VIDEO: Planned Parenthood Uses Funny Math to Report 3% Abortion Stat
To anyone that knows what Planned Parenthood is and what they do, the fact that they say abortion is only 3% of the services they offer is a conundrum of the highest order. Abortion is the #1 service at Planned Parenthood. It is what they are known for and what they are most proud of. How could anyone at Planned Parenthood (or their supporters) say that abortion is only 3% of what they do (and keep a straight face)?
A new video from Live Action is making the math make sense for the millions of Americans that reject the abortion culture being fed by our culture. The simple explanation is that Planned Parenthood uses tricky statistical reporting to get to their oft-repeated 3% number. The actual number is around 30% for abortions and far less for the other “women’s services” Planned Parenthood says they offer. Live Action gave an accurate report of the numbers in a recent post.
Here’s the numbers:
- Planned Parenthood’s U.S. market share for Pap tests is 0.97%. It performed 271,539 tests in fiscal year 2014-15, out of 28.1 million tests nationwide (source)
- Planned Parenthood’s U.S. market share for clinical breast exams is 1.8%. It performed 363,803 exams in fiscal year 2014-15, out of 20 million exams nationwide. (Note: These are physical exams, not mammograms. Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms.)(source)
- Planned Parenthood’s U.S. market share for abortions is 30.6%. It committed 323,999 abortions in fiscal year 2014-15, out of approximately 1.06 million abortions nationwide. (source)
- Planned Parenthood aborts 160 children for every one child it refers out for adoption. (source)
Watch the video. Share the video. More people need to understand exactly what Planned Parenthood is and what they are all about: abortion. Not women’s health. Not women’s services. Not adoption or life. Abortion.
