United States and Planned Parenthood are world leaders in performing abortions

On her Facebook page and Twitter account, nurse turned pro-life activist Jill Stanek is featuring quite the graphic.

As you can see from the chart, the United States is a leader for the number of abortions committed, second only to China, which has a horrible human rights record in part because of their One-Child policy and forced abortions. Being second in this case isn’t too flattering.

And yet despite such a ranking, pro-abortion groups have given the United States grades of a C and even a D when it comes to abortion rights.

The United States is also one of only four nations which performs abortions for any reason up until birth, and one of seven which performs abortions past 20-weeks.

When placed on the chart for comparison, International Planned Parenthood Federation would rank fourth, and Planned Parenthood Federation of America would be sixth.

Considering that abortions performed by Planned Parenthood have gone up, while more legitimate health services the organization touts have plummeted, we hardly need to be funding this international leader of abortions. Women will not be left out in the cold without Planned Parenthood, especially since a vote to defund Planned Parenthood will be a vote to fund Federally Qualified Health Centers. A vote against defunding Planned Parenthood then is also a vote against funding true lifesaving care and treatment.

Women don’t need Planned Parenthood. We as a nation, if we want to be lower on the chart – and hopefully disappear from it completely – can start by defunding the abortion giant.
