I stand with Planned Parenthood. Always.
Things Planned Parenthood has done for me:
-As a teenager, provided condom resources without judgement, that were used to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
-As a young adult, provided Birth Control resources and then birth control education when I had bad reactions to several to help prevent unwanted pregnancy.
-Provided STI screening, because lets face it, sometimes mistakes happen and you just don’t know the history of everyone.
-Both helped me identify my first pregnancy and miscarriage when I was 20 years old and provided medical assistance and counseling resources.
-Continued to supply me Birth Control as I had no health insurance from the time I was 18 until I married my husband.
-Confirmed the pregnancy of my son and provided countless resources for us without every once mentioning abortion.
*There are many reasons to consider an Abortion but Planned Parenthood does not have a secret abortion quota agenda, they help young (and not so young) adults learn and grow. They EDUCATE at low costs to those in need.
I grew up in a family where Sex was a bad word and I had NO ONE to help me understand anything. Without Planned Parenthood I quite honestly have no idea how different my life would be. Planned Parenthood is far far more than just for Abortions, they genuinely helped me start the family I wanted when I wanted it and educated me far more (without judgement) than my family ever did.
