Where To Find Services For Family Planning In Houston


While most remember the 1993 playoff match between the Houston Oilers and Buffalo Bills as “the comeback” game, I remember it for a whole nother reason. 

It’s the day my dad gave me the sex talk. 

It was a brief talk. Only 5 words to be exact.

His exact words were: 

Nicholas, always wear a raincoat.

Then he showed me a condom, and that was that. It was the first and last time he ever talked about sex with me. 

At 10 years old I had no idea what he was talking about.

What about a raincoat??

And what’s that foil looking paper in your hand???

I had so many questions, but for whatever reason (uncomfortable with the subject or still steaming because the Oilers blew a 35 point lead) he didn’t delve into the subject that day. 

Anyway, that trip down memory lane brings us to the purpose of this guide. While I couldn’t have asked for a better father, he surely didn’t provide much guidance on family planning! 

Luckily for you there are plenty of places that you can go where professionals are comfortable and willing to answer any family planning questions you have. 

Whether you need birth control pills, condoms or sex ed counseling, these  clinics can accommodate you. 

In the next section we’ll show you exactly where you can find these family clinics via map.

    A lifetime of pain? What a sad view of sex, life, and family.

    It seems strange that you go to great lengths to list so many places and focus on erasing the main point of sex for our species: reproducing ourselves. Having fun – or “five minutes of pleasure” as you called it, is a powerful bonus.

    You also ignored a rampant side effect of “consequence free sex” (aka shacking up, friends with benefits, or random hookup culture in general): massive numbers of cases of sexually transmitted diseases.

    When young people visit the Supposedly Family Planning clinics you listed, they become customers in more ways than one. From cradle to grave. Have you seen the posters encouraging young people living with STDs to keep on keeping it real? Just pop your meds and is up to you if you tell or do not tell your partner for the moment that you are positive for any disease. Why not? He or she can just become another case or customer.

    And when your chosen method of contraception fails, all of these clinics will either refer you or provide abortion. If you did not mean to become a parent yet, although you consented to the act that causes parenthood – why not erase the baby?

    Never mind that this is a separate human being at the start of his or her development. Who does not consent to being aborted.

    Where is the freedom, health, or pleasure in that?

      Hey Houston Mama I completely respect your passion, abortion can be a hot button topic.

      This guide wasnt created with the intent of supporting or condemning abortion…just directing people to family planning clinics in Houston. I can see both sides of the abortion argument, but I also respect peoples rights to live their life as they choose. As for the comment about a lifetime of pain thats directed at some of the hardships that come with unplanned pregnancies, not the actual child. It was poorly worded therefore it was removed.

      I do appreciate your thoughts because I’m the first to tell you I don’t have all the answers!
