A group dedicated to the health of women and responsible parenting. I have been there many times over for routine screenings, free contraceptives, and the informative and caring staff on site. I started using planned parenthood for these services in my youth and have always felt it was a gift to the community.

I'm more than a little disturbed that this racist organization is considered a charity. Their humble beginnings start with a lady (term used loosely), by the name of Margaret Sanger, a popular proponent of eugenics of the early 20th century whose fan base included Adolph Hitler. Their antics have not changed over time, just their marketing. Have you ever noticed that the abortion mills of planned parenthood are usually in the middle of ethnic parts of town? Shameful.
