International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region
October 16, 2012
I am a retired OB/GYN. For more than thirty years I had a private practice that served women with insurance and medicaid. I worked for Planned Parenthood in several different roles, as a volunteer while a student, as a board member when I was a doctor, and as a medical director near the end of my career. There are many women who do not have access to health care because they are not on medicaid and they do not have insurance. There are also younger women who do not have access because of fear and ignorance. Planned Parenthood is the only organization that reaches out to all women, rich and poor, young and old, educated and illiterate. All are served.

I am a retired OB/GYN. I spent my working life trying to meet the needs of women in my local area, both under and over privileged, for education and services that promote reproductive health and family planning. I want to continue to promote those goals through my charitable giving. Pathfinder does a great job using donors' money to actually make things happen on the ground for women who would otherwise have no access. That is why I make a monthly gift to make sure they stay in business.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
communications and reports from them and other agencies about their work in foreign countries.

I wouldn't. They're doing just fine.
