Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has suggested she wants credit for the documented decline in U.S. abortions. But as Americans United for Life exposes in its report, “The Leviathan: How Planned Parenthood has Become Abortion, Inc.,” the abortion plan Richards engineered for her affiliates has nothing to do with less, and everything to do with more.
It is no accident that while abortions are down nearly everywhere in the country Planned Parenthood’s abortion business continues to grow. Planned Parenthood has a clear, intentional strategy to take over the U.S. abortion market.
Part of Planned Parenthood’s strategic shift includes building bigger facilities, “mega-centers” where technicians perform abortions at higher, deadlier rates. Since 2004, Planned Parenthood has opened these clinics, which are 10,000 square feet or greater in size, in at least 19 cities in 14 states.
