House and Senate Committees are meeting this week to discuss proposed cuts to critical family planning and teen pregnancy prevention programs.
As Republicans, we know the significance of proven-effective, cost-effective programs that aim to reduce the rates of unintended pregnancy, teen pregnancy and abortion. These are the kind of fiscally conservative, family-first policies that Republicans should take the lead on. Click here to find out what you can do!
Republican Colorado state Representative Don Coram is co-sponsored a bill aimed at preventing teen pregnancy and keeping kids in school. The measure would expand a successful pilot program that has been running for over a decade:
"It teaches abstinence, but that doesn't always work so we’re also teaching [teens] things they are not learning anywhere else on how to prevent pregnancies and helping those that actually do become pregnant," Coram said.
It may be Summer – but RMC isn’t taking a vacation. We are on the Hill every week and we need your continued support. Our ongoing Campaign for Common Ground brings us face-to-face with BOTH pro- and anti- choice Republicans to talk about the importance of preventive family planning and teen pregnancy prevention programs. But we cannot do this without your continued support.
