Christy's Story | Planned Parenthood Video
A Planned Parenthood doctor caught Christy’s cervical cancer and saved her life. "Without a resource like Planned Parenthood, I probably wouldn’t be alive. I wouldn’t have known about my cancer, until it was too late. They caught it early. And the way it advanced after we knew about it, proves to me, that I was so very lucky." This is Christy's story of care. She lives in Hartford, Wisconsin.

We went to Planned Parenthood. I would go in, get my birth control, and have my yearly pap smears. And that was the only health care I got. I was healthy, I was young. When I was 24, the pap smear that year came back abnormal. I didn’t go to Planned Parenthood to make a political statement. I went to see my doctor. I went to see the only doctor I had at the time. And that doctor saved my life.
Lori’s Story | Planned Parenthood Video
Lori, a mother of two from House Speaker Paul Ryan’s district in Wisconsin, credits Planned Parenthood with preserving her ability to bear children. “While still a young teacher, I called Planned Parenthood for an appointment after experiencing severe pains in my low abdomen. I was given an appointment for that same day. A large cyst and multiple benign tumors were detected in my ovaries. Planned Parenthood connected me with a gynecologist who removed them in time to save a healthy portion of one of my ovaries. It was enough, because years later, that same doctor delivered both my daughter and my son. I am forever grateful to Planned Parenthood for their quick action during my health emergency. It is because of their care, in part, that my husband and I were able to grow our family. I continue to support Planned Parenthood so that others may also benefit from their capable and compassionate health care.” See supporters in action: https://www.istandwithpp.org/supporters See more Planned Parenthood stories: https://www.istandwithpp.org/stories TAKE ACTION: https://www.istandwithpp.org/take-action Transcript: GFX: Lori, Mom, Substitute Teacher, Wisconsin Lori: When I was 26 years old, I was underinsured and so for my preventative care, I used Planned Parenthood. Then one day I was having these horrible pains in my lower abdomen and I called my doctor at Planned Parenthood. Found out that I had tumors and cysts in my ovaries and that it was a health emergency. They were able to save a half of an ovary, and that was enough because I was able to have children. So I’m grateful to Planned Parenthood.
Courtney’s Story: I Wouldn’t be a Mother without Planned Parenthood | Planned Parenthood Video
When Courtney was 17, she was diagnosed with Endometriosis. Her doctor at the time recommended she go on hormonal birth control to manage her pain symptoms and save her fertility. When she began graduate school, she didn’t have insurance and couldn’t afford her birth control. So she went to Planned Parenthood where she was able to get the birth control she needed, at a cost she could afford. Thanks to the care she received at Planned Parenthood, Courtney is now a proud mother of two beautiful children. She stands with Planned Parenthood because: “I really believe that without Planned Parenthood, I would not be a mother.” Learn more about Endometriosis here: https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/womens-health/endometriosis
Planned Parenthood Saves Transgender Lives
Meet Brooke. Brooke is just one of the many LGBTQ folks who would be harmed by a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, now making its way through Congress. The ACA repeal bill would defund Planned Parenthood, which provides safe, affordable care without judgment or stigma to 2.5 million people each year. That includes more than 4.2 million tests and treatments for STIs and more than 650,000 HIV tests. Planned Parenthood is also one of the country’s largest providers of health care to transgender people. As Brooke notes, "An attack on one of us is an attack on all." We in the LGBTQ community must stand together, and that means supporting the work of Planned Parenthood. Text "SAVE ACA" to 30644 to tell your Senator how important it is that we preserve the Affordable Care Act.
Make LGBTQ Elders Feel Welcome and Cared For: Join HRC and SAGE's Long-term Care Equality Index
Research shows that upwards of five percent of long-term care residents are members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender community. The Human Rights Campaign Foundation and SAGE believe that most long-term care communities want LGBTQ elders to feel welcome and get the care they need. That’s why the Long-term Care Equality Index, also known as the LEI, exists. The LEI encourages and helps long-term care communities adopt policies and best practices that provide culturally competent and responsive care to LGBTQ elders. Participating in the LEI creates an environment committed to not just ending discrimination for the LGBTQ community but advancing inclusion for all residents, visitors, and employees. Sign up for the Long-Term Care Equality Index today. http://www.TheLEI.org

Hillary was raised in a suburb of Illinois where she attended public school and was raised a Methodist by her parents. She attended Wellesley College, and went on to study law at Yale. After attending Yale Law School, she went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, going door to door in New Bedford, Massachusetts. After serving as a lawyer for the Congressional Committee investigating President Nixon, she moved to Arkansas where she taught law and ran legal clinics representing poor people. She co-founded Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families, one of the state’s first child advocacy groups. As First Lady under President Bill Clinton, Hillary tenaciously led the fight to reform our health care system so that all our families have access to the care they need at affordable prices. Hillary led the U.S. delegation to Beijing to attend the UN Fourth World Conference on Women and gave a groundbreaking speech, declaring that “human rights are women's rights and women's rights are human rights once and for all”—inspiring women worldwide and helping to galvanize a global movement for women’s rights and opportunities. Hillary was then elected to the U.S. Senate, becoming the first woman senator from New York. She repeatedly worked across the aisle to get things done, including working alongside Republicans after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. When Congress wouldn't do enough for rural areas and small towns, Hillary didn’t back down. She launched innovative partnerships with the tech industry and provided support to local colleges and small businesses. When President Obama asked Hillary to serve as his secretary of state, she answered the call to public service once again. She was a forceful champion for human rights, internet freedom, and rights and opportunities for women and girls, LGBT people and young people all around the globe. Now she’s running for President because everyday Americans need a champion and she wants to be that champion. ABOUT THE HILLARY CLINTON YOUTUBE CHANNEL Welcome to Hillary Clinton’s YouTube Channel.

Paid Leave for All Launch Video
Every one of us will need to give or receive care in our lifetimes, whether to welcome a new child, heal from illness ourselves, help a loved one recover, or to ease their passing. We believe that everyone should be able to take time to care for themselves or a loved one without risking their job or paycheck. Being there for family is what matters—no exceptions.
