Planned Parenthood has been caught RED-HANDED denying millions of women access to contraception, refusing them permission to use birth control, and controlling their reproductive choices.
What? You thought Planned Parenthood GAVE AWAY, rather than denied access to, abortion pills and birth control? You must not have heard Planned Parenthoods new definition of denying access.
Planned Parenthood rakes in over a billion dollars every year. It charges money for contraceptionbig moneypocketing hundreds of millions in contraception cash from women and taxpayers.
But Planned Parenthood blasts PEOPLE OF FAITH WHO oppose ObamaCares ABORTION PILL MANDATE. Those families have done nothing but ask courts for freedom from ObamaCares coercive mandate which forces them to pay for other peoples abortion-pills, sterilizations and birth control in violation of their religious beliefs. These people of faith do not want to be in the business of handing out free abortion pills and birth control.
Planned Parenthoods recent Facebook ad insists that for that reason alone, these religious families are not EXERCISING THEIR FAITH BELIEFS, but rather are acting to block womens access to birth control coverage, refusing to give women permission to use birth control, and control[ling] the health care choices of women.
All because religious families are asking that they not BE MANDATED to pay for these ABORTION-INDUCING DRUGS so that women will get such drugs from them for free.
But Planned Parenthood doesnt hand out birth control or abortion inducing drugs for free either. Planned Parenthood ALWAYS COLLECTS COLD, HARD CASH from their CLIENTS and AMERICAN TAXPAYERS for the birth control it doles out. Planned Parenthoods websites show that it charges between $15 and $800 for hormonal birth control, up to $70 for early-abortion pills, and up to $1000 for IUDs. At the very minimum, it charged low-income women $90 million for contraceptives in fiscal year 2011, and collected more than half a billion dollars in taxpayer money in that same year.
Since Planned Parenthood is not giving every woman (OR EVEN ANY WOMAN) abortion pills and birth control for free because its concern is its BOTTOM LINE, then by its own standard it is no better than religious families who, FOR CONSTITUTIONALLY-PROTECTED RELIGIOUS FREEDOM REASONS, also dont want to provide these items for free. Yes, Planned Parenthood is blocking womens access to birth control.
But wait. You might say that Planned Parenthood isnt actually making birth control illegal, isnt penalizing women for using it, isnt directly telling women not to use it. After all, women dont need Planned Parenthoods permission to use birth control, just like they dont need their bosss permission. But none of that matters to Planned Parenthood: religious families arent doing any of this either. PEOPLE OF FAITH just want to be free from ObamaCare forcing them to buy ABORTION PILLS for women.
Yet according to Planned Parenthood, anyone who refuses to give women free abortion pills and contraception is blocking access to birth control. So, in fact, that makes Planned Parenthood the NUMBER ONE ENEMY OF ACCESS to womens birth control. They charge women and taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars for it every year.
Planned Parenthood, stop holding my health hostage! Planned Parenthood needs to put a stop to this attack on womens health by asking Congress to rid our country of Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood makes a lot of money providing abortions. Why would they want less of them?
Pocketing the money? I doubt it. I suspect it’s being funneled back to the Democrat party.
Perhaps PP sells a low dose Birth Control pill, that has a high failure rate. The customers thinking they are “safe” make lots of use of the pills, and therefore have a larger number of abortions then if they had less sex. PP gets a double benefit. Sells lots of Birth Control Pills and then gets to charge for the result of the ineffective product. Sweet way to make money!
I know a family who has a 7 year old with a brain tumor. They couldn’t pay the deductible at first.
Meanwhile, millions are shelling out BIG MONEY to KILL their offspring.
Don’t know what to say. Damn the world?
