“For nearly 100 years, Planned Parenthood has been a trusted provider of essential preventive health services – lifesaving cancer screenings, well-woman exams, birth control, STD testing and treatment – helping to ensure the health and well-being of 2.7 million Americans each year.

“Yet for decades, extremists have used deceitful and legally-questionable tactics to strip access to reproductive and sexual health services. The recent attacks have nothing to do with protecting patient health and safety. It’s simply a distraction from their real agenda which goes beyond banning abortion and cutting women off from care at Planned Parenthood. These are the same extreme political motivations behind the continuous attempts to restrict access to reproductive health services and science-based sex education.

“SIECUS is proud to stand with Planned Parenthood and the millions of women, men, and young people who have relied on the judgment-free, high-quality education and health care they provide.”
