Dear friends, join Oregon Right to Life in their ongoing counter-campaign against Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon! About a year ago, I had the honor of visiting and touring the Oregon Right to Life headquarters, and was really inspired by the passionate and dedicated folks behind the scenes.
So what’s going on in Oregon? It’s the only state where abortion access isn’t subject to any restriction whatsoever. This means an unborn baby can be “terminated” at any point for any reason before birth, and there is no law requiring abortion providers (who profit off abortions) to counsel women facing crisis pregnancies about ALL their options, and so on.
Unfamiliar with why so many pro-lifers are particularly outraged by Planned Parenthood? Here are some facts from their latest annual report. Don’t be fooled by their deliberately misleading “abortion is only 3% of our services” rhetoric!
– The breakdown of services rendered specifically to pregnant women is consistent with a clear institutional bias: prenatal care 5.4%, adoption 0.5%, abortion 94.1%.
– In other words, nearly 19 out of every 20 pregnant women who got these services at Planned Parenthood were sold abortions.
– For every adoption referral made by, 174 abortions are performed. That’s 1:174.
– 41% of its $1.3 billion of revenue came from taxpayer funding.
Moreover, pro-life or pro-choice, any person ought to be outraged by Planned Parenthood’s long repertoire of unethical tactics for influencing crisis-pregnancy moms to choose abortion. We need to stop taxpayer funding of this “nonprofit” which profits off vulnerable women under the guise of “caring no matter what”, and while calling themselves “America’s most trusted provider of reproductive health care”. (Health care? Really?)
