Here you go:
Pap Smears: Can't afford a cervical cancer screening? Planned Parenthood has your back.
Pregnancy Testing and Services: The organization helps women who are pregnant or are thinking about becoming pregnant get prenatal care.
Diabetes Screening: Depending on location, you can get general health care services like diabetes screening, flu vaccines, or anemia testing at Planned Parenthood.
Breast Cancer Screening: The organization provides valuable breast exams and helps women find services they might need.
STD Testing, Treatment, and Prevention: Planned Parenthood provides free condoms, HPV vaccines, and STD testing and treatment.
Male Infertility Screening and Referral: The organization offers a variety of male sexual health services, like infertility screening, testicular cancer screening, and erectile dysfunction services. Are the congressmen aware of this?
Menopause Help: It might not make headlines like abortion services, but Planned Parenthood's health centers offer midlife services to help women deal with menopause.
Well, then, I guess all those dead babies are well worth it.
@fdraiden. Be fair, you asked a question and Hammertoe answered it in a professional manner.
Hammertoe, considering where PP clinics are located, these services are provided far better by other clinics usually more accessible from a distance standpoint than PP. From what I have seen in my lifetime, women will travel as far as they must for an abortion, but will not do so not for these other services....so PP mostly is about abortions.
Tarayya- i think it depends on where you live.
In the NE states, PPs are all over the place- and so are many abortion competitors.
in those areas, the "other PP services" get significantly more traffic than PP locations that are 100s of miles apart do.
Liberalsheep…maybe so, but whatever services they provide doesn't negate the fact that they make millions of dollars off abortions, in order to fund these other services…is that a good tradeoff?
So let me get this straight. If someone murders their neighbor but then they give money to charity, then it's fine to like them because they also did something good?
Tell you what.
We'll quadrupedal the funding for all of those things and all PP has to do is stop providing abortions.
No, Hammertoe, PP does not do Mammograms or Breast Cancer Screening--they don't do most of the services that you listed. What you will see is that they provide a referral to those services--because they don't provide those services. I've got news for you, any doctor, community health center, or free clinic can provide a referral. We don't need a death factory / abortion mill to provide it.
