CREDO Mobile stands with Planned Parenthood’s #BusinessForBC campaign
As the Trump administration rolls back the Affordable Care Act’s birth control benefit, allowing employers to discriminate against women, CREDO Mobile remains dedicated to providing no-cost birth control coverage for our employees.
So that’s why we’re proud to be part of Planned Parenthood’s #BusinessForBC campaign which calls on employers to publicly commit to providing their workers with birth control coverage.
Affordable, accessible health care, including contraception, is not only critical for personal health, but also to supporting equal opportunity. CREDO Mobile will always work to ensure gender equality in our company, and we will never stop fighting for the rights of women across America.
In fact, CREDO is currently fighting to protect women’s access to birth control through grassroots activism. In the past few weeks, CREDO has collected more than 77,000 public comments from our members opposing the Department of Health and Human Services’ new rule that guts the Affordable Care Act’s birth control benefit.
Since our founding, we’ve supported organizations on the front lines of protecting women’s health, and, as Planned Parenthood’s largest corporate donor, CREDO has donated over $3 million to the organization, in addition to other reproductive rights organizations.
As Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards put it, “As employers do make [this] pledge, it’s a way of normalizing…such a fundamental right. Politicians are far behind — certainly where women are, but also where a lot of businesses are.”
We stand with Planned Parenthood, and we encourage other businesses to do the same.
