In the past four weeks, we
have flooded the legislature with nearly 4,000 phone calls urging our elected
officials to reject the Governor’s proposed cut to the state family planning
program – Family PACT. Thank you for your help! We are making an impact –
but we’re not done yet!
The budget is still not final,
so we can’t let up the pressure now. Cuts to the Family PACT program would force
millions of women, men, and teens to go without affordable birth control, cancer
screenings, and STD testing and treatment. Our state’s leadership needs to hear
from you – if you live in California please call Assemblymember Karen Bass, Senator Darrell Steinberg, and
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger TODAY!
Assemblymember Karen Bass: 916-319-2047
Senator Darrell Steinberg: 916-651-4006
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger: 916-445-2841
Hello, my name is ____________ . I’m calling

health care to millions of women including cancer screenings, birth control and
STD testing and treatment.
Can we count on the
___________(Assemblymember/Senator/Governor) to support the Committee’s vote and
protect family planning?

email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know who
Let’s make sure our message is heard loud and clear in Sacramento!
Thank you for all you do for women’s health in
and ways to take action to protect family planning services.
Until next time,
these have been my Choice Words!
