Planned Parenthood: Yes, Or No?

Planned Parenthood: Yes, Or No?

Just an article about planned parenthood, what are your thoughts?

What exactly is planned parenthood? Planned parenthood is a nonprofit organization that conducts research and gives advice on contraception, family planning and reproductive problems. There are up sides to planned parenthood including helpful advice if you are a first time parent and possible reproductive problems that you may run into while pregnant. There are also down sides to planned parenthood as well such as abortions.

If you are looking to be on birth control for any reason, you can go to a health care provider and see all types of options that they have or you can go to one of the many planned parenthood clinics around. Birth control does not only help with preventing pregnancy, but it can also help if you have ovarian cysts, it makes your menstrual cycle more regular, and can even balance hormones. There are many forms of birth control. Some of the forms are pills, shots, and an implantation device that is inserted into the arm. These are only a few of the options that you have.

If you plan on becoming pregnant, a planned parenthood clinic may help you answer some of the questions that you have. Asking your doctor is a better option and could help you answer questions in more depth and have a better understanding of what to do. This can make harder decisions a bit easier and less stressful.

Reproductive problems are always a concern when pregnant, but that does not have to stop you from having children. There are plenty of other options if a reproductive problem does happen to occur. It is best to follow up with a doctor concerning reproductive problems.

Personally, I do not like abortions at all. There are many other options that are available other than abortions. For instance, adoption is an option. In some cases, adoption may be frowned upon as well, but it is much better than getting an abortion completely. I believe that the only way a child should be “terminated” is if something during the pregnancy naturally went wrong. For example, if the zygote (fertilized egg) attaches to cervix, a doctor cannot detach the zygote and will have to be terminated. Unfortunately, things such as this happens and it is a horrible feeling, one that hurts the parents the most.

The final questions are planned parenthood: yes, or no? Is this the way you want to do things? What are your thoughts and feelings on this topic? Feel free to share your opinions in the comments. Personally, I believe that we should not have planned parenthood. All lives matter, unborn or not.

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:

“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:


When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:

"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)
