I got the best healthcare and most honest advice about birth control from Planned Parenthood. I say this as an educated 50 year old adult who went on birth control to eliminate my period. I recently went off at age 50 and am in menopause now with ZERO side effects. Thank you Planned Parenthood. You are the best!
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
