A pro-women organization founded in the 60's.
Contrary to popular belief, Planned Parenthood offers services such as breast-cancer screenings, STD screenings, general gynecology appointments, pregnancy testing, genetic counseling, and rape counseling.
So in reality, "pro-lifers" who picket outside of PP clinics shoving propaganda into the hands of many and yelling "you're going to hell" are often preaching to girls who are getting a mammogram, not an abortion.
PP writes referals to abortion clinics, and this is only done after ALL other options are discussed with the patient.
Most clinics do not administer abortions, but rather refer the patient to a safe clinic.
They make medical services cheap and affordable to women in need.
In philidelphia a Planned Parenthood clinic was having a problem with 'pro-life' groups harassing patients. They ran a program called Pledge-a-picket in which people would pledge an amount of money for every protester that month. All proceeds benefitted planned parenthood. When "pro-life"rs found this out, they left.

A private corporation that illegally enjoys the benefits of any government created service. Luckily for both parties, the American people are either too gullible to know, too underequipped or afraid to take action, or too apathetic to care.
Last week, after the riots at Planned Parenthood got out of control, 4 squads of state police, a SWAT team with riot shields, and a unit of the National Guard were called to "resolve" the issue.

In 2011, WikiLeaks uncovered documents detailing illegal funneling of U.S. tax dollars into Planned Parenthood assets. Those involved in this revelation were hunted down and WikiLeaks was found and shut down permanently from that web address. They now act as if they revealed that to the public all along and there was nothing illegal about it, which, unfortunately, it is, according to the Constitution.
