“there would be more abortions if Planned Parenthood DIDN’T exist”

Canada’s Planned Parenthood

Graham, a 5th-year medical student has an interesting blog about his experiences in the world of doctors. He’s currently doing a rotation at Planned Parenthood and has written a simple but sensational piece about what he’s seeing and learning.

Firstly, its really great to see a medical professional be so humble and honest about what they don’t know. He seems really open to learning from his patients and that’s something you don’t hear every day.

Secondly, and most profoundly, he clarifies in a way that I haven’t really seen elsewhere what it is that Planned Parenthood is all about. In Canada, Planned Parenthood is relatively safe (lets not be complacent about that!) but in the United States of America, where this blog is written, PP is losing funding and its ability to thrive in a significant way. The main reason for this is that PP is demonized as an organization that promotes and performs abortions as its only function.

Graham clearly and simply clarifies this myth and explains what Planned Parenthood actually does and how vital they are to our communities. Read Graham’s blog and let us know what you think…
