If I hadn't gone to Planned Parenthood, I would not have gotten my diagnosis of stage two breast cancer. I might not even be here today.

Stephanie's Story

When I was 19, my boyfriend and I went to Colombia together. While we were there, I found out I was pregnant. Abortion is illegal in Colombia. I felt isolated, afraid, and alone. I didn’t know who to turn to or where to go. The only thing I knew is that I was not ready to bring a child into this world.

Because I was able to get preventive care, including birth control, I was able to fulfill my life goals: to graduate college and become a mother.
