LET PAUL RYAN KNOW YOU STAND WITH PLANNED PARENTHOOD
Planned Parenthood is under attack by the GOP once again. The Republicans are using the stigma of abortions and the pro-life movement to slash funding for its services. However, no one is thinking about how this will affect the woman (and men) who access its sexual health service on a daily basis.
If Paul Ryan (and the rest of the GOP) get their way, the organization stands to lose around 40% of its government funding (around $528.4M). Unfortunately, out of all the services Planned Parenthood provides, STI/STD testing and treatment and contraception alone account for 76%, yet the GOP is solely targeting this organization based on its provision of abortions.
Like Paul Ryan, Vice President-elect Mike Pence is also an outspoken opponent of Planned Parenthood. Back in November, Pence’s disdain led to over 82,000 donations in his name. SuitUp Nation is hoping to beat that number with a donation drive targeting Paul Ryan. Let’s show Paul Ryan how his hatred and ignorance can be translated into support and funding for Planned Parenthood!
