Planned Parenthood is not about planning families, but about population control.
Indeed, they are probably the most effective promoter of abortion in the United States
today. Their latest annual report (2007‐2008) indicates that in 2007, they performed
305,310 abortions, or about one‐fourth of the U.S. total. Although they like to present
figures that suggest that abortion is just a small part of the “services” they offer, their
report shows that in 2007,
• for every prenatal client served, they performed 28 abortions;
• for every adoption referral they made, they performed 62 abortions,
• for every infertility client they served, they performed 960 abortions.
Should this organization really be named Planned Parenthood? Or, should it be named
Planned Barrenhood? Seeking to downplay the significance of abortion in its programs,
Planned Parenthood counts each unit of service it provides and reports that abortion
amounts to only three percent of its services. However, approximately one‐third of its
income comes from abortion.9 Abby Johnson, who worked at a Texas Planned Parenthood
clinic for eight years, serving as its director for her last two years.
Experiencing a decline in business, she says the organization told her to bring more
abortions in the door. Johnson noted, “The money wasn’t in family planning, the money
wasn’t in prevention, the money was in abortion, and so I had a problem with that.”
Johnson resigned in October of 2009, after being asked to assist at a late‐term abortion,
and watching the unborn baby’s attempt to escape the abortionist’s instruments on an
ultrasound screen. Another third of Planned Parenthood’s income comes from our federal,
state, and local tax dollars.
The final third comes from donations from individuals, foundations and various
corporations. As an example of foundation support, in the spring of 2009, some of the
richest people in the United Statesmet in New York City. Included in the meeting were
Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, Ted Turner, Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffett and George
Soros. They adopted population control as their main cause.
