Dani Harper (left, front) sits at the Planned Parenthood tent at the Kentuckiana Pride Festival. “We’re asking anyone who comes up to tell us about why the Affordable Care Act is important to them, and why Planned Parenthood is important to them so we can then tell Mitch McConnel who is trying to defund those types of things, we can tell him about all of his constituents that support the ACA and support Planned Parenthood. So we’re trying to encourage people to share their stories with us.” (photo by Kathryn Harrington)
