Planned Parenthood to host women's health forum for Democrats

Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the healthcare organization's political arm, is hosting a women's health forum June 22 in Columbia, S.C., for Democratic presidential candidates, according to The New York Times

Sixteen candidates have committed to the event. It will be held alongside the Democratic Party convention, which takes place the same weekend in Columbia. The event comes after several Republican-led states have passed restrictive abortion laws.
