Planned Parenthood organized #PinkOut Day to make lawmakers confront the cruelty of their health care bill
New York, NY - On June 21, 2017; Planned Parenthood organized #PinkOut Day, in an effort to make lawmakers confront the cruelty of their health care bill by turning the internet pink, and showing up in cities and towns across the country wearing pink.
Across the country Planned Parenthood held rallies against attacks on health care access. The Trump administration, Sen. Mitch McConnell and others are trying to force through a health care bill without ever letting anyone even see it. This bill could affect millions of people's access to health care, and cut people with Medicaid off from receiving services at Planned Parenthood, and we all have a right to see it.
At the same time that Planned Parenthood is calling for the Senate to release the Senate AHCA, they're also calling on New York State Senators to pass legislation that will protect reproductive rights here in New York. Demanding that the Senate bring the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraception Coverage Act to a vote!
