Hundreds of Planned Parenthood Great Plains supporters shined bright lights at our health centers in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma this week at sunset rallies, a nationwide simultaneous event at Planned Parenthood health centers across the country. The lights symbolized a resistance against efforts to make Planned Parenthood go dark.
On the eve of the U.S. Senate's draft bill release on repealing the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare), Planned Parenthood supporters sent a clear message - they will not stand for any Senator who votes for a reckless health care bill that would block Medicaid patients from Planned Parenthood, strip millions of Americans of their health insurance, and put premiums on women's health care including maternity care and birth control.
Here are some highlights from the sunset rallies across the PPGP affiliate...
