Sign the letter on the planned parenthood site. Donate if you can.

When I graduated from UCSC, the only place I could afford to go to was Planned Parenthood. I had a full time job but no health insurance. I actually worked about 3 jobs after I graduated. I didn't make a lot of money and Planned Parenthood was where I could go for my yearly exams. I could go there if I felt sick. I donated whatever money I had and I was thankful that there was a place for me to go even though I didn't have insurance.

Planned Parenthood is more than a place to have an abortion. It provides basic health services for those of us who didn't have insurance.

Sometimes I wish these people who make decisions about our bodies would just lose everything and live like a person who makes minimum wage and paycheck to paycheck and can't go to the doctor...maybe then they will understand that we need these services.
