republican lawmakers have demanded the closure of their states' abortion clinics, calling abortions "non-essential" medical procedures. Under the Stimulus Package(s) parents are entitled to receive a stimulus check in the amount of $500 for each child. Since republican lawmakers argue that life starts at conception ALL PREGNANT WOMEN SHOULD DEMAND THEIR $500+ for their unborn child(ren) from those ridiculous sidewinder lawmakers!
Hey there! I'm a person who sews and I've got supplies to make a bunch of emergency N95 masks. Do you guys need something like that?
‪Just saw this on FB from my local councilman. I am so confused on what the city is trying to pull here and scared. Any ideas?
FYI: the "tickets" link on your 11/9 "Cocktails for a Cause - After the Austin Dinner" event is broken, 404. At least, it was for me.

Do any Planned Parenthood locations have the capability of performing mammograms?
Can you private message me with the location of the 9/21 brunch? I rsvp'd, can't figure out where to find the location. I know it's a safety concern.
Hi y’all! I'm Lizz, co-creator of The Daily Show, and my group, Abortion Access Front, is coming to Austin and Houston! On 9/17 we’re so pumped to bring Do Re , an incredible evening of the most horrifying and hilariously s*xist songs performed by some of Austin’s favorite women to ever rock a mic! We’re also having a talk back featuring Austin’s Amy Hagstrom Miller from Whole Women’s Health and our friends from the Texas Freedom Network, who will tell you how to get active to support local clinics. Then, on 9/21 we’ll be in Houston with a night of standup comedy featuring me, Joyelle Johnson, and Mehran Khaghani and a talk back from local orgs in Houston. Along the way we’ll also be visiting clinics to make sure staff feels cared for and help with whatever they need.

We would truly appreciate if you could let people in your network know we're coming, they may enjoy the show! If interested, you can buy tickets here: www.aafront.org/tour

Hope to see you there!

Because of systemic racism in healthcare, getting s*xual and reproductive services is a social justice issue in Black communities. Planned Parenthood is proud to work alongside Black leaders to create a more equitable future.

Debido a la discriminación racial sistémica en el Sistema de salud, el acceso a la atención de la salud s*xual y reproductive es un problema de justicia social en las comunidades negras. Estamos comprometidos a ayudar a desmantelar estructuras y barreras injustas, creadas por el racismo institucional, para crear un future más equitativo.

Polycystic O***y Syndrom (PCOS) can cause changes in your body’s ability to release an egg (ovulate) and can lead to irregular periods, ovarian cysts, trouble getting pregnant, and more. While there’s no special test for PCOS, a doctor or nurse (like staff at Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas) can help you get answers. You don’t have to go through this alone 💖

We have some great news to share with our border community!

El Paso City Council APPROVED a resolution that protects pregnant people by deprioritizing the investigation of any pregnant person seeking or receiving abortion care. Representatives Annello, Ca**les, Fierro, Hernandez, Kennedy, Rivera, and Salcido voted in favor of the resolution!

To help reassure our local leaders that the majority of El Pasoans support access to safe and legal reproductive healthcare, thank your commissioners and council members for their leadership!

Even though is coming to a close, it’s important to remember year-around how important it is to schedule a pap smear! Visit: https://www.plannedparenthood.org/planned-parenthood-greater-texas/cervical-cancer-awareness

Some important reminders:

1️⃣ Pap smears catch cervical cancer when it matters most
2️⃣ You’ve got nothing to be afraid of
3️⃣ It’s quick!
4️⃣ For most folks, regular pap smears are only once every three years
5️⃣ Planned Parenthood is your trusted source of cervical health

ICYMI – El Paso County passed a resolution recognizing Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas for our work to provide healthcare for patients in the border region and Texas, especially to those whose ability to access healthcare has been limited or restricted.

Thank you Commissioner Iliana Holguin Pct. 3, Commissioner David Stout Pct. 2 (author), and Elect Sergio Coronado for El Paso County Commissioner Precinct 4, pictured here with Ophra Leyser-Whalen, PHD, PPGT Board of Directors, Naoimi Fertmen, El Paso Community PPGT Board Chair, El Paso Health Center Manager Miranda Aguirre and El Paso Community Outreach Specialist Clementina Canava, for supporting our mission and the essential services we provide by proposing and passing the resolution. Not pictured is County Commissioner Carlos Leon, Pct. 1 who we also thank for voting in support of the resolution.

Access to care has never been more vital. Since Texas banned abortion last June, the consequences have been devastating. Texans are being forced to travel out of state for care – if they can afford it. Others are left on their own or face carrying pregnancies against their will. Planned Parenthood health center doors are open, and vital healthcare like birth control, emergency contraception, pregnancy testing, and other essential s*xual healthcare and education are here for Texans who need them.

Have you booked your cervical cancer screening appt? 👀 visit https://www.plannedparenthood.org/planned-parenthood-greater-texas/wellness to get started!

Check out ways to keep your cervix healthy:

1️⃣ Get regular wellness exams that include HPV and/or Pap tests (your doc or nurse can help you figure out which tests make sense for you and when to get screened)

2️⃣ Get the HPV vaccine and encourage others to do the same

3️⃣ Use condoms or dental dams every time you have vaginal, a**l or oral s*x to reduce chances of spreading HPV

4️⃣ Consider not smoking - it increases your risk of cervical cancer if you have a high-risk type of HPV

We totally get that shopping for condoms in store is a little embarrassing sometimes (especially when the cashier adds a little line during checkout 🤭)! BUT condoms are worth getting! Here’s some good info everyone should know!

1️⃣ Using condoms every time you have oral, a**l or vaginal s*x is the best way of reducing STIs
2️⃣ Condoms are the only type of birth control that can protect against STDs (even if you’re using another form of birth control, it’s a good idea to also use condoms to prevent s*xually transmitted infections)
3️⃣ Condoms made of lambskin or other animal membranes don’t protect against STDs, only pregnancy (only synthetic condoms prevent STDs)
4️⃣ Dental dams and internal condoms are other barrier methods that can increase protection

Grumet: Paxton seeks to crush Planned Parenthood's ability to provide nonabortion care

“This case is a bare-knuckled attempt by Paxton to use the courts to financially crush a health care provider — even as our state ranks among the worst in the country for women trying to access quality, affordable care.”

WEIGHT CAN CHANGE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTIVES ❗

If you take such as Plan B One Step, Take Action, My Way, and you weigh more than 165 pounds, it won’t be as effective. Ella is another option for those who weigh 195 pounds and under.

Alternatives ➡️ no matter how much you weigh, certain IUDs work as emergency contraception if you get it within 5 days of unprotected s*x (it’s very effective!)

Access emergency contraception from the comfort of your home through our app, Planned Parenthood Direct, or set up an appointment with us at ppgreatertx.org/wellness to discuss contraceptives with one of our trusted, empathetic clinicians!

Abortion bans don't take complex circumstances into account | Opinion

We are proud to share a powerful op-ed written by Helen Schafer, one of our former health educators from Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas. We highly encourage you to read and share!

"In this journey, I have shared deeply personal experiences with pregnant patients, whose stories have shaped my views on abortions. What I’ve found is every situation is so unique and personal; generalized laws limiting one’s ability to decide do a disservice to both individuals and society."
