Jen C., Registered Nurse at Planned Parenthood in Minneapolis, recently told us:
Planned Parenthood is really well known for being a nonjudgmental, safe space. I’ve heard patients come in and say, ‘I talked to my primary care doctor, and there was so much judgment in what they were saying to me. I knew that if I came to Planned Parenthood I wouldn’t get that.'
We don’t ever turn anyone away, and that’s why we’re so busy. We don’t want to send anyone away, because for some patients it was really hard for them to get here. It could have been hard for them to leave the house, to find time, or to be safe from a dangerous partner. So once they’re here, we always serve them.
