What I would really like to find out though, is some statistics from an unbiased source about the number of adoption referrals they have, and if someone can let me know if they do pre-natal care or referrals in any part of the USA.
I will never give Planned Parenthood a penny ever since they suggested I have an abortion when I called in Brooklyn asking for referrals to sliding scale/affordable pre-natal care. I was unsure if my pregnancy was covered or not, so was looking for what my options were. They said they could only refer me to an abortion provider. They did not have a single person to refer me for pre-natal care, no information on any programs (and PCAP was in place back then), nor did they even mention adoption. It was abortion or fend for myself.
Why do they have the word PARENTHOOD in their name, at all, if they have absolutely nothing to do with it?
I supported them yearly before then, and maybe it seems like a long time to hold a grudge, but how many women felt pressured to abort because they wouldn’t give the women all the options out there, or would help them find affordable prenatal care and post natal support?
They’re not pro-choice, if this is the case. Choice is about having one. Delivery and keeping the child. Adoption. Abortion. To offer women just one choice is no choice at all.
