Dr. Beth Grosshans studied child psychology at Ohio State University and Harvard Medical School. After nearly two decades as a private practitioner, Dr. Beth Grosshans took a leave of absence in 2011 to pursue other interests, including her support of Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood provides an array of health services to men and women. The organization primarily focuses on providing services and information regarding birth control, abortion, and the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The Planned Parenthood website, which can be found at http://www.plannedparenthood.org, even maintains a live chat feature that allows individuals who have recently engaged in unprotected sex to discuss their concerns with a knowledgeable representative.

Planned Parenthood offers the morning after pill as a safe form of emergency contraception that can effectively prevent pregnancy within five days of unprotected sexual activity. Similarly, birth control allows individuals to plan the timing of a pregnancy. The abortion pill and in-clinic abortion services offer safe ways to end a pregnancy. Planned Parenthood also advocates various forms of protection to prevent STDs and helps people learn about proper condom use.
