Abortion apologist Amanda Marcotte: Planned Parenthood needs abortion to financially survive

… [P]roviding abortions is part of the mission of Planned Parenthood, and they do make it a priority. It’s a necessary service, after all. I think some times that point gets lost in all the discussion of the 97% of their services that aren’t abortion.

The other reason I suspect these regulations would harm PP’s ability to keep as many clinics open to offer non-abortion services as they currently do is that a complete shut-down of abortion services would create a cash flow problem for them. Abortions are 3% of the actual services Planned Parenthood provides, but they constitute a larger chunk of their income, around 15% nationally. Which makes sense; abortions simply cost more than Pap smears and birth control pills, and Planned Parenthood provides a huge chunk of all the abortions in the country….

  1. At least she’s admitting that abortions are PP’s bread and butter.

    Now she just needs to trash that disingenuous “only 3% of services” statistic.

  2. I hear Ms Marcotte saying PP would desire abortion to be safe and legal, but it in no way should it be rare.  By her own words, PP gains financially from abortion, which requires unwanted pregnancies; and contrary to their denial, PP stands to gain financially by encouraging young people to be sexually active.

  3. Every time I read ANYTHING by Marcotte, I become even MORE entrenched in the pro-life movement.
    Also, that “3%” argument is nonsense. It’s also meaningless. What if a daycare center was all, “We only abuse 3% of the children in our care.” Or if a restaurant was like, “We only poison 3% of our patrons.” Ridiculous. “We only kill 3% of these people, so it’s not that bad.”
    I’m glad Marcotte is so honest (and also so…DELUDED! holy moly), because she just shows how sick and how pro-abortion Planned Parenthood really is. It’s not about women’s “health.” It’s not about “freedom.” It’s about killing babies, that’s what it’s about, folks.

  4. She’s repeating the talking point that pro-life orgs against Planned Parenthood have been making for years.  Odd.

  5. From Slate:
    “Depriving the women of Virginia of 22 clinics providing this necessary service is a straight-up human rights violation. Pro-choicers have gotten away from talking about abortion in those terms, but we really should.”
     
    Bwhahahahaha!  Yep, every human must have the right to kill their offspring.

  7. Why trust your birth control to an abortionist (who profit when BC fails)?
    We’ve saying this for years and PP supporters just can’t seem to connect the dots.  Now if only they would admit that PP does not need taxpayer funds – it can make it on abortion and “pledge-a-protester”.

  8. I love to watch you guys spin…. That ok I will explain it to you…
     
    Yes abortion is only about 3% of what PP does but it does account for about 15% of total income. Why? Well as you all know PP receives federal funding for everything except abortion. That’s why birth control is free, and most other services are next to free.
     
    You see the government pays for them… Abortions are paid for by insurance or out of the clients pocket but on a sliding scale depending on your financial situation.
     
    For the 200th time Planned Parenthood is a NON-PROFIT ORGNIZATION. Any “Profit” made at the end of each quarter is reinvested into the organization like construction on new facilities, new equipment, or special funds set up to help bring down the cost of the services not covered by insurance or the federal government.  It is all spent to better service their clients. There are NO SHARE HOLDERS to answer to or make a profit for… No stocks to worry about the price of…
     
    Your conspiracy theories are weak at best… Do your own research!

    Don’t forget the high executive and abortionist salaries.   Plenty of the “profit” goes into the pockets of executives and abortionists.

  10. Actually no one knows where all the money goes because they haven’t actually reported it to the government.

  11. Biggz, we’re not spinning anything. You pro-aborts do ALL the spinning. Maybe that’s why none of you can see clearly. Y’all must be really dizzy.

  12. Could Amanda possibly look any more joyful?  She looks so positively delighted about life!

    Seriously though, there is that vacant stare again that seems to be so common among the proaborts.

  13. It’s the same look that professors have when they are trying to look neutral despite the sheer tedium of having to listen to someone spout inane nonsense rather than facts, science or accuracy.
    And sometimes it’s just because people are listening intently to what someone is saying.
    Or they’re bored but need to pretend to be paying attention. She could be fighting a yawn.

    Yes, new facilities and equipment so they can perform more abortions. Yes, special funds set up to bring down the cost of the services not covered by insurance or the federal government i.e. abortion so more women can afford to have their children killed. You can’t deny that they want to increase the numbers of abortions they perform.
