Is Planned Parenthood about selling abortions or women’s health care? Well, the CEO of the abortion business, Cecile Richards, cleared that up yesterday aft the grand opening of a new abortion facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.

“We definitely built this so we can provide abortions,” she said yesterday.

Ben Clapper, the head of Louisiana Right to Life, is not surprised that Richards admitted the real modus operandi of the new Planned Parenthood abortion center.

“Almost exactly six years after they purchased the land, they cut the ribbon.  While the building hasn’t opened to clients, it will soon,” he said. “And if there were any doubts about their abortion intentions, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, cleared that up yesterday.”

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately


“For the past few years, no local Planned Parenthood representative had dared to utter words as clear as these. Not only has Planned Parenthood built this facility for abortions, but it has designed it to squeeze every last abortion it can out of the New Orleans market,” Clapper continued. “As its own documents show, Planned Parenthood plans to sell 2,844 abortions on site each year over and above abortions already being performed elsewhere in New Orleans. The most recent numbers have Louisiana’s abortion count at 10,211 a year, but if Planned Parenthood has its way, that number will increase by 28%.”

Fortunately, a new bill the Louisiana governor is expected to sign will cut off taxpayer funding for the abortion company, and others.

“Thankfully, Gov. John Bel Edwards will soon sign into law HB 606, which protects taxpayer dollars from subsidizing any business that performs abortions. But, as Ms. Richards also said, Planned Parenthood is considering taking the law to court. Clearly, Planned Parenthood will take every step necessary to sell abortions on Claiborne Avenue. The story is far from over,” Clapper said.

Louisiana Right to Life is hosting a gathering on Saturday morning, June 11 at 10 AM at the Planned Parenthood building to stand for peace against its abortion business: Nola Needs Peace, Not More Abortion, Rally for Life, Saturday, June 11 at 10 AM  4624 S. Claiborne Ave.
