Planned Parenthood of the Columbia/Willamette

PlanPhoodYou may remember reading about Planned Parenthood in these pages not very long ago; it was just in November that they won $250 and our third Quarterly award.  Well, it seems that for some unknown reason Planned Parenthood’s popularity is only growing these days.  While their November win was a squeaker, they won this award with twice the votes of their nearest competitor.  In their last article we told you about the history of the organization from the Planned Parenthood website.  This time we’ll share some articles from other sources about their services, funding, and more.  Congratulations Planned Parenthood once again, and we’re sure they’ll put the $500 to good use!
