“Planned Parenthood is an amazing organization that directly serves many of the groups impacted by President Trump’s recent executive orders,” the Planned Parenthood of Illinois Bake Sale website stated.
However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Planned Parenthood, the multi-million dollar organization being funded by a relatively small grassroots bake sale, is responsible for at least 6,803,782 abortion deaths of children since Roe vs. Wade. This is roughly analogous to the combined populations of Chicago and Los Angeles, per 2015 U.S. Census Bureau data, CNS News reported.
According to annual reports from Planned Parenthood from 1978 to 2015, abortion numbers “range from 70,000 abortions in the first annual report (from 1978) to 323,999 abortions reported in the 2014-15 annual report, the latest available,” CNS continued.
“Every year, Planned Parenthood receives millions in tax dollars through Title X Family Planning appropriations,” CNS News reported. “Its latest report shows that 43 percent of Planned Parenthood’s revenues come from government health services grants and reimbursements (state and federal) for a total of $553.7 million in 2014.”
The Planned Parenthood of Illinois Bake Sale website offered more insight into the baking fundraiser.
“Not only do they [Planned Parenthood] serve women seeking a variety of sexual health needs, they are staunchly pro-immigrant and serve people who are undocumented, people who often have nowhere else to turn,” the website said. “We chose them because of the broad range of services they provide, the fact that they actively support immigrants, and because the organization and the work they do is under attack by our current administration.”
It seems hypocritical to support opening American borders to all when this same abortion group denies entry into the world for hundreds of thousands of babies, immigrants or otherwise, just because they happen to be unborn.
Planned Parenthood has also been receiving a lot of attention in recent days for deceptive marketing of prenatal services. The abortion group has claimed in the past that it needs taxpayer funding to provide services like prenatal care, but a new Live Action investigation found that it rarely offers this service. Its main business is abortions.
The undercover video project by Live Action found that 92 of the 97 Planned Parenthood facilities that it called or visited did not offer any prenatal services, despite advertising otherwise. Since then, many of the abortion group’s facilities have scrubbed the phrase “prenatal” care from their websites.
U.S. Senators introduced a federal bill to defund the abortion business last week.
Recent polls also indicate Americans support the defunding efforts. New polling found 56 percent of Americans in battleground states want Planned Parenthood defunded.
