Is it true that abortion makes up only 3% of the services Planned Parenthood provides? What does Planned Parenthood really do? What do they stand for? Lila Rose, founder and president of Live Action, explains:
It calls itself Planned Parenthood, and the deception begins right there. Planned Parenthood doesn’t help people plan for parenthood; it helps people escape it… Abortion, not women’s health, is Planned Parenthood’s reason for being.
Planned Parenthood performs a third of all abortions in America, that’s over 321,000 abortions each year, 800 abortions per day, an abortion every 98 seconds. As Rose points out, “that’s the equivalent of every inhabitant of St Louis or Pittsburgh wiped out, every year.” In contrast, each year, the organisation performs less than 2% of the nation’s cancer screenings and less than 2% of the nation’s breast exams.
The reality is, just about everything about Planned Parenthood is a deception. Its purpose, its funding, its very name.
