An Open Letter to Planned Parenthood
There’s been a lot of talk about Planned Parenthood, particularly as the Republican presidential candidates try to outdo one another in the race to see who can be worst for women.
But an interesting thing is happening: women are standing up and sharing what Planned Parenthood means to them and exactly what’s at stake.
In Austin, TX, Christina shared how the reliable and non-judgmental care she received from a Planned Parenthood health center helped shape her future.
“The thing I remember most about you back then is how you always treated me with respect and dignity. As a 19-year-old high school drop-out, getting treated with respect and dignity wasn’t something that happened every day. And it definitely made an impression on me when it did.
You didn’t try to steer me to any decision. You didn’t have any sort of agenda or bias. You gave me solid information and you let me know that you totally understood the decision was mine. And when I told you what I had decided, you walked your talk about being there for me by connecting me with a clinic that could help me from that point forward.”
We love it and hope you’ll click through to read the entire piece.
With one in five women turning to Planned Parenthood health centers at some time in her life, this compassionate and reliable care is not something women and families can afford to lose. It’s time to join Christina and the thousands of others across the country and let our politicians know that women are watching. Sign the pledge today!
