SPOKESPERSON AVAILABILTY: Planned Parenthood President Available for Interviews on Proposed HHS Regulations
Date:7/31/2008

NEW YORK, July 31 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- According to recent reporting, including today's Washington Post article (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/07/30/AR20080730 03238.html), the Bush administration is circulating a draft proposed regulation that, if enacted, would jeopardize women's health care by allowing providers to withhold the critical health care information women need to make fully informed decisions about their care. As a leading health care provider to millions of American women, Planned Parenthood knows the importance of full, accurate information and honest communication between patients and health care providers. At a time when more and more families are uninsured and under economic assault, President Bush is fueling our health care crisis by allowing providers to withhold safe and effective health care services and information.

Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards can speak about the proposed regulation, including the potential effects on American women and our nation's health care system.
