Is this getting closer?
And thanks for all the crits people I really appreciate the help.

Logo is spot on, but I don't feel like the type fits as well as your previous iterations. Something more humanist and sans serif perhaps.
Noone has seem to mention this yet, but I believe the rule of thumb is that faces are suppose to always be looking right/forward.
*edit* it was mentioned...
That last shot was much stronger. I feel like this guy has too many concepts pushed into one. When there's no speech bubble, it's cleaner. Your all caps type on the last one matched the mark better too.
Also, I agree with Steven on that rule, but I know you're making this into PP, so I'm not sure how you'd maintain the elephants with them looking forward...
Kudos for being as patient with this mark as you have!
He addressed looking right in an earlier shot, http://dribbble.com/shots/741617-Planned-Parenthood
I think the speech bubble is superfluous and forced. Rest of it is looking good.
I would change the placement of the little stripes/nicks on the elephant trunks. When I first saw it I didn't see elephants at all, I saw alien heads. Then I looked back through the previous iterations and saw the elephants. But I do like them, once I see them.
But then again, what do elephants have to do with PP? Maybe the reason for this was discussed in a previous shot...
I think this is the best yet, and the type is spot on. There is some tension in the spacing between the tusk and the lines on the nose, but i think both of those elements are nice, the spacing will work out with some polish.
@Steven Not bothered by the left-facing elephants. As we read the logo from left-to-right, its as if the elephant pair is actively engaged with us.
Previous version was better imo. The type felt better and there is no need for the speech bubble.
Maybe I’m biased toward my comic book background, but the tiny elephant reads as Wolverine in profile (thanks to the two horizontal lines and short trunk). Can’t unsee.
I'm with most everyone else and think you should just lose the speech bubble as a containing shape. Maybe there's a place for that when and if you start to develop the system the logo lives in, but for now I think keeping it simple is better.
Yeah man, the elephant is pretty hard to read. It took me until reading the comments to realize. I actually like the concept a lot and think you should definitely explore some extra versions of this logo for sure.

I've tweaked and tweaked to death on this and I'm sticking to this to present in class. If this gets shot down I'm gonna be very frustrated.
