“Two years after undercover videos rocked Planned Parenthood, the organization has emerged stronger than ever financially–thanks to a massive influx of private donors and support that is helping the organization evolve and restructure.” National Catholic Register.
It seems unbelievable that the truth about Planned Parenthood affiliates selling the body parts of unborn children could bring this result.
Not surprising is what PP is doing with the money: using it to keep more money coming in.
PP has allocated $96 million “to strengthening its grass-roots activists and lobbying apparatus” in order to “strengthen and secure Planned Parenthood.”
This news comes in the light of greatly reduced client numbers–down from three million to 2.4 million. PP is experiencing a 13 percent decrease in total services, a 14 percent decrease in abortion facilities, and most remarkably, a 60 percent decrease in prenatal care.
It seems some expectant mothers have seen the Daleiden videos. Or read the online reviews.
While the number of abortions PP performed declined from 327,000 to 321,000, PP’s share of the abortion market increased to 35 percent. As nationwide abortion numbers go down, the “procedure” is still a big money maker for PP.
In the meantime, a study cited in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons finds that most women aren’t choosing abortion of their own free will. Nearly three-quarters of post-abortive women report having “experienced at least subtle forms of pressure” to abort their children.
More than half of those surveyed “decided to abort in order to make others happy.” And nearly 30 percent aborted because of fear “they would lose their partner if they failed to terminate the pregnancy.”
Yet most couples who abort their child break up. Giving the other partner a higher priority than the unborn child does not save the relationship.
Planned Parenthood is supposed to be the great hope for women. But making money off people who are doing something they feel forced to do isn’t hopeful or helpful. It’s exploitative and self-serving. It has nothing to do with freedom or choice.
Planned Parenthood is bad for babies–bad for women–bad for couples.
Planned Parenthood is bad for America.
