Let's be Clear: Planned Parenthood Performs Abortions. It's NOT a Women's Health Center

from Legal
Tuesday, Planned Parenthood President Cecil Richards testified before a Congress.

During the five-hour-long hearing, Congresswoman Mia Love asked Richards how many mammogram machines Planned Parenthood has at their disposal. Contrary to the organization’s long-standing claims, Richards admitted they have none.
Big deal, Planned Parenthood doesn’t do mammograms, right? Perhaps, except that the federally subsidized organization has long claimed a crucial cornerstone of the women’s health care services they provide include mammograms.

In every instance where “federal budget cuts” or “defunding” are used in conjunction with “Planned Parenthood,” the organization rallies the troops and holds a full court public relations campaign to talk about the healthcare services they provide; demagoguing Republicans and pro-life advocates for wanting to prevent access to women’s health care.

The women’s healthcare services Planned Parenthood offer (minus the baby killing), are services most, if not all General Practitioners provide. They’re also (again, minus the baby killing), requisite under Obamacare.

To illustrate the minimal healthcare offerings of Planned Parenthood, a graphic:
86% of Planned Parenthood’s revenue comes from abortions, another tidbit unearthed in Tuesday’s hearings. Not helping their give us ALL the tax money case was the revelation that Planned Parenthood raised $127 million over their expenditures last year. When asked how the $127 million was spent, Richards stammered, began listing expenses until she was corrected, and struggled as she attempted to explain how the organization spent their multi-million-dollar overage.

Outside of abortions, Planned Parenthood’s primary function is filtering money to and from Democratic organizations, giving in excess of $574,000 to candidates seeking federal office alone.

Planned Parenthood does not provide unique or special healthcare services like mammograms, they profit from killing babies and harvesting their brains, tell me again — why are we paying for this?

Planned Parenthood is a women's health screening facility, whose primary mission is to perform abortions.

And America yawns.

As Carly Fiorina said: "Shame on us!"

Does Planned Parenthood offer PAP smears?

Always On Watch said...

Never mind. I see PAP smears on the list.

But aren't PAP smears free via ObamaCare anyway?

Thersites said...

Yes. But abortions aren't.

Thersites said...

...and like "Green Energy"... the only way abortions can exist for the poor is to have government subsidize it, DESPITE the fact that it's illegal for the federal government to do so.

Thersites said...

The $500+ million that the Government gives annually to Planned Parenthood would fund an annual Solyndra.

Nobody knows how to waste money faster than Uncle Sam!
