In an interview on “America with Jorge Ramos,” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said abortion, “Is not something that I feel is really part of this conversation.”
It’s no secret that abortion is Planned Parenthood’s bread and butter. Pro-choice advocates argue that shutting off the taxpayer spigot to Planned Parenthood would reduce funding for counseling services, HIV testing, and other reproductive health and family planning services. But abortion is their real business.
To be clear, in 1997, Planned Parenthood, according to their own fact sheet, received $165 million from taxpayers and performed 165,174 abortions. They performed 305,310 abortions in 2007 and received $363 million.
Noticing a pattern?
As Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding increased, so did the number of abortions.
In contrast, also according to Planned Parenthood, the number of prenatal clients they served was less than 0.09 percent of the total services Planned Parenthood provided in 2008. Pregnant women seeking help from Planned Parenthood were 27 times more likely to receive an abortion than receive prenatal care or be referred to an adoption service.
Planned Parenthood performs 134 abortions for every adoption referral. Abortion is their business, and business is booming.
More appalling, Thatsabortion.com says 70 percent of Planned Parenthood’s abortion factories are concentrated in minority neighborhoods. Indeed, while black child-bearing women make up just 3 percent of the population, they comprise a heartbreaking 30 percent of abortions. Hispanic women make up a similarly disproportionate 25 percent. That means over 50% of abortions are performed on less than 10% of the population.
