Planned Parenthood Promotes Facade of Health Care

The abortion mill isn’t about “women’s health”; it’s about killing unborn babies.

Planned Parenthood recently released its annual report for last year. Unsurprisingly, in reviewing the report it’s apparent that abortion is still the organization’s number one business, though PP is still attempting to distort this reality.

The abortion mill claims that the procedure amounts to only 3% of its business. But that’s a cleverly disguised farce. Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review explains, “Planned Parenthood arrives at this statistic by dividing the abortion procedures for the year (332,757) by the number of ‘services’ the group provided (9.7 million). The report defines a ‘service’ as a ‘discrete clinical interaction,’ such as the administration of an STI test.”

DeSanctis continues, “Consider what this means in practice. If a woman visits a Planned Parenthood facility to obtain an abortion, and, while she’s there, is also given a pregnancy test, an STI test, a cancer screening, and contraception, the abortion procedure would be just 20 percent of the ‘services’ she received. This is why the group takes pains to list its annual ‘services,’ which is much higher than the number of patients Planned Parenthood saw last year (2.4 million). Using this deceptive formula, the report manipulates the data to make it appear as if abortion is a tiny fraction of its work, though a much higher percentage of actual patients who visit Planned Parenthood clinics are there, first and foremost, to obtain an abortion.”

This deceptive practice is nothing new for PP. Back in 2015, PP CEO Cecile Richards admitted to Congress that none of PP’s clinics had mammogram machines. This was a significant acknowledgement as a prevalent myth among Planned Parenthood’s fanbase is that the organization provides mammogram services for women. It’s one of many lies that weave the fabric of an evil institution.
