Birth control is basic preventive health care for women. In fact, 99% of sexually active women have used birth control at some point in their lives, for a whole host of health care reasons.
#plannedparenthoodis 3,724,558 visits for birth control.
The Supreme Court just ruled that bosses can deny employees coverage of birth control. This is a major FAIL for American women and their families. Bosses of private, for-profit businesses should not be able to interfere in women’s health decisions. The decision to use birth control is between a woman and her doctor, not her boss.
This isn’t over. We’re not going to let a handful of extreme bosses & politicians turn back the clock—we’re moving forward, not backward.

It’s National Men’s Health Week!
Planned Parenthood of Southern New England is highlighting the need for regular checkups — and, if they are sexually active, regular testing for sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV — as a critical part of staying healthy for men of all ages.
“PPSNE is proud to be a source of care for men in Connecticut and Rhode Island and to answer any questions they may have about their health,” said Dr. Timothy Spurrell, Medical Director of PPSNE. “A visit to a health care provider is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have — nothing is off-limits. We are here to give you accurate, nonjudgmental information and advice.”
Planned Parenthood provides basic health care for men, including testing and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, HIV testing, and sexual health information and education. Getting tested for STDs is a basic part of staying healthy and taking control of your sex life — and it is easier than ever before.
In the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood has nearly doubled the number of male patients we see nationally. Between 2002 and 2012, there was an 83 percent increase in Planned Parenthood male clients.
Planned Parenthood is a trusted, local resource for convenient and confidential services for men, women and young people, including STD/STI testing, HIV testing and counseling, cancer screenings, emergency contraception and more. Planned Parenthood of Southern New England has a sliding fee scale based on one’s income and participates in many insurance plans.

Planned Parenthood of Southern New England, Planned Parenthood Votes! RI and Celinda Lake with Lake Research Partners released data from a recent poll gauging Rhode Islander’s views on issues related to women’s reproductive health services during a press conference this morning.
The key findings from our survey show, in Rhode Island, those who believe abortion should be generally available way outnumber those who believe abortion should be illegal 8 to 1.
The survey also found, Democrats and Independents favor Planned Parenthood by wide margins. Republicans are not more unfavorable- rather they are evenly split.
We want Rhode Island voters to know that their legislature isn’t voting for women’s health issues and keeping with the voters’ values.
A note to RI voters: Keep an eye on your elected representatives.
