2020 has brought many changes to our lives, but one thing has stayed the same: Planned Parenthood's commitment to providing real care for people across Pennsylvania. No matter what.

Real Care means:

  • Providing patients with the full range of sexual and reproductive health options including abortion services.
  • Access to safe and affirming care, in-person or via telehealth, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Ensuring every person — regardless of where they live, how much money they make, or whether or not they have health insurance — has access to basic, preventive reproductive care.

Real Care in Action

Hear from Melissa Reed, CEO of Planned Parenthood Keystone, and other Planned Parenthood providers about accessing health care during the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing barriers to accessing real care.

Share Your Real Care Story

Safe. Compassionate. Accessible. Every day, Planned Parenthood health centers across Pennsylvania provide patients with real care like birth control consultations, cancer screenings, STI testing, abortion services, and more.

Pennsylvanians Deserve Real Care

Everyone deserves access to evidence-based, non-judgmental health care. But all across Pennsylvania, anti-abortion centers (sometimes called “crisis pregnancy centers”) seek to prevent people from accessing the full range of sexual and reproductive health care options, including abortion. These centers often mislead and coerce people who have an unintended pregnancy — and they do it using taxpayer money. 

Learn more about the organization behind many of these centers, Real Alternatives, and their unaccountable use of Pennylvanians’ tax dollars.
