The shady anti-abortion group, deceivingly named “Center for Medical Progress,” is planning more video releases and demonstrations this week as part of an effort to discredit Planned Parenthood and intimidate and harass their patients and doctors.
Don’t believe the lies. These videos are part of a long-term, concerted campaign to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization that has helped nearly 1 in 5 American women.
If these radicals get their way, millions of women—and in particular, women with incomes well below the poverty level—will lose access to free or affordable birth control, Pap tests, breast exams, and STI testing and treatment. These services have prevented countless unplanned pregnancies, greatly reducing the need for abortion care.
