As a mom of a boy AND now a girl, Planned Parenthood’s mission statement is closer to my heart than ever before. It was important to me with just a son, but now with a daughter, working to keep the doors open for when she is a teenager is cause for me to stand even taller with the organization. Access to reproductive healthcare and the power of having a choice is the world that I want both of my children to live in. I want my daughter to be proud that she is a woman. I want my son to be respected and not seen as a threat to society. Motherhood is a gift. I am blessed to be a mother and proud to stand with Planned Parenthood and be an advocate for my children’s future.
