Review for International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Review for Pathfinder International, Watertown, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & Deliver babies, provide birth control, treat STDs, gyn surgery.
