Planned Parenthood Legacy Video: #100YearsStrong

Planned Parenthood’s story began 100 years ago with a radical idea. That access to sexual and reproductive health care had the power to change lives and the world. This idea sparked a reproductive revolution by a brave and defiant few. It was not easy. And it was not without opposition. But these few were joined by millions more, over many years, and across many generations. Planned Parenthood - once a single health center, is now known and trusted for it’s sexual and reproductive health care. We’re the largest source of sexual education in the country and an essential provider of cancer screenings, diagnosis and treatment of STIs, and other preventive care - as well as a catalyst for laws and policies that ensure equal access to health care and reproductive freedom. And that’s just our first 100 years. Moving towards our second century… we still face opposition. It’s still not easy. Yet we are determined. Determined to build a world free of stigma and judgement. A world where neither income or zip code determines access to birth control or abortion. A world where the rising generation will know, embrace, and continue to build on Planned Parenthood’s proud legacy. And a second century defined by as much compassion, conviction and courage as our first. Because we care. We always will. No matter who. No matter where. No matter what.more
