As Planned Parenthood spends millions to influence election, analysis reveals that “women’s health care” isn’t priority, abortion is

(September 14, 2016) — ARLINGTON, VA (September 14, 2016) — As Planned Parenthood spends $30 million in an attempt to influence the November elections and keep its taxpayer funding flowing, today Live Action released a video that shows voters how the abortion chain covers up a business model that is focused on abortion, not on women’s health care.

“To justify its half billion dollars in taxpayer funding, Planned Parenthood downplays abortion — falsely claiming that it only makes up three percent of its business — and instead plays up its cancer screenings and so-called ‘women’s health care.’  However, Planned Parenthood’s own numbers prove it’s an abortion corporation, focused on abortion, not on women’s health care.  Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform a single mammogram, and it performs less than two percent of all women’s cancer screenings in the United States, yet it commits over 30 percent of America’s abortions,” said Lila Rose, president and founder of Live Action.

(July 26, 2016) — Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of national pro-life organization Live Action, on the Harris County, Texas, district attorney dropping all remaining charges against David Daleiden in the Center for Medical Progress ‘s undercover video investigation exposing Planned Parenthood:

“Justice won out today. David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt have done a tremendous service on behalf of the most defenseless in our nation, exposing the barbaric practice of baby body parts trafficking — and they should be commended, not penalized. Court documents show the DA communicated with Planned Parenthood behind the scenes from the beginning and gave the abortion giant public relations cover for months. It’s now time for a special prosecutor to do what Planned Parenthood’s own attorney admitted the DA didn’t do: ask a grand jury to look into Planned Parenthood’s harvesting of baby body parts. ”
