Annotation: The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is dedicated to the principle that every person has the fundamental right to choose whether or when to have children. The federation works to ensure access to sexuality education and family planning services. Planned Parenthood health centers offer high-quality sexual and reproductive health care, including family planning, gynecological care, STI/STD testing and treatment, pregnancy testing, and abortion services. Its Web site offers information on birth control, emergency contraception, abortion, pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections and diseases, gynecological exams, teens, and sexuality. The online database of the PPFA Katharine Dexter McCormick Library includes books, brochures, programs, curricula, and audiovisual materials on sexuality education. PPFA publishes a catalog, newsletter, and journal, and some or its publications are available in Spanish.
