I attended the Planned Parenthood of North Texas Dallas Awards Luncheon today. The speaker Cecile Richards was amazing. And it turned out to be a great lunch considering Komen reversed its controversial decision to cut funding to Planned Parenthood last week. I'm glad I got to be part of the lunch during such an important time. Plus, it was Planned Parenthood's biggest lunch in the country.
So many people are confused or misinformed about what PPNT does. It provides, breast cancer screenings, cervical screenings, adoption and prenatal care referrals, tests and treatment for sexually transmitted infections, birth control and education. I wish people would stop assuming and start listening and become more educated about what this organization does. Open your ears. Read a newspaper. Please.
