Hear From Our Patients

Dakota's Story

I turned to Planned Parenthood when I was in high school for birth control. If Planned Parenthood hadn't helped me, I would not be who I am today.

Chenoa's Story

I found out about the Affordable Care Act while volunteering at Planned Parenthood. I was so excited because it meant I could have health insurance again.

Shawanna's Story

At 17, I became pregnant. I decided to terminate the pregnancy because it was the best option for me at the time. It's important that abortion remain safe and legal for women.
