I feel very strongly about every child being a wanted child, strongly about women’s access to reproductive health care. I’m a feminist and I believe that women need control of their fertility to fully participate in society.
I work at Planned Parenthood because I believe so strongly in educating and supporting women and men in their choices regarding reproductive health.
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.
If you have a question or if you’re worried about something, just call. It takes five minutes for me to go over something or answer a simple question, and then you don’t have to worry anymore.

Planned Parenthood Slams U.S. House for “Defunding” in the Worst Bill for Women’s Health in a Generation
“Defunding” Planned Parenthood would deny millions access to cancer screenings, birth control, and STD testing and treatment
Sarah Stoesz: “This is the worst bill for women’s health in a generation. It makes it harder to prevent unintended pregnancy, harder to have a healthy pregnancy, and harder to raise a family.”
“I kind of liked the idea of being a bit of a visible counter-force to the protestors, really being able to greet people who might be nervous and scared no matter what they’re coming in to do—whatever sort of appointment they have—just because they have to go through the protestors.”
“They were open armed, they were very welcoming…they can kind of see that the people who go to Planned Parenthood are probably in greater need so that kind of caring feeling was definitely noticed.”
