The 3 Percent Dodge

The nation’s premier provider of abortions doesn’t want to be known for providing abortions. Planned Parenthood, embroiled in a scandal over secret videos capturing its cavalier dismemberment of unborn babies and sale of their body parts, insists that abortion is only 3 percent of what it does.

The group does more breast exams and provides more breast-care services (490,000), but not by that much. The 3 percent figure is derived by counting abortion as just another service like much less consequential services. So abortion is...

Although Planned Parenthood claims that women need its health care services, it has steadily increased its abortion numbers while whittling down other health programs. 1) Aiding child sex-traffickers Planned Parenthood was exposed for aiding and abetting child sex-traffickers [liveaction.org/traffick/], covering up the trafficking of minor girls while helping pimps obtain secret abortions. State law requires that Planned Parenthood staff report cases of suspected child sexual which they failed to do repeatedly. In one clinic, undercover tapes reveal how a Planned Parenthood manager helped a pimp and prostitute cover up their illegal child sex-trafficking ring, encouraging them to skirt the law by lying about the age of the girls involved.
