Share Your Story

Politicians in Louisiana have made their priorities clear: attacking reproductive health and rights, and blocking thousands of patients from accessing care at Planned Parenthood health centers.

But your voice can make a difference. Whether it's affordable birth control or the right to safe and legal abortion, tell us why these services matter to you. Sharing your story will help ensure that Planned Parenthood will continue to be there for the individuals who depend on us for essential services like birth control, STI testing and treatment, HIV prevention, lifesaving cancer screenings, miscarriage care, gender-affirming hormone therapy, comprehensive sexuality education, legislative advocacy, and more.

Storytelling is a powerful way to destigmatize sexual and reproductive health care and demonstrate the critical importance of access for all.

We want to hear from you.

Stories may be posted on our website, social media, or other public place (you can choose to be identified or not) for others to read. After submitting your story, we may contact you to ask about further sharing your experience. Your contact information will not be released without your permission, and you're under no obligation to share more than you are comfortable with.
