Planned Parenthood Takes Care of the Community

RECEIVED Mon., Feb. 16, 2004

Dear Editor,
   I've been following the ranting over the pros and cons of Planned Parenthood. Particularly, I enjoyed the self-satisfying/tear-jerking editorial last week ["Postmarks," Feb. 6] of the woman who aborted and regretted it years later (now apparently wanting to stop others from doing what she had the right to do?). Well, the bottom line is, this is America, we have the education to prevent unwanted pregnancy. We are still a "First World" nation, right? Last year, I knew I didn't want a baby, I knew condoms don't always cut it, so I wanted to get on the pill, ASAP. My doctor had a one and one-half month wait list. Planned Parenthood took me in that same week, got me on the pill, and perhaps prevented an unwanted pregnancy predicament. Planned Parenthood also helps my low-income abuse survivor clients get STD tests at very low cost. Planned Parenthood takes care of this community. Pro-lifers, get your Dick and Bush out of my uterus! I don't want babies, I wouldn't raise them in this country anyway. Thank you Planned Parenthood!
