The organization known today as Planned Parenthood Los Angeles was founded in April of 1965 to meet the growing need for reproductive health care in Los Angeles County. At the time, oral contraceptives were new and the first IUD was just released for general use. Abortion was illegal in California, as in the majority of states, and a minor could not receive contraceptive services without parental consent. The tools and resources needed to provide family planning services were limited and the need for them in Los Angeles continued to grow.

Today, Planned Parenthood Los Angeles offers a full range of reproductive health care services to women, men and teens throughout Los Angeles. One of the largest providers of reproductive health care in LA County, PPLA operates 23 health centers. Read more about our services and accomplishments in our Annual Report.
