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?
