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 keep their positive image going.
Yet, Planned Parenthood preys off young girls in crisis, locating right near our high schools and college campuses, telling them 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.
While non-Planned Parenthood abortion facilities across the nation continue to close, Planned Parenthood had a $98.5 million profit in 2013-2104 and gets over 46% of it's revenue from taxpayer dollars.
Planned Parenthood espouses the slogan “Safe, Legal and Rare” yet they have quotas for the number of abortions performed at their clinics.
And this past summer, Planned Parenthood top-level executives were caught on tape casually discussing the harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies.
So, how do we speed up the end of Planned Parenthood? How do we get 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 lowest 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, even though there are still dangerous side effects like death. Should something go wrong though, they’ll then offer you those same hormones in massive doses (the “morning after pill” which can cause early abortions), claim it’s perfectly safe, and hope you won’t notice they’re contradicting themselves.
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). In 2016, PP performed 82 abortions for every 1 adoption referral and has now mandated that every affiliate performs abortions.
PLAN $$$: Money, money, money. According to Guttmacher Institute (Planned Parenthood’s research arm), the median cost of an abortion is $451. This means PP made over $144 million in revenue from the 321,384 abortions they performed in 2016. For years, Planned Parenthood officials, staff, and surrogates have repeatedly promoted false information about the services they offer (falsely claiming they provide mammograms, etc) and the uniqueness of their work to convince politicians to give them $543.7 million in taxpayer funding just in the 2016-2017 fiscal year 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.
