Planned Parenthood takes credit for Ohio’s abortion rate decline

Planned Parenthood Sign

Tara Broderick, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Northeast Ohio said in response to a report that Ohio’s abortions has fallen 3% in 2009:

“We would like to think that we contribute to this.”

She also stated about the declining abortion rate that:

“The trend is encouraging news”

Oh course, Planned Parenthood has never stated that lowering abortion rates is an organizational goal. In fact, it is a bit surprising that the Planned Parenthood’s mission statement doesn’t say anything about abortion. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States performing over 300,000 annually and 134 abortions for every adoption referral.

In short, Planned Parenthood says that unborn children do not deserve the right to life. Why then does their Ohio chapter say a lower abortion rate is “encouraging news”? If something isn’t worthy of the right to live, how then is not killing that thing “encouraging news”?
