Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Family Planning, Health, Reproductive Health Care, Reproductive Rights

Mission: Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual''s income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual''s right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life, strong family relationships, and population stability.

Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual; to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services; to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality; to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bioethical, behavioral, and social implications.

Planned Parenthood should not be considered a non-profit. They're making millions killing baby's and selling there organs. They're by far the most callous and corrupt asociaciĆ³n of people I have ever known. They donate billions to political campaigns and spend another such in lobbying. If they're a non profit as they say where the hell does all the money they donate to political campaigns come from? They buy off corrupt politicians and media with their blood money.
