Regardless of how you personally feel about Planned Parenthood it does provides more than funding for abortion services.

Unfortunately, a lot of people can’t see past that controversial issue.

Lot’s of women go there for low cost or free  services:  annual exams, contraception and to seek help after becoming a victim of  a sexual assault.
