Help Stop the Boehner-Stearns Witch Hunt Against Planned Parenthood
Anti-choice politicians tried desperately to defund Planned Parenthood earlier this year. They were even willing to shut down the entire government to see funding for birth control and cancer screenings eliminated.
Our opponents didn’t win that fight, but they haven’t given up their political witch hunt against Planned Parenthood and its patients.
Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-FL), who is the chairman of an oversight subcommittee in the U.S. House of Representatives – and one of John Boehner’s political allies – is demanding Planned Parenthood turn over financial and other records going back more than a decade.
It’s sheer hypocrisy: the very same lawmakers who complain about big government and wasteful spending want to use our taxpayer dollars to investigate Planned Parenthood, an organization that already meets rigorous ethical and medical standards, financial reporting requirements, and undergoes regular audits.
Help us fight back against this new attack from Congress by signing our letter today. We will deliver it to Rep. Stearns and Speaker John Boehner.
Anti-choice politicians have launched a politically motivated investigation of Planned Parenthood. Help us fight back against this new attack by signing our letter today.

Stop the Politically Motivated Investigation of Planned Parenthood
To Rep. Cliff Stearns and Speaker John Boehner:
We strongly oppose your politically motivated investigation of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and its affiliates.
Planned Parenthood provides much-needed health care to millions of women and men across the country. At a time when health-care costs are skyrocketing, Planned Parenthood's affordable health care serves those in need. Federal dollars help pay for services including Pap tests, breast-cancer exams, and STD testing and treatment. It's time for Congress to stop wasting our taxpayer dollars to fund its obsession with attacking Planned Parenthood. Instead, lawmakers should focus on the country's real, pressing issues not political witch hunts.
