Planned Parenthood Patient for 27 Years - Lorene’s Story (:30)

Lorene is a soil scientist and a proud Planned Parenthood patient and supporter in Alaska. “For 27 years I have relied on Planned Parenthood. As a young woman, I went to Planned Parenthood to prevent pregnancy out of wedlock. As a young married woman living on very little income, I went to Planned Parenthood for reliable and affordable annual exams and birth control. After having two children, my husband went to Planned Parenthood for a vasectomy, as we did not have health insurance. When my daughter became sexually active, I suggested she visit Planned Parenthood for excellent medical advice on birth control and for her regular exams. They were ready to help. To this day, I go to Planned Parenthood for my gynecological exams. I make extra contributions at my visits and annually in order to support other young people who may not have the means to pay for reproductive health services any other way.” more
