Connecting the Dots: Abortion SuperCenter Coming to New Orleans

While Planned Parenthood does not currently perform surgical abortions at their two Louisiana facilities ,and they not announced whether they will perform abortions at the Claiborne Ave site, we encourage you to connect the dots....

  • Planned Parenthood Claiborne PropertyPP Does Abortions: Planned Parenthood (PP) is the largest provider of abortions in the nation, performing 329,445 abortions in 2010. (1)
  • PP is Expanding Abortions: Reports have shown that Planned Parenthood is requiring all their agencies to provide abortion services. (2)
  • PPGC Does Abortions: Organizations closely aligned (3) with Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC) operate three abortion facilities in Southeast Texas (4), including a massive 78,000 sq ft six-story facility in Houston that opened in 2010.  In 2010, these corporations performed up to 12,503 abortions at these three facilites alone (5).
  • PPGC is Expanding in New Orleans: Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast released information on August 24th 2011 (6) detailing their plans to build a 6,000 sq ft "New Orleans Health Center" at 4636/4624 S. Claiborne Ave in New Orleans to be funded via a capital campaign with the goal of raising $4.2 million dollars. City records show that Planned Parenthood purchased the two parcels on Claiborne Ave in 2010 for a purchase price of $400,000.  According to their email newsletter, they plan to open in 2013.  PPGC has applied for initial city permits for demolition of the vacant building on one piece of the property.

Benjamin Clapper, Executive Director of Louisiana Right to Life, said the following,

"We do not want an abortion supercenter in New Orleans. Planned Parenthood leads the national abortion industry by performing over 300,000 abortions each year. Their planned expansion in New Orleans follows their national trend of establishing massive abortion facilities in the heart of a city. They believe in abortion-on-demand, and we expect their actions here to be no different. Citizens need to be informed of this possibly significant expansion of abortion in New Orleans."

  • Adoptions? As the nation's largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood in 2005-2006 performed nearly 300,000 abortions across the country. In its annual report for that year, PP reported ZERO adoption referrals (Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) 2006 Annual Report).
  • Not For Profit?  In 2005-2006, Planned Parenthood, a "non-profit" corporation, reported profits of $55.8 million while it received over $300 million in state and federal tax dollars (PPFA 2006 Annual Report).
  • Racial Targeting: Planned Parenthood is not only the largest abortion provider in the nation, but it targets African-American babies for abortion. Here are some facts:

    • 78% of Planned Parenthood facilities are in minority communities.

    • African-Americans make up 12% of the population of the United States, but constitute 35% of abortions in the U.S.

    • Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood, was a well-known support of eugenics and clearly wanted to root out the African-American population.

On July 1, 2006, Planned Parenthood of Louisiana and the Mississippi Delta, Inc, merged with the much larger and wealthier Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas, Inc.

Shortly after, the strengthened Planned Parenthood purchased a six-story building in Houston that will become the largest free-standing abortion facility in the Western Hemisphere with 640 sq feet dedicated to performing late-term abortions.

Positioned outside the gates of the University of Houston, the new abortion facility is situated in a low-income minority district of Houston and is expected to open in the Fall of 2008 (Learn more about the new abortion facility).
