NATWA II believes in encouraging women in participating in public affairs and the advancement of women’s rights, and we stand together with Planned Parenthood.
Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 240-185 to pull all federal funding to Planned Parenthood, an agency that for years has helped the health of the U.S. community through cancer screenings, STD testing, birth control, and much more. Cutting their funding will put the health of millions of low-income women and families in danger, especially when Planned Parenthood’s services are so needed for vulnerable community members in these tough economic times. NATWA II would like to inform our members and supporters about this crucial moment for women in the U.S. If you feel compelled to support, we encourage you to sign the link below or even contact your local representative and tell him/her how important Planned Parenthood is to the community and to not cut funding.
This legislation will soon be voted on in the U.S. Senate. To find out who your Senators are, please go to http://www.senate.gov/ and click on your respective state and please encourage others in our nation to also contact them. Please remember your voice can make a difference and you can do this in less than a few minutes. Thank you for your time and support!

Did you hear? The House voted to bar Planned Parenthood from federal funding. They cut funding for HIV tests, cancer screenings, birth control, and more, putting millions of women and families at risk. We can’t let it go unanswered. It’s time for you and me to stand with Planned Parenthood. Sign the open letter to the reps who voted for this bill — and to the senators who still have a chance to stop it.
