Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri is a joint project of Missouri's two Planned Parenthood 501(c)(4) advocacy organizations: 

Planned Parenthood has been a trusted health care provider for 100 years. We know firsthand that reproductive and sexual health is critical to the health and well-being of women, men, and young people. That’s why Planned Parenthood is at the forefront of the reproductive rights movement.

Planned Parenthood Advocates in Missouri works hard to protect reproductive health and rights in Jefferson City and in communities across the state. Reproductive freedom in Missouri is under relentless attack. With the help of supporters like you, we can fight forward. We need you to get involved and we help you stay informed. We are committed to providing you with the resources and tools you need to make a real difference.

Snapshot of Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri

Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri serve more than 50,000 women, men, and young people annually.

Each year, Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri* provide:

  • Over 4,600 Pap tests, detecting and preventing possible cancers
  • More than 6,100 breast exams
  • Education programs to 7,600 people

In Missouri, every $1 spent on family planning services saves $7.09 in taxpayer-funded health care. (Guttmacher Institute, 2014)

Over 55% of Planned Parenthood affiliate patients in Missouri are at or below 150% of the federal poverty level.

Of the 684,360 Missourians in need of contraceptive care, 393,170 need publicly funded family planning services. (Guttmacher Institute, 2015)

*Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri also have health centers in Kansas and Illinois. While some of those patients are included in these numbers, Missourians make up the majority of patients.
