Planned Parenthood opening 14 new facilities in ‘deep red’ states
July 25, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – Despite being without a president, facing the loss of some of its funding through Title X, and still trying to recover its reputation three years after videos from the Center for Medical Progress debuted, Planned Parenthood is opening 14 new abortion centers in the American south.
Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the U.S. It commits more than 300,000 abortions annually – 35 percent of all abortions in the U.S. as of 2014.
In addition to pouring $20 million into the 2018 midterm elections to try to combat the pro-life Trump administration, the abortion company has opened nine new facilities and plans to open five more.
These facilities are in “for the most part, deep red” states, Glamour reported, some of which have laws on the books that will make abortion illegal if Roe v. Wade is overturned. As the left’s rhetoric about a pro-life Supreme Court becomes more panicked, it seems that they think the chances of that happening are high.
Some of the new facilities are replacing much smaller ones in an attempt to attract more clients. It is unclear how much of the more than $500 million it receives in taxpayer funds every year will be spent on these new buildings.
While pushing Planned Parenthood as ready for the coming “storm,” the Glamour piece acknowledged that “so much” of the work Planned Parenthood has done “could disappear” in the next few years.
That work includes teaching preschoolers that “your genitals don’t make you a girl or boy,” pushing extreme sex “education” in schools, and encouraging people to give them money so they can “protect our right to safely f*** whoever the f*** we want.”
As Live Action has exposed via undercover investigations, Planned Parenthood regularly turns away pregnant women seeking ultrasounds for reasons other than abortion. Its own employees, not knowing they were being recorded, admitted that the abortion-focused company’s name “Planned Parenthood” is “deceptive” and “deceiving.”
The news of 14 new Planned Parenthood centers may temporarily buoy abortion supporters, but the number of Planned Parenthoods in the U.S. has dropped from 938 in 1995 to just over 600 in 2017. Twenty Planned Parenthood facilities closed in 2016, the Family Research Council reported.
There is no word yet on who will replace now ex-president Cecile Richards.
