Planned Parenthood Urges Gov. Schwarzenegger to Rescind Harmful Budget Cuts to Women's Health Care
Date:5/26/2009

Critics launch misleading campaign

NEW YORK, May 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Planned Parenthood Federation of America is urging Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger to rescind his proposal to cut $36 million in family planning funds from the state budget. These cuts would put preventive health care and family planning at risk for countless women in California.

These budget cuts will jeopardize our ability to provide essential health care."

California's Planned Parenthood health centers are an entry point into the health care system for hundreds of thousands of women and families, and often times their main source of health care. For 60 percent of our patients, we are their primary care provider. Moreover, as a result of the economic downturn more women and families are seeking care at Planned Parenthood because they've lost their job and health insurance. With an estimated 14,000 Americans losing health coverage every day, assuring access to essential women's health care is more important than ever.

In the last eight months, California's Planned Parenthood health centers have seen an increase of nearly 70,000 patient visits for preventive or primary care.

Investing in preventive care actually saves the state money in the short and the long run. FamilyPACT, a family planning program which serves as a model for the nation, is essential c
