Our website, plannedparenthood.org®, is the official gateway to the online Planned Parenthood community and to a wealth of reproductive health and rights information, services, and resources.
Who makes up the Planned Parenthood community?
The Planned Parenthood community is made up of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., (PPFA), which is the nation's leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate and provider, and 85 independent, affiliated local organizations — all operating under the Planned Parenthood name.
PPFA and 73 Planned Parenthood affiliates have joined together to create plannedparenthood.org to provide streamlined access to the complete array of sexual and reproductive health information, services, and advocacy and volunteer opportunities available from Planned Parenthood entities nationwide.
Who "owns" www.plannedparenthood.org?
While PPFA owns the URL www.plannedparenthood.org, the content is a federation-wide Web initiative. Each participating Planned Parenthood entity is responsible for the content on its pages. Since all participating Planned Parenthood organizations share much of the information on plannedparenthood.org, check the copyright statement on the material you are viewing if you want to be sure of the source.
I noticed that some local Planned Parenthood affiliates have their own sections on this website, but mine does not. Why?
While some local Planned Parenthood affiliates have their own sections on plannedparenthood.org, others have independent websites. This variation is a matter of affiliate choice and has nothing to do with the types of services available, or with how affiliates are associated with Planned Parenthood. Contact information for every Planned Parenthood affiliate can be found on this website.
