PPSP Action Fund Gears Up for 2012 Election
Throughout 2011 and 2012, we have seen an unprecedented level of attacks on women's health. Mitt Romney has even promised to "Get Rid" of Planned Parenthood.
This is the wrong direction for the country and our families. Women are watching and we will vote. President Obama and other candidates know they need the women's vote to win. The PPSP Action Fund can help make that happen.
The PPSP Action Fund has chosen a few key races where we KNOW our support can make a real and lasting difference.
Join us for phone banks September 27-November 1 to encourage voters across California and Nevada to vote pro-choice.

California Increases Access to Birth Control with AB 2348
In a victory for women's health, California Governor Jerry Brown signed into law the Timely Access to Birth Control bill (AB 2348), an essential pice of legislation that will improve access to birth control for thousands of women in California. Specifically, the bill allows registered nurses to dispense hormonal contraceptives such as the pill, patches, shots and rings. The bill will go into effect January 1, 2013.
"California has been a national leader in expanidng access to birth control and preventing unintended pregnancy. At a time when states across the nation are moving to restrict women's access to preventive care, Governor Brown has shown his commitment and leadership in support of women's health and improved access to birth control," said Heather Saunders Estes, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific (PPSP).
California currently has a shortage of physicians and advance clinicians, causing delays in access to safe and effective birth control. As a result, many women have to wait weeks for an appointment for contraception. These types of delays leave women at significant risk of unintended pregnancy.
"All Californians have a right to be healthy and have access to safe birth control no matter where they live or who they are. As a sponsor of this important legislation, Planned Parenthood is thrilled that this essential legislation is now law," Estes said.
