Planned Parenthood health centers across California work tirelessly to provide quality health care and education. Those services must be protected and expanded through advocacy.
Planned Parenthood protects and defends women's access to a full range of reproductive health care, including abortion services. Decisions about childbearing should be made by women, their families, and their doctors — not by politicians. In order to make an informed decision, women need access to all reproductive health care options and should have the right to obtain safe, legal abortion services without interference from the government.
Planned Parenthood works to protect every woman’s right to make her own decisions about childbearing, and access to services plays a critical part.
Birth Control - Contraception
Access to contraception is critical to public health as part of basic health care. Providing birth control and emergency contraception is 40% of what Planned Parenthood health centers do in California. Contraception prevents unintended pregnancies and enables women to more effectively plan when and if they become pregnant.
Sex trafficking occurs when people are forced or coerced into the commercial sex trade against their will. Child sex trafficking includes any child involved in commercial sex. If you are a victim of human trafficking or you think you have come in contact with a victim of human trafficking, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1(888)373-7888.
Sexual Health Education
Planned Parenthood works with the federal and state governments to ensure access to real sex education programs. These programs give young people the comprehensive, medically-accurate, unbiased and culturally competent information they need to make responsible decisions and stay healthy.
