TONY PERKINS: Planned Parenthood, no friend of parents

Posted February 09, 2017

As Congress debates stripping federal funds from Planned Parenthood, a coalition of pro-life groups has organized nationwide protests outside hundreds of the organization's clinics. But quotas for abortions?

Inslee said cutting Medicaid funding for contraception, HIV screening and other Planned Parenthood services would lead to an increase in unintended pregnancies, and, therefore, abortions. But quotas for abortions? "It's time to redirect our tax money toward local health clinics that actually provide real care to women, instead of to Planned Parenthood, a corporation focused on upping its abortion numbers".

"For years, our nation has debated life and abortion - at a minimum we should agree that no taxpayer should be forced to fund the largest provider of abortion in the country with their hard-earned tax dollars", Lankford said January 30.

Congressional Republicans pledged early this year to strip Planned Parenthood of federal funding through the budget reconciliation process. Undercover videos have surfaced from Planned Parenthood clinics all around the country.

It's unfortunate you can not accept the concept that abortion is murder. Another 2,100-plus patients on the county's Valley Health Plan rely on the clinic for primary care. While Planned Parenthood continually flaunts the misleading statistic that abortion consists of just 3% of its "services", even the liberal Washington Post admits that this number is deceptive. They want women to panic, to despair, in order to profit off of it.

Mrs May told MPs that she had raised the issue of Israeli settlement-building on occupied Palestinian land during the meeting. The leaders emerged around two minutes later to shake hands in front of the assembled media from Britain and Israel.

It has been one year since the Planned Parenthood clinic in Pullman reopened after its building was heavily damaged in an unsolved arson in 2015. "That lends itself to coercion and manipulation in clinics since there are monetary benefits by meeting that quota". In a press conference February 2 on Capitol Hill, Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) said: "The dark deception of Planned Parenthood continues to make tragic victims of unborn babies and their mothers".

Despite questions previous year that the arson attack would scare off visitors, the clinic is now struggling with an overwhelming number of patients, the CEO said. "So, we lost 5 percent".

"The activism we saw today at the state Capitol is a clear sign that women care deeply about threats to their reproductive freedom", said Tarina Keene, executive director of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia.

Johnson, who authored the 2011 book Unplanned: The Dramatic True Story of a Former Planned Parenthood Leader's Eye-Opening Journey across the Life Line, also told CP in 2014 that the clinic employees were rewarded with pizza parties if they met their abortion quotas.
