In The Beginning
Margaret Sanger gained world-wide renown, respect, and admiration for founding the American birth control movement, and later, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA).
Planned Parenthood Association of Utah (PPAU) became an affiliate of PPFA in 1970 and has since shared Sanger's vision by establishing a reputation in the community as the premier provider of quality family planning, education and reproductive health care for all Utah residents. To this day, it is still PPAU's mission "to promote responsible sexual behavior and to reduce the physical, emotional and social costs of unplanned and unwanted pregnancy." PPAU now operates health care centers in Logan, Ogden, Heber, Salt Lake (3), Orem and St. George and has many contract rural providers throughout Utah.
