    You do know that Planned Parenthood offers a lengthy list of other services other than abortions for women and men who simply cannot afford them right? Some of the services include Cancer Screenings, STD Tests, Pregnancy tests, Pap Smears, Mammograms, Birth Control, etc. Not every Planned Parenthood offers abortions services the Scranton location included. It shouldn’t be any of your concern what a woman does with her own body regardless. You do know that sometimes abortion services are performed due to medical reasons and even rape. There are bigger things going on in the world that you should be focusing on. Please educate yourself before shaming people for making their own personal choices. Worry about your selves.

        Quit trying to justify what Planned Parenthood does. While some offices may not perform abortions nonetheless counseling to have them does. And never can you justify the taking the of a HUMAN baby’s life! ABORTION IS MURDER! And nonesense about the adoption problem. We need to make adoption more affordable. Plus the pregnancy may not have occured if moral living took place.
