Defending Planned Parenthood is Essential for the Whole Progressive Movement

LeeAnn Hall

Planned Parenthood is an easy target for rage and righteousness as we saw too plainly in the shootings in Colorado Springs late last month.

The ongoing conservative attack on Planned Parenthood funding depends on the same extreme rhetoric but, it’s also part of a broader trend, a strategy by the right to dismantle progressive infrastructure.

As destructive as we know right-wing operatives to be, we shouldn’t be surprised by their tactics – and we can’t allow ourselves to be divided or defeated by them, either.

Excellent article. Instead of women earning the right to an abortion, I would use "the right to choose" as it implies that women have other options/choices.

I give to Planned Parenthood with each paycheck and have done so for many, many years.

We have to ensure that ALL WOMEN have access to low cost medical care nationwide and Planned Parenthood provides that much needed care!
