America, Does Planned Parenthood Keep Us Safe? 

A Closer Look at Planned Parenthood's 2012-2013 Annual Report

By: Sarah Jones Zagorski, Communications Director

On December 11th, Planned Parenthood Federation of America released their annual report for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.  In the report, they list their ten most "historic" moments of the year, from new “health care centers” to “fighting” breast cancer. They even include Senator Wendy Davis’ abortion filibuster in Texas, praising her for rising up against "unprecedented" attacks on women's health.

Planned Parenthood seems especially proud that they are influencing our Latino and African-American youth through a new chat and text program online.  They even credit themselves for shifting pop culture, evident by NBC's popular television series, Parenthood, depicting the first abortion on TV in years.      

They go on to brag that our generation will be the healthiest ever, and that because of Planned Parenthood, our women will be safe from unintended pregnancies, STD's and cancer.  Seems impressive, right? From a review of their report, they sound like quite the life-saving organization. 

However, while Planned Parenthood keeps busy playing semantic word games with America, we're left to uncover what really took place at their facilities. 

In 2012, Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions, maintaining their position as the largest abortion business in America.  They also raked in 1.2 billion dollars in net assets, of which almost half came from our tax dollars

Their breast cancer screening services dropped by 14% and their prenatal services by 32%.  For every one adoption referral that Planned Parenthood facilitated, they performed 149 abortions.  And, once again, they did not perform a single mammogram.      

But at least they will keep our families safe, right? 

I wonder how safe unborn babies feel when being removed from the safe haven of their mother's womb by a suction machine 29-times more powerful than a household vacuum cleaner. During a suction-aspiration abortion, the unborn child is dislodged and sucked into a tube, either whole or in pieces. Then, as we learned from former Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson, after the abortion a staff member of the facility must review the parts of the baby removed by the vacuum system to ensure that all parts of the baby were indeed removed from the mother's womb. 

I wonder how safe women feel who leave Planned Parenthood, stripped of their dignity, expected to "recover" from the death of their child.  And I wonder how safe our families feel, knowing that an organization that supports late abortion, and even has representatives that support post-birth abortion, are teaching our children their views about our most sacred values. 

Why is it that in Planned Parenthood's Annual Report, they forget to mention all the women that leave their clinics maimed from botched abortions? Why do we never hear about the unsanitary conditions in some Planned Parenthood facilities, like the one in Delaware that was required to close down because the conditions were similar to Gosnell's House of Horrors?  

If Planned Parenthood did acknowledge these realities, would America believe that they were a safe, life-saving organization? Of course not.

In order to cover up the truth, Planned Parenthood confounds America in many ways.  They spends millions of dollars to refresh their brand.  They facilitate bus tours around the country to rally support of pro-abortion Senators.  They create pretty reports with bright images of safe and happy women celebrating their children. 

Planned Parenthood might want to cover it up, but we must expose the truth behind the largest abortion business in America.
