In case you missed it, the House Republicans just voted to defund Planned Parenthood.
When I first got married, my husband was a law student. So we had no insurance. We lived in a new city. I didn't know any doctors. But there was a Planned Parenthood. It was a name I trusted. My annual exam was about $30.
Because I had regular exams, I caught a serious issue early that could have led to infertility if left untreated.
Thankfully, I had somewhere to go for quality treatment. And when I was ready, I became the mother of three beautiful children.
I walked through the doors of Planned Parenthood to make sure I stayed healthy in hopes that one day I would have a family. Every woman should have that same access to quality, affordable care.
No rhetoric. Just a real story from a real person. I think we need more of that in Washington. Don't you?
