The monster abortion factory was at it again.  Planned Parenthood, the controversial group of baby killers was trying to open their latest clinic on Claiborne avenue.

What a nightmare!   No, not Planned Parenthood but the large number of uninformed Americans that have no idea what they are talking about!

What is Planned Parenthood?   Well, I can tell you what they are not: they are not an abortion clinic.  Do they perform abortions?   Yes, like many health care facilities in the United States, Planned Parenthood does perform abortions.

Abortions account for less than 3% of all the services Planned Parenthood performs.  Less than 3%!

The real mission of Planned Parenthood is to provide health care to the poor and to the young.   75% of Planned Parenthood’s patients live below the poverty level.  25% are teens.  Over 1 million cancer screenings and over 800,000 breast exams are performed annually at Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide.

President Nixon was a major proponent of Planned Parenthood way back in the early 70’s when he said  “no American woman should be denied access to family planning assistance because of her economic condition.”  These guys are about preventative care.

Planned Parenthood is this country’s number one provider of reproductive health services, but some feel they are an abortion factory.   Informed people know otherwise.
