I want to show you why and how Planned Parenthood continues to cause such devastation in the lives of women. Planned Parenthood receives funding through our taxes, and with these funds they harm our wives, daughters, and sisters. They do so by how we Christians vote. Using a statistic from a recent George Barna study, it is plain to see that voters do not see abortion as an issue that would cause them to change who they are going to elect.
When asked if abortion is important in whom they vote for, most Christians vote just like atheist…how shameful.
Issues That Influences Candidate Selection:
Abortion: Atheist 20%, Catholics 25%, Protestant 35%
This means that 75% of Catholics and 65% of Protestants do not care if their candidate of choice is for abortion.
If you are a Christian, read this excerpt from an article by Amy Johnson on Planned Parenthood and rethink your vote. She should know, she was their employee of the year in 2008. And, as a Christian you should know that God is watching our inaction as well as our action.
Planned Parenthood’s bottom line is numbers. And, with abortion as its primary money-maker, that means implementing a quota. I know this is true because I worked at one of their Texas clinics for 8 years, two as the clinic director.
Though 98 percent of Planned Parenthood’s services to pregnant women are abortion, Planned Parenthood and its political allies have sworn up and down that taxpayer dollars do not to pay for abortion. But of course they do. Planned Parenthood gets one-third of its entire budget from taxpayer funding and performed more than 650,000 abortions between 2008 and 2009.
It also claims to help reduce the number of abortions. Not only is this not what Planned Parenthood actually accomplishes, but its goal couldn’t be more opposite. As a Planned Parenthood clinic manager, I was directed to double the number of abortions our clinic performed in order to drive up revenue.
Planned Parenthood has found other ways to increase revenue at the expense of women’s safety. Abortion consultations are now often done without a doctor in the room through online “telemedicine.” Abortion is a severely traumatic and potentially dangerous procedure. Even as Planned Parenthood's 2008 Employee of the Year, I saw this aggressive push toward more “efficient” telemedicine as risky.
I joined Planned Parenthood because I wanted to help poor women with real health care needs. I still do -- that’s why I left. Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about women’s health care needs, it cares about abortion.
Abby Johnson worked at Planned Parenthood's Bryan, Texas, clinic for eight years and was clinic director for more than two years.
