In brief: At times

Planned parenthood is a generalized substitute for gynecologic and general health care for women.
Most of their efforts are in pelvic inflammatory disease, cancer detection and birth control. A few other areas of interest like pregnancy termination, a small percentage of their total efforts, have been a target of politically inspired demagogues. Female teen sexual health is addresed there.
