By now you are aware of the attacks against Planned Parenthood. So what is AAUW’s response? As evidenced in our member-adopted Public Policy Program, AAUW is a longtime supporter of reproductive rights. We know Planned Parenthood values the health and safety of its patients above all else, and has high-quality standards for their lifesaving tissue donation programs.
To show our support, AAUW joined 92 organizations in signing a letter to Congress informing them that we stand with Planned Parenthood and the women they serve every day. AAUW has also joined 96 organizations on a coalition letter opposing congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, and sent our own letter to the Hill urging a “no” vote. We will be scoring this vote in our AAUW Action Fund Congressional Voting Record.
