Planned Parenthood has not had a lot of success with Twitter lately.
Seeking support through the social media platform, the abortion chain instead has received a lot of backlash, and Friday was no exception.
The hashtag #WhatWomenWantIn4Words was a trending topic on Friday, as Twitter users discussed ways to include “more women at the decision making tables, less domestic violence, an end to the ‘rape culture,’ an end of the gender ‘wage gap,’ and so forth,” according to The Blaze.
Planned Parenthood’s social media team jumped into the discussion with this ironic tweet:
#WhatWomenWantIn4Words → No politicians in healthcare.

A few abortion advocates posted messages of support below the tweet, but hundreds of others called out the abortion chain’s hypocrisy. That same day Planned Parenthood also posted messages on Twitter advocating for more politicians’ involvement in the form of taxpayer funding for its own programs.
So, which does Planned Parenthood want – more government involvement or less? It can’t have it both ways, Twitter users replied.
If women want government out of their healthcare choices, they must first stop demanding that government pay for those choices. https://t.co/ctrAbvaZYS

Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report shows it received $554.6 million in taxpayer funding, up from $553.7 million the previous year. Its abortion numbers also increased to 328,348, nearly 5,000 more than the previous year.
At the same time, it saw about 100,000 fewer than the year before and about 500,000 fewer than five years ago. Contraception services, which the abortion chain touts as its primary service, also dropped from 2.94 million to 2.8 million over the past two years.
Abortions and the politics surrounding them appear to be the key focus of Planned Parenthood, and Twitter users pointed this out Friday.
During the 2016 election cycle you made $787,000.00 in political contributions……https://t.co/kOmaKWv2LT

Politics aside, one commenter drew people’s attention back to the heart of the issue – the lives of unborn babies and their mothers.
What women want in 4 letters-LOVE. In 4 words-Motherhood is true LOVE. Every argument for abortion robs the mother and child of LOVE.

As the top abortion business in the United States, Planned Parenthood aborts about one-third of all unborn babies in the country, destroying their lives and damaging many of their mothers’. Most women do not want abortions; instead, they feel driven to abort their unborn babies out of desperation or fear. Women want – and should want – something better, and they and their unborn babies deserve so much better than what Planned Parenthood has to offer.
