For over 100 years Planned Parenthood has provided women with the resources/care they need to live strong and healthy lives globally.

In light of the impending decision to defund Planned Parenthood, protesters for and against took to the streets all across America. Anti-choice protesters were expected at more than 200 locations across the states. In response, 150 pro-choice rallies popped up in parks, politicians’ offices, and government buildings--outnumbering the original anti-choice demonstration. Along with these powerful protest, dozen of companies have responded by openly funding clinics.
