Planned Parenthood – the lies-based business model

The 2011 fiscal year budget battle in Congress continues to spotlight the fight to defund Planned Parenthood. This after revelations by activists in the struggle to end abortion have dragged the Planned Parenthood cockroaches into the glare of the noonday sun.

The former director of the Bryan, Texas clinic, Abby Johnson, has summarized the Planned Parenthood business model as a money-grubbing operation, and exposed the truth that the so-called benefit to women’s health is a subterfuge to get the hard-earned dollars of working Americans. This in order to profit to the tune of tens of millions of dollars per year, while Planned Parenthood touts itself as a nonprofit.

Planned Parenthood’s bottom line is numbers. And, with abortion as its primary money-maker, that means implementing a quota. I know this is true because I worked at one of their Texas clinics for 8 years, two as the clinic director.

Pretty disgusting thought, that. We have seen how implementing a quota for abortions plays out in day-to-day operations at the clinics, by the shocking number of abortions performed since the implementation of Roe v. Wade.

I will highlight just a few of Ms Johnson’s points here:

Planned Parenthood and its political allies have sworn up and down that taxpayer dollars do not [go] to pay for abortion. But of course they do. Planned Parenthood gets one-third of its entire budget from taxpayer funding and performed more than 650,000 abortions between 2008 and 2009.

There is absolutely no sequestration of funds targeted for abortion. None. It all gets mixed together into one pot.

Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortions make up just 3 percent of its services is also a gimmick. That number is actually closer to 12 percent, but strategically skewed by unbundling family planning services so that each patient shows anywhere from five to 20 “visits” per appointment (i.e., 12 packs of birth control equals 12 visits) and doing the opposite with abortion visits, bundling them together so that each appointment equals one visit. The resulting difference between family planning and abortion “visits” is striking.

Lies and statistics that lie. And abortionists who make money off of a barbaric practice by lying to Congress and other Americans.

Planned Parenthood has found other ways to increase revenue at the expense of women’s safety. Abortion consultations are now often done without a doctor in the room through online “telemedicine.” Abortion is a severely traumatic and potentially dangerous procedure. Even as Planned Parenthood’s 2008 Employee of the Year, I saw this aggressive push toward more “efficient” telemedicine as risky.

Telemedicine surely isn’t the way to safeguard women’s health and wellbeing. It is a way to spend less money while taking more lives more efficiently.

With the Continuing Resolution battle before us, we can, at very least, stop making taxpayers perpetuate a culture that puts profit margins before women’s safety. Congress has and must seize the opportunity to stop directing hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to recipients who deliberately deceive the public and violate federal law.

Yes, this criminal enterprise must be starved.

There is more in the article to admonish anyone who thinks Planned Parenthood deserves tax-payer money, much more–opposing laws that require sonograms before aborting, abetting alleged sex traffickers and opposing laws to protect minors.

Untold millions of lives have been taken already in the name of reproductive rights. Please, Congress, remove this blight from our nation.

  1. Planned Parenthood…a dirty little secret of genocide.

    genocide as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;

  2. Dear Lord. These people are evil. I shudder when I think of the price that has been paid by their acts and the indifference and complicity of the American people.

    If God is just rather than merciful, we’ve got trouble.

  3. PP is a sick, sick organization. They prey on the weak, vulnerable, young and poor.

    If we, the taxpayers, fund 1/3 of Planned Parenthood’s budget, it doesn’t pass the smell test to say those funds don’t end up either directly funding abortions or, at a minimum, encouraging, promoting and coercing abortions.

    • From the evidence presented, I believe we are all paying for this continued assault on life. Of course PP has to lie and deceive. Even they, as evil as they are, know that it is not acceptable, at the minimum, and some of them may even know that it is evil.

      I’m happy you have joined UP–I linked to your very well-done story above.

      Thank you to all the wonderful people who are on the front lines, praying and working to provide a path to life for so many unborn infants.

      • Thank you for your kind words RH. 🙂

        I’m so happy to have found a home here at UP. I enjoy very much reading dispatches from all of you patriots!

        Your comment about PP having to lie because even they know the evil of it, reminded me of something I heard once, if abortion is so awesome that it must be protected as a “right” then why do so many pro-aborts, like Obama himself, say it has to be rare? What’s wrong with it that it must be rare? I love asking a pro-choicer that…

        • His horrible statement, that he wouldn’t want his “daughters to be punished with a baby” was a good indicator that our president is cavalier about the question. Then there is his record on infanticide as a voting senator in the Illinois General Assembly.

          The work of educating the public will take long, but we will prevail with God’s help. And you are so right that local grassroots activity, in our homes and in our neighborhoods must make the difference.

          • Ah, yes, I had forgotten he made that “punished” comment. I also recall he said that the question of when life begins is above his pay grade. At to that I say, if we aren’t sure when life begins, shouldn’t we give the benefit of the doubt to preserving life? One of the best pro-life apologetics book out there, “Pro-Life Answers to Pro-Choice Arguments”, responds to that question this way: If you are driving at night and you think the dark figure ahead may be a child but it may just be the shadow of a tree, do you drive into it, or do you put on the brakes?
