This is not an attack on abortions; it is an attack on women. Because family planning is much more [than abortion]. My mother was really religious to me when I was young. It is not so much anymore. And I couldn’t have gotten contraception without Planned P. I couldn’t have gotten condoms and contraception and all those things that I needed as a normal teenage girl growing up in a Jesus house.
