Tucson Press Conference

    May 4, 2017 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
    Rep. Martha McSally's office
    4400 E Broadway Blvd
    Tucson, AZ 85711


    Martha McSally and House Republican leadership just said to women in America: you don’t have a right to choose where you go for birth control and cancer screenings and it doesn’t matter if you have nowhere else to go. “Defunding” Planned Parenthood would have a devastating impact on the 2.5 million people who rely on Planned Parenthood health centers for preventive health care, including birth control, cancer screenings, and STD testing and treatment.

    One in five women in this country rely on Planned Parenthood for care and we will not go quietly into the night as politicians vote to take away OUR care. Constituents across the country will continue to speak up and speak out to defeat this bill and efforts to ‘defund’ Planned Parenthood

    Join Planned Parenthood & Organizing for Action for a Press conference outside Representative McSally’s Tucson Office TODAY at 4 pm to make sure she knows what we—her constituents—think about her vote on this horrible piece of legislation. Rally to follow right after.

    The American Health Care Act is the worst piece of legislation for women in a generation, and the Senate must reject this bill.

    See you today at 4pm at McSally’s office, 4400 E Broadway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85711.”
