Planned Parenthood Van Drives to East Hampton Bowl Oct. 13

A free service, the van will offer information on everything from HIV to the Morning After Pill and condoms will be available.

We are looking forward to the arrival of the Planned Parenthood Van on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 3 to 7 p.m. at East Hampton Bowl.  

The van will be here with information for all of the local teens and parents including screenings for HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases and answering any questions you may have from urinary tract infections to the morning after pill. Condoms will also be availble.  


Local people have already positively addressed the van and East Hampton Bowl for helping to provide the service on the Facebook posting of the event.  I am personally thrilled that we can help provide this free service to the local community.  

We will have many future upcoming benefits here including Adopt-A-Thons, something real special one coming up with the East Hampton Library, our continued work with The Retreat and other non-profits in the area.

Everything seems to be at some cost depending on who you speak to. I won't get into any kind of political debate as that leads to people just arguing with both sides making sense and the neither side seeing it. Teenage pormiscuity is a huge problem, not only in the Hampton's but everywhere. If we can educate a child, maybe get them to think twice about even having sex, protected sex if the child can't control themselves well enough to obstain, then i think this is a good thing. I don't agree with everything that any company does, but if something positive can come of the experience and a few children change a bad path they are going down, I think it's worth it. Sorry if you disagree.

Based on your comments here I'd say you're the most level-headed person on Patch. Keep up the good work!

Stinker I'm sorry but your statements are very ignorant.Abortions are legal in this Country.A woman decides to have one and does.Planned Parenthood performs many other services for women.Sometimes poor women who have no where else to turn. Thank you Planned Parenthood for your service.
