Planned Parenthood closes clinic after clinic
American Life League ^ | 13 Dec 06 | American Life League

Posted on 12/14/2006 5:36:53 PM PST by Quiet Man Jr.

"Planned Parenthood is shrinking," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League. "Though it still operates the nation's largest chain of abortion facilities, Americans are rejecting Planned Parenthood and its agenda as more and more of its clinics are closing across the United States." American Life League's exclusive new study shows that the number of Planned Parenthood "health" clinics has plummeted to its lowest total in almost 20 years.

"In our study," explained Sedlak, who leads American Life League's effort to expose the true nature of Planned Parenthood, "we found the organization has 817 'health' clinics. The number of 'health' clinics is the lowest it has been since 1987." The rise and fall of Planned Parenthood clinic numbers can be seen in the following table:

1987 816 "health" clinics 1990 879 "health" clinics 1995 938 "health" clinics 2000 875 "health" clinics 2005 825 "health" clinics 2006 817 "health" clinics The number of Planned Parenthood "health" clinics has dropped from 938 in 1995 to 817 today – a reduction of 121 clinics in 11 years, an average of 11 "health" clinics per year. (Planned Parenthood also operates 42 "express" clinics that have no exam rooms and are basically retail store fronts. These facilities are not included in the count of "health" clinics.)

"This latest study shows that people are rejecting Planned Parenthood all over the country," said Sedlak. "Americans, whom we have supplied with the truth about this organization, simply do not want Planned Parenthood in their communities. It is time elected officials got the message and stopped giving hundreds of millions in taxpayer money to an organization that is clearly losing public support all across the nation."

If you could ever dry up their corporate funding, they'd close more than half.

I continue to boycott companies that give to Premeditated Butcherhood.

Didn't know about the corporate funding. Just bought my first pair of Levis ever...and I'm over 45.

Levi Strauss funds every manner of lefty degenerate endeavor they can find. K-Mart, though, sells some jeans called "Rustler" that I like just as well. I probably buy 5 or 6 pair a year, so over 15 years, that might be 90 pair of Levis they didn't sell me. And they're anti-gun and since I always have one of those on my hip...well, I guess they just don't want my business.

Self-ABORTING. Those female children aborted in 1987 would be 18-19 years old by now and NONE of them need an abortion because they will never see sunshine or get pregnant.

That's one pair of Levi's going back to Wal-mart. Must have been in my subconscious for some reason since this is the first and only pair I've ever bought.

When you give to United Way, be sure you specify where your money is to go. Otherwise some of it will end up at PP.

I think it is better to make the donations directly to the Charities of your choice, therefore letting the money bypass the legalistics and skim crew at United Way.

I bet they are still booming in the black communities since the founder of Planned Parenthood was a racist that hated blacks and would have loved to see them all dead. (from what I read anyway)...

I suggest the following, its fun to do every few weeks. Call PP, tell them that you understand that they help with family planning and that you would like help planning a family of twelve. Turns out, they don't do that kind of planning.

The official list is apparently no longer available because of spamming but here's a news release from last year with some company names.

You also need to be aware of a little trick many businesses do. They don't contribute to controversial liberal groups directly. They give their money to a charitable trust with a board of directors that then give to groups like Premditated Butcherhood.

Also, after a little incident with Target/Hudson-Dayton a few years ago, I also don't trust their promises to stop contributing to such groups. What they do is answer the protestors that they've stopped giving when, in actuality, they simply redivert the money to similar causes. The pro-lifers think they've accomplished something so they stop boycotting when, in actuality, they're still dirty.

That's why I still boycott companies like Target, Olive Garden, Wells Fargo and American Express whether they are on the official list or not. Would you do business with a child rapist just because he promised to stop raping children?

It is not just the corporate funding that needs to be dried up. The federal government gives Planned Parenthood a large portion of its funding. PP does a shell game with the money, claiming to provide "health services" for women. So, whether taxpayers like it or not, our tax dollars subsidize the evil deeds that Planned Parenthood perpetrates.

What you read about Margaret Sanger is absolutely true. She even spoke at Klan rallies, and her magazine was very supportive of the Nazi regime before the war broke out. She even ran a featured editorial by the Nazi Minister of Racial Hygiene, Ernst Rudin. At one point she came up with (and executed) a plan to recruit several black pastors, "educate" them about the importance of birth control, and send them into predominately black areas, so that the net result would be fewer blacks.

Part of the reason for the name change to Planned Parenthood was that after the Holocaust they needed to distance themselves from the rhetorical support the organization had given to Hitler.

I read this story about two Christians, a widow and a widower, who ended up having a real life "Yours, mine and Ours" situation with a total of twelve kids and one on the way. About a year after they got married, they all went to the county fair and a couple at a time they visited the Zero Population Growth booth. Imagine the sight of a family of fifteen, one of them in evidence only as a huge bulge in the mother's belly, wlking arounfd the fair with every one of them wearing a ZPG button. :-)

The abortionist over in rockford, IL died and his replacement rides a circuit, doing abortions at three different clinics. I believe she spends two days a week at each, or something like that. The clinic in South Dakota stays open only because they fly an abortioist in every week.
