I stand with Planned Parenthood because
Planned Parenthood helped me as a young expectant mother over 20 years ago. I was without health insurance, but in need of education, healthcare, and reassurance that I could be a good mother to my child. They provided well baby check-ups and assisted me with WIC benefits, ensuring me and my child received proper nutrition. I had a low-income job and only a high school education, but Planned Parenthood helped me raise a healthy child and gave me access to birth control that I could not otherwise afford. Today, my daughter and I attend the same university. She is halfway through her bachelor’s degree program in business, and I am a graduate student with a full-time professional staff position with the same university. Planned Parenthood gave me a solid foundation to build a successful and healthy family.
