Planned Parenthood, America’s number one abortion mill, snuffs out more unborn lives than does any other entity presently operating in our country.
Yet, apparently former Texas congressman and current 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke thinks that Planned Parenthood actually saves lives.
In the exchange, Beto O’Rourke is asked how, if elected president, he would safeguard “safe and legal abortion” throughout the nation. O’Rourke then says, “as we shut down all these family planning clinics in my home state of Texas, we’ve made it so hard for women to just get any kind of healthcare at all — including access to a legal, safe abortion.”
“When I connect the fact that family planning clinics — Planned Parenthood, to be specific — in Texas is saving the lives of our fellow women, and it’s a life-and-death matter in this country,” he continued.
As the Washington Examiner reported, Planned Parenthood reported a whopping 332,757 abortions conducted in America just last year, averaging out to over 900 per day.
“The number of abortions by Planned Parenthood increased by 11,373 over the course of a year, according to the organization’s 2017-2108 annual report released this weekend.”
“The report shows that Planned Parenthood conducted 332,757 abortions for the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2018, an increase from 321,384 during the previous fiscal year.”
“Abortions make up 3.4 percent of the services Planned Parenthood performs, an increase from 3 percent the previous year. More than half of its clinics, or 357 out of roughly 600, provide medication abortions, which women can use up to roughly 10 weeks into a pregnancy. The annual report does not indicate the amount of revenue collected from providing abortions. Some health insurance companies cover abortions, other women receive financial help, and others pay out of pocket.”
