Q. Will there be protesters outside Planned Parenthood?
A. We often have protesters at a number of our health centers, but not always.
Q: Why are there protesters outside Planned Parenthood?
A: The protesters believe that Planned Parenthood’s mission to provide women with affordable health care and the full range of reproductive health care options is wrong.
Q: What can the protesters do?
A: They can carry signs, and approach you to offer you pamphlets or try to talk to you. They are not allowed to touch you or block your access to the the parking lot or health center entrance. You do not have to talk to them or take their literature. The safest strategy is to ignore them.
Q: Can you make the protesters leave?
A. As long as the protesters do not break the law, they have a right to protest. We monitor the protesters carefully and are in regular contact with law enforcement. If you feel a protester has acted inappropriately, please let us know immediately.
All patients and visitors will be asked to show a photo ID, and security staff may check your bags or purses. Please note that food and drinks are not allowed in waiting rooms.
