The largest abortion provider in the United States. It performs nearly 200 times more abortions than referrals for adoption. Founded by eugenicist and atheist Margaret Sanger, it is taxpayer subsidized and tax-exempt status and receives federal funding to promote and provide birth control. The organization boasts that it provides “sexual and reproductive health care”, but this is rather transparent expression for abortion and contraception. Planned Parenthood annually gives awards to those who support their agenda and the top award which they give is called The Margaret Sanger Award. 80% of those who have won this award have been pro-eugenics.
Margaret Sanger was the founder of Planned Parenthood and was also a proponent of eugenics, believing that blacks were a racially inferior race, along with being a member of both the American Eugenics Society and the English Eugenics Society. She has been widely praised by many liberal politicians like Hillary Clinton. Alan Guttmacher, who was a President of Planned Parenthood from 1962 to 1974 and who was also former Vice-President of the American Eugenics Society, stated: “We are merely walking down the path that Ms. Sanger has carved out for us.” Similarly, Faye Wattleton, who was the president of Planned Parenthood until 1992, stated that she was “proud” to be “walking in the footsteps” of Margaret Sanger.
Planned Parenthood and its supporters use the term “pro-choice” as their battle cry, but what they really are is “pro-abortion.” There is no real prenatal care that is offered by the organization, and in that way, they really only support one choice: The choice to not have a baby. A recent investigation launched by Live Action showed that Planned Parenthood’s claim of providing prenatal care to pregnant women who wanted to keep their babies was nothing more than a myth: 92 of 97 locations turned pregnant women seeking care away.
Live Action’s president and founder, Lila Rose, commented, “Planned Parenthood says it’s a champion of women’s health care, yet prenatal care, which is an essential service for expectant mothers, is virtually nonexistent.” She went on to say, “It’s clear that despite its claims, abortion is the priority and the only option for pregnant women that visit Planned Parenthood.”
Indeed, Planned Parenthood only cares about one choice, and that’s the choice to abort. But by commandeering the word “choice,” proponents of abortion are able to elicit a stronger emotional response from those whose opinions and minds they wish to sway. The word “choice” implies a grander purpose, and that it’s not just about abortion but a matter of free will and access to “women’s healthcare.”
The claim that Planned Parenthood is an integral player in the realm of women’s health care is a farce. Reports have indicated that many of the services they provide are either absent or contribute to a minuscule number of the total number of services they provide in a given year. Mammograms, for example, are nonexistent, as is prenatal care. And this isn’t speculation – it’s right from the horse’s mouth! Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards was forced to admit this dirty truth during a recent hearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, during which she openly confessed that not a single Planned Parenthood clinic has a mammogram machine. Many of the clinics even had a laugh over how deceptive their name is: The only “planning” services they really offer result in termination of pregnancy.
Planned Parenthood’s greatest deception, sadly, is not in their illusion of providing health care, though that is certainly a great big lie. Their most potent falsehood, however, is their manipulation of the word “choice,” and their insistence that having an abortion is empowering to women. In this way, they encourage women to follow their lead and don’t really give them a choice at all: It’s their way (abortions) or no way at all. “Choice” used to mean that you had options, but at Planned Parenthood, you don’t have any.
In the name of “women’s health” the organization works desperately to soften the truth that abortion takes the life of a baby and hurts mothers. But even the best public relations campaigns cannot change reality. Since 1973 alone, over 57 million abortions – a sixth of our current population in the United States – has been wiped out by abortion, and millions of women are wounded and scarred by the pain of having made such a “choice”.
According to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO), audits show the organization spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but the abortion behemoth’s own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.
It was reported in May 2017 that Planned Parenthood clinics were closing rapidly and that Wyoming and North Dakota had become the first two states to not have any PP clinics. In another report, with the preceding two states included, eight U.S. states had only one abortion clinic in May 2017. Despite this, PP continued to receive $500 million annually in taxpayer dollars.
Planned Parenthood consistently flouts the law:
- Aiding child sex-traffickers. (See WND & LiveAction)
- Lawsuits alleging they shelter child rapists by not reporting underage rape and abuse. (LiveAction)
- 107 criminal charges, which includes 23 felony charges of late-term abortions and falsifying documents, at the Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid Missouri.
- Advises underage teenagers to experiment with pornography and sex without telling parents through their website for teens.
- In February 2010, Planned Parenthood was caught covering up child-sex abuse during an undercover sting for the 10th time. (WND)
- California and Washington State Planned Parenthood facilities have violated the law by overcharging the government tens of millions of dollars.
Human Life International shared on Planned Parenthood:
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America is one of 134 member associations of the gigantic International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), which works in 142 nations on every continent. It joins two other multinational non-governmental organizations that do the most damage to faith, life and family in the world — the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the architect and supporter of the Chinese forced abortion program, and the Population Council, founded and supported by eugenicists, now serving as the guiding hand behind population suppression efforts all over the world.
Planned Parenthood Abortion Statistics
- Planned Parenthood commits about 40% of abortions in the United States
- Their annual abortion count is up to 354,871 and growing
- 96.9% of pregnant women who seek help at Planned Parenthood have abortions.
We also know that this global entity is involved in the sale of baby body parts. This was uncovered in some heroic reporting by the Center for Medical Progress.
From the CMP website: “Citizen journalists at CMP spent two-and-a-half years logging thousands of research hours to painstakingly gather hundreds of hours of undercover footage, dozens of eye-witness testimonies, and nearly two hundred pages of primary source documents.”
In exposing the illegal and barbaric practice of harvesting aborted baby parts for profit, the videos document the relationship between Planned Parenthood and the biotech firm StemExpress, which buys and resells aborted baby body parts for medical research.
The individuals who first reported on this have been attacked by the left. In a court case a judge ruled that these whistleblowers should pay Planned Parenthood $16 million but the judge had connections to Planned Parenthood.
Later in 2020, there was more information that Planned Parenthood was involved in selling baby body parts.
Planned Parenthood Now Raking in Dollars in Transgender Services
Planned Parenthood is the ring-leader in abortions and the sale of baby body parts. Now the entity is making dough in the transgender industry. There is probably no entity looked at in the US like Planned Parenthood. The businesses it deals in are some of the most controversial industries in America.

It now looks like Planned Parenthood is the go-to entity for transgenders.
“Getting cross-sex hormones is an incredibly easy task in most states.
I had a brief appointment at a Planned Parenthood and had my first prescription filled within a matter of days, no questions asked.” https://t.co/49xY5Y6wfO

By getting into transgender work, Planned Parenthood can claim less of its work is for abortions on a percentage of revenues while profiting from this new industry.
Planned Parenthood could not be more evil to Christian conservatives if it tried.
