Merry Christmas! An abortion gift certificate just for you
The gift certificates can be given to women and men to cover essential services like screenings and birth control. Services such as annual exams for women, which include breast exams and Pap tests, typically cost $58.
"Nearly 800,000 Hoosiers don't have health insurance and can't afford basic health services. Why not buy a loved one a gift this holiday season that they really need and one that will contribute to their health throughout the year?" asked PPIN President and CEO Betty Cockrum. "The gift certificates are also a wonderful idea for that person in your life who puts everyone else first and has been putting off taking care of her or his own health. Now, there's no excuse for those people in your life not to get the basic health care that they need."
We called Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota to see if we could get our hands on this great holiday gift. Kathi Di Nicola, director of media relations for the regional branch, said they do not offer gift certificates and don't plan to this year.
