This is the problem with the south. It's been this way for as long as it's exsisted. Turn your head blindly the other way and critisize whatever your religion, faith, or society tells you. Planned Parenthood is essential to young women in this day in age. ESPECIALLY in the south where I would have been terrified to have grown up here, maybe gotten in with the wrong crowd and found myself needing help. Reason being, people in this area don't accept the prediciment that young women face. Planned Parenthood discourages abortion, but in the case where the woman has been sexually attacked for example, they respect her decision to terminate. Woman who are experiencing domestic violence for example, where may they turn? There are many things in this world that not everyone is going to agree with, but for once, be empathetic to those who haven't grown up privilaged. Be understanding to those women in the poor areas of charleston who don't know what other options they have. And be thankful for Planned Parenthood, because for many, it is their only hope.
