In Support of Planned Parenthood

Resolution Number 11-04.43

WHEREAS, Planned parenthood is "rooted in the courage and tenacity of American women and men willing to fight for women's health, rights, and equality"; and

WHEREAS, Planned Parenthood, which opened its first clinic in 1916, has played a significant role in the history of health care of women, giving access to affordable family planning and preventative health care services; and

WHEREAS, Planned Parenthood is under attack by Republicans who are waging a war against women by trying to cut health care services for women and take away the rights of women to control their own bodies;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the CDP goes on record supporting the extraordinary work of Planned Parenthood and its commitment to providing quality health care for all women, regardless of income; and

THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party will go on record as opposing cuts to Planned Parenthood and will ask every Democratic Congressional legislator to stand firm and continue to oppose cuts to these vital services for women.
