Planned Parenthood Is More Than Just Abortions
By Stephanie Rodriguez
For thousands of women and countless others, Planned Parenthood is one of the biggest names that comes up when they think about women’s health. Planned Parenthood is an organization that contributes to health services in the following ways: providing reproductive and health services, advocating for public policies that support their mission, providing sex education materials and courses, and also promote sexual health issue research (HowStuffWorks). Since the founding of the organization in 1916, Planned Parenthood has been under political fire due to their “distributing of obscene materials at the clinic”. The clinic was providing birth control, birth control advice, and birth control information.
