Whether it's affordable birth control or the right to safe and legal abortion, tell us why these services matter to you. Your story will help show everyone just what we're fighting for in the weeks and months to come.

Why do you stand with Planned Parenthood?

Your experience matters. Your perspective matters. Sharing your story is one of the most powerful ways to support Planned Parenthood.

There are two affiliates that cover Missouri: Planned Parenthood Great Plains and Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri. Choose your county from the list below to share your story.

How do you feel about politicians interfering with your health care?

Politicians recently passed a law adding new medically unnecessary restrictions on abortion in Missouri. Planned Parenthood is doing everything it can to make sure these restrictions do not get in the way of patient care. However, patients will have to take some additional unnecessary steps to access care.

If you have feelings about politics interfering with your access to care, we would like to help you share your story.
