THE PLANNED PARENTHOOD AGENCY 2 On February 24, 2011 I spoke with Stephanie Kerry who is an employee at Planned Parenthood in Flint, Michigan. She informed me that there are several locations in the state of Michigan, but that they are one of 800 plus agencies throughout the United States that help men, women, and young adults with sexual and reproductive health issues. They have international locations as well. London is their headquarters. She stated that the first birth control clinic was founded by Margaret Sanger, in Brooklyn, New York, back in 1916. This was essentially the beginning of the first Planned Parenthood. The purpose of Planned Parenthood is the same today as it was back then. They believe it is every person’s right, regardless of age, income, marital status, or gender, to manage their own fertility. Their mission is to provide a broad range of reproductive and complementary health care services which protects and preserves these rights. In addition, they advocate public policies to ensure these rights, provide educational programs that help individuals understand their sexuality, and they are involved in promoting research for the sake of advancing technology of reproductive health care. The Flint agency offers a wide range of safe, reliable health care.
