Why Our Tax Dollars Should Not Fund Planned Parenthood


Planned Parenthood’s Founding & Ethos

I’ll cut to the chase: The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, was a racist eugenicist. Here’s a couple of quotes from her: “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” [1] Elimination of certain people she considered “human weeds” was central to her Eugenics philosophy: “In this matter, the example of the inferior classes, the fertility of the feeble-minded, the mentally defective, the poverty-stricken classes, should not be held up for emulation…“ [2]

Don’t think Sanger’s vision lives on? Think again. Two out of every three of their abortion facilities are located in Black American neighborhoods. [3] Factor in that they are now targeting growing Hispanic families, and that number shoots up to 76%. Planned Parenthood’s Mission Statement from their Official IRS Tax Return states,

The purpose of the federation is: in making effective means of voluntary fertility regulation, including contraception, abortion, sterilization, and infertility services, available and fully accessible to all as a central element to reproductive healthcare in achieving, through informed individual choice, a U.S. population of stable size in an optimum environment

Planned Parenthood’s modus operandi for achieving a ‘stable sized’ population? Contraceptives and abortions. Some may try and say "Abortions only account for 3% of P.P.’s operations.” Here’s what that 3% really means:

  • Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the year ending June, 2009, or 27% of all abortions in the U.S. – 1 out of every 10 clients receives an abortion.
  • That’s 1 abortion every 95 seconds.
  • 98 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services to pregnant women were abortions. Planned Parenthood gave just 977 adoption referrals.
  • Abortions yield 37% of all Planned Parenthood revenues, by the most conservative estimates. [4]

So pro-aborts say 3% of abortions as if to ‘lessen’ the true number: 332,278.

Planned Parenthood’s business model is centered on abortion. Former Planned Parenthood clinic director Abby Johnson has written that she was given an “abortion quota” and was even told by her superiors to double the number of abortions in order to bring in more revenue. [5] Abortion patients constitute 12 percent of Planned Parenthood clients — 332,000 of 3 million unduplicated clients in its most current report. 37 percent of all Planned Parenthood clinic income revenue is from abortion procedures, according to conservative estimates. Planned Parenthood has issued a directive instructing that all affiliates must have at least one clinic that performs abortion by 2013. [6]

Planned Parenthood aides and abets criminal activity

I’m sure you’ve heard of LiveAction.org’s exposé videos of Planned Parenthood workers giving advice to a fake pimp on child sex-trafficking, underaged abortions, sex crimes against women, as well as lying about services they offer. These workers exude Planned Parenthood’s morals and true ethos.

Planned Parenthood is not safe for women and young girls. These undercover videos show Planned Parenthood employees in several states willing to aid and abet in acknowledged human sex trafficking of girls as young as 14. [7] The undercover footage resulted in the firing of Amy Woodruff, manager of the Central New Jersey Planned Parenthood clinic. [8] It also caused Planned Parenthood to call for mandatory training sessions of thousands of its employees across the country on reporting requirements. [9]

Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms and is not a significant primary care provider to women. Despite claims made by Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards and members of the media, Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms. They are also not a significant primary care provider in general. In recent reports, Planned Parenthood acknowledges that it provided primary care only to about 19,700 of its 3 million unduplicated clients. These services have been trending downward for years, from 21,247 in 2007 to 20,235 in 2008, to today’s 19,796. [10]

If you don’t want your tax dollars going to fund Planned Parenthood, contact congress now.
