Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc.

Rating: 5 stars   2 reviews

Issues: Civil Rights, Health, Reproductive Rights

Location: 434 West 33rd St New York NY 10001 USA

Mission: Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual's right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life, strong family relationships, and population stability.

Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is:

to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual; to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services; to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality; to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications.

I have been a "member" since 1984 and they have always been consistent regarding the mission of helping people. Politicians often try to paint PPFA as evil, but that is not true, period. Keep up the good work.

For me, Planned Parenthood has three important goals: first, to ensure that children are born into loving, caring families where they are wanted and welcomed; second, to help women of limited income get good health care, especially during pregnancy; and third, to help control the growth of human population in the interests of maintaining a sustainable number of us on our finite planet.--Julie Spickler
