Isn’t it time we start holding our government accountable? How are they spending our money? One of the big recipients of taxpayer funds is none other than Planned Parenthood. While I personally am staunchly pro-life, even if you are not, you should be concerned with how your money is being spent. For fiscal year 2012, Planned Parenthood reported receiving $542 million dollars in federal funding. Under the guise of women’s reproductive health services, Planned Parenthood is so much more, yet so much less than they actually are. So how did they spend this money? If you aren’t outraged yet, you’re about to be…

Abortions

Planned Parenthood reported a record year for abortions last year with 333,964 abortions performed for the fiscal year. That works out to be about 1 every 94 seconds. A recent rise in federal funds is most likely at the source of the increase in abortions, even though federal funds are not supposed to go towards abortions. Planned Parenthood only provided 2,300 adoption referrals. This means that less than ONE PERCENT (.69%) of women counseled were even given adoption options or referrals. I have my own conclusions as to why this is; you can draw your own…but basically just follow the money/funding.

The Mammogram Fallacy

Planned Parenthood touts that 12% of their services are to provide cancer screenings and prevention. While this seems noble, is it the whole truth? Not even close. Mammograms are a vital way to determine if a woman has breast cancer therefore an important screening tool. President Obama himself even proclaimed that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms to women in need. This is false. Completely false. Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms at all; they do provide referrals to clinics where mammograms can be done. Why build up a service that they don’t even offer?

Black Friday Discounts and Mother’s Day Donations

A South Florida Planned Parenthood did the unthinkable when they actually offered coupons on Black Friday for discounts on their services, including office visits, emergency contraception, and even abortions. And then there was the solicitation for Mother’s Day donations–because nothing says, “I love you, Mom” more than a donation in her name to an organization that aborts one baby every minute and a half! Classy promotions from a less-than-reputable organization.

Unreported Child Rape

There have been many allegations of Planned Parenthood agencies failing to report child rape and other sex crimes against women. The most notable of these was a girl in Ohio who was sexually abused by her father from the age of 13. When she became pregnant at 16, her father took her to a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion.  The girl told workers that she was being forced to have sex, yet clinic workers failed to report it to the authorities. Planned Parenthood was forced to settle the suit because they had failed to comply with mandatory reporting procedures. “What this young woman went through as a young teenager is horrifying enough,” said Dana Cody (Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation) “She was forcibly raped, impregnated, forced to have an abortion, and then sent back for more abuse – a tragedy that Planned Parenthood could have prevented by simply complying with the law.”

In another case, a 14-year-old girl was impregnated by her 22-year-old soccer coach.  This, too, went unreported. Clinic workers allowed her coach to sign for her abortion and violated the state’s 24-hour waiting period. These are just two of many, many cases where statutory rape and sexual abuse are not only not reported, but also in most cases covered up, thus allowing it to continue. The Mona Lisa Project provides video documentation of instances where Planned Parenthood has been caught on tape covering up sexual abuse and other crimes. How is this good for a woman’s (or girl’s) health?

Teaching Girls how to Cover Bruises from Abuse with Makeup

Yeah, that’s right, you did indeed read the subheading correctly. While Planned Parenthood is not responsible for creating the video titled “How to look your best the morning after” itself, they are responsible for promoting it on their “Info for Teens” Facebook page. This does not promote a clear message that girls and women should respect themselves and keep themselves safe at all. It certainly does not promote women’s health in any way whatsoever.

Keeping in mind that these examples are only barely scratching the surface, shouldn’t it make you want to require a higher standard of accountability? Planned Parenthood has been exposed and their agenda should be clear to anyone who actually looks at it. The organization certainly does serve some needs for women in need of health services. The bad and the corruption, however, outweigh any good that they have done. Shouldn’t an organization receiving millions of our tax dollars be accountable for how they utilize that money? You decide.

    Planned Parenthood should have all of its funding pulled. What they do is evil. Thanks for posting this info.

      PP, is nothing more then a legal baby killing machine. Stop the madness, and the funding.

    Please watch this short video – http://video.foxnews.com/v/2090789965001/congresswoman-reintroduces-bill-to-defund-planned-parenthood/?playlist_id=903226511001

    Congressman Marsha Blackburn has reintroduced a bill to defund Planned Parenthood. Pay particular attention to what Congresswoman Blackburn says at 3:25 – Planned Parenthood is requiring all of their affiliates to do abortion services in 2013.

    Our local PP Clinic does not perform abortions so we are going to be vigilant to see that this does not happen.

    I am 71 and when I was first married, we were probably considered poor by today’s standards and yet, I never went to Planned Parenthood nor knew anyone that did.

    Hey, Polit-i-Chicks. Could you find a way to get charges of RICO filed against them. INformation and civil suits are good. But somewhere,we should be doing what the ACLU does but only on the conservative side.

    Anyone that supports or works for planned parenthood should burn in HELL!

    • caskinner

      They probably will.

    I agree with “caskinner” that Planned Parenthood is really nothing more than a high class abortion mill “industry” whose primary concern is money! Remember? “Money is the root of all kinds of evil.” These people are quite simply murderers for hire. Because of the gross immorality in our society, young girls get pregnant so they hire Planned Parenthood to “handle” their problem often without the parents consent. Since the governent is corrupt and wants to decrease the number of people who will “need” entitlements later (thus less money for the politicians) it is cheaper to pay PP to help keep the population down. But, PP’s mission is to keep the people in their immoral life style by assuring them that they will always be there “to help!” To all of you who keep praying 2 Chronicles 7:14: Do you think Planned Parenthood will “repent and turn from their wicked ways”? I don’t think so! Therefore, I don’t think God “will hear from heaven and forgive them and heal our land”! Especially since we have officially turned away from Him as a nation!

      The people behind Planned Parenthood have sold their soul to the devil for money. Great comment downs1.

    Planned parent hood is a joke it is nothing more nor less than a clinic that perform murder
    on the unborn and gets paid for it. They do not parent counceling except to convince
    women to kill their babies. If you break it down by racial lines, age etc you would be
    suprises as to who kills the most babies. The seem to be targeting the low income areas
    and minorities in their death camps. These people are not better than the Death Camps
    of Germany during WW II. How any one in the Government can support thier continuation
    escapes me. Have to Godless taken over our nation or is it just the politicans who have
    no soul?

    planned parenthood is anything but planned parenthood, it is rather a planned abortion organzation, it does not apparently make any plans for adoption, or a plan for “later parenthood, where the birthed is placed in a foster care home, until the birthing mother can regain the parental status. rather they are just a “killing” organization.
