Here they go again.
Republicans in Congress have introduced another bill to cut off women’s access to health care. This time they are trying to eliminate Title X, the only federal program devoted to providing low-income women with family planning services, birth control, well-woman visits, and STD and cancer screenings.1
Why do Republicans want to cut a program that not only provides vital medical care to nearly 4.6 million women but saved around two billion dollars last year?2 Because a quarter of Title X funds go to Planned Parenthood clinics. And there’s no better way to score political points with your extremist, anti-woman base, than to attack Planned Parenthood, no matter the consequences for women and their families.

U.S. taxpayers hand the hugely profitable oil industry up to $5 billion a year in tax subsidies. And what do we get in return? Ocean-killing spills, toxic air pollution and an unsustainably warming planet. We get a climate-denial machine running 24/7 to oppose alternative energy.
