Here are some of the responses callers received when contacting Planned Parenthood offices across the country:

Tempe, Az

“Unfortunately, no we wouldn’t provide any pre-type services here at Planned Parenthood

Fort Collins, CO

“We’re not a prenatal care provider

Albany, NY

No Planned Parenthood does prenatal care, hun.”

“We don’t offer prenatal care at Planned Parenthood.  We specialize in abortions.  You know, that’s what our ultrasounds are for, to see how far along the, um, patient is.”

“Planned Parenthood, we do birth control, you know, things like that, terminations.  We check for STI, but we don’t do prenatal.”
