Actions in Preparation of AHCA Vote
The House of Representatives will likely vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) this Thursday, March 23 (which also happens to be the 7-year anniversary of Obama signing the Affordable Care Act). This bill would block patients from using Medicaid at Planned Parenthood clinics—the first step in the extremist lawmakers’ multi-point plan to “defund” PP. Planned Parenthood is a trustworthy care provider in our community that performs vital cancer screening and saves lives. If you’ve ever relied on Planned Parenthood, especially for cancer prevention, now is your time to act.
Here’s what you can do:
Know that Planned Parenthood Association of Utah catches cancer early on.
- During annual wellness exams, Planned Parenthood screens for different types of cancer.
- In many cases, Planned Parenthood provides these types of exams at a lower rate than other providers.
- Planned Parenthood accepts most forms of insurance for these exams.
Join the Cancer Survivors Network.
- This is a group for cancer survivors and people touched by cancer.
- The network is united against attacks by extreme politicians who want to block access to care that Planned Parenthood provides, including lifesaving cancer screenings.
Share your Planned Parenthood story.
- Tell us why you stand with Planned Parenthood.
- Tell us where you would be without Planned Parenthood.
- Cancer free thanks to PP? We want to know about it.
Call your Member of Congress and tell them why they need to vote against the AHCA.
- Tell them the story about why you stand with Planned Parenthood:
- “I want to go to the health care provider of my choice, and that choice is Planned Parenthood.”
- “Planned Parenthood caught my cancer before it was too late.”
Hold your Member of Congress accountable.
- Truth be told, the House will likely vote to approve the AHAC on Thursday.
- If that happens, let the world know that your member of Congress dropped the ball on health care:
