Planned Parenthood and Cecile Richards: “Proud to Provide Abortion”

Ever notice how Planned Parenthood always seems to downplay its abortion services and pretend to be a “healthcare” provider? You probably also remember how the left used to somewhat acknowledge the dirty business of abortion and tell us they only wanted to keep the procedure “safe, legal, and rare.”

Well, in a rare moment of honesty, president Cecile Richards affirmed Planned Parenthood’s satisfaction with its abortion legacy:

“Planned Parenthood is proud to provide abortion—a necessary service that’s as vital to our mission as birth control or cancer screenings.”

Of course Planned Parenthood is proud of its abortion services. That is what keeps their business alive, as the organization provides over 320,000 life-ending procedures each year. In fact, one could even say abortion is more vital to Planned Parenthood than any service the organization claims to offer.

Just last month, Live Action exposed Planned Parenthood’s “healthcare” masquerade by releasing tapes of employees telling undercover investigators that their clinics DID NOT offer prenatal care for expecting mothers. In fact, one employee was recorded saying, “We specialize in abortions. You know, that’s what our ultrasounds are for, to see how far along the, um, patient is.”

While honesty is a virtue, Live Action also has a clip of Richards herself saying that prenatal care is among the “kinds of services that folks depend on Planned Parenthood for.”

So, Planned Parenthood is “proud to provide abortion,” provides no prenatal care, and apparently operates well-tuned misinformation machine. It’s shocking that any corporation would want to be associated with such a contemptible organization. Yet, our resource page shows many corporations directly support Planned Parenthood’s abortion business. You can click on the companies listed to see their scorepages and links where you can directly contact their corporate offices.

Help us tell companies like Bank of America and Pepsi, “Stop funding Planned Parenthood’s abortion business!”
