Planned Parenthood IS the Problem
On Tuesday, the highly paid non-profit head visited Kingston, New York to host a round-table meeting with local abortion activists and the media, The Daily Freeman reports.
Richards and local Planned Parenthood supporters talked up the abortion chain and claimed that women will suffer if it Congress cuts off its taxpayer funding.
. . . What Planned Parenthood is the “solution” to, either Richards did not specify or the report did not mention.
The abortion chain prefers to talk about its non-abortion services because they are less controversial. But it has become very clear that Planned Parenthood is first and foremost an abortion provider. Every year, its facilities kill more than 300,000 unborn baby boys and girls in abortions – approximately one-third of all abortions in the U.S.
. . . Data from the abortion group’s own annual reports show a growing focus on abortions and a continued decrease in its non-abortion services. From 2009 to 2014, “cancer screenings” dropped from 1,830,811 to just 682,208. “Breast exams/breast care” fell by more than half, from 830,312 in 2009 to 363,803 in 2014 and Pap smear tests dropped nearly two-thirds, from 904,820 to 271,539. In that same time period, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers remained steady, hovering at around 320,000 per year.
Planned Parenthood is not the solution for women seeking cancer treatments. It doesn’t do mammograms, and its cancer screenings are dropping rapidly.
It is not the solution for pregnant women looking for prenatal care or information about parenting or adoption resources. A recent investigation by Live Action revealed that prenatal care basically is non existent at Planned Parenthood, and ultrasounds are denied to patients unless they want an abortion.
It is not the solution for victims of sexual abuse either. Planned Parenthood has been caught multiple times failing to report suspected sex trafficking and sexual abuse of minors.
And it is not the solution to women’s health care. Across the country, community health centers outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities by more than 20 to 1 and offer more comprehensive health care without doing abortions. . . . Read More
