I just signed two petitions - one to defund Planned Parenthood and one to establish personhood at conception which would end abortion. Planned Parenthood is guilty of shoddy services, killing the unborn and misleading and sexualizing the youth, which needs to be trained Christian virtues, so they can live godly family lives.

You can sign those petitions too by using the links provided with this video:

More than likely these crack hoes are on welfare. Instead of abortion, if they want to keep their access card, make them get sterilized. Why should they even be having babies, who don't even know who their father is, when they are on welfare?

Are you really that naive to believe that the Crackhoes, and welfare mommies are the ones who utilize the services of abortion clinics?

A welfare mother or druggie views the child as a "resource", an asset a way for her to recieve additional "bennies".

This is 2011 not 1950! This isnt about a poor person obtaining an abortion because they know they cant afford! In todays society they can afford(taxpayers paying).

This is about young "goal" oriented women who are failing to step up and act in a responsible manner.

The majority of women seeking abortions are more often than not young women who have career plans or a teen who screwed up and got pregnant.

Theyre selfish and have only their "goals" in mind. If the child doesnt fit into the picture, they adopt them out or they abort them.

Here is the actual statistics:

Abortion services account for about 3 percent of Planned Parenthoodís activities. Thatís less than cancer screening and prevention (16 percent), STD testing for both men and women (35 percent), and contraception (also 35 percent). About 80 percent of Planned Parenthoodís users are over age 20, and 75 percent have incomes below 150 percent of the poverty line. Planned Parenthood itself estimates it prevents more than 620,000 unintended pregnancies each year, and 220,000 abortions. Itís also worth noting that federal law already forbids Planned Parenthood from using the funds it receives from the government for abortions.

Thank God someone actually researches and posts acurate information. Thank you Miller. These idiots fall to understand that it is a seperate federal law that forbids the use of federal funds to be used for abortions. So basicly what they have done is remove all funding for womens health services and education and prevention of pregnancies. Good job!

As usual Miller is giving a lot of false statistics. Planned Parenthood counts the number of services performed and then says abortion is only three percent of its activities. All services are counted, therefore if you stop in and they take your blood pressure and give you a few condoms, then they have performed six or seven services. Each year they kill over 300,000 babies, about half the population of Allentown. They receive federal money of about $950 per abortion, although they say they use the federal money for the other services. I really don't care what they do, but I don't want them doing it with our tax money.

So? They count all services. They aren't being "dishonest" by counting all services. Does a fast food place inventory all of its cups? Of course. It's a business. No big deal.

They receive NO federal funding for abortions. As per the Hyde Amendment, it's against the LAW. Thus, they are NOT performing them with your "tax money".

People really need to get their facts straight.

One less abortion clinic to worry about, what a great day. All PP needs to do is simply stop the abortions but they would rather kill the innocent then admit the harm and damage it does to women.

You need to take off the rose colored glasses. When they get federal money it goes to abortions, there is no way it can be kept separate. If killing babies is so important to you libs why don't you use your own money instead of glomming off the taxpayers.

You mean from the way Glenn Beck interprets the reports of PP. Your hero George W. Bush's administration conducted an independent investigation of PP, finding your "statistics" to be incorrect.

a) Actually, it does NOT go to abortions. They use private donations for abortions. Using federal funds is AGAINST THE LAW, and they are AUDITED. Of course it can be kept separate! Obviously you have no clue how grant funds, etc. are allocated by non-profits. Pay attention.

b) I'm not a "lib", I'm a moderate conservative. I don't need or use PP. I have plenty of my own money and wonderful health insurance coverage.

c) PP *prevents* many unwanted pregnancies by providing a low-cost reproductive health care service in the form of contraceptive prescription and distribution. It also provides STD screening and treatment, mammographies, pre-natal care, adoption referrals, etc.

Educate yourself, please.

You've got to consider who your responding to. Your last sentence means nothing to the duke. Why educate himself when he can make it up or repeat whats on faux/fox, it's easier!

"abortion is needed in this country."

What a horrible sentence that is! Aren't I proud! Shouldn't that prove how we have gone down a bad path if now we "need" to kill unborn babies? The crackwhore doesn't get te abortion. It's the high school girl too afraid to tell mom & dad she got knocked up and PP makes it too easy for her to go there without their knowledge or consent. Privacy for a 16 yr old is a joke! I had a friend in HS who used me as her emergency contact bc she didn't want er parents knowing she went their to go on the pill. Yes, she was trying to do the right by getting on contraceptives, but why all the secrecy and why should a 16 be allowed to do this by herself? A parent should be a must. PP is a joke. It is a way to make it ok for teens to act out with little to no recourse.
And no it isn't just high school girls...but I hope you get my point. PP needs to stop allowing young girls to make decisions they are not ready or equipped to make. I can't remember how many times I would here, "well just go to PP to get the pill. Your mom won't ever know." And that's a good thing???? Not in my book. We are sending too many mixed messages to kids and then we wonder why abortions "need" to happen. Maybe if the 16 yr old wasn't able to go get pills she is not mature enough to take then maybe she would have had the guts to tell the guy no. But instead she gets the pills, forget to take them on random days, gets pregnant, hides that, gets an abortion and hides that too....and the parent is able to be left completely out of the loop. What a load of crap that is!
Good ridance PP!!
