Discover the Truth About Planned Parenthood: Lesson 2
Doesn’t Planned Parenthood provide breast exams and other necessary women’s health care services?
The women’s health care services offered by Planned Parenthood are extremely limited. Planned Parenthood’s own numbers show that they perform less than two percent of all manual breast exams and pap smears in the United States annually, they don’t perform a single mammogram (although for years they lied and said they did), and yet they commit over 40 percent of America’s abortions—more than 350,000 annually. That’s 958 children a day who are dismembered, poisoned, or starved to death. You can see more about how Planned Parenthood misleads the public about what it does by watching this short video.
The belief that if Planned Parenthood goes away, women will have nowhere to go for health care is absolutely false. Women seeking accessible, affordable health care can visit any one of the 13,000+ Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) across the United States. FQHCs provide all the reproductive health services that Planned Parenthood offers and more. And they don’t profit off the destruction of innocent preborn life. (See the previous lesson for more details.)
Planned Parenthood portrays itself as a provider of health care services, and claims that abortion is only 3% of what they do. This video exposes these claims as lies.
Something to think about
How many people nationwide do you think are convinced that Planned Parenthood is a champion of women’s health care rather than a heartless operation purpose-built to end innocent lives?
