New video debunks Planned Parenthood’s 3 percent abortion myth
A new video released by Live Action exposes how Planned Parenthood manipulates its own data to cover up the fact that abortion – not women’s health care – accounts for the lion’s share of the corporation’s services for pregnant women.
Live Action’s motion-graphics video breaks down Planned Parenthood’s self-reported corporate data, revealing how abortion is the core service and chief money-maker for the abortion chain.
Contrary to repeated claims by Planned Parenthood executives, mainstream media, and abortion advocates that abortion only accounts for 3 percent of its services, one in eight Planned Parenthood patients gets an abortion. The corporation commits over 30 percent of the nation’s abortions – over 320,000 abortions every year – or one abortion every 97 seconds.
To arrive at the 3 percent figure, Planned Parenthood divides the number of abortions by the number of services the facilities provide. These services, which include STI testing, pregnancy tests, pap smears, breast exams, birth control, and others, are counted equally with an abortion procedure. So even though abortion is much more profitable for Planned Parenthood, an abortion procedure is calculated as equivalent to a pregnancy test or contraception.
