How Planned Parenthood Saved My Life

July 7, 2017
Katie Visco

  Emily Ferry, an Alaskan native, was 22-years-old when Planned Parenthood saved her life. She had just moved to Alaska, and was balancing being a young adult with a new job in a new city. The transition was hard for her, but that wasn't the only thing transitioning in her life. Her stomach had begun to swell alarmingly, so much that others began to congratulate her on her new pregnancy. The only issue? She was not pregnant. With no idea where to turn for quick, easy health care, at a cost she could afford with her entry level salary, she turned to Planned Parenthood. Like millions of others, Emily received the help she needed, and it ended up saving her life. Planned Parenthood helped recognize right away that Emily's "pregnancy" was in fact a large tumor engulfing her right ovary. They connected her with the proper care, and a successful surgery lead to her full recovery. Without Planned Parenthood's speedy, initial care, Emily might not be here today to share her story. Planned Parenthood is commonly misconstrued to only perform abortions, when in fact abortions represent less than 3% of the overall care they provide. No federal funding goes towards abortions, only towards every day sexual and reproductive help towards women in need across the country. At a time when legislation specifically affects Planned Parenthood's budget to offer services, please click here to learn more about how you can help --so that women like Emily can thank you for it.
