For those wanting to take action and financially support patients and Planned Parenthood in the states who’ve faced recent extreme abortion legislation (Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri), this post provides clarification about how your contributions can make the greatest impact locally.
Planned Parenthood does incredible advocacy work nationally in the form of a “federation.” However, it is state and regional-level affiliates like Planned Parenthood of the Heartland whose funds and staff provide the important on-the-ground medical care and sex education in your community and around the country. This was a misconception noted during the 6-week abortion ban passed in Iowa during the 2018 Legislative Session.
In other words, if you want your donations to directly support patients, health services staff, educators, and all who keep Planned Parenthood’s doors open, please consider contributing to state and regional affiliates. For instance, to support patients and staff in Iowa, donate to the affiliate located in Iowa: Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.
Outlined below are the Planned Parenthood affiliates who do this important work in Georgia, Alabama, and Missouri:
Thanks for supporting women, families, and LGBTQIA+ folks, all!
