A baby graveyard is being built in New Orleans, and it’s quite an expensive one too. Who’s building it? None other than Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in America.
The facility is costing 4.2 million dollars, and the advertisements for this monstrous tomb is amounting to somewhere deep within the six-figure range. In New Orleans, you can’t turn on the radio, open your mailbox, or visit popular websites like Yahoo.com, without hearing or seeing Planned Parenthood’s rhetoric. They’ve infiltrated the city with lies about their state of the art “health clinic”, which allegedly will provide wellness exams, family planning services, and breast cancer screenings. However, their ads fail to mention one important detail about their new center; they are going to sell abortion.
In fact, conservative estimates show that if Planned Parenthood performs abortions two days a week at their new facility; in a year’s time, they could perform 2,880 abortions, nearly doubling the abortion rate in Orleans Parish. This will also give Planned Parenthood over one million dollars in annual abortion income.
Unfortunately, you won’t find out these details by visiting Planned Parenthood’s website or by listening to their radio ads in New Orleans. As a matter of fact, if one doesn’t know better, Planned Parenthood appears to be pretty impressive all around. But when you look past their bright colored online ads and mailers with images of happy people, the truth emerges.
In 2012, Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions, raking in 1.2 billion dollars in net assets, of which almost half came from our tax dollars. Their breast cancer screenings dropped by 14% and their prenatal services by 32%. Also, the “options” Planned Parenthood supposedly offers to pregnant women, don’t really exist. If they did exist, why is it that for every one-adoption referral they facilitate, they perform 149 abortions?
The statistics are clear: Planned Parenthood is primarily interested in selling more abortion. They will do whatever it takes to do so, even if it means confusing the public and lying about their organization.
But, thankfully, not everyone is buying their propaganda. In 2013, Louisiana Right to Life launched a campaign exposing Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, and in January the Archbishop of New Orleans, Gregory Aymond, wrote a letter urging people to stand for a peaceful New Orleans, not one with more abortion. He said that the Archdiocese would not cooperate with the evil that takes place at Planned Parenthood in any way.
“We cannot be silent in view of the grave injustice presented by the abortions that will be performed at the proposed Planned Parenthood facility. The archdiocese is obliged to remind every person and organization involved in the acquisition, preparation and construction of this or any abortion facility that they are cooperating with the evil that will take place there. For this reason, the archdiocese, including its churches, schools, apartments for the elderly and nursing homes, will strive in its privately funded work not to enter into business relationships with any person or organization that participates in actions that are essential to making this abortion facility a reality.”
Now, businesses are saying no to Planned Parenthood. Peter Finney, the editor of the Clarion Herald, the paper for the Archdiocese of New Orleans, wrote an article about a man named Brother Frommeyer, who, after realizing his business was serving Planned Parenthood, withdrew from their contract agreement.
“After finishing up at LSU, Brother joined River Parish Disposal full time and is no vice president. Any business, especially the trash-hauling business, is relationships. So when Brother received a phone call from a contractor to handle the construction debris at a medical center being built on South Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans, it was an easy to say yes to someone for whom he had worked previously.
All Brother’s employees had to do was drop off a large debris container and haul it away every few days or so. For a few months work, it was probably a $2,000 job. It was easy work. Then, all of a sudden, the emails started coming in. First, a trickle and then a fire hose. The emails informed Brother that the job site was the future home of Planned Parenthood Gulf South’s regional abortion clinic.
All of a sudden, Brother discovered the facts: his family-owned company, which includes several relatives, was hauling trash at what could become the largest tomb for the unborn in the state of Louisiana.”
“Brother, a Catholic, also knew something else. He was not going to facilitate abortion in any way. He had to get out, ” Finney concluded. Brother then approached the contractor and ended his contract servicing Planned Parenthood.
