More Medication Abortions Than Surgical Abortions?

Planned Parenthood has always been at the forefront of killing babies through medication abortions (also known as abortion pill abortions). Because this type of abortion (which can now be used up to 10 weeks gestation) does not involve any surgical procedures, it can easily be added to existing Planned Parenthood centers without much red tape or expense.

STOPP’s research shows that Planned Parenthood added this killing method to 25 of its centers across the country in 2015 alone. At the end of 2015, Planned Parenthood operated 189 medication only abortion centers and another 167 surgical abortion facilities (all but six also do medication abortions).

It does not come as a major surprise then that Reuters news service released a report this week that led with the sentence: “American women are ending pregnancies with medication almost as often as with surgery, marking a turning point for abortion in the United States.” The conclusions by Reuters were made after it analyzed 2014 abortion data in the United States. Reuters says it obtained previously unreported data from Planned Parenthood and was able to determine that medication abortions accounted for 35 percent of all abortions at Planned Parenthood in 2010 and that increased to 43 percent of PP’s abortions in 2014.

The purpose of STOPP is really quite simple. We intend to cause such discontent with Planned Parenthood programs that it will have no choice but to close its doors and get out of town! That doesn't seem like too much to ask of an organization that has been ruthlessly attacking our children for years-abusing them in the womb and in the classroom.
