The Planned Parenthood Project Tour
Here are the facts:
Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion vendor but they NEVER advertise this fact because this generation rejects abortion (polls confirms this). Instead they tell young people about their contraception sales and STD screenings to maintain a positive reputation.
Eve so, Planned Parenthood preys off of young girls in crisis, locating right near our academic institutions, trying to convince pregnant girls that abortion is their only real option in their moment of desperation. According to our own research, 79% of Planned Parenthoods are located within 5 miles of a college campus.
Planned Parenthood espouses the slogan “Safe, Legal and Rare” yet they have quotas for the number of abortions they aim to conduct at their clinics.
And this past summer, top-level Planned Parenthood executives were caught on tape casually discussing the harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies.
Planned Parenthood generated $98.5 million in surplus revenues in FY 2013-14.
So, how do we speed up the demise of Planned Parenthood? How do we guide women facing crisis situations to those who can offer real love and support? We tell young people the truth about Planned Parenthood.
And that’s exactly what the Planned Parenthood Project Tour does.
Planned Parenthood's Plan for You:
PLAN A: Provide poor quality, faulty birth control. In its February 2005 issue of Consumer Reports, the non-profit Consumers Union ranked two of Planned Parenthood’s condom lines the worst-performing out of all the brands that they tested.
PLAN B: Encourage daily hormonal treatment. PP encourages young women to begin a daily regimen of hormonal birth control, and they placate fears about side effects by saying that modern hormonal contraceptives are safer than earlier iterations because they contain smaller amounts of hormones. However, these hormonal contraceptives still pose the risk of dangerous side effects - up to and including death. If something goes wrong for a woman who uses PP's recommended hormonal treatment, they’ll offer that woman those same hormones in much higher doses. For example, they'll provide her the “morning after pill,” an abortifacient which can cause early abortions, claim it’s perfectly safe, and blatantly ignore the risks involved.
PLAN C: Offer deceptive counseling and biased information. If things didn’t go so well with the condoms and birth control, and pregnancy does occur, then Planned Parenthood offers “options counseling” to help decide a course of action. However, dozens of former employees have blown the whistle on the unscrupulous nature of PP’s “options counseling,” acknowledging that it was commonly used to steer women towards abortion (which they profit from) instead of adoption or parenting (which they don’t get paid for). From 2010-2020, PP performed roughly 126 abortions for every 1 adoption referral and has now mandated that every affiliate perform abortions.
PLAN $$$: Money, money, money. According to the Guttmacher Institute (Planned Parenthood’s research arm), the median cost of an abortion is $451. This means PP likely generated over $172 million in revenue from the 383,460 abortions they performed in FY 2019-20. For years, Planned Parenthood officials, staff, and surrogates have repeatedly promoted false information about the services they offer (falsely claiming they provide mammograms, for example.) They also fabricated claims about the uniqueness and supposed importance of their work to convince politicians to give them $616.8 million in taxpayer funding just in FY 2018-19 alone. However, everything PP sells and provides (except abortion) can be found within the nationwide network of 8,000 taxpayer-funded Community Health Centers at universally lower prices.
