MYTHBUSTING: Women do not need Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood execs and pro-abortion Democrats like Nancy Pelosi claim that attempts to defund Planned Parenthood represent a “Republican war on women.”

Pelosi went so far as to state that “Planned Parenthood clinics are often one of the few affordable health care options for many women.”  This isn’t even remotely true.

Defunding PP won't hurt women

There are only 665 Planned Parenthood clinics in the United States. These clinics provide abortions, plus some limited health care to women. None of them does mammograms and only a handful offer prenatal care.

By contrast, there are 13,500 non-PP clinics in the United States that provide comprehensive health care to women without doing abortions.

There are only two kinds of women who will be hurt if we stop giving tax dollars to Planned Parenthood: Planned Parenthood executives and Democrat politicians. Since both of these groups is in the six-figures-a-year income group, I couldn’t care less.
