Planned Parenthood- What Every Parent, Teacher, Woman, Community Leader and Elected Official Needs to KnowBy Jeanne Monahan
This document was originally published in September, 2010. In the original version please note the following corrections: on page 1, 2nd paragraph, 12th line and page 9, 2nd full paragraph, lines 8-9 "a net income" should be replaced with "revenue." The current pdf reflects these changes.
To many Americans, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is a benign or even benevolent healthcare agency that is advocating for patient "reproductive rights." Others know that Planned Parenthood is connected with abortions, but do not know much beyond this information. Even those who are aware of the negative impact of PPFA on communities and individuals are often unsure of how to work proactively to defund the local chapters.
