From LifeNews.com, we learn this Holy Saturday that former Planned Parenthood abortion clinic director Abby Johnson has released a new ad that takes on Planned Parenthood regarding the much-disputed 3% figure Planned Parenthood uses to minimize the extensive nature of its abortion business.
” . . . Planned Parenthood makes about 40 percent of its income off of abortions and pushes centers like the one she ran to sell them to women. Although Planned Parenthood’s own figures reveal more than 95% of pregnant women who enter Planned Parenthood centers receive abortions as opposed to prenatal care or adoption referrals, officials with abortion business, during the debate on yanking its federal taxpayer funding, claimed just 3% of all services at Planned Parenthood involve abortion. (CP – yea, we all just fell off the turnip wagon! Sure, those dollars are separated out from their general ledger and are fully accountable by independent auditors, right? No? Big surprise!!)
Johnson, who was a Planned Parenthood employee of the year, says one of the reasons to launch the commercial was to expose that fact that “while Planned Parenthood is quick to claim that only 3% of what they provide are abortion services, that equated to taking the lives of 332,278 unborn children in 2009.”
“Planned Parenthood reduces the child before birth to an object, a ‘choice’, a thing of less-than-human status. Their support of women’s rights tramples on the rights of the child,” Johnson told LifeNews.com.
In her new commercial, Johnson says, “I used to tell women that abortion removed a mass of tissue, but that’s not true. I had to account for the body parts of aborted babies.” Johnson points out that Planned Parenthood’s business model relies on income from abortions. “They won’t protect your child,” she says, “because there’s no money in doing that.” (CP – people behave the way they’re measured so the logical conclusion apparent to anyone without ideological influences warping their minds is that Planned Parenthood doesn’t want to save babies because it’s not profitable.)
When Abby Johnson left Planned Parenthood, they filed a restraining order to keep her from talking. A judge denied the request. “They don’t want Americans to talk about the issue because they don’t want people to learn the ugly realities behind it,” she added.
Life Always board member Rev. Derek McCoy said the group is running the new commercial because it “continues our efforts to bring awareness to the respect for life issue and accentuates the gross inaccuracies that Planned Parenthood portrays to the public.”
“From sexual abuse cover up, to racism, to untruths made by Planned Parenthood executives it provides a clear picture on what Planned Parenthood is really about … abortion,” he said. . .
Life Always board chairman Pastor Stephen Broden adds: “Planned Parenthood is in a multi-billion dollar business and through slick advertising and sophisticated messaging they have deceived many into believing they exist to help women. Planned Parenthood hurts women, babies and families, and abortions harm women.”
At our local 40 Days for Life yesterday, the pro-life protesters received very positive responses from signs asking, “Honk If You Love Babies!” There is no doubt that pro-life is the majority position in America today, but the pro-abortion faction is louder, well funded, and is the legacy political stance. But as the Ms. Johnson says in this new ad below, “Abortion ends in death. Can you live with that?“
