Is it true that Planned Parenthood provides high-quality, low-cost contraception?

Planned Parenthood officials frequently declare that one of their central missions is to provide high-quality, low-cost contraceptives, but the evidence suggests otherwise. Condoms distributed by Planned Parenthood were rated among the worst available in a study by Consumer Reports magazine. And Planned Parenthood has been exposed for dramatically overcharging their clients for Plan B
emergency contraception; pills purchased for $4.25 to $4.50 were resold for $25 to $32 — a markup of 400–600%.
