Planned Parenthood received almost $550 Million in public money.
That means that tax dollars from every American were funneled through our government to Planned Parenthood – the largest abortion provider in the world. Liberals (and PP supporters) will be quick to say that that money is not used for abortions – because federal law is supposed to keep that from happening.
Liberals will also point to Planned Parenthood’s own internal figures to say that “only 3%” of their business is abortion related… that is a HUGE distortion of the truth.
The fact of the matter is that 51 percent of Planned Parenthood’s yearly clinic income – their only self-sustaining revenue source – comes from abortion, 329,445 abortions.
40 percent of all reported abortions committed in the United States occur at a Planned Parenthood clinic, making it by far the largest abortion provider in America. (Editor’s note: When using the national abortion numbers from the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood does 27.5 percent of all abortions in the United States,)
Planned Parenthood claims to provide 11 million “services” in America each year. From this overly inflated number, they calculate that the 329,445 abortions they committed in their last reported year amounts to only 3 percent of their services.
Planned Parenthood’s 3 percent figure has been bought hook, line, and sinker by the mainstream media as proof positive that Planned Parenthood isn’t really about abortion. But if you take even a cursory look at Planned Parenthood’s own data, that claim begins to unravel and quickly.
Planned Parenthood’s latest report states that it performed “11 million services during nearly five million clinical visits.” So, now their abortion number jumps to 6.6 percent of clinic visits were for abortions. That’s right 6.6 percent of all visits to Planned Parenthood result in an abortion.
Digging a little deeper, Planned Parenthood claims that all those “services” it provides only go to 3 million women. So by its own admission, 11 percent of the women that visit a Planned Parenthood clinic in any given year obtain an abortion there.
Live Action has been conducting multi-state investigations of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry since 2007. These investigations and subsequent public education campaigns have revealed malfeasance, lawlessness, and contempt for human life and safety at all levels of the organization, from the local counselors and nurses all the way up to the CEO’s desk.
We must demand that our tax dollars stop funding Planned Parenthood.
It does not matter that these dollars are not specifically used on abortions – the money goes to keeping Planned Parenthood afloat, which in turn helps them continue to be the largest abortion provider in America (and the world). Not another public dollar should be spent funding the greatest Holocaust the world has ever seen…
