Planned Parenthood – Not as it Looks
Planned Parenthood performs about 324,000 abortions annually, and refers only about 2,400 babies for adoption. That amounts to a mere 0.7% of its “customer” base! Other statistics indicate that the number quoted above is several years old; there are far fewer referrals today, making the situation even more lopsided.
Planned Parenthood earns hundreds and thousands for each abortion it performs, but earns virtually nothing for each adoption referral. Could money be the driver for this glaring disparity between abortions and referrals?
Further, the lopsided nature of the statistic implies that abortion is presented to women as the only possible and realistic choice. It implies that adoption is effectively ignored as an option. What kind of “choice” is it if an anxious woman is only presented one “realistic” option?
One article concludes:
- There is a direct correlation between public funding for Planned Parenthood abortions and the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood.
- Contraception distribution is simply a “teaser” for the sale of Planned Parenthood abortions.
- Planned Parenthood offers “frequent flyer” discount programs and targets children to cultivate a continuing customer base.
These are the natural consequences of a public policy that subsidizes and promotes abortions. Imagine what would happen to the cigarette smoking population if the government paid for cigarettes instead of taxing them! Then why do we believe that subsidizing abortions will have the opposite effect? …or perhaps that is not the Government’s objective in spite of its vehement assertions otherwise. One can’t tell.
The references below demonstrate how Planned Parenthood is a government sustained abortion business masquerading as a non-profit women’s health service provider. Like the Post Office and Amtrak, Planned Parenthood’s lifeline is taxpayer funding. But unlike the Post Office and Amtrak, its product is dangerous to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
All is not as it looks.
