From Planned Parenthood: EASY ACCESS TO BIRTH CONTROL IN DANGER Urgent Action Need NOW

As a safety net provider, PPAC (Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California) is sponsoring Assembly Bill 2151 authored by Assemblymember Hannah-Beth Jackson, which will maintain current Medi-Cal reimbursements for birth control and condoms.

Currently, PP is able to provide patients with birth control pills for little or no cost at the time of service. If AB 2151 is not passed by the state legislature, PP Los Angeles will face a loss of 2.5 million dollars--a loss this large would force us to reduce or eliminate some of the health programs we currently offer. Send a fax to your State Senator to ensure that PP and other safety-net providers are not forced to cut vital services that our communities depend on.
Urge your State Senator to vote “AYE” on AB 2151
