I am proud to be a volunteer and supporter of Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (PPGN). This organization provides health services for thousands of women in my State, Washington. Many of my 25 year old daughter's friends, men and women, get their contraceptives and confidential STD testing there. Many of her female friends and some of mine have only one health care provider, Planned Parenthood. PPGN is one of the only sources of low-cost health care for low-income women and I am so very glad that they are there. They provide these general health and reproductive health services for women at great risk to their own lives and, I"m sure, they don't earn fantastic salaries doing it. I am very thankful that PPGN is there for me, my sons and daughter, and our friends.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the 1970s when I needed Planned Parenthood the most.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
effect very tough laws and enforcement of those laws at the Federal level that would deter the extremist factions and individuals who threaten the lives of those who work at Planned Parenthood. PPGN needs more protection and I believe they are not getting it.
