Texas Heartbeat Law is Saving So Many Babies From Abortion Planned Parenthood Calls it “Devastating”

When your business is to sell abortions and abortions banned, business isn’t good. That’s the problem the Planned Parenthood abortion company is having in the state of Texas, where, as LifeNews reported over a week ago, state health department statistics show thousands of babies being saved from abortion every month.

A new report from the Texas health department confirms the state’s new abortion ban is saving as many as 90 babies from abortions each and every day. With the Texas heartbeat law having been in effect since September 1, that means as many as 13,860 babies have been saved from abortions in Texas.

new report from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) confirms a substantial drop in abortions in September 2021 after implementation of the Texas Heartbeat Act. The state agency reported a total of 2,197 abortions in Texas after the ban took effect, compared to  an astonishing 5,404 abortions committed the month before.

The 2,197 abortions in September represents a 60% decrease in abortions. Before the Texas Heartbeat Act, there were more than 160 abortions committed each day in Texas. In September, this plummeted to around 70 each day.

While most people would think babies being born is a good thing, not Planned Parenthood — which called this good news “devastating.”

Planned Parenthood called the numbers “the very beginning of the devastating impact” of the law.

Leading pro-life groups are elated by the news that more babies will be alive.

“The data confirms that the Texas Heartbeat Act has saved thousands of lives,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “Even greater potential is ahead as we await the Supreme Court’s decision in the Dobbs case, which could restore the right of all states to modernize our laws and protect unborn children and mothers prior to viability. Seventy-one percent of Americans want far greater limits on abortion than the Court’s precedents currently allow. If the Court finally unshackles the people and their elected representatives, as it should, for the first time in generations they will have the opportunity to enact their consensus in the law and save countless little boys and girls waiting to be born.”

But the Planned Parenthood reaction is not surprising given the fact that Planned Parenthood killed 354,000 babies in abortions in the most recent year for which its annual report was available. As LifeNews reported last year, its 2019 annual report shows it aborted over 354,000 babies, an increase of over 9,000 babies killed in abortions compared to the year before. And the 2018 annual report showed Planned Parenthood killed 332,757 babies in abortions, which itself was an increase of 3.51% from the year prior.

That means Planned Parenthood killed almost 34,000 more unborn babies than it did two years ago — even though the abortion giant claims it’s main focus is merely women’s health care.

Planned Parenthood just sells abortions, which explains its reaction to the Texas abortion ban success, as it hardly ever provides actual help and support for pregnant women or adoption assistance.

Its own annual report shows Planned Parenthood provided less contraception, sterilizations, cancer screenings, adoption referrals and other women’s health services than the previous year.

According to its own figures, Planned Parenthood contraception services decreased two percent from 2,620,867 in 2017 to 2,556,413 in 2018 and they have dropped 33% over the last ten years as more women are given abortion than pregnancy options.

Actual women’s health care services have dropped as well. Over the last 10 years, total services at Planned Parenthood have fallen 10 percent from 10,943,609 in 2008 to 9,82,1548 in 2018. Specifically, pap smears and tests decreased almost seven percent from 274,145 in 2017 to 255,682 in 2018. They have decreased 72 percent in the last 10 years.

Breast exams have dropped nearly 11% from 296,310 in 2017 to 265,028 in 2018 even as Planned Parenthood claims it’s helping women prevent breast cancer. The number of breast exams at Planned Parenthood, which women can do on their own or at any legitimate medical provider, dropped 68% from 826,197 in 2008 to 265,028 in 2018. An total cancer screenings have dropped almost 8% from the last annual report, 614,361 in 2017 to in 566,186 2018. In the last 10 years, cancer screenings have dropped 69% from 1,849,691 in 2008 to 566,186 in 2018.

The abortion business also does less prenatal care than it used to. While it killed 345,672 babies in abortions, it helped only 9,798 with prenatal care — killing over 35 babies for every woman it helped with prenatal care. And prenatal care has dropped 68% from its 2010 figures, when it claimed it helped 31,098 women in 2010.

The Planned Parenthood abortion company also helps few women with adoption referrals. While it killed 345,672 babies in abortions, it helped only 4,279 women with adoption referrals in 2018 — killing 80 babies for every woman it helped with adoption.

Finally, the number of well-woman exams Planned Parenthood did in 2018 dropped almost 2% from the prior year.
