Report: Missouri's safety net cannot serve patients without Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood is a crucial component of the health care safety net. 

Preventing Missourians from choosing Planned Parenthood leaves many without access to vital preventive care, including birth control, cancer screenings, and sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment.

Snapshot of Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri

At a time when regions of Missouri suffer from some of the highest rates of sexually transmitted infection (STI) and infant and maternal mortality, Planned Parenthood affiliates in Missouri and associated entities* provide critical health and education services to over 48,700 women, men, and young people every year, including:

  • 67,109 STI Testing and Treatment Services
  • 4,922 Breast Exams
  • 20,018 Pregnancy Tests
  • 11,748 Education Participants

Every $1.00 invested in publicly funded family planning services saves $4.83 in Medicaid expenditures that would otherwise be needed to pay the medical costs of pregnancy, delivery, and early childhood care.

Of the 731,710 Missouri women in need of contraceptive care, 55% need publicly funded family planning services.
