Stand With Planned Parenthood
I gladly stand with Planned Parenthood! Planned Parenthood is very much needed in many communities because it is affordable, high quality health care for women, men and young people and the nation’s largest provider of sex education. Here are some reasons why this organization is so important to this country.
Ob-gyn providers, including Planned Parenthood health centers, play a critical role in providing primary and preventive care to women in the United States. Nearly 60 percent of women report seeing an ob-gyn on a regular basis and 35 percent view their ob-gyn as their main source of care — this is especially true for low-income women and women of color.
While I was studying to be a doctor I was blessed to remain on my parents insurance until I graduated. I had several classmates and friends who did not have the privilige of staying on their parents insurance thru college and graduate school. This clinic is a wonderful transition place for health care when students are in college or recent graduates. Planned Parenthood was often a great place to continue to receive their annual exams so they could make certain they remained healthy.
