Patient Voices in California

Millions of Californians lack access to quality, affordable routine health care, including sexual and reproductive health care.  On Thursday, January 10, 2019, Governor Newsom’s budget included a historic investment in sexual and reproductive health care. With this investment, Planned Parenthood health centers can deliver for patients to meet today’s urgent needs, expand access for underserved communities, and invest in capacity for the future. Check out stories directly from Planned Parenthood patients to learn how Planned Parenthood continues to serve their communities and patients.

"Waiting for my health insurance to activate, last February I found a lump in my right armpit. Planned Parenthood was the first call I made..."
