Save California's Family PACT Program!

Governor Schwarzenegger has proposed cuts to California's family planning program - Family PACT. This cut would hugely impact funding for Planned Parenthood and other reproductive health care clinics and would force millions to go without reliable birth control, cancer screenings, STD testing & treatment.

If you're a California resident, please call TODAY (votes are set to happen on Monday):

Speaker Karen Bass at 916-319-2047

Speaker-Elect John A Perez at 916-319-2046

Sample Script:

"Hi, my name is ____________ and I live in [city in California]. I'm calling to urge the (Speaker/Speaker-Elect) to protect family planning services. The Governor's proposed cut to Family PACT is bad for the budget and bad for women's health. Can I count on her/him to reject cuts to family planning?"

Spread the word to everyone you know!
