The Planned Parenthood Book Sale starts this Thursday! 60th Anniversary! [View all]


Did you know? Proceeds from the last Planned Parenthood Book Sale helped Planned Parenthood educators host 2,600 programs that reached 40,500 teens, adults, parents, and families in Iowa!

The impact is incredible—and it’s about more than just numbers. Comprehensive sex education increases healthy relationships, lowers rates of unintended pregnancies, and decreases need for abortion. Sex education changes lives.
