Planned Parenthood South Texas Offering Free STD Testing Today


  • Planned Parenthood Texas | Facebook

With relentless attacks against the reproductive health and rights of women, Planned Parenthood and supporters are participating in Pink Out Day — a nationwide effort to show support for the organization and its many services.

Planned Parenthood South Texas is offering free testing today for sexually transmitted infections at its location by San Antonio College on Ashby Rd.

The day of action is also meant to send a message to anti-abortion zealots and politicians.

Pink Out Day is our time to say: Listen to over a million Americans who are sick and tired of the relentless attacks on reproductive health care. Listen to the one in five American women who has received care at a Planned Parenthood health center. It will tell anti-abortion extremists and politicians that we are everywhere and we will not let them use fraud and deception to shut down the health centers so many women rely on for care. It will be women and men nationwide standing together to say: We’re not backing down, not today, not ever.

The organization is encouraging supporters to wear pink.
