The right-wing attacks on Planned Parenthood aren't just about misleading videos. In states across America, from Florida to Arizona, Republican elected leaders are trying to defund Planned Parenthood and take away the crucial health care services that they provide.
As bad as these attacks are at the state level, this is just the prelude to a bigger battle that's coming next month. Congressional Republicans are already threatening to shut down the government unless Democrats and President Obama agree to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
If you think it's important that women be able to access the reproductive care they need, then stand with Gov. Howard Dean and sign our petition asking all Democratic elected officials to support funding for Planned Parenthood now.
