The new administration, Congress, and politicians in states across the country have made their priorities clear: attacking reproductive health and rights, dismantling the Affordable Care Act, and blocking millions of patients from accessing care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

But your voice can make a difference. Whether it's affordable birth control or the right to safe and legal abortion, tell us why these services matter to you. Your story will help show lawmakers, the media, and supporters just what we're fighting for in the weeks and months to come.

Here's what other supporters have shared:

When I felt ready, I went to Planned Parenthood. I felt very welcomed and the staff was very warm and genuinely cared about my well-being... I got everything I needed and Planned Parenthood didn't expect anything out of me, and that's when I knew Planned Parenthood practices what they preach: they care no matter what.

During a period of unemployment, I needed access to health care and birth control. I couldn't afford COBRA, and wasn't sure what to do, as I had previously had abnormal pap smears and was scared about what might happen if I didn't monitor my health. I was able to easily access Planned Parenthood and receive the care I needed from an amazingly kind and thorough staff.
