The Importance of Planned Parenthood

Jess Downey has a wonderfully honest and personal post stressing the importance of Planned Parenthood:

When I arrived at Planned Parenthood I felt even worse. I felt so embarrassed, like now everyone would know that I was the bad girl who had unprotected sex. I felt dirty. Slutty. Ashamed. Sex itself wasn’t something that I talked about with just anyone with and now I had to tell some stranger at Planned Parenthood about how I was careless and irresponsible.

I explained the situation to the woman, she gave me some forms to fill out and then took me back into a little room. There we talked further and she explained how the morning after pill worked. She also talked to me about other forms of birth control.

I remember two things from our conversation in that room.

First – the way the woman talked to me and handled my situation. She was very personable and really put me at ease. She was actually very comforting. I didn’t feel like I had to tattoo “I am dirty and just had unprotected sex” on my forehead. Actually, I no longer felt ashamed of myself but I just felt like a human who had made a mistake.

Second – she educated me. She didn’t just give me the pills and say see you later. But she took the time to talk to me about safe sex practices and methods of birth control. She let me know about all the options I have so I wouldn’t end up in this situation again. And I never felt like she was lecturing me but that she genuinely wanted me to know all the facts.

I felt far better coming out of the room than I did going in. And I would like to thank Planned Parenthood for that.

I know she’s not alone in thinking that.

Abortions make up only 3% of the services provided by PP. But that’s what the critics go after all the time. It’s ridiculous when you consider all the other necessary, comprehensive services PP offers.

There’s certainly no reason the House of Representatives should stop funding it altogether. Sign this petition to support the cause. If enough people complain, maybe something can change. In the meantime, consider sharing your own personal stories about how important PP is to you (in the comments below or on your own sites). Encourage others to stand proudly in support of the organization.

    Jess’s post is a great story of experience and lays out the details of Planned Parenthood that the ultra religious and conservative don’t want people to know about.

    The congress vote will most likely be shut down by the Senate and even if the Senate pushes it through, Obama has promised to veto it.

    I stand in support. Even so much as to post my own thoughts on this whole issue:

    I don’t think the onslaught would stop, even if PP abandoned abortion services. Abortion is the big one, but to think that’s all of it is shortsighted, because we’re looking at a very different culture and assumptions of reality. The old testament style moralists don’t want any services of the kind that would help teens duck any of the consequences of what they view as immoral sex. They don’t want to fund services that provide condoms, treatment for sexually transmitted infections / diseases, contraception or abortion. We’ve already seen cases where they’re abandoning any pretense of accepting abortion even when the mother’s life is plainly endangered.

  • http://skepticalmom.com Lexi

    I think it’s also important to note that Planned Parenthood doesn’t use federal funds to provide abortion services anyway. They can only use private donations to fund abortions. Cutting federal funding is going to take away money from providing other health services, like STD testing, pregnancy testing, and contraceptives. So, JD is completely right. This isn’t even about abortion. It’s about taking away access to family planning and reproductive health services.

  • http://www.correntewire.com chicago dyke

    JD, you’re correct. the simple fact is that more than one PP-hater and elected official has proposed not only defunding abortion services, but also stuff like condoms and other forms of birth control.

    hating on PP is hating on women, period. for just being women. who don’t subscribe to the notion that they aren’t women, but in fact birthing sows who should be ashamed if they enjoy the act of being impregnated, which of course is the only time they should have sex, lest they be biblically defined “sluts.”

    if men carried the fetus, abortion would be a constitutionally enshrined right.

  • Goldarn

    The story you quoted is the reason why the Christian rightists want to defund Planned Parenthood. Imaging, treating the woman like she’s a human being and helping her non-judgementally, instead of making her feel like a dirty slut who needs to repent in sackcloth and ashes or risk going to Hell!
    The Christian rightists seem to have a deep-seated need to make other people feel bad about themselves, and this assault on Planned Parenthood is part of that.
    It’s hard to have anything but contempt for the Christian right, but I try to remember that they have to spend the rest of their lives living inside their own skulls, and I can’t imagine a worse fate.

  • http://www.alise-write.com Alise

    A long-time friend of mine is a nurse who works for PP. Despite the fact that the facility that she works at doesn’t offer abortion services, they are picketed all the time and she has had the “baby-killer” label screamed at her. She wrote an amazing piece about five years ago about one encounter she had with a patient who had nowhere else to turn. This work is incredibly important and that woman wouldn’t be here today if not for Planned Parenthood. But apparently “pro-life” doesn’t include poor women with cancer.

  • Hounddoggy

    I go to PP for my yearly exam. The place I go doesn’t offer abortions (although I’m sure that it could be arranged there). I don’t go for birth control…I go for general health. I am self-employed and have not had health insurance until recently. You pay on a sliding scale. Perhaps I wouldn’t go and have this exam if I had to pay full price…perhaps I would die of undiagnosed cancer.
    Perhaps it wouldn’t matter…..

  • http://3harpiesltd.org/jwp Judith Bandsma

    On my facebook status, when I stood for Planned Parenthood, one of my friends commented…”Planned Parenthood discovered my cervical cancer”. She can’t be the only one whose life has been saved by a PP discovery of breast or cervical cancer.

    But I guess actually saving a life isn’t important when compared to forcing the same women to carry a pregnancy and give birth to a child she likely won’t live to care for.

  • ButchKitties

    I went a few years where I worked full time, but for a company small enough that it wasn’t required to provide health insurance. With my pre-existing conditions, a personal policy was (and still is) completely beyond my budget. The county health department’s clinic only operated during my work hours (I didn’t get paid time off) and it does not offer cancer screenings, it only offers STI screenings. Planned Parenthood was the only place available to me that would A. let me in the door without insurance, B. had hours that didn’t require me to lose out on income, and C. would check me for cancer as well as communicable diseases. They kept me in birth control prescriptions and PAP smears until I finally found a job that offered insurance.

    I had an abnormal PAP in that time. My abnormal cells turned out to not be pre-cancerous, but if they had been, Planned Parenthood would have been the difference between needing a relatively inexpensive outpatient LEEP to remove the cells before they became a problem, and being bankrupt and/or dead from cervical cancer.

  • Joan

    I was 20 years old when I became sexually active, and I was very lucky that my boyfriend was knowledgeable and conscientious, because my parents (who were wonderful, caring parents) had taught me nothing in this regard except “don’t do it.”

    My boyfriend encouraged me to contact Planned Parenthood, which had an office near our university. So, I went. That’s where I had my first pap smear. (I didn’t know I needed one. I had never heard of one.) And they taught me how to give myself breast exams. (Who knew?) They educated me! They gave me a diaphragm (which I had also never heard of) and taught me how to use it — a method that worked well for me.

    It makes me so angry when people vilify PP and act as if they exist only to provide and encourage abortions. In fact, they do much to reduce the number of abortions by teaching women how to prevent unplanned pregnancy. And they provide other important health services and educate us about taking care of our bodies. I’m very grateful to them for educating me.

  • ACN

    Upfront:
    I am pro-choice, and I am unconvinced by any of the arguments from the anti-abortion side. I am 100% in support of PP.

    Can I be picky for a moment though?

    This:

    Abortions make up only 3% of the services provided by PP. But that’s what the critics go after all the time. It’s ridiculous when you consider all the other necessary, comprehensive services PP offers.

    is not a relevant point to someone who opposes abortion for fetus = full personhood moral reasons. If a person sincerely believe that an abortion is a murder, then arguing that they’re focusing their attention on such a little fraction of the money doesn’t change the fact that 3% of PP’s business is murder. They aren’t going to be convinced, and it opens you up to all sorts of ridiculous counter-attacks like “3% of any amount of money is too much to support murder” or “you can never justify any amount of money given to a murderer”.

    A better approach is to cut directly to the chase about what their specific opposition is. Are they “abortion is murder and should be outlawed” people, or are they “abortion should be legal but the gov’t has no business funding organizations who perform it” folks? You’ll never get the former to agree with you unless you engage them on their moral oppositions, and the latter you may be able to engage with rationally from the perspective of the government’s legitimate interests in promoting public health.

  • beckster

    If it hadn’t been for Planned Parenthood, I would have been a pregnant teenager. My older sister knew I was having unprotected sex, drove me to PP, dropped me off and told me to go inside for an appointment to talk to someone about birth control. I am still grateful for her for doing that. Unfortunately, she is now one of those that want to see PP completely defunded :-(

  • Cate

    For many of my friends growing up in Chicago, Planned Parenthood was the only source of birth control help that they had. Thanks to Planned, those young, healthy women are still healthy women–slightly older, slightly wiser, alive and well. I have no idea where they would have turned if there wasn’t Planned Parenthood to help them. Doubtless Cook County Hospital would have had even more patients in need to care for.

  • Andrew Morgan

    A better approach is to cut directly to the chase about what their specific opposition is. Are they “abortion is murder and should be outlawed” people, or are they “abortion should be legal but the gov’t has no business funding organizations who perform it” folks?

    This. It’s possible to have reasonable disagreements about whether or not the government should give assistance to an organization that provides abortion services, and not just in a reflexive “hurr durr government shouldn’t provide healthcare” way.

    I’m sensitive to the idea that it is unjust to compel a person to fund an activity that they believe is tantamount to murder. Regardless of whether or not someone is pro-choice, I think they should still be mindful of this.

    Does this open me up to the charge that the religious right can use that line of reasoning to then defund everything PP does, such as contraception? It does, perhaps, though anyone on the right who wishes to be taken seriously should draw a qualitative distinction between funding murder and funding contraception. I don’t have a problem disregarding those who don’t.

    So, to be clear, I do happen to think the government should help fund Planned Parenthood, while simultaneously I agree that those dollars shouldn’t fund abortions – which I acknowledge they don’t.

    But having unprotected sex is something one should feel ashamed about, this social shame providing motivation to avoid engaging in such a risky behavior.

    A civilized society shames certain behaviors because they are dangerous. And having unprotected sex is a risky practice.

    Sure she’s a human who made a mistake, but this acritical culture that refuses to forthrightly denounce others had a hand in her initial transgression.

    . It’s possible to have reasonable disagreements about whether or not the government should give assistance to an organization that provides abortion services

    no. it. is. not. “reasonable.”

    it’s theocratic, mythology based misogyny, plain and simple.

    here, let’s try this:

    it’s “reasonable” for people to disagree if men should be allowed to have cardiac care. after all, the heart is the center of love, and if a heart is dying, it’s the will of Venus. we mustn’t interfere.

    or

    it’s reasonable to deny men access to condoms and we should put men who masturbate in jail, because YHWH has decreed that spilling the seed of a man is a sin.

    or

    it’s reasonable we should deny men access to vasectomies, because Ganesh and Durga agree, men must always be virile or the foundations of this universe will fail from the horror of the abomination of unmanly men walking.

    etc.

    my body is my body. you can “reasonably” disagree about what i do with it, but legally, ethically, in any secular definition of those words, it’s still none of your business. unless you’d like to me to be able to legislate what you get to do with yours. if so, fine. i’ll start by outlawing fried chicken, whiskey, cigars, cane sugar and fast food. after all, people who eat and consume that shit are less healthy, and cost me taxdollars when they need medical care. does that work for you? didn’t think so.

    bottom line: abortion is a *medical* service. if the government pays for allergy medication, heart surgery, etc., it should pay for abortion. no matter who finds it “icky.”

    The problem with this is that opposing contraception is part and parcel of the pro-life movement. If you disregard those people, you have to disregard every single pro-life organization in America.

    From the latter article:

    It may come as a shock to most pro-life Americans, but there’s not one pro-life group in the United States that supports contraception. Rather, many lead campaigns against contraception.

  • koyote_ken

    Republicans don’t give a flying fuck about how “dirty” or “slutty” a pregnant girl “feels”…….all they care about is CONTROL over her bodily functions. PERIOD.
    It never ceases to amaze me how Republican pukes are all about “limited government” UNLESS…….it concerns abortion, gay marriage or immigration. THEN we need LOTS OF GOVERNMENT. Republicans are douchbags. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.

  • Andrew Morgan

    no. it. is. not. “reasonable.”

    it’s theocratic, mythology based misogyny, plain and simple.

    Thanks for helping to prove my point. Frankly, I’m rather disinterested in this topic, because I find it boring. I see two sides — one insists that it’s murder, and the other insists that if you don’t support public funding of abortion, you must be a woman hating misogynist who views women as birthing sows. Yawn.

    This is to say nothing of the hearty lulz I get every time I read someone say

    my body is my body. you can “reasonably” disagree about what i do with it, but legally, ethically, in any secular definition of those words, it’s still none of your business.

    and then say

    bottom line: abortion is a *medical* service. if the government pays for allergy medication, heart surgery, etc., it should pay for abortion. no matter who finds it “icky.”

    without them noticing the hypocrisy.

    I’m willing to take your contention that it’s a private matter very seriously (in fact, I agree) while not suggesting that it be paid for with public monies. If it seems like I’m directing this at one side, I’m not; I would love if the right didn’t exist in their own black and white world as well.

    But my sense is that in the real world of practical governance, in a country of 300 million people, we can either make compromises, or we can have the situation we do now: Planned Parenthood ends up getting no funding at all.

  • Andrew Morgan

    The problem with this is that opposing contraception is part and parcel of the pro-life movement. If you disregard those people, you have to disregard every single pro-life organization in America.

    I’m okay with doing that, because my argument applies to them as well.

    In the end, I see government as nothing but a good way of making sure that about half the people are unhappy most of the time (which is why, despite having a degree in Government, I don’t really care about it passionately). Issues related to abortion are a perfect example.

    It’s easy to say that the right is wrong on this (as it happens, I’ve never voted for a Democratic candidate) — I think they are. What we really have here is just a disagreement about what to do about it.

    But I have been given something to think about, and our minds are really the only things that we can change. :)

  • Ms. Crazy Pants

    In my 20′s, my only medical care was Planned Parenthood. I had no insurance and little income. I was diagnosed with cervical dysplasia. Without the care from Planned Parenthood, I probably would have ended up with cervical cancer. Since I couldn’t afford regular medical care, I doubt I would have caught the problem in time. I feel I owe my life to Planned Parenthood.

    I’ve also had many menstrual problems my entire life, and birth control pills helped with those issues.

  • BrettH

    Having grown up on one side of the debate (far-right pro life) and switched sides in college (pro-choice liberal atheist), I think the most frustrating thing about this whole debate as that both sides are missing a very important realization.

    Most pro-life people are good, caring people who care about women and babies.

    Most pro-choice people are good, caring people who care about women and babies.

    Education is the key here. Just saying “It’s my body” doesn’t help at all. If they though it was your body, they wouldn’t be pro life. Learning about how embryos developed was what changed my mind on abortion, nothing before that would budge me. When someone says “it’s no different than killing a baby that’s only a few days old” you can’t just say “it’s my body”, you have to tell them how it IS different. Learning that at the moment of conception all embryos are potential identical twins forced me to stop and actually think things through.

    (Just for the record, I think the people saying “it’s my body” are correct in any meaningful way. Something can be true without being helpful)

  • Kerrie

    I just went to PP today for my yearly exam. I’ve been uninsured for the last 2 years. The first year I went to the hospital to the doctor who had done my tubal ligation when I was insured (what a great decision that turned out to be, seriously!) and paid $250. Today, since PP takes my low income into consideration (unlike the hospital), I paid $100. I probably would have put off the pap for another year or two if the only option was a $250 hospital visit. The routine was all the same, but the people at PP were much friendlier!

    Before I left I noticed that in the office area there was a “bomb threat checklist” taped to the wall. How scary and sad that is.

    You’re missing part of the point, Andrew Morgan. There is no federal funding for abortion. There hasn’t been since the 1970′s. The attack on PP doesn’t, in reality, have anything to do with abortion since only private funds pay for them anyway. This is plain and simple an attack on women’s health.

  • http://hoverfrog.wordpress.com hoverFrog

    It is difficult for me to get my head around the idea that someone would deny women access to health care and education. In England your GP (actually more likely to be a practice nurse) advises and prescribes contraceptives and refers or performs medical checks for various cancers. We pay for this in our taxes and no additional fees are required although you can have private medical care if you want (I understand that the difference is that NHS doctors are not allowed to warm their hands before performing an exam).

    In addition there are specialist clinics for STIs, NHS funded courses for pregnancy care and new parents, social care from state funded health visitors to give advice to new parents and all kinds of horrible socialist stuff like that. You can go to a chemist (pharmacist) and buy the morning after pill over the counter. Supermarkets stock condoms and other pregnancy prevention devices. Some supermarkets even have pharmacists of their own and I hear that the larger ones are planning their own clinics.

    The idea of removing this and reverting to some kind of primitive, uncaring and closed society ruled by theocrats is just horrific. Still the USA isn’t my country. If your leaders want to turn it into a backward land where men are men and women are slaves then I suppose that is your business and not mine.

    OneSTDV:

    The entire purpose of Planned Parenthood’s services is to reduce the risk. So… what, if we have the opportunity to decrease the risk, we should be just as ashamed as ever to take part in the behavior? And are you really making a “risky = shameful = immoral” argument? Why doesn’t society shame skydivers or NASCAR drivers? That’s a remarkably disingenuous double standard.

    ludovico:

    This is a classic example of the genetic fallacy. It’s irrelevant what Sanger wanted to do – what’s relevant is the purpose of the organization now.

    Actually, I’d vote for no funding to go to paying politicians. When the country started, being a politician was a part-time job that you were not paid for (as far as I’ve been told).

    We could also save money by cutting the number of politicians in half and outsourcing their jobs to India.

    I also don’t recall the constitution saying anything about paying politicians, therefore it must be unconstitutional. ;-)

  • andyinsdca

    No.

    While I am a fan of PP, I am NOT a fan of government support of pretty much everything. If YOU support PP so much, you’re free to donate to them at your leisure. You are NOT allowed to take money from other people at the point of a gun (which is how taxes are collected) to support PP.

  • Ms. Crazy Pants

    There’s an actual good reason for the government to support PP though, and it’s beyond personal reasons. The cost of providing birth control to low income women is far less than the cost of providing support to low income children. Also the cost of providing exams to catch and treat breast cancer or STDs is far less than treating cancer or STDs that’s gone undetected. There are other clinics that aren’t Planned Parenthood that provide the same services and more, but none are as easily recognized and used as much as Planned Parenthood. In fact, some of this bad press actually helps make people more aware of PP’s existence, and that helps get the word out to people who need their help.

    Those same human services that government supports to help others also helps you if you become unable to work or take care of yourself.

  • Ms. Crazy Pants

    Those same human services that government supports to help others also helps you if you become unable to work or take care of yourself.

    I wanted to add to that to clarify.

    Targeting services for women and not targeting ALL medical services or help for everyone is just singling out women to receive less assistance. One can’t say that health services for women should go, but if someone uninsured has a heart attack without insurance still gets to go to the emergency room. Also, PP isn’t just for women, but most people only associate it with women.

    There is also a myth going around claiming that women use abortion as a convenience and that’s just not true. No one wants one, and I’d be willing to bet that no more than a handful in the entire US has ever had more than one. We can’t make laws based on what less than a dozen crazy people do. Most PP clinics don’t even offer that service. They would refer to the person to another PP clinic that does offer it.

    Again, if people think they can pick and choose what their taxes go for, then I should be able to choose that no politician ever gets paid from my funds. Or anyone who is anti-military could declare that their taxes shouldn’t go to any military activities or even veteran benefits.

  • Kristi

    I use PP for my birth control services since I had an abortion almost 6 years ago. They also found the potential cancer cells on my cervix and performed the LEEP procedure at their office to prevent me from getting cervical cancer (which is hereditary in my family). They do my yearly check-ups and have NEVER treated me bad, rude or anything else but friendly and with respect.

    The only bad experience I have with PP is the constant protesters outside who think it’s OK to toss abortion and birth control “sin” pamphlets into my car as I am leaving all the while hollering profanities at me about how I am a murderer and a sinner.

    PP is AWESOME! They should be funded forever as they provide so many more service than just abortions. About 90% of the girls I have talked to there were NOT there for abortions. Yes PP may perform them, but they send everyone home with everything they need to prevent it from happening a second time.

    Unfortunately I can’t seem to sign the petition because I’m outside of the US, but I’m very disappointed to hear about this sudden severing of support to services like Planned Parenthood – they are so invaluable. Not only that, but for such meagre reasons… it’s infuriating. Hopefully there will be enough outcry about it to pressure politicians to reconsider and reverse the decision.

    Andrew Morgan,

    This is to say nothing of the hearty lulz I get every time I read someone say

    “my body is my body. you can “reasonably” disagree about what i do with it, but legally, ethically, in any secular definition of those words, it’s still none of your business.”

    without them noticing the hypocrisy.

    The two quotes you selected are completely compatible with each other. Telling people that they shouldn’t have control of your medical choices then telling people that they should not discriminate in which medical choices are covered by any government funds is 100% consistent. Both are saying that the government should not get to make moral choices about our medical care. You sir need to buy a dictionary.

  • http://miketheinfidel.blogspot.com/ MikeTheInfidel

    SS: I think Andrew’s point was that if you want the government to pay for abortions, you’re making your decisions someone else’s business. Once the government gets involved, it’s the business of every taxpayer. He’s likely saying that it’s a bit of cognitive dissonance to tell people your medical decisions are none of their business, but then to insist that it must be their business and they should help pay for it.

    Government has a lot of business and you cannot reasonably determine what part of your money went to what cause and what part of someone elses money goes to what cause.
    In addition it is not reasonable to say Government must not spend taxpayer money on causes that I dont like. It’s reasonable to say I wont vote for an elected member who supports policies I dont like.
