dobbaaa: Don’t walk around screaming about PP’s abortion mills and shit. You look like a blithering idiot. Did you know they provide breast exams, pap smears, STD testing, and multiple cancer screenings along with diabetes screenings? Not only that, but 35% of their services are contraception. Contraception! Oh no YOU’RE STILL KILLING ALL OF THE INNOCENT BABIES AND MAKING THEM FLY TO JESUS. ...

krystenallyson: This is a great organization that does a LOT for women’s (AND men’s, believe it or not) health, and they’re facing a lot of opposition as of late, especially in Texas. In case you don’t already know, abortion is only a very small percentage of the services they offer, and they’re absolutely vital for a lot of women’s basic health care (mammograms, pap smears, etc) services...

If it wasn't for Planned Parenthood..
I would probably been a 15 year old mother, and that’s a scary thought. I was never very educated about sex because I went to Catholic schools for the majority of my life and sex before marriage was “shunned” and “looked down upon.” I knew I had to use a condom, because that’s the only thing people would ever tell me.. Not why, not how, but straight up...

Planned Parenthood, You Were So Good To Me
I lived in Washington state during my high school years, and at that time Planned Parenthood had a program called “Take Charge” that enabled me and millions of other women to access free contraception and emergency contraception for a year at a time. When at the clinics, I was always treated with respect and as an adult who was empowered to make my own choices and ask for what I...
Omg! You're sacrificing skittles until abortion...
kaitlynthevegan: The thing that pisses me off the most about the anti-abortion movement is that people believe they know everything: What’s best for every single pregnant person, what situation people are in, the reasons that someone had an abortion and even things like who went with them to have an abortion (“Oh, strangely enough it was the boyfriend’s mother who went with her!” Oh really? And...
ramblingsofaslut asked: Hey, if any of your followers want to donate but do not want to use their own address, I'm totally fine with them using mine. If you could just direct them to me, I'll message them with the address. I already receive Planned Parenthood things, and I really love getting mail, so I might as well!

thewafflelife: Scott Walker hates Planned Parenthood so much, he’s getting rid of all of the services they provide - even the ones that have nothing to do with abortion - for example, free breast and cervical cancer screening services for women. What an asshole.
handsomephillip asked: Hey, hey! I was wondering if you or any of your lovely followers knew if PP sends people mail when they donate via the website. I was hoping to donate but I'm in a bit of a situation where I can't receive mail from them at my home address. Thanks for any help!
The Oppressed Little Fetus: What Planned... →
feministblackboard: Conservatives are fond of willfully ignorant statements like: Our tax dollars shouldn’t go to abortion, so Planned Parenthood should have its funding stripped. We all know this is a lie. The information to debunk this claim is widely and readily available. Aside from the three percent of PP’s budget that goes to abortion care (and that 3% is privately funded, duh),...

RUSTED EDGES: Choice On Earth →
rustededges: Correct me if I’m wrong, but last time I checked, Planned Parenthood does not promote abortions. Yes, they respect a woman’s right to choose whether or not to carry a fetus to term, and they will help her get an abortion if that is the path she chooses, but they do not promote abortions like some kind of new Christmas toy. Yet that is how countless news reporters for such online...

National Women's Law Center: A Teaching Moment →
We owe it to our young people to empower them to make safe and healthy decisions regarding sex. In order to this, they must know what their options are in case they have unprotected sex. They must know how their bodies work. They must know how to protect themselves against sexually transmitted infections. We hope they will know and understand the potential risks of engaging in sexual activity,...
Abortion doesn't increase mental health risk →
she-had-an-abortion: I don’t regret my abortion. I have not become depressed or suicidal and it has been nearly 9yrs since my abortion. I admit I had rough patches, but not because of the abortion. Rough patches happen in life. If I regret anything it was being in a situation where I felt like I had to choose. What lead to that decision was birth control failure. I was on the pill and using a...

Anonymous asked: This isn't healthcare related, but that Different is Normal vid is the first time I've seen a vulva like mine. I've been self conscious about this for years-ever since I've hit puberty; I feel like crying, I'm so relieved. So thanks PP, for giving a huge boost of self confidence!
Anonymous asked: I want to get into working at places like PP. What can/should I do to try and get a job there? Or any schooling, etc.
I go to a small University in Michigan, only about 24,000 students. What most of them don’t realize is that a majority of the free condoms they get from our Pro-Choice campus group come from Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood of Michigan provides our group with free training twice a year, as well as a couple thousand condoms, buttons, stickers, and information to hand out on our campus....
