A woman shared her harrowing experience being confronted with an angry crowd while making a trip to a Planned Parenthood centre after being told there was a “high chance” that she had late-term cervical cancer.
Taking to Facebook, Autumn Chanel Mizer revealed that four years prior, when she was 17 years old, she visited Planned Parenthood and had a great experience.
At 21, when she returned, it was something else altogether, and the problem wasn’t the organisation – it was the anti-abortion protestors stationed outside.
When I was 17 I went to Planned Parenthood. I had no money or insurance. I was living on my own and couldn’t even afford tampons. They gave me a long-lasting birth control that still works today, and stopped my period. They didn’t charge me.
At the age of 21, told she might have cancer, she visited a centre again.
When I was 21, just 2 months ago, I left UC after being told there was a high chance I had late-term cervical cancer.
Every place I tried to go to wanted to charge me up to $1,000 for testing. I went to planned parenthood. Being in a bigger city now, they had to escort me in the building, while protesters screamed I was a murdering b***h. they threw stuff at the building.
Autumn said that she was “insulted” and shouted a, and had to be “buzzed through 4 separate doors because they can’t go a day without getting a shooting or bomb threat.”
The real kicker, this PP didn’t even perform abortions.
It turns out the centre found she had an infection that “would kill” her.
They didn’t charge me for the tests and then took care of 90% of the expenses so I could see the correct doctor and get the medication I needed. They saved my life.
She concluded: "This is what taxes pay for. Helping women get care when they can’t afford it. It’s always been illegal to pay for abortion with taxes."
