truth-has-a-liberal-bias: AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - A federal judge on Monday temporarily blocked a new Texas rule that would have excluded Planned Parenthood clinics from offering women’s health services for the poor in the state because the organization provides abortions. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Lee Yeakel in favor of Planned Parenthood means thousands of women enrolled in the Texas...

taeenalee asked: I'm not sure where to put this or whether it's already been shared, but in the U.K you can get whats known as a C-Card from many places including your school nurse, sexual health clinics, your doctors and walk in clinics if you are between the ages of 11 (I think) to 19/20 (some places 25) and this allows you to get free condoms from many places such as the above where you can get it and...
Anonymous asked: Can we just walk into a PP center for their free condoms? Do they limit you on how many you can take? My boyfriend and I do not work right now and saving any kind of money would help.
Planned Parenthood is on Tumblr!
plannedparenthood: Planned Parenthood is excited to be launching our new Tumblr that’s all about sexual and reproductive health – bodies, birth control, relationship issues, “is it normal for this to do this?” type things. In the coming weeks and months we’ll be sharing what we know, answering questions, and just… tumblring. We hope you like it! And we hope it helps. FUCK YEAH.
Salt Lake City teens!
First of all, I wanted to say what a great thing you have going here. I wish there was a site like this to help me when I was searching through a sea of Google results looking for help. I wish I knew more peoples stories back then, so I thought I’d share my own. Needless to say, I was filled with terror and anxiety surrounding my first visit. I walked into the metro location, and was...

Both I and my younger (sixteen year-old) sister live at home. Yesterday, I tugged her into my room, shut the door and dialled Planned Parenthood. Within five minutes, I had booked us both back-to-back appointments with one of the local doctors who works with PP to provide low-cost health care. Why? I’m looking to get an IUD. I did my research, and then last month I went in to see a GP at...

thelovelyphones asked: I'm sure you guys get a lot of hate for running a blog like this but kudos to you guys for trying to get the honest truth about planned parenthood out there. So many people are against the organization because they perform abortions, but really it is so much more than that. I hope this blog is able to educate some of those anti-PP people.

dxglitter: I haven’t even finished reading it. My chest is all tight. The Hairpin posted a piece by someone who has HSV1 genitally. The first part is about Having The Talk. Edit: Finished reading. Take away quote? Telling people about it still isn’t easy or fun, but it’s my own magic Hogwarts-esque sorting hat. If a guy freaks out, he’s not meant to be in my house. Or I in his.
fathairylesbian asked: Thank you for the help, Rachel. I don't have insurance. I haven't since I was a kid and they had to give it to me. So I've not once gone to a gynecologist in my life despite my being 22 and sexually-active. I'm at the end of my rope, looking for options anywhere I can find them. That's why I was hoping PP could help me. I'm still afraid of the costs but I guess it...

I’ve never gone to Planned Parenthood but, as a young woman, just knowing they are there brings me so much comfort. If I need help I just have to ask. I love what PP does so much and I’m planning on volunteering there as soon as I’m old enough.

PP was there, when nobody else was.
I feel safe at PP because people they are sweet, and never pass judgement. I’ve been unemployed for months, and was about to run out of my birth control from when I had insurance, and a job. The women working there were the nicest people I’ve met in any medical setting, my former doctor included. I was given one year worth of the exact birth control I was already on, condoms, and my...
