    Planned Parenthood Action Fund President Cecile Richards issued the following statement in response to the President's State of the Union address this evening:

    “The State of the Union for women’s reproductive health under President Bush is dismal. President Bush continues to lead this country in the wrong direction, and women, families and teens are paying the price. For the first time in 14 years the teen birth rate has risen, yet President Bush says nothing to address this issue. President Bush’s administration has wasted more than $1 billion on dangerous abstinence-only programs, yet he continues to pour money into these ineffective programs that do nothing to help prevent teen pregnancy. At every turn, the Bush administration has put politics above medicine when it comes to the health of women and families and attacked women's access to reproductive health care.
