"I wanted to share "My Story" from 27 years ago. I was 17 then, 44 now. I had just become sexually active, and wanted to do the right thing to keep from getting pregnant - get birth control. So I went to Planned Parenthood and received the counseling and birth control I needed at a price that a kid with a part-time job could afford... Thanks so much for helping me back then, it's my pleasure to be able to support your organization now."

For example, your donation could help:

Every gift makes a difference.

Right now, your ability to make reproductive choices and get the full range of reproductive health care is not guaranteed and subject to political intervention. In fact, the current political climate puts reproductive health choices in jeopardy:

  There are proposed bills in the Legislature that could limit your ability to make reproductive health choices.
  There are laws that serve to limit the information you receive about those choices.
  Judicial appointments are being considered that could seriously impact reproductive choices for years to come.

The Planned Parenthood Action Network is an email network that will enable you to have your voice heard on these issues and other important policies.
