I would dearly love for PP to go out of business, because all people had good, accessibly priced access to all of their services.  Seriously.  I strongly believe that the model of care in which a person can go to their PCP to get quality health education, education about the proper use of and failure rate of a wide variety of contraceptives, prescriptions at reasonable prices for those that want them, urogenital health screens including PAPs and dyspareunia, STI screening and treatment, and not feel stigmatized.

I have never been to PP as a patient.  I have seen many people go to PP to get pap smears or condoms or IUDs, or to find out what that rash really is - and feel totally stigmatized, because the protesters outside seem to think that each and every one is there to terminate a pregnancy.  Having the kinds of health care that PP provides marginalized to these standalone clinics not only makes for all kinds of silly problems with patient access, it allows these clinics to be targets of unnecessarily restrictive legislation, it can make staffing patchy, and forces the patient to duplicate their health history - when their PCP already has it in toto, and that might change treatment decisions.

I have rotated through primary care offices which offered abortion care (as a miniscule part of the total care they offered all their patients) and it was a thoroughly superior way to treat a woman, with great counseling and followup inherent, good pregnancy prevention.  PP sends all post-termination patients home with a solid future contraceptive plan physically in hand, but they are then often lost to followup. 

As long as these services are not generally available, or are priced out of range, we will need these standalone clinics.

You seem to have me confused with Divmer, who I believe is a bit nutty, but maybe a very nice person.

Yes.

(For the record, tomorrow I begin training as a PP volunteer.)

For my own choices I would choose to not have an abortion unless dire circumstances. I dont have any sources only what I have heard on certain religious stations. One thing I believe I have always stated iw that abortion needs to be kept legal and safe. I didnt know all of the facts and I dont participate politicaly I only have opinions. I read that she was racist on wikipedia several yrs ago. That doesnt mean I would vote to have pp closed its ony an opinion. If people want to show me that Ive heard wrong heck yeah I have a really open mind.

I'm confused now - you post so many articles from dubious sources that are clearly anti-choice.

I never would support this type of lunacy. Im nof affiliated with the pro life movement. I believe knowledge is the best thing and one can have personal views but I would never do anything that would interferd with a womans right to choose

Are you aware that racism and eugenics were state law when Margaret Sanger was working?

"The suffering of the poor is something very beautiful and the world is being very much helped by the nobility of this example of misery and suffering," said Mother Teresa

PP was the only doctor I could afford out of college. They discovered precancerous cells, did the procedure to remove them, and my follow up treatments.

I could not have afforded a private physician.

I have a beautiful 8 year old boy now. Because of Planned Parenthood, I am alive and my fertility intact.

Your post indicates that my life, and the life of my son, has as much value as a hole in the head.

Actually, Hitler criminalized abortions for Aryan women.

He also claimed to be a devout Catholic, and had "God is With Us" engraved on the SS belt buckles.

Sounds familiar, doesn't it?
