Char­lotte needs Planned Par­ent­hood

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - Opinion -

In re­sponse to “Planned Par­ent­hood chief says ‘abor­tion hangs by a thread’ ” (June 5):

With re­cent laws be­ing passed deny­ing woman ac­cess to abor­tion, Planned Par­ent­hood’s up­town clinic will be a re­lief to have in Char­lotte.

It of­fers woman and fam­i­lies a place to be taken care of with­out scru­tiny.

Abor­tion is avail­able at Planned Par­ent­hood. That is not its sole pur­pose. Birth con­trol, fam­ily plan­ning, sex ed­u­ca­tion and can­cer screen­ing are of­fered on a slid­ing scale.

Planned Par­ent­hood re­mains be­cause of Roe v. Wade. With­out this in­sti­tu­tion, women will suf­fer the con­se­quences of not hav­ing their choices.
