Planned Parenthood Offers Gift Certificates

Planned Parenthood reps say their gift certificates give loved ones the "gift of life."  Huh?

In response to difficult economic times, a few Planned Parenthood clinics around the country are selling gift certificates for their services. The gift certificates, ranging in values from $25 to $100, can be redeemed for all clinic services such as annual checkups, screenings, birth control -- and abortions. Yes, abortions! Quite a stocking stuffer.

"Because of the economy the way it is, so many are putting their own health care at the bottom of the list of priorities," said Kate Shepherd, a Planned Parenthood of Indiana spokeswoman. That's why the clinics are offering gift certificates for the first time.

Will you be adding these controversial gift certificates to your holiday shopping list?

I won’t be getting these for anyone, but honestly if you have a sister or another woman in your life that you really care about that can’t afford annual checkups and screenings this is a very meaningful gift and could save their lives.

I AGREE I WONT BE NEEDING THEM AND ITS REALLY SAD THEY ARE RESORTING TO THIS - HOWEVER I LIKE YOU THINK IF A LADY NEEDS TO BE SEEN THIS WOULD BE HELPFUL- ALTHOUGH I DONT HAVE INSURANCE RIGHT NOW AND IF I WAS GIVEN ONE I WOULD BE STEAMED…. JUST A THOUGHT

here is an idea be a PRO CHOICER… excercise your CHOICE to grow up and deal with the consiquences of your mistakes- if you dont want the risk- get your ovaries removed; its a lot cheaper and more ethical then to get a roughly $500 abortion nearly every two years. I dont care what the clinic says, there are other options.

For a lot of young women, this would be a great option. Planned Parenthood provides excellent services to assist people to have good reproductive health including pap smears, annual check ups and assistance in helping women to have a healthy pregnancy and child. Way too much emphasis is put on their abortion services and this isnt fair to an organization who are trying to help individuals receive appropriate care for thier reproductive systems. And dont forget they treat a LOT of STDs which can render males and females a lot of health troubles if left untreated.

Planned Parenthood provides information and service bot gynecological and psychological to women with no judgments. Planned Parenthood is in the business of creating planed families, and their first concern is planning.

When I was in college, I had to go to a public clinic for birth control (the pill) that wasn’t covered by my insurance. I would have appreciated such a planned parenthood gift certificate.
