Mission Statement

The mission of Planned Parenthood Young Advocates is to raise awareness about Planned Parenthood by hosting non-partisan social events for our peers and providing up-to-date information regarding reproductive health issues. We believe everyone should have the freedom and opportunity to make responsible choices concerning their health and sexuality.

Description

Planned Parenthood Health Systems is an affiliate of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Inc., the world's largest and most trusted voluntary reproductive health care organization. Founded by Margaret Sanger in 1916 as America's first birth control clinic, Planned Parenthood believes in everyone's right to choose when or whether to have a child, that every child should be wanted and loved, and that women should be in charge of their own destinies.

Healthcare

Our health services include family planning and birth control, gyn care and cancer screenings, testing and treatment of sexually transmitted infections, medical and surgical abortion, mid-life services, and pregnancy testing and education. We strive to provide low-cost, confidential services in a comfortable, professional setting.

Education

Planned Parenthood Health Systems believes that informed choices begin with education. We sponsor programs and conduct presentations for schools, community groups, religious organizations, and corporations on topics related to birth control and pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, women's health, effective communication skills and decision-making, adolescent pregnancy prevention, and positive parenting skills.

Advocacy

Planned Parenthood Health Systems supports each citizen's right to make informed decisions regarding his or her health. To that end, we work diligently with national, state, and local policy makers to uphold access to all aspects of reproductive health care. We have developed a large network of grassroots supporters who are committed to defending and increasing access to family planning services, abortion services, and sexuality education.
