Do you believe in marriage equality? Join us at the March on Springfield for Marriage Equality in Illinois on Tuesday, October 22! We need as much support as we can get to help secure final passage of Illinois Senate Bill 10.

The US House is at it again. This weekend they passed another bill to attack access to women's healthcare. The bill not only delays a key part of Obamacare, it allows bosses to deny women any health care, including birth control, on "moral or religious grounds."

Congress should focus on jobs and the economy (and a working government!), not on pushing an extreme agenda against birth control.

Obamacare is already working for millions of women, and it’s about to make a lifesaving difference for even more.

So what exactly are the opponents of Obamacare so afraid of? Test your knowledge—see how well you know the law and its benefits (every right answer generates a 10 cent donation to Planned Parenthood!): http://bit.ly/18vPabz

The independent, nonpartisan advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood of Illinois.
Introduction
Planned Parenthood Illinois Action (PPIA) is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood of Illinois (PPIL).

Planned Parenthood Illinois Action engages in educational and electoral activity, including public education campaigns, grassroots organizing, and legislative advocacy, on behalf of commonsense policies that protect the reproductive health and rights of women, teens, and families.

The Planned Parenthood Illinois Action Political Action Committee (PAC) is a nonpartisan political action committee committed to supporting pro-choice, pro-family planning candidates for office.

Planned Parenthood Illinois Action is a visible and passionate supporter of policies that enable Illinoisans to access comprehensive sexual and reproductive health care, education, and information. Whether talking to members of Congress, members of the Illinois General Assembly, parents or community leaders, we fight for an agenda that promotes women’s health and access to reproductive health care, as well as an agenda that protects the health and safety of young people by providing them with comprehensive sex education.

Planned Parenthood Illinois Action has thousands of activists, supporters, and donors statewide. Our action network helps pass and defeat legislation, elects public officials, and influences the political climate in the state of Illinois.
