You’ve heard all that talk about the counseling that abortion clinics do and that abortion is always the last resort. Well, I know you’ll be shocked but it’s not true. And that’s according to Planned Parenthood.
Anderson Cooper of CNN did a story about abortion and visited an abortion clinic in New York City. Sadly, Cooper didn’t have time to actually speak to any pro-lifers in his story but the Planned Parenthood woman did enough damage to her own cause, I guess.
When Cooper asked the local director of a New York City Planned Parenthood, here’s essentially what the lady from Planned Parenthood says:
1) First we talk about money.
2) Then we do the abortion.
The Cooper quickly attempts to ameliorates the coldness of her statements by asking about counseling. And only then does the director of the Planned Parenthood quickly throw out some lines about counseling they do.
Here’s a short excerpt:
Cooper: This is the waiting room. Someone comes in here and then what?
PP Director: They would’ve called us on the phone. We would’ve gone over with them whether they have health insurance, whether that covers the procedure or not, whether they were planning to pay out of pocket, we offer them to see an entitlement counselor when they come in to review with them what services they may be covered for and to get somebody the coverage they need for all services.
Cooper: And then what’s the next step?
PP Director: We don’t want people to have too many barriers to care. Then they can have whatever services it is that they wanted to come in for.
Cooper: So everything can be done the same day…
Cooper: And in terms of counseling what kind of counseling does the woman have?
PP Director: A lot of information which is what’s going to happen today. Are you sure of your decision? How can we help you think about all your options.
Odd that this woman only brought up counseling only after Cooper pushed it, huh? When originally asked about what happens to a patient, the director of Planned Parenthood said they talk about money and then it’s onto the abortion.
We all knew that Planned Parenthood is only about money but it’s nice to have them admit it once in a while too. Planned Parenthood is not about women. It’s not about families. It’s about money. It’s that simple.

Paraphrasing PP Director:
Funding abortion won't increase the number of abortions, just allow women to pay for them.
Huh? Let's look at one country who pays for abortion: Russia. 64%-70% of all pregnancies end in abortion.
Paying for these "little-murders" is no option for this great country.

Good to see PP hang themselves.
"Funding abortion won't increase the number of abortions"………This could be correct. For example, the Canadian government pays for all abortions and the abortion rate is the same as the U.S.
In the end, it's about a life centred on God's Laws. JPII in EV said the root cause of the culture of death is a loss of a sense of God. Abortion will not end through laws alone rather it will end primarily through pro-lifers, true pro-lifers who support protecting ALL babies (only about 20% of Catholics who go to Mass are pro-life), working to convert hearts. First start with fellow Catholics. If the majority of Catholics who go to Mass on Sundays were pro-life, no exceptions, then most likely there would be no such thing as legal abortion.

Did anybody else notice how she stumbled at first over the follow up question? At 3:08 cooper asks, if insurance isn't so much an issue, then why put it in the bill? (a good question I think)
She looks almost stunned by the question and says something about delaying "care." Let's be honest. She knows as well as everyone, if abortion is funded by the government, if it is free to the patient, the number of abortions will rise. I think she does a good job at thinking on her feet, but the brief stunned look and slight stutter in her response gives her away as a liar.

Check this out! It's all over youtube.com
Can't believe these people lie like that.

"However, Guttmacher's statistics show that government subsidies for abortion would sharply increase the number of abortions among Medicaid-eligible women by as much as 20 – 35 percent. Poor and lower income women just under 200% of the poverty line already account for fifty-seven percent of abortions in the United States. The average amount paid for abortion at 10 weeks is $413, although the research group says the cost is nearly $1800 in some circumstances."
In Canada, abortion is free. Here's (US) it's not always. Assuming the rate is the same for both countries now, at least from the above quote, I would take an educated guess to say that the US rate will exceed Canada if all abortion is free in the US.
