Today, I spoke at @netrootsnation, the largest annual gathering of progressives in the nation, about the fight to protect and expand our fundamental right to sexual and reproductive healthcare, which is healthcare. Six states only have one provider of abortion care left, 15 cases are one step away from the Supreme Court, and 25 million women could be living in a state where abortion is outlawed, banned, or criminalized if Roe v. Wade is overturned. We must act now and stand up to injustice knowing that we can do better—and must do better—because people’s lives, and our children’s futures, depend on us. #NN19

At Planned Parenthood, we’re proud to provide the full-range of reproductive healthcare services — from birth control to cancer screenings to HIV testing to abortion care. Because reproductive healthcare is healthcare and healthcare is a human right! #thisishealthcare #plannedparenthoodishealthcare #plannedparenthood

I had a miscarriage last week. I am sharing my experience because I want to break the silence and shame that often comes with pregnancy loss. I also write because my miscarriage has made my commitment to women’s health even stronger. If we truly care about the health of women, children and families, we must commit to policies that provide pregnant women with the care, humanity and dignity that all people deserve.

While visiting @ppmarmonte, I learned that more than 15,000 patients a year turn to them for primary care services, ranging from newborn visits to geriatric care, and including the treatment of complex medical issues and chronic diseases. CEO Stacy Cross and her team know that our patients don't just come to a health center with one need — they come with all of who they are. This affiliate is such an incredible model for what healthcare can and should look like! • Read about my visit in my latest blog post at the link in my bio. #thisishealthcare #plannedparenthood

I’m so grateful to @sherylsandberg for her longstanding commitment to Planned Parenthood and her leadership as a role model for women and girls everywhere. Now, more than ever, Sheryl’s generous support is necessary to help Planned Parenthood fight back against unprecedented attacks on people’s health and rights. As anti-women’s health politicians try to pass extreme abortion bans across the country, our freedom and rights hang in the balance — and we will do whatever it takes to stop these dangerous, unethical, and unconstitutional bans and protect access to reproductive healthcare, including safe, legal abortion care for all. #sherylsandberg #plannedparenthood #flashbackfriday #bansoffmybody

Thrilled to have been at #WeDecide — the first Presidential Forum in recent history exclusively focused on reproductive health and rights! Here is our expectation for every person who wants to be the next President of the United States: • You need to call out these dangerous and unconscionable attacks and you need to defend the right to safe, legal abortion care. • You must fight to protect and expand access to sexual and reproductive healthcare, which IS healthcare. • You must stand with Planned Parenthood.

We will continue to fight the Trump administration in the courts to protect everyone’s fundamental right to healthcare. #protectx #nogagrule #letdocsspeak

Every person deserves the right to control their body, their life, and their future. We cannot live freely and move fully in the world when our basic right to access the reproductive healthcare we need, including safe, legal abortion care, is under attack. Our bodies are our own — if they are not, we cannot be truly free or equal. We will show everyone the strength of our fierce and unrelenting opposition to these bans and any attempt to take away our fundamental right to make decisions about our bodies. Now is the time to unite, stand up, and make sure we all have the opportunity to live full and healthy lives. We won’t tolerate this assault on our reproductive health and rights, and we won’t be silenced. People across the country are ready to stand together, unified and defiant, to say: get your #BansOffMyBody.

In the midst of fighting attacks on our health and our rights, it's important that we take care of ourselves. When one of our staff told me about the 1-minute planking challenge, I knew it would make for a good mini-wellness break! How did we do? #planking #selfcare

Happy Pride!! 🏳️‍🌈🍰😋

Nearly 50 years ago, Sarah Bryant founded the first-ever Planned Parenthood in Charlotte — starting with a red telephone in her living room. And today, we celebrated #ppsouthatlantic’s beautiful new Charlotte health center. • Look at how far we've come! At a time when so many are fighting to take healthcare away, Charlotte emerges as a leader for the nation by expanding its services and its reach. #plannedparenthood #thisishealthcare

I’m a doctor and my job is to take care of women in this country. Today, I am declaring a state of emergency for women’s health in America. This is not a drill. It’s an emergency and a nationwide public health crisis – and we must fight back with everything we have. Visit the link in my bio to read our full report and to learn how you can fight back with us. #emergencyresponse #stopthebans

Today, I'm at the Planned Parenthood health center in St. Louis, Missouri — the last remaining health center that provides abortion care in the state. Last week, Missouri's Governor signed an extreme abortion ban into law, but the state isn't waiting until the law is implemented: they are illegally refusing to renew our license now. If our health center cannot provide abortion care, Missouri will go dark this week — and this will be the first time since Roe that safe, legal abortion care will be inaccessible in an entire state. This is not a drill. This will endanger the health and lives of more than 1 million women of reproductive age in Missouri. This is a real public health crisis — and that's why today we are suing the state of Missouri. #emergencyresponse #stopthebans #abortionrights #abortioncareishealthcare

Abortion care is healthcare and these attacks on our fundamental rights and freedoms are unconscionable. I’m so proud to stand with our pro-women’s health champions in Congress, who are leading the fight to protect reproductive healthcare! @speakerpelosi @repjudychu @repmarciafudge @reploisfrankel @repbarbaralee @repdianadegette @senblumenthal @senatorbaldwin @repbrendalawrence @repterriasewell @jackiespeier @repwilson #actforwomen #stopthebans #abortionrights

Today, we are standing up and speaking out because we have had ENOUGH of politicians who know nothing about women’s bodies, yet continue to make decisions for patients about their health. We will organize, mobilize, and hold accountable all those who are taking away our access to safe, legal abortion care. #stopthebans #wewontgoback

86% of women executives say the ability to plan if and when to have kids has helped them pursue their careers. Reproductive healthcare is healthcare, and when women have access to it, they rise! #nwhw #nationalwomenshealthweek #thisishealthcare

It is time for women, men, and all people to declare that reproductive healthcare is healthcare and healthcare is a human right. We will stand together to defend our right to safe, legal abortion. Text NOBANS to 22422 to join the #stopthebans Day of Action on Tuesday, 5/21! #womensrightsarehumanrights #abortionrights

Just on @velshiruhle to talk about the extreme AL ban and the coordinated attacks on women’s health and rights that we’re seeing across the country. This is unacceptable. #stopthebans

It is unconscionable that American women are more likely to die in childbirth than our own mothers & shameful that Black women continue to die at higher rates than White women. I #marchformoms because healthy children & healthy families start with healthy moms. #beyondmothersday #maternalhealth

It was such an honor to be in my home state last week at the @ppmaryland gala. During my time as the Baltimore City Health Commissioner, I had the privilege of working with this affiliate and I have always been thoroughly impressed by the dedication of the staff.

I’m honored to be included in the #A100 list! #Repost @goldhouseco: Dr. Leana Wen | President, Planned Parenthood Federation of America ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "It was an honor to be offered the incredible privilege of leading Planned Parenthood, an organization that has meant so much to me and my family throughout our lives. My mother, my sister, and I have all been patients at Planned Parenthood, just like 1 in 5 women in America (and we are proud to serve men and non-binary people too!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is the fight of our time - just a few months ago, The Trump-Pence Administration issued their Title X gag rule - trying to take away healthcare from 4 million people, and put a gag on doctors like me to prevent us from providing our patients with full and accurate medical information. ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To fight back, Planned Parenthood joined together with the American Medical Association to sue the Trump administration, and launched our ProtectX campaign with our supporters. Twenty-one Attorneys General have filed a lawsuit as well! I’m honored to stand alongside our supporters and our partners in this fight." #A100List

I’m proud to have joined @powertodecide, @advocatesforyouth, and SIECUS in kicking off #SexEdForAll month on Capitol Hill today! We must strengthen, enhance, and expand sex education efforts to meet the needs and rights of all young people, because the course of their lives should be in their own hands and not in the hands of those seeking to oppress and stigmatize. If passed into law, the Real Education for Healthy Youth Act and the Youth Access to Sexual Health Services Act would get us closer to where we need to be — so that current and future generations can lead lives of choice, and not chance. Thanks to @repcummings @repbarbaralee @repbrendalawrence @repadams for championing pro-sexual and reproductive health policies in Congress! #sexeducation #sexualhealth #thisishealthcare

Thrilled to be in Sacramento for #ppcapitolday! I'm so inspired by these stories from patients, advocates, and staff on why they stand with Planned Parenthood.

Last week, I was in my home state visiting @ppmaryland - one of the oldest affiliates in the @plannedparenthood federation! As a key partner on the @bmore4healthybabies program, which decreased infant mortality in Baltimore by 38% since 2009, I know this affiliate well! It was wonderful to see Chief Medical Officer Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley and meet the terrific staff that cares for their patients every day. Thanks CEO Karen Nelson for having me! #thisishealthcare #ppmaryland #plannedparenthood

I was on @thedailyshow last week to talk about Planned Parenthood’s incredible life-saving work. It was an honor and a privilege to represent our patients & the people we serve, to debunk the lies that @realdonaldtrump has been spreading about abortions later in pregnancy, and to describe how Planned Parenthood is fighting the unethical, illegal Title X gag rule through every avenue. @trevornoah called me "Trump's nightmare" — a badge of honor I proudly wear as we fight for our patients, our rights, and our future! 📷: @thedailyshow #thedailyshow #trevornoah #protectx #plannedparenthood
