Exposing Planned Parenthood's Fuzzy Math
The media continues to sugarcoat Planned Parenthood’s
almost-singular focus on abortion. On the media’s watch, the
nation’s largest chain of abortion facilities continues to
operate with our tax dollars while killing millions of
innocent unborn babies. But thanks in part to the Internet;
the faithful work of pro-lifers continues to expose the truth
behind the deception.
My pro-life friends at Live Action recently dismantled
Planned Parenthood’s favorite talking point—that abortion
accounts for only 3% of their services. The abortion industry
giant could slyly arrive at this fuzzy math simply by stating
that they hand out 97 condoms for every 3 abortions performed.
But their pro-abortion spin doesn’t work in business terms
when crunching the numbers.
According to their own figures, in 2009 alone, Planned
Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions. That’s like wiping out
the population of a sizeable city. Since the average cost of
an abortion was $468, Planned Parenthood’s total abortion
income that year was $155,506,104. In light of their total
“health center” income of $404,900,000, Planned Parenthood
made out like bandits with abortion, which generated 38.4% of
this total revenue.
One of the Live Action team made a convincing analogy when
comparing Planned Parenthood to the business world. Click here
According to the 2009 figures that we’ve documented on our
Planned Parenthood’s claim of providing “unbiased information”
to women about their options is all smoke and mirrors. For
every adoption referral they made, they did a mind-numbing 340
abortions. The reason—abortion’s a lucrative business. With
all that blood money it’s even more appalling that they got
over $363 million of your tax dollars.
The millions of lives that have become casualties of their
abortion mills are difficult to wrap one’s mind around.
Planned Parenthood talks about “family planning,” but you can
clearly see their priority is abortion.
So you shouldn’t be surprised that Planned Parenthood is
the most aggressive pro-abortion lobbyist on Capitol Hill.
Each day over 3,000 lives hang in the balance, and they see
them as dollar signs. Please join me in exposing the truth
about their true and deadly agenda.
Together we can win the victory.
