What is Planned Parenthood?
“For 100 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a common-sense approach to women's health and well-being, based on respect for each individual's right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning”.

Why the Planned Parenthood Action Fund?
“Politicians in multiple states are passing laws that ban abortion at a point before most people know they’re pregnant. These politicians want the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade let these bans go into effect — ending safe, legal abortion in their states once and for all. We won’t stand by while they take away our right to control our own bodies”.

We are angry and we know you’re angry too. Fundraising for the Planned Parenthood Action Fund will help us channel our rage into something positive. Right now, we have it much easier in Quebec (even comparatively to other provinces in Canada: https://bit.ly/2Rg99oz), but helping Planned Parenthood fight these bans could also contribute to the assurance that Canada will not follow suit. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund helps Planned Parenthood fight for laws and policies to protect people’s rights and health. Our contribution can help them stop the bans from taking affect.
