Above video, “Planned Parenthood Exposed”, created by CatholicVote.org
Abortion is today’s preeminent human rights issue. “Choice” is a complete sham. Planned Parenthood’s own Annual Reports reveal how staunchly pro-abortion they are. In 2011 they committed 333,964 abortions, while only serving 28,674 prenatal clients and making a measly 2300 adoption referrals. That’s 145 abortions for every ONE adoption referral. Tragically, 98% of these pregnant women leave Planned Parenthood clinics without a baby. Adoption & Parenthood are the life-affirming alternatives, but they don’t profit Planned Parenthood. The next time Planned Parenthood wants to make itself out to be the victim and not the billion-dollar bully, let’s put things into perspective. In their latest annual report, they reported a massive revenue of $1.2 billion, $542.4 million of which came from taxpayers pockets. This “not-for-profit” 501c3 that daily engages in legislative advocacy (which is prohibited by the IRS) made $87.4 million in profit. Their CEO, Cecile Richards, earns over $583k per year, and can “suspend” her full-time salary to campaign full-time for presidential elections. We doubt the IRS will scrutinize the nation’s largest abortion chain like it like it illegally targeted adoptive families or conservative groups. No one holds Planned Parenthood, especially in light of its obscene amount of corporate welfare, accountable. But we will expose their LIES and give no hype–just the well-documented truth.
For an organization’s whose namesake includes “Parenthood”, their Annual Reports don’t even mention how many clients have been trained in parenting skills or how many parenting classes have been offered. Abortions are proudly celebrated, and the term itself is found 35 times in their 2009-2010 Annual Report. The terms ‘parenting’ and ‘adoption’ are only found once. Abstinence is included 5 times–each instance referring to ‘abstinence-only’ programs that are “dangerous” and need to be eliminated. Of course, those who abstain (particularly those between the ages of 15-25) won’t need Planned Parenthood’s “services.”
The words ‘parent’, ‘parenthood’ (other than their own name), ‘mother’, or ‘father’ never appear throughout their entire Annual Report. It would be like the nonprofit organization ‘Charity Water’ not having anything to do with water.
Every other so-called “service” offered by the nation’s largest abortion chain, is quantified. What isn’t seen is that none of these services bring in anything comparable to the massive $200 million in revenue that abortions generate. Interestingly enough, parenthood isn’t even mentioned, by an organization whose namesake touts “choice”.
Abortion is not a me issue. It’s not a you issue. It’s not a black versus white issue. It’s a human rights issue that is having a profoundly destructive effect on our society, especially in the black community. Women deserve to be aware of the whole truth. Men deserve to be given the opportunity to own up to their responsibilities. Unborn life deserves to be defended. There is help in your local community, from those (many of whom are post-abortive) who wish someone would’ve shown them life-affirming options.
“Prochoice” advocates have shown, sadly, that they will promote abortion-on-demand for any reason, at any cost, even in the case of Philly abortionist Kermit Gosnell where women were maimed and killed. They will distort basic science, American history, and statistics to justify killing another for personal convenience. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, touts its “prochoice” ideology with cult-like fervor (see video here) as they fight against every public effort, every legislative measure, every ProLife organization, in order to make sure that every obstacle possible is placed in the way of those who want to find or provide life-affirming choices. The TooManyAborted.com campaign exposes Planned Parenthood’s lies, especially those which claim that no one wants or will love these beautiful children. According to Planned Parenthood’s warped present-day eugenic philosophy, they’re better off dead, which is why they so deliberately and desperately try to propagandize millions that “unintended”=”unwanted”=”unloved”. Our “CHOICE KILL$” awareness campaign further reveals that Eugenics is alive and (tragically) well–as confirmed during each of our campaigns. Our goal is to expose an industry that makes a mockery of the incredible progress that women have made in being empowered as the beautiful nurturing souls they’ve been created to be. The evidence shows that Planned Parenthood simply doesn’t trust women enough to tell them the whole truth, injects gender animus by demonizing men, and targets minorities resulting in hugely disproportionate rates of abortion in the urban community. We also reveal the harmful Racialization of Adoption, a beautiful alternative to abortion. The Radiance Foundation, in conjunction with civil rights leaders, pastors, pregnancy resource centers, child-advocacy groups, adoption agencies, and passionate people from every profession, will continue to educate the public about abortion’s destruction among all races and challenge those who’ve been shown the truth to takeACTion!
