Planned Parenthood thinks abortion coverage is in the healthcare homestretch

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards sent the following email this afternoon, which appears to breathe a sigh of relief – the worst is over, the other side has just one more hurdle to jump to ensure public funded abortion coverage is included in nationalized healthcare.

Remain calm about Stupak

MI pro-life Democrat Congressman (and co-chair of the Congressional Pro-Life Caucus) Bart Stupak has been a real hero on trying to nix public funding of abortion in healthcare. I can’t imagine how we’d stand a chance of stopping it without him. That’s why I didn’t jump on Stupak when

Well, take a look who was at Nancy Pelosi’s press conference this morning when she unveiled her version of nationalized healthcare – with no abortion exclusion and plans not to allow any. How appropriate that infamous late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart should be on hand to cheer Pelosi on…

At Carafem, staff members plan to greet clients with warm teas, comfortable robes and a matter-of-fact attitude.

“We don’t want to talk in hushed tones,” said Carafem president Christopher Purdy. “We use the A-word.”…

Because Carafem will offer only the abortion pill, not vacuum aspiration or other surgical procedures, prospective clients must be no more than 10 weeks pregnant….

After receiving counseling and some basic tests, Carafem clients will take an initial pill at the clinic. Purdy’s team expects to get them in and out quickly, within about 60 minutes. They will be sent home with a second set of pills to take the next day. The second dose induces the abortion, which resembles a miscarriage, typically within six hours.

By offering only pharmaceutical abortions, Purdy says, he can avoid purchasing expensive surgical equipment and keep prices low for clients. The average pharmaceutical abortion cost about $500 in the United States in 2011, Guttmacher figures show; Purdy plans to charge around $400.

Another striking aspect of the project is the design: The clinic will have wood floors and a natural wood tone on the walls that recalls high-end salons such as Aveda. Appointments, offered evenings and weekends, can be booked online or via a 24-hour hotline.

“It was important for us to try to present an upgraded, almost spa-like feel,” said Melissa S. Grant, vice president of health services for the clinic.

If the project is successful, Purdy says, he hopes to expand his model to other states.

“It’s fresh, it’s modern, it’s clean, it’s caring,” he said. “That’s the brand we’re trying to create.”
