Planned Parenthood Saves Transgender Lives
Meet Brooke. Brooke is just one of the many LGBTQ folks who would be harmed by a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, now making its way through Congress. The ACA repeal bill would defund Planned Parenthood, which provides safe, affordable care without judgment or stigma to 2.5 million people each year. That includes more than 4.2 million tests and treatments for STIs and more than 650,000 HIV tests. Planned Parenthood is also one of the country's largest providers of health care to transgender people. As Brooke notes, "An attack on one of us is an attack on all." We in the LGBTQ community must stand together, and that means supporting the work of Planned Parenthood.
