Planned Parenthood is America's leading sexual and reproductive health care advocate and provider.  Founded by Margaret Sanger in 1916 as America’s first birth control clinic, Planned Parenthood believes that everyone has the right to choose when or whether to have a child, that every child should be wanted and loved, and that women should be in charge of their destinies.
Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide provide sexual and reproductive health care, education, and information to millions of women, men, and teens in the United States each year.  Three and a half million Planned Parenthood activists and supporters also serve as advocates for sexual and reproductive rights. 

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), the national organization, is a world-renowned leader in reproductive rights and health.  PPFA provides support to affiliates nationwide and addresses reproductive health needs in developing countries through our international programs and our membership in the International Planned Parenthood Federation.
