If you can't afford birth control, then perhaps you should abstain from having sexual intercourse.

At the very least, it's violating any and every decision concerning a right to privacy.

i think most people know PP is a very bad organization. by bad i mean evil.




I am for organizations providing good health services to women... especially to those with too few funds to provide for themselves. I am not for an abortion mill passing itself off as such an organization.
A number of PPs don't even provide abortion.

But this is good news. I'm hopeful that other organizations that don't support murder on demand will step up and apply for the funds that Planned Parenthood is leaving on the table
IF this is true, then why do so many Planned Parenthoods not offer abortion?

If abortion is such big business for Planned Parenthood, then why do so many of their clinics not offer abortion?

What proportion of their clinics don't offer abortions or refer to other PP's for abortions?

The end result for me, donating more money annually to Planned Parenthood, less to other charities.

They do care. And they care a lot. and the LIKE it. It is a fact that women of means will always have access to safe abortions. Or women attached to men of means. Illegalizing abortion does not stop abortion. It merely denies access to safe abortions to poor women. And the GOP LIKES that.

I can tell you that, in the Philadelphia metro, two locations offer abortions out of nine. In the Pittsburgh metro, one out of six locations offers abortions.

It's a matter of logistics IIRC.
