Planned Parenthood overview

Here are some facts about Planned Parenthood, any one of which should render them ineligible for any government funding, let alone why the leaders should be jailed.

1. They crush and dismember innocent but unwanted human beings for a living.  Abortion is not health care.  That is their primary revenue source, but even if it wasn’t that would be all you need to know.

2. They have been caught countless times, both on audio and on video, hiding statutory rape.  That alone should result in them being not only being de-funded but put out of business.  Businesses who commit serial felonies don’t get to point to other (alleged) good things they do to avoid responsibility.

See Planned Parenthood Never Told Parents of Abortion on Raped 12-Year-Old for an example.  They will kill your grandchild, perform an incredibly serious surgery on your daughter and protect her rapist — for a fee.  Oh, and using your taxes.  It is so sad that false teachers support them and claim Jesus’ support for it.  Such blasphemy!

3. They have been caught many times hiding sex trafficking, which includes victims of human trafficking.

4. Their CEO falsely claimed that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms and that a loss of Federal funding would end these.  How many CEOs don’t know what services their organization provides?  Was this incompetence or a deliberate lie about a highly emotional, most-favored-disease issue to sustain public funding for her organization?  Why hasn’t she or the mainstream media highlighted and corrected this error?

5. Planned Parenthood is not the only provider of these non-abortion services.  If taxpayer funding of PP ended these services could easily be provided elsewhere – preferably somewhere that doesn’t kill humans beings, hide statutory rape, hide sex traffickers / human traffickers, etc.

6. According to PP’s own research arm, 54% of abortions are performed on women who were on birth control.  Their business model is not working to prevent pregnancies, it is working to generate abortions.  That statistic exposes the lie that more birth control distribution will reduce abortions.  PP wants to reduce abortions in the same way McDonald’s wants to sell less hamburgers.

7. Margaret Sanger, PP’s founder, was a racist eugenicist.  Some of her quotes are here.

8. Planned Parenthood targets minorities and is the largest provider of abortions in the U.S.  Abortion rates for blacks are 3x that of whites and the rate for HIspanics is 2x that of whites.  Margaret’s dream lives on.

9. They aggressively promote their worldview to teens, encouraging them to ignore their parents and their religion, via their public school lessons and their youth website, Teenwire. They put up billboards telling kids that “Getting it on is free.”  They discourage parents from viewing it, of course. You can find lots of valuable advice [sarcasm intended], like the tidbit from a 14-year-old girl who said that kids shouldn’t have sex until they are mature enough to know how to use a condom and their official advice that, “Hooking up is only one way to get close to someone.” They regularly promote anal sex as a good way to avoid pregnancy (technically true, though it won’t prevent disease transmission and is not advice most people want their kids to hear).

It follows the same philosophy they use in the classroom, which is to steer kids away from parental authority and to make decisions about sexuality on their own. They don’t offer any limits to children, other than telling them that the kids should decide when they are “ready.” They encourage them to experiment with sex and their sexual orientation.

Most of the offenses are too perverse to list on this blog, but here is a sample of how they encourage kids to ignore their parents and their religion (from the Canada site; the link to the original post from Dawn Eden’s site is broken):

Maybe your religion or parents are influencing your decision. Take control. Remind yourself that what you do is always a choice. You choose whether to follow the values of your religion. You choose whether to be honest with your parents. They may not be easy choices, and others may not agree with the choices you make. But they are still YOUR choices and they should be based on what’s important to you.

10. Planned Parent used to claim that “An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun.” At least that was their view in this 1964 advertisement. Did they learn anything about science in the few years after that when they changed their minds? Of course not. Science couldn’t be more clear: A new human being is created at conception.  Planned Parenthood is about making money off abortions and about advancing their perverse ideology with your money.

Do not miss this video, but don’t let your kids watch it, either:

11. PP has not accounted for millions of dollars given to them.

12. If PP’s supporters care so much for these non-abortion services, why don’t they open their own wallets and give?  There are more crisis pregnancy centers than abortion clinics, and nearly all run with no government funding (the center where I’m a volunteer and board member refuses any government funds).  It doesn’t seem very pro-choice to force people to fund the array of perversions, immorality and broken laws we see with Planned Parenthood.

13. PP doesn’t pay these salaries based on how many condoms they give away, they get it from performing 329,455 abortions. (P.S. they are the 1%.).  Note that these have gone up substantially in recent years.

President Cecile Richards $353,819
Chief Operating Officer Maryana Iskander $288,886
Chief Financial Officer Maria Acosta $263,443
VP of Medical Affairs Vanessa Cullins $257,115
VP of General Counsel Barbara Otten $251,379
VP of Public Policy Laurie Rubiner $248,438
VP of Operations Karen Ruffatto $247,932
VP of Affiliates Lisa David $245,322

14.  PP encourages gender-selection abortions.

15.  PP encourages Medicaid fraud.  More here and here.

16. PP encourages their employees to lie about breaking laws but will not protect them.

17. They aggressively promote filth to youth — they assume that every relationship will involve sex and that you will go from one sex relationship to another.  They pretend that people will actually follow their advice (Yeah, sure, people will always use condoms for oral sex.  Because gays would never rebel and break any safe sex rules!)

18. Planned Parenthood lies about its botched abortions.  Apparently and organization that kills unwanted human beings and perverts the minds of kids for a living doesn’t mind lying to help their business.

Our investigation exposes not only how unsafe Planned Parenthood clinics can be for women, but also how dishonest and untrustworthy Planned Parenthood is to the very women it claims to defend,” says Rose. “How shameful that two months after their clinic botched an abortion that took the life of 24-year old Tonya Reaves and her pre-born baby, Planned Parenthood lies to the public and pretends nothing happened. When it comes to the lethal dangers of its billion-dollar abortion business, no lie is too audacious for Planned Parenthood.

19. They would rather go back on their word and destroy a breast cancer charity than part ways amicably.

20. They try to deceive people by saying that only 3% of their business is abortion-related.  But 10% of the clients get abortion, and each one gets lots of services.  And even if 0.000001% of their business was from killing unwanted human beings they should be shut down.  A full analysis is here.

21. Former Planned Parenthood worker: ‘It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work’ – Your tax dollars at work.

Marianne Anderson is a nurse who assisted Planned Parenthood abortionists by partially sedating women who paid extra for that luxury.  She told The Criterion newspaper that she saw many women pressured into abortions they did not want, including minor girls.

“One young girl came in with her mom,” Anderson told the paper.  “She was about 16. Her mom had made the appointment. That’s not supposed to be how it works. It’s supposed to only be the patient who makes the appointment. I checked her in, and she thought she was there for a prenatal checkup. The mom was pushing it. She blindsided her own daughter.”

Another time, said Anderson, “This guy brought in a Korean girl. I had no doubt in my mind this girl was a sex slave. This guy would not leave her side. They could barely communicate. He wanted to make all the arrangements.  During the ultrasound, she told one of the nurses that there were lots of girls in the house, and that the man hits them. She never came back for the abortion. I always wondered what happened to her. One of my co-workers said, ‘You’re better off to just let it go.’”

When women cried during the abortion procedure, Anderson said, abortionist Michael King would shame them. “These girls would start crying on the table, and Dr. King would say, ‘Now you chose to be here. Sit still. I don’t have time for this.’”

“One doctor, when he was in the POC [products of conception] room, would talk to the aborted baby while looking for all the parts. ‘Come on, little arm, I know you’re here! Now you stop hiding from me!’ It just made me sick to my stomach,” Anderson said. “The sound the suction machine made when it turned on still haunts me.”

Anderson told The Criterion she started working at the facility because she believed that as long as women were having abortions, they should be safe about it.

But Anderson quickly abandoned her illusions of safety once she began work at Planned Parenthood.  “I started feeling uneasy working there when people came from national in New York City to teach us the conscious sedation process,” Anderson told the paper.  “It was disgusting. These two ladies had this chant they would do: ‘Abortion all the time!’ I thought, ‘I’ve got to get out of here.’ That was about six to eight months after I started.”

Anderson said the overall experience of working for Planned Parenthood was “absolutely miserable.”

“It was a money-grubbing, evil, very sad, sad place to work,” she said. “I was always getting in trouble for talking too long to the girls, asking if they were sure they wanted to do this.”

22.  They market bondage, discipline/domination, sadism and masochism to teens.

23. They tell teens that the number of sex partners they have is irrelevant. See Planned Parenthood Tells Teens Nothing Wrong With Multiple Sex Partners

24. Now they have been caught lying about doing prenatal care. 92 out of 97 affiliates contacted admitted they do nothing of the sort.

  1. I have been preaching this history of PP for decades and it seems that fewer and fewer people really care. Apathy is a major problem in America, and when it is demonstrated by Christians it gets my dander up.


    1. I agree Neil. I think very few people care very much at all. But why should they? How do people even know about this? Very few people make the effort to inform themselves. There was a time, not an awful long time ago, when the Church would have risen to the occasion because the pulpits would have risen to the occasion. That only a few really care, especially in light of the thousands of churches across America, is more of a testimony to the lousy condition of our churches than it is of the more lousy (and I’m not even sure about that) condition of our society.


  2. Planned Parenthood is not the only provider of these non-abortion services. If taxpayer funding of PP ended these services could easily be provided elsewhere –

    It would probably be wise to withdraw funds in stages, making sure every health service is definitely available through another provider before shutting PP clinics down.

    I personally think it would in fact be a good idea to completely separate birth control and health services provision from any association with abortion providers. That way you make sure that those who feel strongly against abortion won’t have even the hint of feeling they indirectly support what they oppose if they go to a clinic to get their pills or condoms. There should be a wide and clear distinction between the one service and the other, and that’s one thing I think is a problem with PP. They’re just so associated with abortion in many minds.

    Once the change occurs sensibly, I can’t see any reason why pregnancy prevention and women’s health services shouldn’t be taken out from under the PP umbrella. At the moment the abortion services are run completely separately, in separate buildings. Could it be that making a change could come down to just changing the name boards on the existing birth control/women’s health clinics, reprinting information leaflets with a different name at the top? If it’s already separate, surely that shouldn’t be as much of a problem as opening completely new clinics in different places?

    Either way, as I said, I think it would be good if the two are completely separated. It’s not fair on pro-life supporters to feel they associate with an abortion provider when they go for a pap smear.


    1. Hi Nadia — I agree with your points. I used to have this conversation with an acquaintance who was an escort (aka Deathscort) at PP (believe it or not we actually had a very cordial relationship). He trotted out their sound bites, but at the core it couldn’t be more obvious. PP knows that would settle the funding debate but they have no desire to split them. One side of the business supports the other. They have too much to lose if it is split.


  3. The most bizarre thing is all the pro-PP comments along the lines of, “But what about the good things they do . . .” Just state the whole sentence: “When PP isn’t busy hiding statutory rape and sex trafficking, killing the unborn and perverting the minds of your teens, they do some (allegedly) helpful things for women.” Gee, when you put it like that . . .


  4. No matter what services PP provides outside of abortion and their support of illegal activities, there is no Constitutional support for federal funding. There is nothing they provide that can’t be had elsewhere, and that is the issue. The Republicans folded like a cheap suit.


    1. Yep. I think they knew they’d lose but used it to get some other benefits. Hope they don’t give up. Elections matter. Let’s take back the Senate then get rid of PP, NPR, etc.


      1. I don’t know what you mean by “click and clack,” but yes, I do hate them that much.

        Seriously, I never said to get rid of NPR. I said to remove its funding. Two things seem obvious:

        1. We don’t need the gov’t funding the media.
        2. If you love them and I can’t stand them, it is pretty obvious that they are biased.


      2. they don’t give out Peabody Awards (recognizing the most outstanding achievements radio and television) for bias reporting, NPR won 3 this year and 56 total. but who’s counting?
        and if the greeks, romans and every government since the dawn of time has funded arts and culture, why not the good old USA?


  5. The most bizarre thing is all the pro-PP comments along the lines of, “But what about the good things they do . . .”

    I’ve never understood that argument. That’s a rebuttal to criticism of a group whose wrongdoing is not evil – it’s a statement of the fact that we all screw up – but when you’re dealing with something that’s evil, then all it does is to justify that evil.

    That’s like saying, “Who cares if that person raped a kid – he donated a lot of money to charity”. Obviously absurd, but the same thing.


  6. Neil,
    I can empathize with your enthusiastic zeal on the issue of abortion and Planned Parenthood’s involvement. It is my belief that your arguments would carry more weight if they were based on facts and not other blog or personal views.

    1. “They crush and dismember innocent human beings for a living”. It would be more accurate to say that they scrape, vacuum, crush and dismember innocent zygotes, embryos and fetuses as part of their income.

    2. Give me links to reputable journals to support your clams. “caught countless times” how many? Give me a number.

    3. If even one of your claims is false or misleading, all of your claims by association become false, weather it is or not. (ie. Politfact debunked the money issue = pant on fire).

    If you truly are in the right then it becomes unnecessary to use inflammatory, false or misleading statements to support your views.

    I am not debating your views or ideology, just your style.


    1. “1. “They crush and dismember innocent human beings for a living”. It would be more accurate to say that they scrape, vacuum, crush and dismember innocent zygotes, embryos and fetuses as part of their income.”

      Wrong. Scientific fact: The unborn are human beings. Check out any mainstream embryology textbook — . Yes, they are fetuses. What kind? Human.

      Crush and dismember are highly accurate terms:

      “2. Give me links to reputable journals to support your clams. “caught countless times” how many? Give me a number.”

      Cute. Click the links and count yourself. Listen to all the audios and all the videos. PP never denied that it was their employees, they just tried to act like they were rogues. I believe the audios covered 90% of PP clinics.

      “3. If even one of your claims is false or misleading, all of your claims by association become false, weather it is or not. (ie. Politfact debunked the money issue = pant on fire). ”

      Do you use the same standards for your lefty sources? And I trust my sources more than yours, for good reasons. Yours have convinced you that abortions don’t kill innocent human beings. That is an epic FAIL both scientifically and logically. Species reproduce after their own kind. Did you think those were canine fetuses being destroyed? (Too bad they aren’t, because lefties would go insane if you aborted a dog.)

      “4. If you truly are in the right then it becomes unnecessary to use inflammatory, false or misleading statements to support your views.”

      John, your moral compass may be permanently destroyed. It is amazing the lengths you will go to in propping up evil organizations like PP.


  7. 10 min. to write a response. That is quick.

    1. A human being is not a human fetus.
    2. Watched the same video three times and then gave up.
    3. GAO is my “lefty” source.
    4. ” I am not debating your views or ideology, just your style.”


    1. 1. You are in conflict with mainstream science and basic logic. And you misstated it: the claim is that a human fetus is a human being — that is, a human being at a particular stage of development. Your view would be like saying, “That isn’t a human being, it is a human toddler.”. It is both.

  8. A fetus (pronounced /ˈfiːtəs/; also spelled foetus, fœtus, faetus, or fætus, see below) is a developing mammal or other viviparous vertebrate after the embryonic stage and before birth.

    Are you a human being or are you a human fetus?

    This is fun but it is off topic (my topic anyway). ” I am not debating your views or ideology, just your style.” Reread my original comment and call me… if your not afraid of constructive criticism.


    1. fetus – meaning offspring, bringing forth, hatching of young – is now used for any critter besides human. But, since our discussion is about the human fetus and not any other type, context says that a human fetus is a baby in early stages. The stage of life does not determine its value.


    2. “Are you a human being or are you a human fetus?”

      I am a human adult, which is a human being. I used to be a human fetus, and was also a human being at that time. Try looking up “being.”

  9. John, per our phone call, I officially agreed with your points about style and sources. Your turn: Here’s the Bible reading link you wanted to sign up for: . They have lots of options. I recommend trying the “New Testament in a year.” That’s about a chapter a day. I’ll take a shot at whatever questions you have.


  10. I am been following the recent activites concerning Penn State staff who failed to report Child abuse to the authorities. The media really stepped up to the plate to mention this awful tradgedy against young boys. Ironically they didn’t mention all the good Joe Paterno has done for the University and for young men all these years, Just on how he didn’t care about these young boys.

    What if the media used the same logic against Planned Parenthood. They keep mentioning about all the good they are doing, but like Penn State they should keep aware of the offenses against young girls, especially when it involves statutory rape.


  11. United Methodism’s lobby office in Washington, D.C. (the Board of Church and Society) is a member of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, which defends abortion on demand, including even the heinous late-term partial-birth abortion procedure. The United Methodist Women’s Division based in New York City also belongs to this pro-abortion coalition.
    Many in our UMC grieve over the Church’s continued support of abortion!
    This is the current United Methodist Churches position:

    We require Health Care when our health is compromised.
    Take care of him; and when I come back, I will repay you whatever more you spend.
    Luke 10, NRSV
    Social Principles, ¶ 162T.
    The nature of health care has changed substantially since biblical times, but the importance of health care has remained the same. Consistent with the Social Principles and Book of Resolutions, the General Board of Church and Society advocates for health care as a human right that must be made available to all.
    From our earliest days United Methodists have believed that providing health care to others is an important duty of Christians. John Wesley found ways to offer medical services at no cost to the poor in London. The first Methodist Social Creed (adopted in 1908) urged working conditions to safeguard the health of workers and community.

    Biblical and Theological Context
    The United Methodist Church in its Social Principles regards healthcare as a basic human right, as well as a responsibility both public and private. As the position of the Church elaborates: “We encourage individuals to pursue a healthy lifestyle and … also recognize the role of governments in ensuring the each individual has access to those elements necessary to good health.” (Social Principles, ¶162T) The United Methodist Church’s General Conference has also passed a number of health-related resolutions elaborating on the importance of health care for all, and some of the significant issues that keep us from realizing this principle. Healthcare in the United States is beset by three central interlocking problems – cost, access, and quality. Because of deficiencies in the current system, Americans as a whole receive poorer health care than other industrial countries that spend only half as much. The most visible problem is the 46 million Americans who have no health insurance.
    Scripture references: Luke 10:25-35 and Ezekiel 34:4.
    ADOPTED 2004
    WHEREAS, The United Methodist Church was a founding member of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice in 1973, and

    WHEREAS, the General Board of Church and Society and the Women’s Division of the General Board of Global Ministries are currently members of the Religious Coalition, along with national organizations from 14 denominations, including the Episcopal Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), United Church of Christ, Unitarian Universalism, Reform and Conservative Judaism, and

    WHEREAS, these Coalition member organizations hold a wide variety of views regarding policies relating to specific issues of reproductive choice such as when life and personhood begins but, nevertheless, share common religious values, have official pro-choice policies, and are committed to working together to ensure reproductive choice for all persons through the moral power of religious communities, and

    WHEREAS, the Religious Coalition supports the right of all persons to have access to a wide range of reproductive health services including sexuality education, family planning services, contraception, abortion services, affordable and quality health and child care, and

    WHEREAS, the Religious Coalition’s All Options Clergy Counseling program trains clergy of many faiths to assist women in discerning the course of action that they believe is best in a case of unintended pregnancy, and

    WHEREAS, internationally, the Religious Coalition is an accredited non-governmental organization with the United Nations Department of Public Information which supports international family planning services in such areas as South Africa where the Coalition works with churches on HIV/AIDS education and prevention, and

    WHEREAS, the Coalition’s efforts help counter attempts to enact restrictive legislation that would impose specific religious views about abortion and reproductive health on persons of all faiths, and

    WHEREAS, factions within the United Methodist Church whose stated goal is to have the General Conference go on record in opposition to all abortions regardless of the reason are working towards the goal of severing all United Methodist ties with the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice;

    Therefore, be it resolved, that the United Methodist 2004 General Conference go on record in support of the work of the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice, and

    Be it further resolved, that the 2004 General Conference affirm the continued membership of the General Board of Church and Society and the Women’s Division of the General Board of Global Ministries in the Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice.


    1. Yes, the Methodist position on abortion is super-creepy and inconsistent. The RCRC is all about baby killing, and it is sick joke that the Methodists rationalize supporting them. I’m so glad I left that denomination. My only regret is not doing it sooner.
