Thank you to All Above All for highlighting my op-ed on repealing the Hyde Amendment in their “Acts of Boldness” campaign! It’s such an honor to featured alongside so many of my heroes in the fight for reproductive justice and gender equality.
As an uninsured young adult working three jobs, Planned Parenthood was my only option for access to birth control and well-woman exams. Since they were there for me to provide much-needed sex education, information on and access to birth control and compassionate, professional health care, I’ve become outspoken about reproductive justice and the fact that I #StandWithPP.
Once the attacks on Planned Parenthood were proven to be a coordinated smear campaign, I joined Senator Shaheen from New Hampshire, along with Senators Patty Murray and Richard Blumenthal, along with Representatives Diana DeGette, and Jan Schakowsky, to call for an end to the efforts to take away access to necessary health care services.
