My daughter has been using Planned Parenthood for her health service. She has not been able to get a job that is full time and provides health insurance. Affordable, professional and accessible Planned Parenthood has proved to be a valuable resource for her. They have a sliding scale and she can obtain birth control that allows her to choose when she will have a child and prevents a possible abortion. They are much much more than an abortion provider! They probably prevent many because of the affordability of all kinds of birth control
