Planned Parenthood claims that 97% of its work is unrelated to abortion. In Planned Bullyhood, Karen Handel explains why that is misleading:
Planned Parenthood distorts its numbers through the way it defines a “service.” In calculating its claim that 97 percent of its services are not abortion-related, Planned Parenthood counts the distribution of a single condom as a service, just like an abortion is counted as a service.
So in a given day, a clinic could give away 97 condoms, perform three abortions, and say that abortion is a minuscule part of their work. However one plays with the numbers, Planned Parenthood has an annual budget in excess of $1 billion – with millions from federal, state, and local government funding. In other words, this enormous slaughter of human beings is being paid for by the taxpayers of the United States.
