How Many Lives Does Planned Parenthood Take in one Year?
CasyFiano ^ | March 13, 2010 | Cas Fiano

Feminists like to say they’re fighting for women’s right to choose. The abortion lobby says they just want women to have all of the options, to make the choice of whatever is best for them.

Don’t believe it.

What they actually want is for women to have abortions. They don’t want women to see ultrasounds because then, they might choose to keep their baby. They don’t want women to know that adoption is an option for them, too. Women are misled to believe that abortion is their only choice, that they have no way out. When a scared, confused, and desperate woman walk into a Planned Parenthood, she often gets an abortion because she feels like she has no other choice. The so-called “counselors” there prey on this mentality. They don’t show women that there are other options besides just abortion.

See for yourself: over at Live Action, the 2007 Planned Parenthood Annual Report was exposed, and the numbers are gruesome. In the year 2007, Planned Parenthood made only 4,912 adoption referrals yet performed 305,310 abortions.

Should those numbers really be so lopsided? No, but Live Action’s newest undercover project, the Rosa Acuna Project, shows why these numbers are so lopsided. The “counselors” at Planned Parenthood aren’t there to help women make the best choice for themselves. They aren’t there to tell women that abortion isn’t the only choice they have. They are salespeople, plain and simple, and the product that they are selling is abortion.

Now, if abortion is legal, then for the time being women should be advised that abortion is an option for them. But why do these clinics never tell women about other choices they could make? Why is it that pro-choicers never seem very thrilled about the idea of a woman choosing to have her baby? When someone walks into a Planned Parenthood clinic, all of the options should be explained to her. There are ways to get help if you choose to keep your baby. If you don’t want an abortion, we can do an adoption referral for you. If you feel like you have no options, let us tell you that you do have a choice.

How is making women feel like abortion is the only option they have advocating choice?

They also lie and tell these women that an abortion is much safer than giving birth.

They have so much blood on their hands. I don’t know how these women sleep at night.

March 14 is my birthday. I wasn't supposed to be born. I was conceived out of wedlock and my mother's family encouraged her to have an abortion. Back then, however, the only place where she could have done that was in Puerto Rico. She chose to bring me into this world. The other women in the hospital who shared her situation, chose to give their children up for adoption. My mother was adamant; she kept me.

Tomorrow, on my birthiday, I will give my mother a beautiful plant that represents new growth and thank her for choosing life. Please consider doing something similar with your mothers on your birthdays. Consider what might have happened in today's world, had they chosen to terminate your life.

“How Many Lives Does Planned Parenthood Take in one Year?”

As many as they possibly can. Cha-CHING!

This really is heartbreaking. We Pro-Lifers MUST do a better job of advocating adoption. I think we fail badly in that area.

Yep and they lie about just how easy it is. The devastation of abortion will last for generations. When you kill one child, you are killing off a whole line of human beings. When a woman aborts, no body can tell me that doesn’t affect her mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically.

The abortion lobby says they just want women to have all of the options, to make the choice of whatever is best for them.

Well, I was surprised with Planned Parenthood here in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There's a relative that ended up being abandoned by a guy she should have never been with and now she's got a baby along the way. She had considered an abortion with some other relatives urging it, too. Of course, she already knew my thoughts on it, since I had made it clear for years. But, I still said that it was something that she did not really want to do.

Now, the thing is, she went to Planned Parenthood for some help in taking care of the baby, during her pregnancy and I urged her not to go there... I could just see them urging her to get an abortion in her circumstances.

But, the reality of the matter is that they've provided her with assistance and doctor's care and are going to help her through the pregnancy. Now that was a surprise. I didn't expect that.

So, anyway, I thought I should just say that since I would have never referred anyone over there (and I still wouldn't) -- but still, it's a fact that it turned out that way with this relative I know.

Thank you for posting so many Pro-Life threads over the years, NYer.
It is always comforting to see so many kindred spirits on Freerepublic.
I have spent so many mornings over the years praying at those wicked slaughter-houses - and the worst part is to look at their faces as they come out to leave - THAT is what burns into my minds eye - if they didn't realize it going in, they sure do as they leave.
And then they bury it, and it comes out through drug use, depression, nightmares of lost children, etc. The only thing that can heal them then is Jesus.
Keep praying for them.

The real answer is that every year 22% of American pregnancies end in death for the the infant: 1.3 million deaths per year by abortion.

The so-called “Planned Parenthood” group should rename their organization “Planned Baby-Death”.

In reality they have hardly anything to do with parenting, and everything to do with exterminating babies as a method of “birth control” by choice of death sentence for the innocent infant.

Like the Aztecs, they need to keep the killings up to appease their master, Satan.

According to “The Guttmacher Institute”, Income for fiscal year 2006-2007 was $1.018 billion (up 11 percent from 2005-2006), with nearly one-third coming from taxpayers? This “not-for-profit” entity ends virtually every fiscal year with tens of millions of dollars in “excess revenue over expenses” (known to most people as “profit”). The “excess” for 2006-2007 alone was $114.8 million.

From Margeret Sanger’s “Women and the New Race”

“Woman’s rôle has been that of an incubator and little more. She has given birth to an incubated race. She has given to her children what little she was permitted to give, but of herself, of her personality, almost nothing. In the mass, she has brought forth quantity, not quality. The requirement of a male dominated civilization has been numbers. She has met that requirement”

“The woman who goes to the abortionist’s table is not a criminal but a martyr—a martyr to the bitter, unthinkable conditions brought about by the blindness of society at large. These conditions give her the choice between the surgeon’s instruments and the sacrificing of what is highest and holiest in her—her aspiration to freedom, her desire to protect the children already hers. These conditions not the woman—outface society with this question”

My mother was 12 years old when I was born and turned 13, 19 days afterward!

Dad was 17.

If there ever was a good excuse for an abortion .. I guess you could say that I would have been it!

Thank God that my parents didn’t think so!

This was in South Florida back in 1952.

You are right! Abortion is not women’s health care! It’s just the beginning of the death camps....

My mother turned 16 the month before I was born. We must be kindred souls :-)

If there ever was a good excuse for an abortion .. I guess you could say that I would have been it!

It was much more difficult back then. Had we been conceived in today's society .. well, who knows if we would be having this discussion.

Thank your mother for choosing life! Surprise her with a bouquet of flowers and a card that lets her know how grateful you are. Thank you for posting your story.

Thank you for sharing your relative’s experience! It is comforting to know that Planned Parenthood in Tulsa actually provides pregnancy assistance and medical care. Perhaps they’ve understood that public sentiment is changing to pro-life and have implemented a new policy. Failing that, they may soon find themselves out of work.
