The largest provider of abortions in the United States, Planned Parenthood has given a Colorado abortion clinic an award for "exceeding abortion visits [in the] first half of FY12 compared to the first half of FY13." The appalling incident affirms that Planned Parenthood values abortion as its most important business.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - A photo of the award was taken by a former employee who saw it posted on a bulletin board in Denver that displays awards earned by satellite clinics.
"This Certificate Awarded to Aurora for Exceeding Abortion Visits First Half of FY12 Compared to First Half FY 13," the notice reads.
Let's pray together so that people everywhere will make the right decision --
The Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, the second largest Planned Parenthood facility in the United States, gave the award to its Aurora abortion clinic.
The award seemingly confirms that Planned Parenthood clinics are given abortion "quotas" to meet and that the Aurora clinic had "exceeded" expectations.
Planned Parenthood is currently engaged in a multi-year public relations effort to downplay its promotion of abortion-on-demand. The organization is highlighting its other services, such as supporting LGBT members of the community and distributing abortion-inducing "emergency contraception."
Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions while collecting $540.6 million in taxpayer funds at the federal, state, and local level in 2012. This figure is actually down from 2011 levels, when Planned Parenthood performed a record-setting 333,964 abortions and collected $542.4 million in government revenue.
Prenatal services dropped by nearly one-third, or 32 percent during that single year. Cancer screenings decreased by 14 percent since last year, and 39 percent since 2009.
In all, "abortions made up 93.8 percent of Planned Parenthood's pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5.6 percent (19,506) and 0.6 percent (2,197)" in 2012 respectively, the Susan B. Anthony List noted in a fact sheet.
Former Planned Parenthood director and pro-life advocate Abby Johnson wrote about the award certificate at her blog, "And Then There Were None," this week, "Ever since I left Planned Parenthood, I have been talking about the abortion quotas that are established inside abortion facilities.
"Many abortion supporters refused to believe it, citing that surely Planned Parenthood wants abortion to be safe, legal and RARE. If they want something to be RARE, they certainly wouldn't have quotas, right?"
