Planned Parenthood often says abortion constitutes only 3% of its services. They don't often mention that abortion revenue makes up 51% of clinic income. Which of these figures more accurately reflects how important abortion is to their bottom line?

No. This is an important issue, and this poll is correcting a common misrepresentation.

Drop it? Sure lets drop the fact that planned parenthood has been exposed for what they truly are.

As I said on a previous poll, I find it difficult to be either pro-life or pro-choice. But Planned Parenthood shouldn't be supported by the state any longer.

Yes, really. You may be opposed to the practice, and I very much believe that, in general, legality does not make something right, but PP is not illegally trafficking human body parts. It is donating fetal tissue.

This may seem like a matter of semantics to you, but it's not. You can have a moral opposition to this, and I can respect that, but if you can't contest this on its own merit, you have no business contesting this at all.

Because abortion isn't just a less preferable option. It's intrinsically wrong.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

What other massive human rights abuses do we take that approach to?
We won't ever stop human sex trafficking so we should just work to mitigate it and make it safe.

There is no legitimate reason to subsidize PP. Community Health Centers provide *more* health, to *more* ppl, w/o resorting to illegal trafficking when providing those services. PP will not go under w/o Fed subsidization. Other reasons, perhaps...

Federal funds are fungible. Which means, if they receive federal funds, once in hand, they can use it for whatever they choose & document their use however they choose. The Feds know it. PP knows it. WE know it.

I guess I don't understand the relevance.

If they cannot use gov money for abortions, but they can for everything else they do, is it really a surprise that abortion services, paid by the patient, would make up most of their income?

RJ, quantify "squat," because I think you may be outside your area of expertise here.

"How about merely supporting PP's prevention measures?"

That's a strawman since no one has a problem with their services outside of abortions. Focus, RJ! You jump around more than a frog.

I'd prefer humans not be sacrificed on altar of convenience, particularly when same research can be done as effectively/or better on adults. Therapeutic abortion - where DR has determined mother's life in danger - is one thing.

Becuz one wasn't responsible in the first place - there are multiple forms of birth control that doesn't require strategically crushing the heads of the unborn to traffic in research "specimens."

Well of course their revenue is not going to be proportional. You think they made 51% off of condom sales?

Asking if it's cost prohibitive is meaningless, esp in this country. Sure we could tax people 90% and have the money to do anything. I'm asking when is enough money? If you could get as much money as required, what figure would it be? Tell me.

I guess if people would support prevention measures more, PP abortions would be performed less often. I'm not sure why you guys don't focus your attentions there.

PP doesn't release this figure, but they do release the number of abortions they commit, the average cost of each abortion, and the total revenue for clinic services. It's just a matter of multiplication and division to get to the % of income.

He got that number from UNICEF. He's talking about the child mortality rate in developing countries.
It has absolutely nothing to do with the legality of abortion in the U.S.
He just throws that number out for shock value.
