Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California Condemn Immoral and Illegal Action By POTUS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 6th, 2017

Contact:   Ben Sosenko, Hiltzik Strategies, 916.529.3641

Statement by Crystal Strait, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California and California Planned Parenthood Education Fund, regarding today’s decision to employers to claim exemptions to covering contraception under the Affordable Care Act.

SACRAMENTO – "The administration's latest attack on women's health, allowing employers to opt out of providing contraception to employees, is unjust, immoral and illegal. Thankfully, California has legislation in place to protect most women from this discrimination, but not everyone.  Millions will not be able to afford contraception, leading to increases in unwanted pregnancies, premature births, and maternal mortality. It's a cruel joke on the part of POTUS and the GOP that they will not stop until Planned Parenthood is defunded, yet their answer to contraceptive access is to have us pick up the entire tab. We stand with Attorney General Becerra and will use every tool at our disposal to defeat this unlawful and heinous action."
