Planned Parenthood opens up in Baton Rouge


Good to know that Planned Parenthood is setting up shop in Baton Rouge. I doubt the Magazine Street location is up and running. How long until the evangelicals go and protest. I mean, hurricane relief gets old fast. Might as well go back to routine protesting against reproductive rights.


Planned Parenthood open in B.R.

Planned Parenthood of Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta (PPLAMD) announced that the Baton Rouge Health Center is open and providing family planning services for Hurricane Katrina evacuees. Men and women can visit the Baton Rouge Health Center for birth control, emergency contraception, condoms and other family planning services.

"We want the people of Baton Rouge and all the men and women displaced by Hurricane Katrina to know that Planned Parenthood is here to serve them in their time of need," said Keetha Buster, Interim CEO of PPLAMD. "Many people fled their homes with only the clothes on their backs and we want to make sure that they remain healthy and avoid an STD or an unintended pregnancy."

The Baton Rouge health center is located at 3955 Government Street, Suite 2. Men and women can call 225-387-1167 for more information and an appointment.
