  • I have only went there to make sure I was pregnant. I would let them know right away I was planning to keep my children. So they only gave me info for OB/GYN clinics.

  • I went there when I was younger to get birth control pills, I used to think they ONLY did abortions.

  • AF4life..they encourage nothing, they give you information you ask for. Actually they are quite rude about it and hardly speak to you. Very cold place, in my expirience. I only have catholic hospitals in my area so i went there to get my tubes tied. I was all very sterile, cold and formal. If that wasn't enough I got blasted by the anit-abortion wackos on the way in and out.

    It was a lovely expirience.

  • I was just saying what I have heard from people that have gone there, again these were young teens that were pregnant, but that is what they told me. I am sorry if I was wrong, but like I put down I was just saying what I have heard from people I know that have gone there.

  • i go to planned parenthood for my yearly and i LOVE the doctors there. they are regular doctors (and very good i might add), and very professional. no one has ever pushed abortion at me. i have been going there for 15 years, and they go by your income. at least they do here where i live.

  • I've gone there. They are for people that want to terminate the pregnancy, birth control, and pap smears. They don't do anything with pregnancy really.
