In the past, women used coat hangers, and back alleys to stop pregnancies and many often died.
Planned Parenthood has been serving low income, underprivileged women and teens with breast exams, pap smears, infection and cancer screenings. Then, they make appropriate referrals when indicated. They help women with birth control, and counseling to prevent pregnancies. Women with unwanted pregnancies may have been raped, live in an abusive situation, or in severe poverty. There very life may depend on an abortion.
I have spoken with Planned Parenthood personnel, and I believe in their mission. And I know, “Fake News” when I see it. That is why we had a Women’s March on May 21.
