The crisis of abortion is enormous. A tragedy of epidemic proportions, abortion is the leading cause of death in the world taking an estimated 40 million lives every year. 40 Days for Life is a world-wide campaign to educate, build awareness, and pray for God’s intervention in bringing about an end to abortion.

Following is a list of deceptions propagated by Planned Parenthood (PP) followed by videos with the truth by the Center for Medical Progress; obtained from Alliance Defending Freedom website.
- Deception 1: PP provides essential Care women can’t get anywhere else.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDHPq6q-RWY (36 seconds)
TRUTH: There are more than 13,000 low cost clinics that women can chose instead of PP. Most of these clinics, which outnumber PP nearly 20:1, offer far more health services than PP. On average these clinics are less than 5 miles from PP locations. To find out where to get your care, go to http://getyourcare.org/ .
- Deception 2: If Planned Parenthood loses funding, other clinics will be overwhelmed with new patients.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgOQ6kwgxvM (51 seconds)
TRUTH: By PP own numbers barely 2% of women step into one of their facilities. If you believe PP isn’t double counting, which they’ve been known to do, they see 2.7 million people per year. So if each person went to one of the other (more than) 13,000 low cost clinics, it would mean an extra 1 person to each clinic every other day. These clinics could expand if they had access to the resources PP has (> $500,000 government funding/year).
- Deception 3: Defunding Planned Parenthood would actually increase abortion.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR9-jZFmoEo (52 seconds)
TRUTH: PP basis for this claim; if defunded, PP won’t be able to give out birth control. Untrue; they can give out BC whether or not they get federal funding. PP was defunded in TX in 2012. Did abortion sky-rocket? No. In 2012, there were 68,298 abortions; in 2013 there were 63,849 (6.5% fewer abortions).
- Deception 4: Planned Parenthood wants to reduce abortion.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EnItPOgQfOo (46 seconds)
TRUTH: PP is growing in market share. From 2006-13, as number of abortions decreased dramatically, PP went from committing 20% of all abortions to 32% of all abortions; 60% increase in market share. In 2006, PP committed about 290,000 abortions; in 2013 327,000 abortions.
- Deception 5: Planned Parenthood cares for poor women in rural and underserved areas.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FlDv5JG3YT8 (48 seconds)
TRUTH: PP is concentrated in large cities and metro areas; exodus from rural areas. Opting to build abortion mega centers in big cities where the abortion customers are, not where the women in need are.
- Deception 6: Only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s services are abortion (Part 1).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fICno5puzy8 (47 seconds)
TRUTH: PP claims that, of its 2.7 million customers, nearly 328,000 got abortions (2014); over 12%; 94% of pregnant women who go to PP get abortions; PP gets about 1/3 of clinic income from abortion; PP is in the business of creating abortion customers.
- Deception 7: Only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s services are abortion. (Part 2).
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1z8Bv6LA_x8 (58 seconds)
TRUTH: PP touts 3% number to disguise the truth that abortion is their business. Where do they get the number? Woman comes in for an abortion. She may also get an STD test, pap test, birth control and pain medication; each one of these counts as a service. So, if the woman only came for an abortion, the actual abortion would only count for 20% of the services. Like Rich Lowry points out; it’s like major league baseball saying that it sells about 20 million hot dogs and plays 2, 430 games in a season, so baseball is only 0.12% of what they do.
- Deception 8: Planned Parenthood is the good-hearted non-profit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcvwigLGN5I (55 seconds)
TRUTH: PP is a billion dollar corporation; reported profits of $750 million over last 10 years, during which it has taken $4 billion “in corporate welfare from Americans’ paychecks”. PP has more than a billion dollars in assets; subsidized by the American people. PP gives millions of dollars to politicians who will keep giving our money to PP.
- Deception 9: Planned Parenthood is relentless in screening for breast and cervical cancer.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMeCbR4j8to (45 seconds)
TRUTH: Between 2006 and 2013, PP cut breast cancer screening in half. During that same period, PP’s revenue grew 28% and taxpayer funding increased by 57%. PP does zero mammograms.
- Deception 10: Planned Parenthood is needed to reduce sexually transmitted infections.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LK2FzZumCIY (41 seconds)
TRUTH: Would you think that where ever there is a PP that STDs would be virtually eradicated? Of the 25 cities with highest rates of HIV in US, all have at least 1 PP. In cities 2 (New Orleans), 3 (Baton Rouge), and
4 (Jackson, MS), they are the ONLY cities in those states where there IS a PP.
- Deception 11: Redirecting funds from Planned Parenthood to trustworthy care providers would create a women’s health apocalypse.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jWoCH6Nig4 (51 seconds)
TRUTH: There are more than 13,000 low cost care centers in America that are eligible for federal funds; see http://getyourcare.org/ . No one is suggesting cutting funds for women’s health; just PP. PP would not have to shut down if they lose federal funding. They recorded a profit of $127 million in 2014; why not use that profit and their billion dollars in assets to provide care for women instead of funding politicians and building abortion mega centers?
