This is an amazing organization that really cares about the overall reproductive health of women. The focus is on helping women rather than on profits. The aim of everything they do is to educate women about their reproductive health so that the women can better protect themselves in this world. They have wonderful health workers who really care about women and women's reproductive health issues. They are not just an abortion center; they are there for STD and pregnancy prevention and education, cancer screening, pregancy testing and even adoption services. They also provide free services to women who cannot otherwise afford care. Shame on the uninformed and narrow-minded people standing on the sidewalk who try to discourage women from getting the education and prevention they so need from this clinic.
