Planned Parenthood gives award to local office for increasing number of abortions
AURORA, CO – A Planned Parenthood affiliate awarded a local business for increasing the number of abortions it performed over the previous year.
Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains gave a special commendation to its office in Aurora, Colorado, for "exceeding abortion visits first half of fiscal year 2012 compared to first half of fiscal year 2013.”
A former abortion industry worker took a picture of the award and sent it to And Then There Were None, the ministry of former Planned Parenthood manager Abby Johnson to those employed in her former industry.
“Ever since I left Planned Parenthood, I have been talking about the abortion quotas that are established inside abortion facilities,” Johnson wrote in an email announcing the picture, sent out Monday morning. “Many abortion supporters refused to believe it, citing that surely Planned Parenthood wants abortion to be safe, legal and rare.”
“When our former worker saw this award on public display, it really started to change her thinking about Planned Parenthood's motivation,” Johnson wrote.
That revelation comes as the nation's largest abortion provider is engaged in a multi-year public relations effort to downplay its promotion of abortion-on-demand by highlighting its other services, such as supporting LGBT members of the community and distributing abortion-inducing “emergency contraception.”
In 2012, Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions while collecting $540.6 million in taxpayer funds at the federal, state, and local level. That was actually down from 2011 levels, when Planned Parenthood performed a record-setting 333,964 abortions and collected $542.4 million in government revenue.
Prenatal services dropped by nearly one-third (32 percent) during that single year. Cancer screenings decreased by 14 percent since last year, and 39 percent since 2009.
In all, “abortions made up 93.8 percent of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5.6 percent (19,506) and 0.6 percent (2,197)” in 2012 respectively, the Susan B. Anthony List noted in a fact sheet.
Despite that, the media portray Planned Parenthood as "a place where women can go for low cost medical advice and care."
“Please forward this on to people that you know,” Johnson said. “Planned Parenthood's real agenda needs to be exposed!”
