Teen Confidentiality

Planned Parenthood comes between parents and their children.  Parents should be outraged.  The following is from PPSO (PP of Southwestern Oregon):

Free Condoms
All of our health centers offer free condoms to teens. Drop in any time during clinic hours, and you can pick up a dozen free condoms at the counter – no waiting! A brochure on the correct use of a condom is included in each bag.

Your Right to Privacy
Oregon law gives all minors the right to confidential birth control information and services, as well as testing for sexually transmitted infections and HIV – all without parental consent. If you’d like to read the official wording of the law, click here.

We are required by law to keep all of your records COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL. During your visit, we will ask you if it’s okay for us to call you if we need to communicate with you about test results or any other follow-up information. If it’s not okay for Planned Parenthood to call you, we will work out another way of contacting you that maintains your privacy.

Your Pelvic Exam

The clinician will also insert a finger in the vagina to feel the uterus and ovaries to make sure everything is healthy while checking for any signs of infection.
