A few weeks ago when the videos that have shocked the good majority of the civilized world appeared online, Planned Parenthood had to say something. These videos were so graphic and so appalling as to what exactly the organization was planning and carrying out that they needed to come up with a counter offensive and fast. So Planed Parenthood decided to take the focus off abortion and selling murdered children's body parts. They decided to minimize abortion and focus instead on the other services they provide.
As a result, the US Senate failed to achieve the 60 votes needed to de-fund the barbaric and morally bankrupt organization Monday night. Pro abortion (mostly Democratic) senators continued to use the party line of "only 3% of Planned Parenthood's 'services' are for abortion". So another words, abortion - a service which murders one life and permanently scars another is being equated in Planned Parenthood's reporting to giving out a pamphlet (service), taking blood pressure (service) or handing out a pack of pills (service).
PP is stressing the "other" services they provide (while conveniently not revealing that most have seen year over year decline while abortions continue to rise). They hide what can be easily found in their annual report where it says they did 327,166 abortion procedures in the course of one year and only 2,197 adoption referrals. That works out to approximately 149 abortions for each adoption referral. They also fail to mention that abortion services currently account for 37% of Planned Parenthood's revenue or that half a billion dollars in taxpayer funds flow into PP every year in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. Even though this money is "technically" not allowed to be used for abortions, with it Planned parenthood can funnel all the money it does receive from donors to abortion services which helps them turn a profit of nearly 127M every year. One million abortions have been performed by this organization in the last three years. This is BIG business and make no mistake, they don't want it going away. Selling baby parts? That's just icing on the cake.
So what do they do? They stick to the 3% and they shout loudly that Pro Life groups are trying to prevent women from receiving cancer screenings, birth control pills and the help they deserve through the de-funding (even though they can very easily receive these services elsewhere). They focus on minority groups and disguise their actual exploitation of them as help. They get their blind supporters to spread the sugar coated lies around the web and they scare a few senators into keeping quiet in the face of the biggest holocaust the world has ever known. And the result? They win another battle in our Senate.
But just what have they won?
Well, congratulations - your prize is a morally bankrupt nation with a missing generation of young people that could have cured Cancer and Alzheimer's, won the Nobel prize and countless gold medals. Who knows the greatness these children you murdered could have achieved or the people they could have saved, loved and helped. Planned Parenthood - you do everything but protect the weak and innocent as you claim. Your day is coming. Let us not stop fighting.
