Celebration Time at Planned Parenthood

planned-parenthood-logo

The last four years have been grim for most of us, but for some Hope & Change has been a golden era — Planned Parenthood, for example:

This month marks the 40th anniversary of the passage of Roe v. Wade — the abortion decision. Planned Parenthood and those who support the culture of death will celebrate while those who embrace the culture of life will mourn the loss of 55 million Americans destroyed in this holocaust.

The reason for PP’s celebration may be its recently released annual report showing a record number of 333,964 abortions performed in 2011 at the going rate of $451 for an early stage abortion. This figure does not take into account the lucrative income obtained for chemical or later surgical abortions — big business indeed.

In addition,

The money given to them by Congress was $55 million more than given in the year 2010 for a total of $542 million in federal, state and local government funding.

But don’t forget Planned Parenthood isn’t only about abortion. It’s just that abortion is where the money is — and why its backers back it.

While the number of abortions increased at the clinics, the number of other services was down. Since 2009, PP’s cancer screenings dropped 29 percent while contraceptive services dropped 12 percent. The number of mammograms performed has (surprise!) remained the same at 0 percent.

Someone benefits, no matter who wins elections — even if the most avidly pro-abortion president in history prevails.

    with planned parenthood…who needs drones:
    it’s for the children :(

  • StanInTexas

    LIBERALS: Must control and rid ourselves of guns. And we must do it now to save the lives of children.

    CONSERVATIVES: For the children? But what about the children that die as a result of abortion? What should we do about them?

    LIBERAL: KILL THEM ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Planned Parenthood and those who support the culture of death will celebrate while those who embrace the culture of life will mourn the loss of 55 million Americans destroyed in this holocaust.
    —–
    By the numbers, only 6 million Jews died in the holocaust
    Mao, by comparison killed 45 million transforming China into a Liberal utopia.
    55 million is roughly the number of people who died on all sides of all causes in WW2
    Break out the party favors and balloons, libs.

    News Flash to Women: Once conceived, a baby is NOT YOUR BODY. You want a breast implant? Piercings? You want to cut your tongue out? BE MY GUEST, but a baby is NOT YOUR BODY, it’s a separate entity INSIDE you.

    I don’t believe abortion is murder (in most cases), because I don’t think these women understand that it’s not “them”. It IS killing, though. There would be far, far fewer abortions if people would just make that leap of knowledge.

    Planned Parenthood, though…they KNOW. They ARE murderers.

    Having problems posting to this thread, no .exe files in my post at all. Hmm…must be a script error.

  • Nangleator

    Once conceived? Do you think a fertilized ovum has the same rights as a grown human? If so, I have some bad news for you.

  • StanInTexas

    Skyfall, to be accurate, abortion is homicide, not murder. Right now, abortion is legal, so while the death is deliberate, it is not unlawful.

    Nangleator, we are talking about the right to life and the fact that the ovum/fertilized egg/embryo/child is a separate and unique human being. Please try to reign in your stupid analogies.

  • Nangleator

    Okay, then, Stan. From Jonathan Dudley’s book:

    “Due to hormone imbalances, genetic anomalies, and a number of unknown factors, between 50 percent and 75 percent of embryos fail to implant in the uterus and are passed with the monthly menstrual flow.”

    Get that? More than half of all humans ever conceived. Since time began. Now, and for the foreseeable future. That renders all other causes of death minutia. Unimportant.

    So, will you drop everything to make sure doctors work on this terrible scourge? Donate whatever it takes? Defund all other research projects, and the military to cut those numbers down? Don’t you see focusing on those piddling 55 million Americans and not the rest makes you into some kind of monster?

    Or do those “ovum/fertilized egg/embryo/children” not actually matter, except as a tool to attack your political opponents?

  • StanInTexas

    Again with the STUPID analogies. You are trying to compare the natural process to man’s deliberate intervention? Or are you truly unable to see the difference between and embryo not implanting and an embryo implanting, growing, and then being deliberately killed?

    You need new talking points.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    So, will you drop everything to make sure doctors work on this terrible scourge?
    Nangleator can’t tell the difference between a group of cells failing to attach to the uterine wall, and an abortionist jamming a pair of scissors into the base of a scull
    Can anyone help him out ?

  • Nangleator

    Monster.

    Note that I am not a monster, because I don’t believe in your ridiculous absolutist nonsense.

    But you do, you monster. Billions of lives, and you’ll do nothing.

  • Aussie_john

    Nangleator,

    It is not for us (or anyone) to judge when a life begins. But, it is obvious that life begins somewhere. Why do you believe that we should be allowed to ‘Play God’? One thing for sure, one day we will all face God, and these people that willfully end a life (at any stage of being) will have to answer for it.

  • StanInTexas

    Again, Nangleator, yours is the analogy of an IDIOT! There is a huge difference between an act of nature and a deliberate action.

  • Skyfall

    Stan, point taken on “homicide”, but I was trying to affirm that most people who have abortions aren’t “murderers” in the sense that they think they’re taking a life. It IS killing, or homicide if you wish.

    As to nangleator, a moron like that will argue the point simply because agenda outweighs EVERYthing else. An embryo is is still a separate life, nang. It is NOT the mother’s body. There is no other point to be made…and since you know that but are unwilling to admit it simply so you can have all the unprotected sex you want, then destroy the consequences of your actions, that indeed does make you a monster.

  • dapenguin

    and then add to this the FACT that there is a link between abortion and breast cancer and you can keep these women coming back to you for years, for screenings. Just don’t tell them about this study or our game is over

  • Buffalobob

    PP one of the organizations that can kill black babies and not be labeled as racist.

  • Son of Taz

    @Skyfall – a correction – it’s not an entity, it’s a soul, made in God’s image.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    As to nangleator, a moron like that will argue the point simply because agenda outweighs EVERYthing else
    Skyfall
    I think he hopes to distract the pro life movement by distracting them with avoiding ants on the sidewalk while his ilk gets on with their task of slaughtering babies

  • Mr Evilwrench

    Once the egg has been fertilized, it has its own unique DNA, human DNA, and has, therefore, human rights. There are, of course, many milestones it must pass in life, even before birth. Implantation is merely the first. Even having succeeded at that, there are many ways a fetus may miscarry, even under ideal conditions, just as there are many ways to die after birth. Failure to implant is a strawman. Leftards fail pretty consistently at logic. Nangleator, go back to Cheezburger and make your stupid comments on stupid pictures. Here, you’re just tiresome like a 5 year old in an adult conversation.

  • dave

    Left wing policies have put more people in the dirt than any gun has ever. So before you damn libs open your fat mouths to spew your leftist feakle matter think about that for a sec

  • andre

    Head of PP looks like a typical white upper middle class suburban housewife. The banality of evil–Hannah Arendt. Woe unto those who call good evil and evil good.

    Gosh. I don’t know whether to consider Unplanned Parenthood’s 2012 results as an accomplishment – or a crime against humanity.

    I think I’ll go with crime against humanity.

  • Skyfall

    Taz, I know we’re on the same page (and yes, soul would have been a better word), but “entity” is entirely correct for the point I was making. It’s definition is “a thing with distinct and independent existence”, which a soul surely is.

    …and Nang (& Planned Parenthood) know it.
