Transcription: 
Planned Parenthood is an agency that has been around for almost a hundred years. We provide healthcare for individuals, men, women and teens. We also provide education and we also provide information for individuals to help them with their reproductive and sexual healthcare. Some of the things that we do at Planned Parenthood are cancer screenings for testicular cancer, for cervical cancer and for breast cancer. These can be very life-saving for a lot of individuals. We also do STD testing, which is sexually transmitted infections. We also manage them or treat them, depending on which ones they have. We also do birth control. We can give them options on the different types of birth control that we have available for them. And we can also test for pregnancy to see if they are pregnant. And there is something that's options counseling that's also done. The options counseling will discuss the different options that the individual has, whether they want to carry the child full-term, whether they want to do adoption or whether they would like to have an abortion. Any one of those things are discussed at that time.
