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.

Should've been named Unplanned Parenthood to avoid confusion.
Planned Parenthood centers are almost always located in areas with high minority populations, who apparently can't afford condoms.

An NGO that mostly gives educational information to people. They are a source for the pill, other contraceptives, Plan B aka emergency contraception, STI testing, HIV testing and counseling, pregnancy testing and counseling, abortion care. The organization's main principle is that every person has the right to decide when they are going to have children, how many they want them, and they believe that the best way to do accomplish this is age-appropriate, comprehensive sex ed including abstinence and information on protection should one choose to become sexually active. They are pro-choice and work through a large volunteer base to ensure that reproductive freedoms are not impinged on.
Planned Parenthood speakers came to my school today and taught us that people can get STIs from oral sex.

The Planned Parenthood people gave us a talk about sexual responsibility.

I went to Planned Parenthood to get tested. I was on the pill and I've only been sleeping with my boyfriend of 6 months. I didn't know that I should we both should have gotten tested before giving up condoms. They weren't judgmental and they treated me really well.

I went to the ER after one of my classmates raped me. They didn't tell me about emergency contraception. I found out I was pregnant a month later and I got abortion care from Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood is trying to reduce the rates of teen pregnancy, STIs and abortions in the US. Currently, we have the HIGHEST rate of all three in comparison to any other other Western/developed country. I don't know why people aren't doing more to advocate responsible choices.

Killers of our future doctors and scientists who would have found the cure to cancer and AIDS, teachers, Presidents, mothers, fathers, defenders of our nation, preachers of the gospel, future big brothers and big sisters, and emotions.

AKA - THE DEVIL'S ADVOCATE.
Planned Parenthood says that partial birth abortion is needed when a woman's health is at risk. Most women that have carried a baby to term and delivered know that breeched birth is very dangerous. How can putting someone in danger get them out of danger?
