ACTION ALERT: Speak up to increase funding to CO’s Family Planning Program
Over the last year, and in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2022 decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, communities across the country are experiencing a significant decrease in access to reproductive health care, including family planning services.
Colorado has stepped up to provide timely care for all who need it. The passage of important reproductive health policies puts our state in the position to proudly provide critical reproductive health care to both Coloradans and out-of-state travelers.
However, the historic progress Colorado has made in expanding access to family planning services is at risk due to stagnant funding and limited provider capacity.
Colorado has the opportunity to alleviate some of the pressure on families and reproductive health providers by investing in a program that is proven to work: the Family Planning Program at the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE). By investing additional dollars into this proven program, Colorado can continue to improve maternal and infant health, help young people achieve their academic and professional goals, and help families have children when the time is right for them.
Ensuring all Coloradans can access family planning services helps our communities thrive. Please support increased funding for CDPHE’s Family Planning Program!
