Support Planned Parenthood

I was in my mid-twenties, fresh out of grad school, looking for my first job, when I suddenly discovered a lump in my breast. I had no insurance, no income, and I was terrified. I knew of Planned Parenthood from Take Back the Night, so I went there. I was treated with the utmost dignity by every staff person, examined by master of kindness Dr. Charles Bradley, and ultimately referred to a specialist. I was fortunate; it turned out to be just a cyst.

But the biggest part of my good fortune was being able to go to Planned Parenthood. Ninety-seven percent of their services detect breast and cervical cancer; prevent unintended pregnancy; test for and treat STDs, including HIV; and educate youth and adults.

Make sure the next young woman who finds a lump in her breast has somewhere to go. Please support Planned Parenthood.
