  • Planned Parenthood does a lot more than just "abort babies" Jesus Anon, play nice!

    Planned Parenthood offers many different methods of Birth Control, they offer your yearly pap smear, STD testing, pregnancy testing, help planning for parenthood, help in alternates to being a parent (pointing you in the right direction for adoption) as well as providing Abortion services, Vasectomy services, and much more.

    Go to their website: http://www.plannedparenthood.org for more information.

  • my understanding is that they do perform abortions however they also offer referrals to adoption agencies etc. Birth control and womens health exams (pelvic etc)pregnancy tests but they do NOT provide prenatal care so if you are preggo you need to see a doc in a clinic. And as much as I myself am against aborting babies Planned parenthood is not the only place that does it so lets not demonize planned parenthood. It offers some great services to women who otherwise would not be able to afford them. I have a girlfriend who cant get health insurance and she gets her bc and womens health exams done at planned parenthood otherwise she couldnt get them. they discovered she had a thyroid condition and referred her to a low cost clinic. They are not all bad. Play nice ladies ;)

  • Actually yes some Planned Parenthood clincs do abortions. not all of them. the website tells you that.
    In-Clinic Abortion at a Glance
    Medical procedures that end pregnancy
    Safe and effective
    Available from many Planned Parenthood health centers
    Costs about $350–$900 in the first trimester

    But anyway, I used to get my annual exams there & birth control pills. they do preg. testing too.
