Get to know Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood makes a difference for thousands of Iowans. We provide expert sexual and reproductive health care to Iowans every year. We provide birth control, STI testing, telehealth visits and more. Planned Parenthood believes everyone deserves access to medically accurate sex education. And we advocate for our reproductive rights, so our laws reflect our needs. All together, that’s Planned Parenthood.

"I had an abortion. Abortion is truly a health care service. And that’s why it’s so important to talk about it, to destigmatize it."

"I grew up in a small town where it’s common for girls to become pregnant in high school. It’s not something that I wanted for myself. Before I found Planned Parenthood, I felt a little hopeless, worried that I would get pregnant and stay in a cycle of poverty."

"Health care settings require vulnerability from patients, but Planned Parenthood makes me feel safe in that vulnerability because they recognize the importance of my non-binary identity and how closely it ties into how I feel about my body — including the decisions I make for it."

"I told a friend of my grandparents that I worked at Planned Parenthood. She got this look on her face and she started to cry, saying, 'Thank God for Planned Parenthood and thank God for you.'"

Some people don’t understand everything that Planned Parenthood does—from providing health care and education to advocating for reproductive rights. But you aren’t some people. You know how important Planned Parenthood is and you have a story to tell.
