Planned Parenthood is not synonymous with women’s health care

Planned Parenthood should be defunded immediately. It should have been done 10 years ago. In fact, Planned Parenthood should have never received federal tax money in the first place. The argument made by the left against defunding is that it doing so would interrupt critical health services to women. It’s a lie, but one you would expect from the left.

First, how is that Planned Parenthood is so crucial to women’s health? I thought that’s what ObamaCare was for. Is the left admitting that ObamaCare isn’t up to the task of providing women’s health care?

Second, raw numbers show that Planned Parenthood provides very few health services other than abortion, and I hardly classify abortion as a health service. Planned Parenthood last year did 2,197 adoption referrals, provided prenatal services to 19,506, and performed 327,166 abortions. So the notion that Planned Parenthood is some giant in the world of women’s health care is a lie. They are almost exclusively an abortion provider. It’s why they exist. They must be defunded.
