Governor Wolf will join President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards and women’s healthcare advocates for a roundtable discussion on the future and importance of Planned Parenthood funding and women’s health care access in Pennsylvania.

Earlier this week, a women’s health care rally was held in Harrisburg where advocates gathered against the proposed federal cuts to Title X. Governor Wolf released a statement in support of those who attended the rally and on the importance of continuing access to women’s health care services across the Commonwealth.

“The attacks on women’s reproductive health care and organizations like Planned Parenthood put women, especially in rural and underserved communities, at risk of having extremely limited access to essential health services,” said Governor Wolf. “I will veto any measure that seeks to prevent women from accessing health care services or providers that they or their doctor deem appropriate for their own health.”
