Bhitler: "They are each a separate service provided"

Dispensing a condom & an abortion are counted EQUALLY as a service.

That's how Banned Parenthood arrives at "abortions are only 3% of our services."

41% of Planned Barrenhood's operating income is from abortions.$Cha-Ching$

You & your ilk hang on that 3% stat like it's the gospel of your pagan abortuary temple.

Then what WAS your point? Just posting random, meaningless facts?
I ended my post with my point: Planned Parenthood lies when begging not to have fed funds revoked...."we give mammograms"....but, they don't provide mammograms.

Mammograms are not one of the "services" it provides.

You understood my point so clearly that it caused you to go into a rant. "My doctor blah blah blah..."

You're welcome....

These absolute idiots. Here's a newsflash for you Morons (No Relevance, Witless, StupidBlue) your assumption that 100% of all women who walk into a PP clinic are PREGNANT just makes you look like asses. Almost half of PP clinics don't even PERFORM abortions.
:Sigh:

I said 98% OF THE PREGNANT WOMEN who walk into PP get an abortion.

I've already presented evidence that 10% of clients visiting Planned Parenthood get abortions.

Follow the conversation.

Me: "98% of those women who are pregnant & visiting Planned Parenthood..."

Bhitler: "You said 100% of women who go to Planned Parenthood are pregnant."

That number is in the links I provided.
98% of pregnant women who enter Planned Parenthood get an abortion.
If you don't like that number, bitch at Planned Parenthood - no me.
I think that number indicates extreme, unmittigated bias ... and is pathetic.
One, your biased links are not proof.

Two, even THEY didn't say that 98% of all women who walk into a PP clinic have abortions. Learn to read, you stupid thing.

I understand the difference between Communion and transubstantiation.

Transubstantiation is anti-Bible. I'd go as far as saying it's anti-Christ.

No matter what I show you, you're not going to look at it objectively. I've been down this road with a few others, over the years.

You know, I've watched the video where they supposedly lied about doing mammos, and that's not what was said. What was ACTUALLY said, is that the do breast cancer screening. And they do. Breast exams ARE breast cancer screening. They are the first screening done on any woman in any woman's clinic, or OB/GYN.

Yes, I knew where you were going with that, hence my refutation. I've never had an OB/GYN who did mammos at their office, just the first line of defense, breast exams. I've always been referred out to a hospital, or imaging center for a mammo.

I correctly stated that Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms.
Now.
What were you bloviating about?
I think they refer women to where they can get a mammogram for free or low cost.

PP also offers men's health services --

checkups when you have a reproductive/sexual health problem
jock itch — exam and treatment
male infertility — screening and referrals
urinary tract infections — testing and treatment

Some even offer vasectomy.

10% of Planned Parenthood clients receive abortion. As I've already mentioned, PP "BUNDLES" services intentionally to skew the numbers.
Liberal NPR ate crow over this issue:
"Conan: Finally, several of you wrote during yesterday’s show about PP, about the conflict over what percentage of the agency’s clients receive abortions. We’ve asked NPR’s healh policy correspondent Julie Rovner to join us again. Julie, always nice to have with you us.… And we heard two figures from opposing sides yesterday, 3% and 10%, who’s right?
Rovner: Well, the conflict is really that PP keeps its statistics according to the percent of those services that are provided, not according to how many people get what. So it turns out that there are – that indeed, abortions are 3% of the services provided, although – and that was what, I think, Sarah Stoesz from PP kind of MISSPOKE when she said it was 3% of patients who come in get abortions.
It is actually a little bit closer to the 10% that Marjorie Dannenfesler suggested, because there are about 3 million patients who come in. There are about 300,000 abortions provided."
http://www.jillstanek.com/2011/03/npr-fact-ch...
OMG, patients get multiple services from a health provider!

The numbers are quite simple, in 2011, 3% of the services were for abortions. No one is in dispute about that, right?

Now you can go back to calling them abortion mills, you wacko-loons.

I know a few women who knew or thought they were pregnant and were referred to PP. They said PP gives them a pregnancy test to confirm pregnancy, even if she's already done that. All the women I know decided to carry to term. They are low-income folks. PP gave them the documentation which confirmed pregnancy, and gave them a list of pre-natal providers and referred them to Social Services for MediCal.

That was the extent of their dealings with PP.

Oh, and I guess the PP counselor asked them a few questions, including "do you feel safe with the father?".

I don't see any harm in their services.

Neither do I.

These people don't know how percentages work. OR "bundling" for that matter.

It's sad.
