Police Brutality

It’s no secret that racism is a prevailing problem in America. It’s not something that happened overnight it’s a deep-rooted issue. It affects a lot of things, but one of the big things in today’s society would be police brutality. How would you feel knowing you’re more likely to be killed or even harmed by police simply for the color of your skin? I in no way intend to bash police because I know for a FACT that it’s not all police, heck my mom is a detective so I have a lot of internal insight of the workings of a police force. Again this is not intended to bash, I simply want to shed light on facts. People deserve to know the truth about what’s going on.

Utica Planned

The Planned Parenthood, located in Utica, New York, was opened about 40 years ago. It’s currently named after Margaret Roberts, a former co-president/CEO, who has since passed away. A couple of years ago the budding was renovated to really push emphasis on security, privacy all while being fairly modernized to push the sense of comfort.

There’s no secret Planned Parenthood deals with nasty protestors on a daily at probably all of their establishments. These protestors make it a point to vocalize their disgust for Planned Parenthood’s practices. The most complained about practice would undoubtedly have to be abortion. However, what they fail to realize is that Planned Parenthood actually offers a wide range of services, not only for  women but men as well. Their services include, but aren’t limited to birth control distribution, emergency contraception (morning after pill), general health care, HIV services, LGBT services, men’s health services, patient education, pregnancy testing and services, STD testing, treatment and vaccines. In their blind loyalty to their ignorance, they lack the vision to see the bigger picture that is Planned Parenthood.Planned_Parenthood_logo.svg
