    Interesting Facts about Planned Parenthood

    American Thinker has a great article deconstructing recent attempts to defend Planned Parenthood (abbreviated as PPFA, for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America) from conservative efforts, spearheaded by Congressman Mike Pence, to strip away the group’s federal funding.

    In essence, Planned Parenthood has very little to do with “women’s health” and everything to do with abortions.

    One particularly interesting thing about the recent budget deal was the curious willingness of Obama and liberal Democrats to agree to increases in spending reductions in exchange for the continued flow of Federal tax dollars to a group that engages in the wholesale destruction of innocent babies. They were more concerned about continuing to fund the abortion industry than they were with maintaining Federal spending in many other areas (most of which, doubtless, did not involve murdering innocent life). Obama and his Democrats have their priorities.

    From the article:

    (Read more after the leap)

    Claim: “This is about women’s health more than abortion” (Cecile Richards, PPFA President)

    This was quoted by Jonathan Alter in a March 14 opinion pieceposted on Bloomberg Opinion. But Congress already spends billions every year for women’s health care, through Medicaid, Medicare and other programs. Defunding PPFA is about no longer coercing taxpayers to contribute to the nation’s largest abortion chain.

    In its last reported fiscal year (2008-2009), PPFA clinics aborted 332,278 children, a number equal to the entire population of Cincinnati. Since 1970, PPFA has aborted an estimated 5,300,000 children, equivalent to the entire population of Colorado.

    In an interview published March 17 in the Texas Tribune, Ms. Richards spoke at length about all the healthcare PPFA provides: “We see 3 million patients each year across the country. For 97 percent of them, we provide preventive care. Three percent are abortions.”

    Yet according to PPFA’s own March 2011 Planned Parenthood Services fact sheet, 332,278 abortions were performed on some of PPFA’s three million clients in the year ending June 30, 2009. This suggests that eleven percent of their clients had abortions in that year, not three percent. But the best measure of how important abortions are to PPFA’s bottom line is the fact that abortions produce at least 37 percent of PPFA revenues “by very conservative estimates.”[1]

    PPFA has also expanded these lucrative abortion services, adding surgical or “medical” (RU-486) abortion to the services offered at an additional 75 clinics between 2005 and 2009. In that period, PPFA’s total annual abortions grew 25 percent,[2] while other services declined. For example, prenatal care clients numbered 7,021 in the most recent year (down 60 percent in the last five years),[3] and adoption referrals to other agencies numbered only 977, compared to 4,912 in 2007, (see page 7) a remarkable 80% drop in adoption referrals in only two years.

    Due to this increase in abortions and decrease in prenatal care and adoption services, 97.6 percent of PPFA “services” for pregnant women in 2009 involved killing their children, and only 2.4 percent involved prenatal care or adoption referral.

    Go back and read the above paragraph again:

    “97.6 percent of PPFA “services” for pregnant women in 2009 involved killing their children, and only 2.4 percent involved prenatal care or adoption referral.”

    Abby Johnson, former director of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas and author of the new book Unplanned, confirms the key role abortion plays in Planned Parenthood’s services. She quotes her regional director as telling her to increase abortions at her clinic in order to “get her revenue up.”[4] Only affiliate clinics that provided abortions were profitable. The director reminded Abby that “non-profit” is just “a tax status, not a business status.”[5] Sure enough, when the Bryan clinic began offering RU-486 abortions every day, profits rose.

    Ms. Johnson’s account was borne out in December 2010, when news media reported on a PPFA directive that all affiliates should begin offering abortion services within the next two years.

    Claim: Without funding for PPFA, women will lack access to mammograms, primary health care, and other necessary services

    In truth, Planned Parenthood clinics provide no mammograms. They offer only referrals to health centers, doctors, hospitals and labs for mammograms. PPFA breast exams are done by manual palpation, similar to a breast self-exam. But as a National Institutes of Health MedlinePlus fact sheet states: “There is no evidence that doing breast self exams saves lives from breast cancer.” For that, mammography is needed.

    As for primary health care services, PPFA clinics performed fewer than 20,000 such services in its last reporting year, an insignificant part of the total of 11.4 million services nationwide. Through state and federal Medicaid programs, low-income women already have access to contraception, as well as needed health care services-including testing and treatment for sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs), Pap tests for cervical cancer, and mammograms-at countless hospitals, doctors’ offices, and over 1,000 federally-funded community health centers.

    Claim: “Planned Parenthood cannot survive without federal funds”

    So states Jonathan Alter. Really? PPFA has almost one billion dollars in net assets ($994,700,000), and in its most recent filingreported $737 million in revenues for the year, not counting the $363 million from taxpayers (see page 29). Any untaxed corporation should be able to scrape by on $737 million in revenues.

    1. Good detail in this article.

      Yet in the end, Congress as a whole did nothing to change the tragic slaughter going on. How long?

    2. Jacob E. Breach says:

      The Congressional Republicans are framing the debate wrong. Actually they are letting the Democrats frame the debate which means they are going to lose. What they need to say is "Hey look, we can fund planned parenthood after we fund Defense, Entitlements, infrastructure, Education, and balance the budget. Sound good to you?" If they framed it using an argument like "We have more important issues to fund" then they could have the moral high ground and thus the support of the American people.
