The good fight.

One in five American women have gone to Planned Parenthood. (Me included.) They've gone because they needed to go- because they needed to know if they were pregnant, if they were HIV-positive, if they were at risk for cancer, if they were sick or healthy. They go partly because there are few independent women's health care providers, fewer every year (funny how that happens when people start shooting them). And they go partly because PP has a commitment to making that care affordable, even in the poorest communities. Right now I don't care where you stand on abortion. I care where you stand on people's lives, on their most basic health needs, on the right of every woman to understand her body and to protect that body.
