Rachel Marie Orth responds to To harm Planned Parenthood, Minnesota Republicans are willing to savage women's health care:

"I first went to Planned Parenthood for birth control in college. At that time, they let you pay whatever you could. I found out I had abnormal cells in a pap smear. Had Planned Parenthood not been there, I may have never known and things could have gotten much worse.
