After Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election, many women have become worried about the future of Planned Parenthood.

Men and women are able to utilize the services offered at the facilities such as family planning, preventative services, STD testing, abortions and etc. The services offered are numerous and thousands of people have utilized the medical facilities all over the U.S.
