Sign this petition

Help out Planned Parenthood

This petition urges support for the Prevention First Act.

Remember the facts:

Birth Control-

Title X, the nation's first and only family planning program, provides reproductive health care services to five million low-income women each year -- helping to avoid one million unintended pregnancies annually.

- Unfortunately, Title X is grossly underfunded and cannot serve all 17 million low-income women who need access to publicly-funded reproductive health care services. Unintended pregnancies and abortions among low-income women are on the rise.- Title X must be fully funded and access should be expanded through Medicaid.

Sex Ed- One billion dollars has been wasted on abstinence-only education, which denies young people real information about how to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including AIDS.

- Seventy-five percent of parents believe comprehensive, medically accurate sex education should be taught in schools.- Congress should protect teens' health by passing REAL, the Responsible Education About Life act.

I signed it and got a cute little form letter back from Chuck Hagel. He said I can feel free to go to his website. :)
