"In a recently released video produced by Live Action (liveaction.org), an undercover woman entered the Planned Parenthood clinic in Appleton under the false pretense that she was pregnant and seeking an abortion. In the video, she asked the staff and the doctor some questions about her pregnancy and received some startling answers.
The woman, who was reporting to be about eight weeks pregnant, asked about the heartbeat and was told by an employee, “Heart tones are at 7 weeks. Heart beat is when the fetus is active in the uterus – can survive – which is about 17 or 18 weeks.”
That would be news to most parents who have already heard their child’s heartbeat by eight weeks and, indeed, news to most doctors. TheCleveland Clinic says that the heartbeat can be heard as early as six weeks and is definitely audible by 11 weeks. If a parent hasn’t heard a heartbeat by 17 weeks, as the Planned Parenthood employee says, it’s a crisis.
The same Planned Parenthood employee tells the woman that “A fetus is what’s in your uterus right now. That is not a baby. A baby is what’s born at 40 weeks.” Parents of babies who were born prematurely would likely disagree. In the United States, babies are considered truly viable at about 24 week and some have survived when born earlier than that.
Beyond the dubious medical information that the Planned Parenthood clinic is dispensing, the salesmanship displayed would make a drug dealer blush. At one point, the doctor tells the woman, “You know, women die having babies.” When the woman asked if women die during abortions, he answered, “Yes, but it’s never happened to me.” "
We can thank our government for supporting entities such as the one mentioned above.
In 2005, it was reported that in the previous seven years Planned Parenthood had earned profits – or built a surplus – of more than $350 million. During that time, Planned Parenthood had been given of nearly $1.5 billion.
I would call that "subsidizing the abortion industry".
Planned Parenthood rakes in over a quarter BILLION dollars per year while bragging about being the nation's largest abortion provider. Now there's something to be proud of!
Abby Johnson, former PP director in Texas, said "The money wasn't in family planning, the money wasn't in prevention, the money was in abortion and so I had a problem with that," said Johnson.
