Arkansas Monitor - October 10

Dear supporter,

We’re taking back the narrative about Planned Parenthood and sexual and reproductive health and rights. Stand with us by sharing your story of what Planned Parenthood means to you. 

Your voice can make a difference. Whether it’s affordable birth control or the right to safe, legal abortion, tell us why you stand with Planned Parenthood. With politicians determined to strip away access to vital sexual and reproductive health care, it’s never been more important to show up and speak out. 

Your experience can help us lobby lawmakers, mobilize supporters, and educate communities across Arkansas about why Planned Parenthood matters. 

Have you already shared your story? Then volunteer with our Health Center Advocacy Program and help empower others to become involved in the reproductive rights movement. Together, we can protect and advocate for the vital sexual and reproductive health care services Planned Parenthood provides. 

You can also show your support by participating in one or more of the following ways: 

  1. Attend an event below.

  2. Make a donation.

  3. Follow Planned Parenthood Great Plains Votes Arkansas on Twitter.

  4. Schedule an appointment at a Planned Parenthood health center near you.

Arkansans traveling for abortions, data show, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

“Like those in many nearby states, Arkansas lawmakers have steadily moved to restrict abortion access in recent years. With Missouri, Louisiana, Mississippi, Indiana and South Dakota, the state was one of six designated as 'very hostile' to abortion in a recent analysis from Guttmacher Institute, a policy group that supports abortion rights. At least nine new laws that affect abortion access in some way were passed during this year’s Arkansas legislative session.”
