To the Editor:
I would like to respond to Philip Hopkins' recent letter to the editor about how democracy and change is needed in our society.
Mr. Hopkins, I agree with you there, but then you start directing comments toward Planned Parenthood. First off, abortion is a legal, private decision between a woman and her doctor. Would you want a stranger to deny your bodily agency and make your health care decisions?
Talk about oppression! Did you know that less than 10% of the money donated to Planned Parenthood goes to abortion procedures? The other 90% covers free preventive healthcare, such as pap smears and cervical cancer screening.
I am the proud mother of a beautiful teenager girl. I am glad I had that choice, and I want her future reproductive rights protected as well.
