She then told a very personal story, relatable to as many as 2.5 million women and men around the country, of her first trip to Planned Parenthood.
“It was actually my clinician at Planned Parenthood who suggested I speak with my pediatrician if I was seeking a referral. She was compassionate and professional and told me she was happy to treat me for regular checkups, and when the time came, for STD and cancer screenings. No judgment. No questions asked. Planned Parenthood provided a safe place where I could be treated with gentle guidance,” she said, according to People.
