NO. Abortion is 56.9% of PP’s Business Revenue
PPFA downplays its abortion business and presents itself as a healthcare provider deserving of ever-greater federal funding.
Yet, abortion obviously remains central to its business model.
This study estimates that abortion revenues comprise over HALF of PPFA [business] income.
Meanwhile, the PPFA claim is oft repeated that abortion represents 3 percent of the services it delivers. How is this possible?
PPFA mathematically shrinks 56.9 percent of its [business] revenue to “three percent of medical services” by counting surgical abortions the same as STD tests, writing prescriptions, and so on.
All are equally reported as ONE “medical service”.
In this way, PPFA uses 10 Million mundane medical tasks, such as blood tests, to mask the extent of its only growth — abortion services.
