I got the Plan B pill the first time I had unprotected sex at 16 from Planned Parenthood. By receiving this pill I was able to prevent an unwanted pregnancy from an uneducated decision.
If it wasn’t for free birth control access through Planned Parenthood, I wouldn’t be able to enjoy a happy sex life. Access to birth control allows me to have full control of my body and to be able to make the decision about whether or not to have a baby.
Without Planned Parenthood, I wouldn’t have had access to Pap tests. Pap tests screen for abnormal cells in the cervix which have the potential to turn into cervical cancer.
By having access to free STD testing from Planned Parenthood, I am able to have a healthy, happy sex life.
Planned Parenthood was there for me when I faced an unwanted pregnancy. Without access to abortion, I would have faced a pregnancy I wasn’t financially or mentally prepared for.
I love Planned Parenthood because of their caring, non-judgmental staff. I love Planned Parenthood because they provide access to quality health care, regardless of income.
