Planned Parenthood clinics are marking their territory in academic institutions to “serve” some of our nation’s most vulnerable youth. According to an online article published last month by The New American, fifty clinics are set to open within Los Angeles area high schools over the next three years. Planned Parenthood will collaborate with the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles County Department of Health to operate these clinics.
Staffed by two public health officials trained by Planned Parenthood, the clinics will offer birth control options, pregnancy counseling, and testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases. A Planned Parenthood nurse practitioner will be on school grounds once a week. At this moment, abortions will not be provided at the clinics, but the trained public health officials could “likely” offer abortion referrals.
At least five of these clinics are already open in Los Angeles area high schools. All fifty high schools are located in mostly low-income neighborhoods that lack medical centers with health services for sexually active teenagers.
