43 years ago this week, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision in Roe v. Wade. And now we are facing unprecedented attacks on both women’s reproductive rights AND women’s rights in general.
It appears that Trump plans to sign an executive order to defund the international affiliate of Planned Parenthood, as well as any other NGO providing abortion-related services. Planned Parenthood requests we take the following actions to show that we reject hate and refuse to let the next president roll back the rights we’ve fought so hard to secure. Do one or the other, or all!
Step 1: Share this #WeWontGoBack post on Facebook (click on the link). It may take a few seconds for the full page to load – be patient and wait for the whole page to load – and then click on ‘share’ on the right side of the page.
A good share post might be: “Thank you for providing safe reproductive healthcare to millions of women; 6 in 10 women consider this their MAIN SOURCE OF CARE!”
Step 2: Call your Senators to voice your support; something simple: “I need you to know that I strongly support all women’s access to safe, quality reproductive healthcare. I’m appalled by the Trump administrations efforts to defund Planned Parenthood and other NGO’s who provide these important services and I ask you to fiercely resist these actions.”

(Note, you can also try the main switchboard at (202)225-3121, but we’ve found a long wait to get to any sort of help)
You still may not get through or you may find voice-mail boxes to be full. Try a couple times. If you still don’t get through, that’s ok – you lit up the switchboard!!
Step 3: (optional – we’re over our 5-minute time limit!) If you still have time and haven’t gotten through by phone to your Senators, go ahead and email them with the same message.
Thank you from the TrumpResistance.TODAY team
(and see you tomorrow!)
