there's a lot of evidence..that you aren't providing any evidence! LOL!~
No it’s not at all what they were asked. Look up the quote of the question. Nowhere do they say free healthcare to illegals. Trump tries to spin that. Guess you took the bait
Planned parenthood providing most the abortions is very different than what you said about them putting 90% of their resources into abortion. Nice try
Undocumented means illegal.
No...there isn't anything more--this is mudwhistle--there is not anything more to his agenda.
Leana Wen was the director of Planned-Parenthood and was removed over their refusal to discuss other options besides abortions. In a secret meeting with the board she was removed because of differences over the direction of the organization....she wanted them to be more health care related than political.
PPH focuses primarily on birth control and services that lead to abortions.....not in caring for the fetus till birth and possible adoption.
“I came to Planned Parenthood to run a national healthcare organization and to advocate for the broad range of public health policies that affect our patients’ health,” Wen wrote. “The new Board leadership has determined that the priority of Planned Parenthood moving forward is to double down on abortion rights advocacy.”
Opinion | What Wen’s Firing Reveals About Planned Parenthood
Nope....although your figure is quoted extensively..on anti-choice site and Right wing echo sites.
This is an anti-abortion site as well..but an honest on..as far as stats:
How much of Planned Parenthood's services are related to abortions?
"In terms of patients, Planned Parenthood served 2.4 million people last year and provided 328,348 abortions, according to its annual report. That works out to 13.7 percent of patients.
The national Planned Parenthood office did not respond to requests for an interview and little data is available outside of its annual reports, which consist of broad outlines. The reports don't include specifics such as all abortion-related visits, expenses or revenue.
Local numbers provide more detail.
The Arizona branch of Planned Parenthood produces its own report on the organization's activities in the state. Jodi Liggett, vice president of public affairs for the group, said of 33,181 Arizona patients 5,732 had an abortion in 2016.
That is about 17.27 percent of patients and 11 percent of all visits.
The remainder received services including cancer screenings, sexually transmitted infection testing and contraception. Nationally, STI testing and contraception were a part of more than 7 million visits.
Part of Herrod's argument stems from a disparity between the number of visits for an abortion and those for prenatal care or adoption referrals.
Nationally, Planned Parenthood provided 9,419 “prenatal services" and 2,889 adoption referrals in 2016. It's possible that some patients visited multiple times for these services, but it's unclear from the national organization's numbers. Assuming each visit was from a different person, prenatal services and adoption referrals combined for 0.5 percent of total visits.
"I think that it's fairly clear that the primary focus is to continue to promote abortion," Herrod said.
Liggett said that while Planned Parenthood is "proud to offer" abortions, they counsel patients about all options."
I don't have to listen to you.....cuz you're a racist asshole!!!.
I'm just using a typical leftist tactic....
