Cecile Richards, the current president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), has repeatedly claimed that the root cause of abortion is unintended pregnancy. She tells her audiences that this is why Planned Parenthood emphasizes contraceptive services and other reproductive health choices for its clients—including underage teens. Richards explains that, in this way, PPFA is contributing to a decline in the surgical abortion rate.
Obviously Richards not only does not admit that a human person dies during an abortion, but she fails to explain that most of the popular—and lucrative for Planned Parenthood—birth control methods can also act to abort children. Such details are not of interest to the queen of Planned Parenthood’s misinformation machine.
Richards has defended her organization’s commitment to improving women’s health while repeatedly failing to provide the public with facts—including an honest answer to this question: “Why is it that Planned Parenthood promotes surgical abortion as part of its overall reproductive health program?” Richards and her co-workers labored tirelessly to ensure passage of the Obama health care reform law; her henchmen were already in place within the Department of Health and Human Services, paving the way for even more tax dollars to be poured into the PPFA steam engine. Clearly PPFA will stop at nothing to acquire further enhancements for its efforts to drive unsuspecting teens and young women through its door for birth control. And when that fails, Planned Parenthood is most willing, of course, to provide a helping hand by offering surgical abortion, as the organization is well known for being among the best creators of a permanent clientele. That revolving birth control door always provides the abortion back-up, which is why too many gullible clients become the mothers of dead children—children killed by the very reproductive health services Richards claims help curtail surgical abortion.
But now, thanks to the efforts of Jim Sedlak and Rita Diller of American Life League’s Stop Planned Parenthood International (STOPP), we have the facts and are exposing the horrendous specifics that Richards and her cronies have long denied.
One such startling statistic, taken from Planned Parenthood’s records, is that between 1973—when the United States Supreme Court decriminalized surgical abortion in America—and 2008, Planned Parenthood has facilitated the direct killing of 4,987,817 preborn children. Yes, nearly five million dead babies!
That gruesome number accounts for more than 25 percent of the children killed by abortion in the USA.
Planned Parenthood claims that its abortion business represents less than three percent of its total services. Since nearly 40.6 percent of its total income is received from abortion services, it is obvious that it again has chosen to deny the obvious, obfuscate the truth and play on the heartstrings of the unaware by appealing to the average person’s concern for the poor and downtrodden while raking in the blood money.
Based on the dubious distinction of being a not-for-profit charity that has garnered more than $152 million from this slaughter, it is perfectly clear that Planned Parenthood is committed to increasing its abortion business at all costs, even if it means deceiving the public.
