Planned Parenthood’s ‘Truth Tour’ Does Not Mention the 332,278 Abortions It Performed in 2009
(CNSNews.com) – Planned Parenthood Federation of America is fighting a congressional attempt to end federal funding for the organization with a nationwide bus tour, dubbed the “Truth Tour.” The organization’s bright pink bus advertises various Planned Parenthood statistics and health data, but it does not include the number of abortions the organization has performed.
Planned Parenthood has launched this tour to counteract the call to reduce their federal funding. “The anti-women’s health extremists behind the push to bar Planned Parenthood health centers from federal funding are showing up in communities across the country March 7-10. The Planned Parenthood Truth Team — staff, patients, and supporters — are there to counter their lies with the truth and to demonstrate just how much support we have in communities and online.
Figures displayed on the sides of the Planned Parenthood bus include “4,000,000 STD (sexually transmitted diseases) Tests”; “1,800,00 Cancer Screenings”; “2,500,000 Birth Control Patients”; and “830,000 Breast Exams.” The main banner on the bus reads, “Stand With Planned Parenthood.” The statistics do not include the number of abortions performed at Planned Parenthood clinics, which were 332,278 in 2009, up by 8,270 from the 324,008 abortions performed in 2008, according to Planned Parenthood.
Why can’t they be truthful with their statistics, ones they seem so proud of by displaying them on a bus? At least be honest with us “anti-women health extremists” so we know exactly how many abortion services you provide in the name of “women’s reproductive health rights”.
