Worldwide, Only China and Russia Do More Abortions Every Year Than International Planned Parenthood

View Charts at http://www.lifenews.com/2015/08/05/worldwide-only-china-and-russia-do-more-abortions-every-year-than-planned-parenthood/ The Charlotte Lozier Institute, the education and research arm of Susan B. Anthony List, published a report that reveals that China is the only country in the world that has a higher abortion rate than the United States. The Institute also reports that “if Planned Parenthood were included for comparison, it would rank sixth in the world in number of abortions carried out annually; and the International Planned Parenthood Federation would be fourth in the number of abortions carried out per year.” Unfortunately, this information is not surprising because federal funding of Planned Parenthood has jumped from 33% to nearly 50% under the Obama administration, with over half a billion dollars coming from taxpayer money. Here’s the breakdown of annual abortions by country and abortion provider: China 9,173,100 United States 1,213,000 Russian Federation 1,208,700 International PP Federation 977,189 India 641,800 Vietnam 332,200 PP USA 327,653 Japan 242,300 France 198,200 England and Wales 189,800 Turkey 177,100 Azerbaijan 159,700 It is discouraging that our abortion rate is second to China’s— a nation that is known for their brutal one-child policy and human rights abuses. In China, men put pressure on women to abort their girls for boys; husbands often threaten divorce as punishment for their wives if they refuse to abort; and friends and family belittle their pregnant loved ones for wanting to keep their babies. The United States is similar to China in that we too perform extremely late abortions. In fact, we are one of only four nations in the world (with China, North Korea and Canada) that performs abortions for any reason up until...

Some Fetal Organ Harvesting Videos Placed on Restraining Order

Planned Parenthood’s alleged undercover sale of fetal body parts is making abortion advocates desperate. They know that for-profit participation in fetal organ trafficking is indefensible in the public eye, so instead of engaging the debate, they are attempting to silence it. A series of videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), giving the public an inside look into Planned Parenthood’s grisly abortion business, have garnered over 5.7 million views. They have sparked ongoing investigations of Planned Parenthood in Congress and in 9 states including: Georgia, Texas, Ohio, Louisiana, Florida, Kansas, Missouri, Tennessee, and South Carolina. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has placed an emergency statewide ban on the sale of fetal tissue. StemExpress, the for-profit company that allegedly acted as the middleman for Planned Parenthood’s alleged organ harvesting practice, is beginning to feel pressure from an outraged American public. On Wednesday, StemExpress filed a lawsuit against CMP with the Los Angeles Superior Court, accusing them of violating wiretapping laws. The judge placed a restraining order on CMP, preventing them from releasing any videos featuring high-ranking StemExpress officials until a hearing on August 19th. A statement released by David Daleiden, founder of CMP, responded to the court order saying: “StemExpress…is attempting to use meritless litigation to cover-up this illegal baby parts trade, suppress free speech…their initial petition was rejected by the court, and their second petition was eviscerated to a narrow and contingent order… “The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and will contest all attempts from Planned Parenthood and their allies to silence our First Amendment rights and...
