Get the facts on Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in our country, and yet we continue to hear “they do many good things”.   A business that profits, predominantly, from the killing of over 320,000 human beings a year, here are facts on the decline in their services (2010 – 2014) as their focus remains clearly on abortion.
MUSKEGON MARCH AND MEMORIAL

Thank you to the many people and families that joined Muskegon County Right to Life on Saturday, January 21st, as we marched and prayed for an end to abortion on demand!

Planned Parenthood Number One Provider of Abortion

Planned Parenthood continually attempts to distract from the fact that they are the number one provider and promoter of abortion, but consider the facts. Their own annual report shows how their services other than abortion continue to decline, yet they receive more tax dollars. A series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress show their callous attitude about the harvesting and selling of body parts of unborn babies they engaged in.

Planned Parenthood Downplays Commitment to Abortion

Defenders of Planned Parenthood often claim abortion is an insignificant part of their business, 3% of their services.  An RLM Blog post highlights a video explaining how Planned Parenthood uses deceiving figures to distract people from the fact that they are the leading provider and promoter of abortion in the United States.

See the video

Abby Johnson, who ran a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bryan, Texas, before leaving in 2009, provided a copy of the Facility Budget for the clinic for fiscal year 2010. It's interesting to see how the services provided by Planned Parenthood appear in this budget.  This video, "Abortion Should be Safe, Legal and Rare",  is short, to the point and worth the time to watch. 

Planned Parenthood Videos

A series of undercover videos released by David Daleiden, Center for Medical Progress, show Planned Parenthood staff discussing how Planned Parenthood affiliates sell the body parts of aborted children and change abortion procedures to ensure the requested organs remain intact. The videos show the crass treatment of human life as resources to be exploited in the abortion industry.

What has David Daleiden accomplished?

It has been over a year since the undercover Planned Parenthood videos were released. During this time there has been slow, but steady progress. Here are a couple of highlights from the past few weeks. 

First, according to a leaked document, Planned Parenthood asked George Soros, Democrat billionaire, for $1.5 million after the undercover videos were released. It appears Planned Parenthood realized that this would harm their lucrative business of selling baby body parts and needed the funds to fight the negative press.

Second, the law firm defending StemExpress, a broker for aborted babies, requested to be removed from the case. StemExpress has violated HIPAA laws, violated federal laws, purchased aborted fetuses from Planned Parenthood and sold aborted fetuses to university labs.  

Third, the University of New Mexico is being accused by the United States House Panel on Infant Lives for the illegal transfer of baby tissue from Southwestern Women's Options. It was discovered that students at the University of New Mexico were dissecting aborted fetal body parts at summer camps in 2012 and 2014. Recently, the House panel found that the transfer of fetal tissue violated state laws.

House panel investigates fetal organ trafficking

On April 20 the U.S. House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives held a hearing titled "The Pricing of Fetal Tissue." Before the hearing several documents were released that clarifies the scheme used by Planned Parenthood and tissue procurement companies to traffic in the organs and tissues of abortion babies. A series of undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress first revealed these practices. Profiting from the sale of organs and tissue of abortion babies is a federal crime. Other issues the panel discussed were potential HIPAA privacy law violations and improper informed consent practices.

How are abortions done?
The prolife group Live Action have released videos detailing how abortion procedures are performed as well as an interview with Dr. Anthony Levatino, a former abortionist who performed over 1,200 abortions.

These videos are very informational and show video illustrations of the abortion procedure while Dr. Levatino explains it. These videos are featured on AbortionProcedures.com and Dr. Levatino explains a D&E (Dilation and Evacuation) abortion, aspiration abortion, the abortion pill, and induction abortion. He also answers questions regarding his work as an abortionist.

Many women aren't aware of what takes place during an abortion procedure and view it as an easy solution. However, with 31 million views more and more people are realizing how violent abortions are and that they aren't an easy, painless solution. People have commented on the abortion procedure videos saying that they have made them rethink abortion.

We encourage you to view these videos, learn more about the abortion procedure and share them with your friends and family. Too often the abortion industry hides behind the truth, but now we have the chance to expose the truth to others!

"HEALTH OF THE MOTHER"

Some say they support abortion to “save the life of the mother and the HEALTH OF THE MOTHER”. While that may sound reasonable, you need to understand the definition of "health of the mother" as it relates to abortion.

Many do not know the legal definition of “health” in this instance. The Court defined "health" to include not just physical health, but also psychological, mental and emotional health. The Court cited age, familial circumstances and anything relevant to the woman’s general feeling of well being as reasons that would justify abortion.

As a result, the law in the United States since 1973 has been abortion on demand during the entire 9 months for any reason.

A recent poll found that only 13% of Americans held the position that abortion should be legal for any reason and essentially at any time during pregnancy, the doctrine of the Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision.
