I think planned parenthood is a good thing. While I had never needed their services, being a gay male, a lot of my family could have used them, and ultimately, we need something or someone to teach our kids. I have a 22 year old cousin with 3 sons, who are 5, 3, and 2, and all in foster care, and another cousin who is 20 and has 4 kids who are 4, 3, 2 and 2(twins). My male cousin has 3 kids by three different girls. We went to a school that taught abstinence only, and obviously it didn't work out too well for them.
