Planned Parenthood ad features women from Wis.
0 0

A new national ad campaign for Planned Parenthood tells the stories of two women from Wisconsin.

Lori Hawkins is a substitute teacher, and she lives in House Speaker Paul Ryan's congressional district. She says she was underinsured when she was 26, so she used the group for her preventative care.

Hawkins says she learned that she had tumors and cysts in her ovaries. She says because of the treatment, she was still able to have children.

The campaign is in response to proposed changes from House Republicans. They want to block Planned Parenthood from receiving reimbursements from Medicaid.

A woman from Hartford is also featured.
