Planned Parenthood Advocates of Kansas & Mid-Missouri is ready to fight back against lawmakers who want to ban abortion, block access to birth control, and strip us of the rights we’ve worked so hard to secure.

We’re ready to stop those who want to stand between our families and quality, affordable medical care.

We’ve had enough of politicians who ignore the majority — the voices of citizens, voters, and medical and public health professionals. We fought to stop legislation that claims to be about protecting women’s health and safety, but takes away access to safe health care, and now we’re taking it to the ballot box.

We’re determined to elect women’s health champions who will stand with us, and get rid of out-of-touch politicians who have been forcing their own ideological agendas on Kansans and Missourians.

We’re watching more than ever in 2014, we’re voting, we’re fighting back, and we will win. We’re ready for this fight — can we count you in? Sign up to help NOW!
