What Do You Replace Planned Parenthood With?

The wingnuts want to defund Planned Parenthood. For many years, I volunteered at a local free Clinic that was partnered with Planned Parenthood. 99% of what they did was screenings and treatment for cervical cancer and STDs, contraception and prenatal care and nutrition. It was also set up to provide indigent medical care to those that fell through the cracks and had no other general health care options.

Yeah, they provided abortion referrals. The abortions were through an outpatient clinic, not free but very affordably priced. So what?

I like Planned Parenthood.
