We are so grateful for the community support!
For 100 years, Planned Parenthood has faced challenges and attacks from people opposed to our mission to provide sexual and reproductive health care. We are strong. We are powerful. And we won’t back down.
Our medical centers do encounter protesting. On occasion, when anti-abortion activists are planning a large-scale demonstration, Planned Parenthood supporters may wish to hold a counter-protest.
Since we are a provider of medical care, we do discourage large groups of people at the health centers who could intimidate patients from accessing their care. In a protest/counter-protest situation, patients typically cannot tell who is with them and who is against them; they just see a big, scary mob. Counter-protests may increase the risk of loud, angry, and dangerous confrontations between opposing parties. They may also encourage media attention, which is exactly what anti-abortion activists are hoping for.
For all of these reasons, we encourage you to consider another way to take action because we NEED YOU!
