Planned Parenthood Saved Me

Posted on April 8, 2014 at 1:48 PM

An example of how supporters of Planned Parenthood are powerful when we band together.


Re-posted from the blog Planned Parenthood Saved Me:

"I have to have my second colpo in a year.  The first one I had student health insurance to cover.  But I’ve graduated and still have no job so Planned Parenthood is my only option.  A colpo can cost up to $800 without insurance but my PP only charges $300 and on top of that they have a loan program to cover half the charge.  Guess who provides the loan program?  Not the government, but a local woman’s roller derby team whose teammate died of stage 4 cervical cancer.  She had suffered sexual abuse and avoided getting annual exams.  The team raised money for her treatment but it was too late for her.  They donated the money to PP and have held fundraisers since.  When I found out I cried my eyes out.  Incredibly frustrated and sad that women aren’t getting the care they need but also thankful that these women who lost a teammate and friend are turning that grief into something positive that helps women like me."


With thanks for all you do,

-Rebecca
