At the Health Fair on April 9 at Centennial Hall, I watched as a young 16-year-old girl approached the Planned Parenthood table. Later that day I contacted this young teenager to ask what kind of reception she received from PP. This is an example of what you can expect from PP.
She was given a condom; she was never asked her age. She was never asked whether the girls' parents were there, or whether they would approve. She was told where to get the abortifacient, RU 486 (morning-after pill), and she was asked to be sure and tell all her friends.
PP wants to start a so-called clinic in Juneau. What do you think PP will be trying to sell? This girl was never asked any questions about her general health, whether she was married, whether she had allergies, whether she was in good health. No questions, nothing. PP sells sex, promotes free and open sex. PP opposes parental notification. They oppose abstinence, but they promote and provide abortion without conscience or consequences. Is this what the parent of Juneau want for their children?
