To liberals who believe that we’re overpopulated with Blacks and Hispanics, the boast of Planned Parenthood is great news. I mean, it’s progress, but there’s still work to be done.
At the same time, these potential Democrat voters are being killed through abortion. That’s why there’s such a push for illegal immigration. They need a flood of Hispanics to come across the border freely, being promised by the Democrats that all their dreams will come true. They’ll make up for all the babies being aborted in this country.
Planned Parenthood clinics did 327,653 abortions in its fiscal year 2014 (which ran from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014), according to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s newly released annual report.
That works out to an average of 37 abortions per hour or nearly 1 every 90 seconds.
Planned Parenthood also received $528.4 million from government grants and reimbursements, which equaled 41 percent of its revenue.
The federal government is prohibited from paying directly for abortions through Title X family planning grants and reimbursements; however, federal funds do pay for Planned Parenthood operations, including the clinics where abortions are performed.
The 327,653 abortions Planned Parenthood reports that it did in its organizational fiscal 2014 exceeds by 487 the number of abortions it did the previous year.
The report also reveals that Planned Parenthood actually provided fewer contraceptives — 3,577,348 patients in fiscal 2014 compared to 3,724,558 in fiscal 2013.
Liberals call abortion “reproductive health.” How is killing an unborn child “healthy?” You have people like pro-choice Nicki Minaj saying that the abortion she had as a teenager “haunted her all her life.” I imagine that haunting is similar to what someone would feel when he (or she) murders another person. After all, abortion is murder. Of course that’s going to cause some major mental issues with the mother.
LifeSiteNews reported on numerous studies done showing the link between abortions and mental illness:
A new metastudy performed by researchers at the University of Siena seems to show a clear link between abortion and subsequent mental illnesses like depression, substance abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), leading the study’s authors to call for additional research dedicated to the issue.
Dr. Carlo V. Bellini and Guiseppe Buonocore analyzed 30 studies of post-abortive women published between 1995 and 2011 to find out whether the data supported a link between abortion and mental illness, especially depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD and substance abuse.
They found that in 13 studies, abortion was found to be a greater risk factor than childbirth for developing at least one of those disorders, while only one study found childbirth to be more likely to lead to later mental problems. An additional five studies showed no difference in outcome, but among those five studies, at least one included among its post-abortion statistics women who had chosen selective reduction of multiples and whose desired remaining babies survived.
The study also compared post-abortive women to women who had experienced miscarriages, and found that while “short-term anxiety and depression were higher in the miscarriage group … long-term anxiety and depression were present only in the abortion group.”
“[F]etal loss seems to expose women to a higher risk for mental disorders than childbirth,” the researchers wrote, and “some studies show that abortion can be considered a more relevant risk factor than miscarriage.”
The researchers concluded by saying “more research is needed in this field.”
A similar metastudy conducted in 2011 by Priscilla K. Coleman, Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Bowling Green State University, examined 22 studies on post-abortive women and found that women who underwent an abortion experienced an 81% increased risk of mental health problems.
The study also found that almost 10% of all women’s mental health problems are directly linked to abortion.
According to Coleman’s study, abortion was associated with a 34% increased risk for anxiety disorders; 37% greater risk of depression; 110% greater risk of alcohol abuse and 220% greater risk of marijuana use/abuse. Abortion was also linked with a 155% greater risk of attempting to commit suicide.
Healthy? Eh, not so much.
Abortion proponents will likely say that abortion is well worth all the depression and suicide that might follow. Besides, they have drugs for those sorts of things that numb you.
