Real Stories
 

"Planned Parenthood is a REMARKABLE, WONDERFUL place for individuals to receive health care. I have had many issues and problems, and I have been treated so incredibly kindly by this staff from checking in to seeing the nurse, doctor and all included. I am PROUD to be here. Thank you all, you are wonderful."

"I've been able to grow up surrounded by so many incredible women who taught me about myself, about life, friendship, and love. To think that those women may not have a right to learn about their own bodies, or don't have the ability to make their own medical decisions is so sad and so painful. Everybody deserves autonomy, care, and empathy, no matter the circumstances. We need Planned Parenthood."

"I believe that every human should have a choice. This place is here to help people not hurt them. I thank God for a place to educate and help people with things that are no longer taught in public schools. It is a place for young people to come and get tested and learn the dangers of unprotected sex. Thank you for all you do."

"When I was 26, I found out I was pregnant. At the time, I was dating someone who was emotionally abusive and unstable. I was not prepared psychologically or financially to become a parent - and my partner was certainly not "father material." Knowing I would want any child of mine to grow up in a loving, stable, and safe environment like I experienced as a child, made the decision to have an abortion easy. If I were to have had a baby then, that baby would not have been given a good life. Having an abortion was the most loving and responsible decision I could make. Planned Parenthood allowed me to choose what was best for myself and I am forever grateful to them for providing abortion services and supporting a woman's right to choose."

"I visited Planned Parenthood last year for a question I had about an abnormality. This was something I had been putting off for a year leading up to my visit out of fear for what my diagnosis would be. When I got to the office, I was visibly nervous; I was crying, shaking, and filled with anxiety. After seeing a doctor, I was still nervous and even more upset. The manager of this particular Planned Parenthood, took me into her private office, gave me tissues, and just sat with me while I unloaded my story on her. She went out of her way to calm my anxiety and even gave me her personal number to call if my anxiety still persisted. I have since learned that my diagnosis was perfectly normal. Planned Parenthood not only provided me with professional medical care, but they treated me with humanity and dignity. Their doors must stay open. "
