Planned Parenthood
Protects Choice

The clinic is quite anonymous looking.
The mirrored windows are impersonal,
but the atmosphere inside is anything but.


This is your editor, Judy, a very longtime Eastside Planned
Parenthood Clinic volunteer. A current issue challenging
Choice is Proposition 85. You can see how Judy feels
about it. “We’re in an era where women’s reproductive
rights are being nibbled away. We cannot be complacent
and let others make our choices for us,” she says.

Alum Rock strollers see only blank mirrors as they pass the clinic.
Many grab quick glimpses of themselves in the reflective surfaces – not
realizing that people on the other side of the glass might be gazing out at them.
