Planned parenthood is a huge deal in today’s world.
Planned parenthood has barely been given any attention and has come a long way ever since 2014 when finally the government gave 40% of its funding to planned parenthood. One of the major issues tackled in healthcare is abortions, which women, and people in general, have been fighting hard to improve.
Other services provided by Planned Parenthood include cervical cancer screening, emergency contraception, birth control, sexually transmitted infections, and several other serious issues.
But the government hasn’t been too kind to households and neighborhoods with low-income wages and to a serious extent, they’ve kind of cut-off providing these services in such areas. This includes 650,000 women who had these health services taken away from them. These services are very important as several sexually transmitted diseases and abortions could be dealt with safely.

She went to planned parenthood at the age of 17 while she was broke and couldn’t even afford tampons.
There was a high chance of late-term cervical cancer when she was finally diagnosed, it caused her a lot of money.
The healthcare center had its security measures tightened because of all the threats it received.
She was diagnosed with an internal infection and the health center took care of her expenses.
So she explained her opinion on planned parenthood.
Planned parenthood helps to make a more sustainable life. Medically, it can help you understand diseases that can cause issues later in life, such as sexually transmitted diseases or internal infections. Other than that, medical exams can help women to understand the importance of abortion and can decrease the number of unsafe abortions. I also think that healthcare services should be available for everyone regardless of their income or lifestyle, and most of the cases surrounding women’s health issues are usually because of the neglect of the government not targeting communities with poor living conditions.
