Good heavens. You heard his promises. You bought his koolaid. You voted for him. Why the hell are you all afraidy and calling Planned Parenthood now?
THE RIGHT WING Shocked Trump Voters Are Calling Planned Parenthood Apparently, they had no idea they might lose their access to health care.
“Mike Pence unfortunately has said he would end that access to care… I run into women every single day who say, ‘You know that Planned Parenthood is the place I go for my annual exam; I don’t know where we’d go without you.'”
And while the battle to defund Planned Parenthood is heavily partisan, the organization’s clients are not.
“The women who come to Planned Parenthood, they are Republicans, they’re Democrats, they’re Trump voters. These are women who had no idea that their health care access was at stake,” Richards noted.
One week before the election, a Politico poll showed that, unlike Republicans in Congress, Trump voters predominantly support federal funding for Planned Parenthood.
“We’re seeing this as women are calling us and saying, ‘I voted for Donald Trump, but I had no idea I might lose my access to health care’; that’s the point we’re going to be making,” Richards explained.
