Gift Certificates from Planned Parenthood!

http://www.wishtv.com/dpp/news/local/region_1/Gift_certificates_for_Planned_Parenthood

I'll say the same thing I did on my PG, where this was posted to catch my attention.

Seems an odd marketing tactic, but I can certainly see the intent. There are many times when I wish I could have handed a $25 gift certificate to PP to certain friends or family members so they could go buy contraception instead of popping out one kid after another that they can't afford.

I got my contraception at PP for years while I had no insurance or bad insurance, and it was a very good deal for me economically. They were extremely helpful with regards to figuring out how to prevent my recurrent UTI's, when it was costing me $75 for the urgent care visit and $70 for the prescription every couple of months for the treatment of them.

It does seem odd when you first think about it, but it's very practical. My family always bought groceries, clothes, underwear, gas, and gave bill money to a family in need. Why not include in that gift certificates for health care? I think it makes a lot of sense.

That would be funny, if it weren't so true...

I see nothing weird about it. I have bough drug store gift cards to help people afford their prescriptions.

I think it sounds like a good idea because it's giving something to someone that they really need. What better gift is there than to help out someone with their needs when they can't even afford to have their own needs met?
