abortion quotas

I stand with Planned Parenthood. Always.

Things Planned Parenthood has done for me:
-As a teenager, provided condom resources without judgement, that were used to prevent unwanted pregnancy.
-As a young adult, provided Birth Control resources and then birth control education when I had bad reactions to several to help prevent unwanted pregnancy.
-Provided STI screening, because lets face it, sometimes mistakes happen and you just don’t know the history of everyone.
-Both helped me identify my first pregnancy and miscarriage when I was 20 years old and provided medical assistance and counseling resources.
-Continued to supply me Birth Control as I had no health insurance from the time I was 18 until I married my husband.
-Confirmed the pregnancy of my son and provided countless resources for us without every once mentioning abortion.
*There are many reasons to consider an Abortion but Planned Parenthood does not have a secret abortion quota agenda, they help young (and not so young) adults learn and grow. They EDUCATE at low costs to those in need.

I grew up in a family where Sex was a bad word and I had NO ONE to help me understand anything. Without Planned Parenthood I quite honestly have no idea how different my life would be. Planned Parenthood is far far more than just for Abortions, they genuinely helped me start the family I wanted when I wanted it and educated me far more (without judgement) than my family ever did.

You are very ignorant and reading your posts made me very sad. Abortions are only 3% of planned parenthood and are payed out of the pockets of the people who want them. Planned parenthood provides healthcare for women. The defunding of planned parenthood is apart of the war on women and as a man you gotta stay in your own lane

You can judge for yourself if I’m ignorant or not. The truth is that Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in America. One out of every 4 abortions in this nation are performed at a Planned Parenthood facility. 

Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson said she was given a quota for abortions, and was told by her superiors to “double the number of abortions” in order to bring in more revenue. (This from Abby Johnson Op-Ed in The Hill, “Exposing the Planned Parenthood business model,” April 4, 2011)

Planned Parenthood is in the business of abortion, and right now it’s against the law for the government to fund abortion. And it’s not even run of the mill abortion. This is “careful, keep the body intact so we can cut it up into pieces” abortion. Some of which ends up with a baby on a table whose heart beats its last outside of the womb. That’s live birth. That’s wrong. 

You can call it “just a fetus” all you want, but when you’re dealing with something with moving legs and arms, and a head you have to crush so the body fits coming out of the mother, we’ve gone beyond the “cluster of cells” argument. This is serious. 

Planned Parenthood gets only a third of it’s money from the government. I’d like to see them closed down, but the truth is that denying them funding for the next year isn’t going to hurt them very much. Last year they took in 90 million dollars of extra revenue. There are plenty of women’s health clinics who provide services without government funding. If plannedparenthood withholds their services to women in mass, it’ll only be for the press.

Any proof that Planned Parenthood sells people unwanted abortions against their will? Or that something pro lifers do, making people stay pregnant when they really don't want it!

Well, first we can look at their numbers. If Planned Parenthood really respected women’s choices and laid out all options as equal and made sure women had the resources to choose anything they wanted, Planned Parenthood’s numbers for abortion, adoption referrals, and prenatal care (for those who choose parenting, since those who choose adoption could get prenatal care paid for through the agency) would be fairly close. Not necessarily equal, since women might choose to go to Planned Parenthood because they’re considering abortion.

However, out of those three options, Planned Parenthood clients choose abortion 94% of the time. That’s not by chance. It makes a lot of sense when you realize that Planned Parenthood does not make money on adoption referrals or prenatal care but DOES make money on abortion. 

If the numbers alone aren’t enough, you can ask one of many former Planned Parenthood employees who have come forward to talk about how Planned Parenthood not only promotes abortion, but has abortion quotas for their affiliates to meet. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood clinic director, has talked about this at length. She now runs an organization that helps abortion industry employees leave their jobs and find better work, and through that organization she continues to hear stories of how Planned Parenthood lies to and manipulates women for profit. 

Personally, I think the numbers would be more convincing to me if I were pro-choice and not inclined to believe what Abby Johnson has to say, but the personal accounts definitely help us see what Planned Parenthood is really all about. 

However, there’s one other point that I’ve started mentioning to people. You know how Planned Parenthood clinics have been closing as a result of abortion restrictions? People blame that on pro-lifers, but it’s really Planned Parenthood’s choice. If they wanted to continue providing all of their “good services”, they could continue to do so and stop performing abortions. They would then be exempt from all the abortion regulations and could stay open. Instead, they completely shut their doors and point the finger at us. 

If abortion was such a small part of their organization, or only one of many options, why not drop it in order to provide other necessary services for women?

Instead, abortion is so important to Planned Parenthood that they will literally shut their doors if they can’t do it. Because abortion, or rather the money that comes from it, is what keeps Planned Parenthood’s doors open. 

So if they won’t even stay open to provide other services when they can’t do abortions, why wouldn’t they pressure these vulnerable and scared women into giving them their hard-earned money for an abortion?
