"Planned Parenthood South Atlantic proudly provides a safe, welcoming and loving place for all of our LGBTQ+ staff and patients. No one should be subjected to hateful rhetoric that harasses and shames them simply for existing. We know nearly half of LGBTQ+ youth report engaging in self-harm; this is a public health crisis that is as alarming as it is unacceptable. North Carolinians need and deserve elected officials who serve us all."
