According to the organization, the proposal includes a provision that would block millions of people from going to Planned Parenthood for preventive care, including birth control, cancer screenings, and STD testing and treatment.

“Policy on women’s health care should not be written by a small group of male politicians behind closed doors,” Dawn Laguens, executive vice president at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said in a statement.

Republicans are running out of time to pass a repeal of ObamaCare. The deadline for using a special budgetary procedure is Sept. 30.

At the end of the month, Republicans will not be able to use rules known as “budget reconciliation” to bypass a Democratic filibuster in the Senate.
