The debate from the left has always been that Planned Parenthood was vital to women’s healthcare. Without it, how would they survive?
In fact, so protective are the liberal sentinels over abortion access that you truly have to wonder how women remain alive after giving birth. To hear their frenzied protests, pregnancy is the same as a death sentence for women, hence the reason they frame Planned Parenthood’s survival and continued funding as a women’s health issue.
The actual facts are, women’s health covers much broader territory than simply having access to abortion. Every need that women have, as far as cancer screenings, checkups, immunizations, etc… are covered at community health departments. The only thing these centers lack are abortion rooms.
And should a woman make the choice to carry through with her pregnancy, is Planned Parenthood there for that purpose, as well, providing prenatal screenings and checkups? Or are they simply the infanticide mill that most suspect they are?
Planned Parenthood insist that they do offer prenatal care as part of their services, but a site called LiveAction.org has released an undercover video, debunking that claim.
“The Prenatal Care Deception” is the first in Live Action’s “Abortion Corporation” series of investigative videos highlighting Planned Parenthood’s own employees saying its focus is providing abortions, not women’s health care. Live Action is releasing the investigative series as Congress plans to redirect Medicaid dollars away from Planned Parenthood to local health clinics and also vote on the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act.
Anyone who values life and the rights of the unborn should be all over this.
Planned Parenthood are desperate, at the moment. They feel their grasp on government dollars slipping away.
Although Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards told the media in 2011 that “Prenatal care – these are the kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for,” Live Action investigators searching for such services at Planned Parenthood were turned away by 92 of the 97 centers they contacted. They received responses like:
“Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care.”
– Tempe, AZ, Planned Parenthood
“No, we don’t do prenatal services. I mean, it’s called Planned Parenthood, I know it’s kind of deceiving.”
– Merrillville, IN, Planned Parenthood
“No, see, we don’t see pregnant women as a way of giving prenatal care, we see pregnant women, um, you know, if they are considering other options.”
– Santa Fe, NM, Planned Parenthood
For years, the organization has defended its practices by calling abortion only a small part of what they do. They gave an estimate of 3 percent, as to how much of their practice is made up of abortion, but the facts are, PP is responsible for 30% of the nation’s abortions.
Live Action’s previously released “3%” video uses Planned Parenthood’s own numbers to prove it doesn’t perform a single mammogram, and it performs less than two percent of all women’s cancer screenings in the United States, yet it commits over 30 percent of America’s abortions: 887 abortions a day and over 320,000 abortions last year alone. Planned Parenthood is so focused on abortion that it aborts 160 children for every one child it refers out for adoption.
Live Action is launching a digital ad campaign, at the cost of around $500,000 to get the word out to America about what is really going on with Planned Parenthood, and how they are profiting, through tax paid funds, by killing the unborn.
Lila Rose, president and founder of Live Action has been responsible for a decade of undercover work, exposing the corrupt and contemptible actions of Planned Parenthood.
“We know from past experience that Planned Parenthood is untrustworthy and lies repeatedly to the public, as it did during Live Action’s 2011 child sex trafficking exposé. Last week, Live Action released public records that show Planned Parenthood failed to report child sex traffickers to local authorities as it had claimed. Planned Parenthood also lied about retraining thousands of its staff to identify and report sex traffickers. Instead, a former manager says the sessions were used to train staff how to identify undercover journalists. You can read the article and see the evidence here.”
Are these the people who should continue to reap benefit from the pockets of taxpayers and off of the aborted lives of the unborn?
Watch the latest video and consider these things, for yourself.
