Planned Parenthood Saved Me
The people speak at Planned Parenthood Saved Me, a tumblr URL so simple in its message that once you have taken a look, you will not forget why this organization is so important to its supporters.
The tumblr site was created just last week by Deanna Zandt, a highly regarded media technologist and strategist. In its first week, 254 posts appeared, from women detailing everything from their discovery of precancerous cells to condoms breaking with unplanned results and Planned Parenthood’s help thereafter; from breast cancer screenings and lumpectomies completed with the assistance of Planned Parenthood, to stories of the education of those with few or no options or health insurance. There are also stories of abortions as an option, but interestingly, these do not dominate the messages, contrary to what opponents would have the public believe.
Up front, Zandt, the site’s creator, advises there is no affiliation with Planned Parenthood. It is a people’s site without editorial input.
