RESOLUTION 15-08.33L

Resolution to Reject Republican Attacks on Planned Parenthood and Women’s Health Care

WHEREAS, Planned Parenthood has fought for women’s reproductive health for nearly 100 years, and one in five American women has received health care from Planned Parenthood;

WHEREAS, women trust Planned Parenthood’s national network of health centers to provide them with confidential, nonjudgmental health care to prevent unintended pregnancies through contraception, reduce sexually transmitted disease, provide life-saving cancer screening, and deliver comprehensive sexual health education;

WHEREAS, Republicans in Congress and Republican presidential candidates threaten to defund Planned Parenthood and to shut down the federal government in order to deny reproductive health care to women, including abortion;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party rejects Republicans’ war against women’s health;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party stands with Planned Parenthood and its mission to offer trustworthy, knowledgeable, high-quality, federally funded family planning, education, and primary health care to American women and girls.
