Before she retired, Beth Grosshans worked as a clinical child psychologist in Flemington and Princeton, New Jersey. Beth Grosshans also authored Beyond Time, a book about parenting, and is a staunch supporter of Planned Parenthood.
According to Planned Parenthood, the organization received an unexpected rise in queries about birth control at their health centers and via their online portal directly after Donald Trump won the electoral vote and became president-elect. Trump vowed that he would cut the federal funding of Planned Parenthood, which may have pushed citizens to book appointments with the non-profit organization. Although there is no assurance that Trump will push through with his promise, patients are taking the threat to the organization seriously and are actively seeking out Planned Parenthood’s help.
Most of the appointments were set because patients wanted to access birth control before the possible aforementioned stripping of Planned Parenthood’s funds. According to Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, there has even been an increase in requests for IUD insertions. They predict that the number will rise as long their organization is still operating around the nation.
