Every day, Planned Parenthood works to make sure patients receive the high-quality health care they need in a supportive environment. That includes ensuring patients can get in and out of Planned Parenthood health centers safely.

Here are a few other things you'll need to know when arriving for your appointment:

Will there be protesters outside Planned Parenthood? 

Protesters do demonstrate outside some of our health centers on a regular basis.

What can the protesters do? 

They may carry signs, 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 parking lot or health center entrance. You do not have to speak with them, take their literature, or interact with them in any way.

Can you make the protesters leave? 

As long as the protesters do not break the law, they have a right to protest. The health and safety of patients and staff are Planned Parenthood’s top priority and are central to its mission. 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.

What else do I need to know when arriving for my appointment?

When arriving for your appointment, all patients and visitors will be asked to show a photo ID. Security staff may check your bags or purses. If you have an insurance card and/or a card for your pharmacy benefits, bring those as well.
