03 Aug Truth from an Unlikely Source
You already know you can’t always believe what you read or hear from the media, but one of the biggest violators of truth telling is your local Planned Parenthood affiliate.
In collusion with media and leftist politicians, Planned Parenthood regularly disseminates misinformation and distortions about their business model and what really happens in their clinics.
But the truth always finds a way to the surface and in the case of Planned Parenthood, it recently came from an unlikely source – Planned Parenthood’s own annual report. Diane Robertson shares with us some of the details about the sordid record of the abortion giant.
On behalf of the unborn,

The Abortion Giant Inadvertently Tells the Truth
by Diane Robertson
Planned Parenthood, One of the Only Places to Obtain Birth Control?
Planned Parenthood is by no means one of the only places women can go to for birth control. If the birth control for just a few dollars at the local drug store isn’t sufficient, anyone can go to a walk-in clinic or see a primary care physician to receive an inexpensive prescription or have any number of other birth control services performed.
Second, abortions make up at least a third of Planned Parenthood’s clinic income, and more than 10 percent of all its revenue, government funding included, from its abortion procedures. Any for-profit, or non-profit business wouldn’t deny that a third of their revenue is central to their endeavor. It would probably be a well-protected and consistently developing part of the business—just like Planned Parenthood.
Third, Planned Parenthood is the biggest abortion provider in the United States. They kill more than 300,000 unborn babies each year and make a big profit doing so. From the 2014-15 fiscal year to the 2015-16 fiscal year, Planned Parenthood performed 5,000 more abortions, while cancer exams dropped by 136,244. Planned Parenthood performs 33% of the total abortions in the United States, while their cancer screening is at most 2%. Cancer screening is a minuscule part of what Planned Parenthood does compared to its abortion business.
