Authorities in Texas who falsely claimed that Planned Parenthood sells fetal body parts are prohibited from withholding federal Medicaid funds from Planned Parenthood, a federal judge ruled today. This is a significant legal victory for Planned Parenthood, which is under renewed conservative attack under President Donald Trump.
Indie-pop hero Halsey has just helped prove that even if Twitter can’t save the world, it can certainly assist in changing it.
Following Trump’s inauguration, the immensely popular “New Americana” singer has made her support of reproductive health services like Planned Parenthood — services at direct risk under a new government — well known.
Her support came in the form of cash, and lots of it.
With Congress set to defund Planned Parenthood and millions of women and allies on the march across America, what better time to reacquaint yourself with this amazing, vital, brave organization that has withstood domestic terror, vile slander, and endless depredations to provide services to women for more than a century.
