You realize that Planned Parenthood does a whole lot more the provide/refer people for abortions, right? That’s only about 2% of what they do. They provide medical care for woman who could not afford it normally. They also give out lots of different forms of contraception (for free or low cost), which, you know, prevents pregnancies in the first place. So every time you cheers about a planned parenthood closing, you are cheering the fact that more woman can get pregnant, and such, need an abortion.
In 2009, abortion was a ‘service’ that Planned Parenthood provided to 12% of its ‘clients’ overall, and to 97.6 percent of the mothers who reported themselves pregnant. It committed 332,278 abortions in that year alone. That’s an average of 910 children butchered each and every day.
Since the average cost of an early surgical abortion was $451, according to the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s former ‘special affiliate’, abortion accounted for approximately 37% of Planned Parenthood’s income in 2009. And that figure — nearly $150 million in revenue from killing babies — is a low estimate, considering that Planned Parenthood also commits later and more expensive abortions.
I am not against a Planned Parenthood that would return to a time before they killed prenatal children. But they have the taste of blood in their mouths and they will never let go of abortion. So they must be stopped, along with all of the other abortion chambers in the United States and around the world. This is non-negotiable.
