Planned Parenthood’s true colors

Staff Report

People who run private charities that award grants to Planned Parenthood have got to be wondering if their organizations will receive the “Komen Treatment,” a mafia-style shakedown, if they ever decide not to fund the group. Will their organizations’ good names be dragged through the mud in a vicious, cruel and demeaning campaign to dishonor their life-saving work? Probably. The people who run Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain, want money and don’t care who they have to beat down in order to get it.

As a former manager and employee of the year of a Planned Parenthood in Texas, I know what Planned Parenthood does for women’s health, and it sickens me. At my clinic, we didn’t have cancer screening quotas to fill — we had abortion quotas to fill, because that’s what made us money. In fact, Planned Parenthood isn’t even allowed to perform anything other than manual breast exams so we had to refer out sometimes for breast abnormalities. We would send low-income women to a mammography and diagnostic center that would provide the services for free.

But here’s the kicker: If a low-income woman comes in to Planned Parenthood for a breast exam, the federal government will pay for it. The Komen money isn’t really necessary. Taxpayers give $1 million a day to Planned Parenthood, more than enough to cover free cancer screenings. And if the government wised up and stopped funding the abortion giant, the underprivileged and uninsured would be fine because there are over 7,000 federally qualified health centers around the country that serve the underprivileged and uninsured — many of which provide free cancer screenings.
