In a recent town hall, newly confirmed Health and Human Services Secretary, Tom Price, promised that, despite defunding of Planned Parenthood, the GOP legislation would “increase money for women’s health services.”
Sorry to use these words, but that is total B-S, as demonstrated by all studies of the services provided by Planned Parenthood across the country, particularly in rural areas, and the dearth of clinics to replace them.
Again, we feel the need to be bold and say: Rich white guys like Tom Price, Paul Ryan, Donald Trump, etc etc etc and etc, are deciding the fate of women, many of whom are low-income. This is unacceptable!
Please note, as per their website: “It is the mission of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. We fulfill that mission by providing for effective health and human services and fostering advances in medicine, public health, and social services.”
TODAY’S 5 Minute Action:
Step 1: Call Tom Price and let him know where you stand.
- Script: “Just as the EPA took ‘science’ out of it’s mission, are you going to take “all Americans” out of yours? We reject your statement that the new healthcare bill will protect women’s healthcare. It has been demonstrated many times over that this is NOT possible given the lack of clinics in rural areas, and you should be ashamed for misleading the public.”
BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
