Planned Parenthood does many, many things for Women’s health. Believe me, I know. In fact, defunding it would be a terrible decision. Why? For the simple reason that, 2.4 million women, men, and adolescents in the United States visit Planned Parenthood affiliate health centers for trusted health care services and information in a single year.

For example, I myself have visited the clinic various occasions in previous years. As a teenager being able to hold a birth control prescription wasn’t an easy task all the time. Being that, I didn’t have the money to afford it monthly due to not having a job like most teens. Fast forward, I was introduced to Planned Parenthood and their high quality healthcare by one of my classmates. In a like manner, I did research on the facility and made an appointment over the phone. As a final point, I’m glad to say I was a client of Planned Parenthood and their services in the past.

4 Groups That Would Be Disproportionately Hurt by “Defunding” Planned Parenthood

  • Families with low incomes.
  • People of color.
  • Those who reside in rural areas.

As you can see it’s not the old, rich, white men, trying to shut Planned Parenthood down.

Additionally, Planned Parenthood has had attacks from critics who are unable to understand the necessary of their services. As a result, the time has come for a show of solidarity, as it can help the facility keep running. That is to say, any bit of support sent is a way to help the center keep doing what it does best. Defend women’s rights!

    It saddens me that women’s rights like Planned Parenthood are trying to be disbanded by our government. I took so long to get this far and now they are eager to take everything away. PP is a very important place and has helped countless women of all ages and socio-economic groups.

      I agree, PP is a very important place for women. I can’t imagine what it would create if it didn’t exist.

    I remember years ago when I first moved out on my own and I started a new job, I needed to refill birth control and get my annual taken care of, Planned Parenthood was amazing and I got everything done there. I will always support them

    I think Planned Parenthood is absolutely necessary and I can’t imagine a healthy nation without it. Women of all backgrounds and incomes need access to affordable birth control plans and support groups.

      It is necessary to have Planner Parenthood around for endless reasons.

    I relied on planned parenthood when I was in college and had no insurance. If it weren’t for them I dont know where I wouldve gone. They do a lot of good and that outweighs any bad people may think they do.

      Honestly I was able to get birth control through them and many other people also do.
