Planned Parenthood Abortion v. Adoption Referrals

by Gerard Nadal, Ph.D. | Washington, DC | | 7/12/11 11:09 AM

The picture tells the story. These are the people who, along with NARAL, are attacking Crisis Pregnancy Centers all over the nation. Saving babies is bad for business.

A ten year-old girl has seen right through these people, as only children can. Click here for the eloquence of a young girl’s purity.

(Editor’s Note: The adoption figures come from 2008, and the 2009 figures in the Planned Parenthood annual report are worse.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America posted on its website what it calls its service numbers for 2009. This document, dated February 2011, shows Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide did 332,278 surgical abortions or abortions using the dangerous RU 486 abortion during in 2009.

The new document the abortion organization posted shows Planned Parenthood provided prenatal services to merely 7,021 women and referred only 977 women for adoption services. These numbers were a 25 percent drop in prenatal care clients and a whopping 59 percent decline in adoption referrals from the 2,405 adoption referrals in 2008. The abortion business helped only 9,433 prenatal clients in 2008, down substantially from the 11,000 women it provided prenatal care to in 2007 — showing health care given to pregnant woman has fallen substantially over the years.

As a result, 97.6 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood are sold abortions while less than 2.4 percent of pregnant women received non-abortion services including adoption and prenatal care. That’s up from 96.5 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood getting abortions in 2008.)

Legislative Alert

H.R. 358 - Protect Life Act Passed!

"The House of Representatives passed a measure Thursday evening in a 251-172 vote to amend the federal health care bill to include protections against federal tax funding of abortion, as well as strengthened conscience rights for health care providers....

(but, unfortunately)

...The bill is not expected to even receive a vote in the Democrat-controlled Senate, and also faces a veto threat from President Obama."-

See how your congressman voted:

Pro-Choice Propaganda of the Month

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi regarding H.R. 358:

During today's debate, opponents of the bill repeatedly claimed that it would allow hospitals to deny women "emergency" abortions.  In reality, the bill does not change the longstanding federal law in question, called EMTALA, which requires that in an "emergency" a hospital must do its best to stabilize both the pregnant mother and her "unborn child" (which is the term used in the statute).  The Protect Life Act allows federal funding of an abortion required to save a mother's life. - NRLC

The bill has provisions to allow abortion funding in cases of rape, insect, or the life of the mother. Here is the excerpt from the text of the bill:

(c) Limitation on Abortion Funding-

      `(1) IN GENERAL- No funds authorized or appropriated by this Act (or an amendment made by this Act), including credits applied toward qualified health plans under section 36B of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 or cost-sharing reductions under section 1402 of this Act, may be used to pay for any abortion or to cover any part of the costs of any health plan that includes coverage of abortion, except--
        `(A) if the pregnancy is the result of an act of rape or incest; or
        `(B) in the case where a pregnant female suffers from a physical disorder, physical injury, or physical illness that would, as certified by a physician, place the female in danger of death unless an abortion is performed, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself.

As far as the conscience protections, like the Hyde-Weldon Amendment, it merely strengthens the conscience rights of health care workers and institutions from discrimination if they reject abortion training, procedures, or referrals.

(g) Nondiscrimination on Abortion-

      `(1) NONDISCRIMINATION- A Federal agency or program, and any State or local government that receives Federal financial assistance under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act), may not subject any institutional or individual health care entity to discrimination, or require any health plan created or regulated under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) to subject any institutional or individual health care entity to discrimination, on the basis that the health care entity refuses to--
        `(A) undergo training in the performance of induced abortions;
        `(B) require or provide such training;
        `(C) perform, participate in, provide coverage of, or pay for induced abortions; or
        `(D) provide referrals for such training or such abortions.

As the House Minority Leader, she should know about EMTALA which H.R. 358 does not override.
