Do you have sex or plan to?

If so, then you might want to stand up for Planned Parenthood which is under siege and threat of cutbacks so severe that its very core is at risk. Watch this compelling video and pass it on. Made by students at Wesleyan University, it playfully reminds us that young Americans have sex and think about having sex and need Planned Parenthood:



What the video does not say explicitly is how Planned Parenthood can help everyone:
  • Women and men who rely on Planned Parenthood for contraception and family planning information -- PP helps avert about 612,000 unintended pregnancies every year.
  • Teens at risk of getting an STD-as many as 1 in 4 teenage girls already has one.
  • Teenage girls who are getting pregnant--724,000 do every year.
  • Women living in states that make it nearly impossible to get a safe and legal abortion.

Whenever I speak to groups of teens, I always take an informal poll to see how many of my young audience has been to Planned Parenthood. The response is always high whether they have accompanied a friend or visited themselves. Kids take it for granted that these competent, confidential and cost-effective services will exist. The way they take public education and garbage collection for granted as well. Let's try to keep it that way but let people know it all depends on our support.

  1. The youth are confused at this. Sex education does not even begin to educate the youth on the hazards of premarital sex.
