form:  









It's overwhelming, and it's easy to feel defeated.  Don't give up.  You believe in Planned Parenthood and the good work they do for us.  Every tiny gesture has a ripple effect.  You can't solve the world's problems by yourself.  You can only do whatever you can do.  Make sure you do that!

Have a beautiful day, all!  --
