TN media spins Planned Parenthood’s lack of prenatal care services

It is beyond amazing how the nation’s largest abortion corporation Planned Parenthood will mislead the public about the services they provide, all while the media is willingly complicit in their deceptions, by spinning the facts about prenatal care and other services.  The latest example can be seen in a Tennessee media outlet, which compares prenatal care to “vaginal infections.”

Lest you have the same puzzled reaction as I did, I will explain – or attempt to.

One of the more well-known examples of how Planned Parenthood has lied to the media and the public about its services is the false claim and out-right lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms. This myth was debunked despite the efforts of complicit media outlets, which allowed Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and other staffers and supporters to repeat the falsehood without question or a single challenge to Planned Parenthood’s alleged facts. Here is the truth, from Richards’ own lips:

Once Planned Parenthood was caught red-handed in the lie, they had to figure out a way to leverage the marketing benefits that their false claim provided them. To do this, Planned Parenthood directed media supporters to incidents where it provided a breast exam which resulted in a patient seeking a mammogram that was never offered by Planned Parenthood to begin with.

And, of course, the media continues to comply, spinning the lack of mammograms to favor Planned Parenthood.

Yet nowhere else in the media’s disillusioned minds would they consider touting report after report on a single OB/GYN or nurse practitioner’s office which saved lives by giving breast exams, without one cent of government money. Nope, only for Planned Parenthood.

Now, a media outlet in Tennessee has done a similar sleight of hand trick regarding prenatal care at Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis.

BACKGROUND:

Nationally, the abortion giant has insisted over and again that prenatal care is one of its core services that women will lose if taxpayer funding is cut off.

That is, until this false claim was debunked by a Live Action investigation:

Live Action’s undercover footage (above) was so embarrassing for Planned Parenthood that the organization had to purge the term “prenatal” from the top portion of its website.

Despite this, politicians – and yes, media promoters – still make the false claim that prenatal care is a primary service of the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Despite the media’s willful blindness and apparent inability to research, it does seem logical that an organization claiming to specialize in “women’s health care” would, at the very least, offer prenatal care. But this is not the case with Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood’s latest 2015-2016 report shows that nationally, prenatal care services dropped nearly 46 percent in a single year (from 17,419 to 9,419).

Even more damning, the 2015 numbers also reveal that prenatal care at the abortion corporation has decreased nearly 70 percent since 2010, when prenatal services numbered 31,098.

TENNESSEE:

Journalist , who writes for  CommercialAppeal.com, recently published an article that included an interview with Sarah Wallett, medical director of Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis.

Weathersbee begins her report by stating that the Planned Parenthood abortionist was “lured” into her profession because of her “faith,” quoting Wallett as saying:

Becoming a doctor was a way of living out my faith, of taking care of people who needed me … and women were specifically who I saw as needing me.

Wallett moved to Tennessee from Kentucky. She prides herself in providing abortions, as the video below shows:

Weathersbee focused her story on an alleged OB/GYN shortage in the area. So, of course, any good journalist knows that if the topic is legitimate physician shortages, you should go running to the nation’s largest abortion corporation — not a birthing center or a hospital or another physician who actually delivers babies — for a statement… right?

In what appears to be a creative way to spin the fact that Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis doesn’t offer any prenatal care services,  writes the following:

While Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide prenatal care, the gynecological examinations that Wallett provides have helped women detect vaginal infections, some of which can lead to premature births and miscarriages.

Despite admitting that the Memphis Planned Parenthood facilities do not provide prenatal care services, the journalist points out how important prenatal care is, adding:

For one thing, Shelby County has made significant progress in tamping down its infant mortality rate. Since 2006, that rate has dropped from 13.8 percent per 1,000 live births in 2006 to 8.2 percent in 2015.

That improvement came, in no small part, because the county pushed earlier prenatal care and emphasis on maternal health.

So, let’s recap. Prenatal care is important, Planned Parenthood doesn’t provide the service, yet this qualifies them to be interviewed for Weathersbee’s story.

Confused? So am I.

In order to help Weathersbee see how ridiculous her decision to include Planned Parenthood is, Live Action News has done a little bit of research of our own in order to investigate just what Planned Parenthood provides in the state.

PATIENTS: 

If you examine the 2016 annual report for Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis, (which serves 42 counties in Tennessee), you learn that the facility saw 7,729 patients in 2016 and 7,191 in 2015.  And, according to its website, it currently sees 14,561 patients in the entire state.

In contrast, Tennessee federal health centers – which are listed under the Health Resources Services Administration’s website (HRSA) and which offer a vast array of health services – saw 369,445 patients in 2015 alone.

Federal health centers under HRSA served 5,460 prenatal patients as well, while Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis served zero.

Despite  spin, nationally, Planned Parenthood’s most recent prenatal services numbers are abysmal, dropping nearly 46 percent in a single year, and 70 percent since 2010, as I’ve already mentioned.

CANCER SCREENINGS:

According to the Planned Parenthood website mentioned above, Planned Parenthood offered 2,552 cancer screenings statewide.

Tennessee federal health centers under HRSA were able to provide 174,000 cervical cancer screenings.

BREAST EXAMS: 

In 2016, breast exams at Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis decreased nearly 16 percent (1,060 in 2015 to 893).

This trend follows national decreases which show that according to Planned Parenthood’s most recently published report, breast exams at the abortion corporation declined nearly 12 percent in one year, from 363,803 in 2014-2015 to 321,700 in 2015.

In addition, between 2004 and 2015-2016, breast exams at Planned Parenthood declined nationally by more than 65 percent (925,763 to 321,700).

ABORTIONS:

In 2015, Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis performed 3,313 abortions (medical and surgical) out of the 9,113 induced termination of pregnancy reports made to the state, (the most recent report available). Numbers from 2016 reveal that Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis’s abortion numbers were lower, at 2,383.

CONTRACEPTIVE CARE: 

Contraceptive care Planned Parenthood Tennessee vs FQHC

An analysis conducted by Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate,” the Guttmacher Institute, compared Federally Qualified Health Center sites (FQHC) to Planned Parenthood centers in areas that offered publicly funded contraception care for 2015. What they found doesn’t look so good.

In counties that offered publicly funded contraception care:

  • Only 4 out of 95 TN counties had at least one Planned Parenthood.
  • 66 counties had at least one FQHC site.
  • 91 counties didn’t have a single Planned Parenthood.

In addition:

  • Planned Parenthood served fewer contraception clients in one-fourth of the TN counties where they had a Planned Parenthood facility.
  • Only 1.5 percent (4 out of 262) of TN’s publicly funded family planning facilities were Planned Parenthood facilities, which served just 6 percent of contraception clients. FQHC sites served 16 percent.

FACILITIES:

At the time of this report, Planned Parenthood was operating only 4 centers in Tennessee.

However, according to the Rural Health Information Hub website, there are 112 Rural Health Clinics in Tennessee and 29 Federally Qualified Health Centers which provide services at 179 sites in the state. These centers offer a vast array of primary care services for women, unlike Planned Parenthood.

The numbers show how few services Planned Parenthood provides in Tennessee compared to other federally funded health centers.

This should cause journalists like Weathersbee to take note. But instead of focusing on health centers in Tennessee that actually help residents receive vital health care services, Weathersbee, like other media supporters of the abortion corporation, fixated on Planned Parenthood.

The public deserves to know the facts. After all, they send hundreds of thousands of dollars of government grant money to Planned Parenthood of Greater Memphis each year.

And, as Live Action News has previously documented, in the past ten years, services nationally at Planned Parenthood decreased while government funds increased more than 81 percent ($305.3 million in 2005 to $554.6 million in 2015).  These increased tax dollars did not result in vital health services, but instead led to Planned Parenthood’s cornering of nearly 35 percent of the U.S. abortion market in the United States. That’s more than 320,000 abortions annually – 900 per day, one every 96 seconds.

Why did Senator Lisa Murkowski vote to make taxpayers support Planned Parenthood, Alaska’s number one abortion provider?

Posted in Abortion stats, FQHC, HRSA, Planned Parenthood abortion stats, Planned Parenthood politicians, Planned Parenthood state stats with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 23, 2017 by saynsumthn

Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) are being lauded by Planned Parenthood after the two Republican lawmakers voted against a repeal of ObamaCare because they did not want to defund the abortion corporation for one year. Murkowski and Collins are now making the rounds, touting Planned Parenthood as a health organization that women cannot live without. This, however, is totally untrue. Federal health centers, which outnumber Planned Parenthood by the thousands nationally, offer a wide range of primary care services as well as services identical to those offered by Planned Parenthood – except abortion, which is not healthcare, as clearly seen in the video below, in which former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino explains the most common type of abortion procedure:

These two Republican Senators are deceiving their constituents about the “services” Planned Parenthood provides while walking in lock step with the largest abortion chain in the United States.

In part one of this two-part series, we will examine Planned Parenthood’s services in Murkowski’s state of Alaska. In part two, we will scrutinize Planned Parenthood’s services in Maine and compare them to the claims of Senator Collins.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)

Senator Murkowski has spoken out of both sides of her mouth regarding Planned Parenthood for years. She once stated, “Taxpayer dollars should never be used to pay for abortions, but I will not vote to deny Alaskans access to the health services that Planned Parenthood provides.”

To Planned Parenthood’s benefit, Murkowski has kept that promise. In refusing to repeal ObamaCare, Murkowski has kept the nation’s largest abortion corporation funded to the tune of half a billion dollars annually. In doing this, she has also chosen to allocate vital health dollars away from more worthy federal health centers which offer a vast array of primary care services to women, men and children.

Live Action News has previously shown that Planned Parenthood has seen dramatic decreases in services like contraception, Pap tests, cancer screenings, and breast exams –  all while the organization’s government funding and abortions are increasing nationally.

And state trends are not so different from national numbers. In fact, Planned Parenthood is Alaska’s largest abortion provider. So how, in good conscience, can Senator Murkowski continually vote to keep taxpayer funding for the organization while ignoring this fact?

Here are some numbers from Murkowski’s state of Alaska:

Facilities 

Planned Parenthood operates just four centers in Alaska, yet there are 29 Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) which provide services at 177 sites in Alaska, according to the Rural Health Info hub.

Patients

While Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands saw 79,532 patients in 2015 in the four states they oversee, federal health centers – listed under the Health Resources Services Administration’swebsite (HRSA) – saw 110,494 in Alaska alone.

When factoring in the additional three states (see numbers below) the federal health center numbers reveal how vast the federal program is compared to Planned Parenthood.

A look at Planned Parenthood’s own website shows that in Alaska the organization claims to serve 7,295 clients for whom they provided the services such as:

  • Contraception
  • STI tests
  • Cancer screenings

A media report claimed that just 4500 of Planned Parenthood’s clients in Alaska rely on Medicaid. That reduces the numbers drastically. Despite this, as previously pointed out, federal health centers cared for over 110,000 patients in 2015.

Contraception Care: 

An analysis conducted by Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate,” the Guttmacher Institute, which reviewed Planned Parenthood centers (PP), Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC), and Title X facilities for 2015 revealed:

  • 5 out of 28 counties in Alaska which provided publicly funded contraception care had at least one Planned Parenthood.
  • 27 counties had at least one FQHC site that provided contraception services.
  • 23 counties had no Planned Parenthood centers.
  • Slightly more than 3 percent (5 out of 157) of publicly funded family planning centers were operated by Planned Parenthood.
  • PP served 19 percent of contraception clients while FQHC sites served 45 percent.
  • In 4 of the 5 counties that had a Planned Parenthood, PP served fewer contraception clients than FQHC sites.

PP versus FQHC Contraception Care Alaska 2015 per Guttmacher

Cancer Screenings: 

While Planned Parenthood’s website claims the abortion corporation provided 2,667 cancer screenings in Alaska, a breakdown of clinical services published by HRSA shows that in 2015 alone, 43.3 percent (nearly 48,000) of the 110,494 patients served by federal health centers in the state received cervical cancer screenings there.

Abortions:

Planned Parenthood in Alaska is operated by Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands (PPGNHI), which runs centers in four states: Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, and Washington.

PPGNHI was formed in April of 2015 from a merger between Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest (PPGNW) and Planned Parenthood of Hawaii (PPHI).

In 2014, while cancer screenings made up just 8 percent of PPGNW’s services, abortions were 12 percent of the services PPGNW provided. In that same year (just prior to their merger) while PPHI’s abortion services totaled a whopping 21 percent, cancer screenings and annual exams at Planned Parenthood of Hawaii were just 5 percent of what it provided.

PPHI – more abortions than cancer screenings in 2014

By 2015, the affiliate’s annual report showed that abortion made up 13 percent of services, while cancer screenings were 11 percent of services. The vast majority of the services provided were family planning at 48 percent and HIV testing and treatment at 26 percent. Pregnancy testing was only one percent of the services PPGNWHI provided. Government grants totaled 19 percent of the affiliate’s revenue.

PPGNW – more abortions than cancer screenings

Statistics published by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services Bureau of Vital Statistics show that in 2015, a total of 1,334 induced terminations were reported to the state. According to numbers made public in a recent lawsuit, Planned Parenthood committed 1,300 of those 1,334 abortions, making them the provider of 97 percent of all abortions in Alaska.

Tax Funded Abortions:

PP in Alaska pushed Medicaid for abortion customer

Live Action News has documented that Planned Parenthood abortionists in Alaska believe all abortions are “medically necessary,” thereby justifying the use of taxpayer funds to end the lives of preborn children in the state.

A recent call made by a Live Action investigator documented a Planned Parenthood staffer in Alaska coaching a prospective abortion patient as to how she could receive taxpayer-funded Medicaid to pay for her abortion.

Statistics published by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services Bureau of Vital Statistics show that in 2015, 32.8 percent of the women who obtained abortions used Medicaid to pay for their abortions. In 2016, despite a decrease in the state’s abortions, those that were taxpayer-funded increased to 44.1 percent.

Medicaid (tax) funded abortions in Alaska 2015

According to the Alaska Induced Termination of Pregnancy Statistics reports, which include the total number of abortions covered by Medicaid, state taxpayers paid $135,637 for abortions in 2015 and $153,208 in 2016.

The truth is that every day, senators like Murkowski and Collins stand in the way of Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, and that means the American people will be forced to continue giving $1.5 million each day to an abortion business which will continue to kill 900 innocent preborn children every day.

Analysis: As government funding increases, so do Planned Parenthood’s abortions

Posted in Abortion stats, Guttmacher, Planned Parenthood abortion numbers, Planned Parenthood abortion stats, Planned Parenthood adoption referral with tags , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2016 by saynsumthn

An analysis of annual reports published by Planned Parenthood for the past 15 years has revealed that as government funding for the organization increased, Planned Parenthood’s share of the country’s abortions also increased. Since 2000, Planned Parenthood has performed over four million abortions and received almost $5 billion in federal tax dollars.

Over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity performed on Black or Hispanic women, 2012

A new report on abortion stats published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that abortions have decreased in the last year, a trend that has continued for the past 25 years but sadly remains disproportionately high among minorities. Because abortion reporting requirements vary from state to state, the numbers do not represent all abortions performed in the United States.

CDC Abortions numbers 2012 reported 2015

According to the latest data, published November 27, 2015, abortions fell by more than 30,000 from the previous year. In 2012, 699,202 abortions were reported to CDC, down 31,120 from the 730,322 abortions reported in 2011. From 2011 to 2012, the total number and ratio of reported abortions decreased 4% and the abortion rate decreased 5%. From 2003 to 2012, the total number, rate, and ratio of reported abortions decreased 17%, 18%, and 14%, respectively, and reached their lowest level in 2012 for the entire period of analysis (2003–2012).

AGE

The stats also showed that women in their 20’s accounted for the majority of abortions and had the highest abortion rates. However teens less than 15 years-old accounted for .4% of the reported numbers while those 15–19 years accounted for 12.2% of all abortions. From 2003 to 2012, the percentage of abortions accounted for by adolescents aged 15–19 years decreased 27% and their abortion rate decreased 40%. The numbers reflects polling data which shows that support for making abortion broadly illegal is growing fastest among young adults. In fact, for all Millennials in 2012, only 37% considered abortion morally acceptable.

RACE

Research shows that family planning centers and abortion facilities often set up their locations in or near minority communities. In addition, the largest provider of abortions, Planned Parenthood was founded by a radical advocate of racist eugenics. As a result, the numbers of abortions performed on minorities and specifically Black women remain disproportionately high.

In 2011, the CDC revealed that almost 56% of all abortions reported for race were done on minority women. According to the latest report dated November 27,2015, in 2012, over 55% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity were performed on Black or Hispanic women.

CDC Abortions black hispanic

Among the 27 areas that reported abortions by race/ethnicity , non-Hispanic white women and non-Hispanic black women accounted for the largest percentages of abortions. According to the 2012 stats, Black women had the highest abortion rate (27.8 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and accounted for 36.7% of abortions reported for race/ethnicity while 18.7% of abortions were reported for Hispanic women. White women accounted for a slightly higher abortion percentage, 37.6% of reported abortions, but had the lowest abortion rate (7.7 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years).

In several states, Black Abortions reported for race broke down as follows:

GESTATION

babyat20weeks

The largest numbers of abortions were performed in the early trimester. However, over 6.000 abortions were performed at 21 weeks or greater. A 2014 report published by the Lozier Institute found that the United States is one of only seven countries in the world that permit elective abortion past 20 weeks. Efforts to ban abortions after 20 weeks have been opposed by the abortion industry, specifically Planned Parenthood. While Planned Parenthood publicly claims that abortions late in pregnancy are done mainly for severe fetal anomalies, undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress disputed that claim. Live Action News has documented this contradiction in detail here.

According to the 2012 stats, only 467,959 abortions were reported to the CDC by gestation and broke down by weeks as follows:

    Less than 8 weeks 308,058
    9-13 weeks 119,994
    14-15 weeks 16,274
    16-17 weeks 8,641
    18-20 weeks 8,812
    21 weeks and older 6,180

The CDC has been collecting stats on abortion since 1969 and data includes medical as well as surgical abortions. Although most reporting areas collect and send abortion data to the CDC, the data remains incomplete and stats that are submitted to the CDC are done voluntarily. In addition, the stats do not include abortions from every state including some states that tend to have high numbers of abortion clinics. But the yearly stats from the numbers that are collected indicate that abortions are decreasing.

This was confirmed by the Associated Press who surveyed abortion providers in 45 states earlier this year. Their data collected mostly from 2013 and 2014 found that abortions continued to fall in those years. According to the AP, declines were seen in states that have passed pro-life laws as well as in more liberal states.

2011 CDC Black Abortions – Total 146,856 (36.2%)

Among the 27 areas that reported cross-classified race/ ethnicity data for 2011 (Table 12), non-Hispanic white women and non-Hispanic black women accounted for the largest percentages of abortions (37.2% and 36.2%, respectively), and Hispanic women and non-Hispanic women in the other race category accounted for smaller percentages (19.7% and 7.0%, respectively). Non-Hispanic white women had the lowest abortion rate (8.0 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratio (132 abortions per 1,000 live births), and non-Hispanic black women had the highest abortion rate (29.7 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years) and ratio
(459 abortions per 1,000 live births).

According to the stats 7.3% of unborn babies killed by abortion were between 14–20 weeks’ gestation and 1.4% were 21 weeks’ gestation or greater.

That means that, according to CDC numbers:

    53,313 unborn babies were aborted between 14-20 weeks

    and

    10,224 were 21 weeks or greater.

But, a chart published by the CDC for 39 states that reported abortions by gestation (520,304 of the 730,322 abortion reported) in 2011 show that in those 39 states:

    335,748 abortions were performed at less than 8 weeks
    139,775 abortions were performed at 9-13 weeks gestation
    17,952 abortions were performed at 14-15 weeks gestation
    9,795 abortions were performed at 16-17 weeks gestation
    9,709 abortions were performed at 18-20 weeks gestation
    7,325 abortions were performed at 21 weeks gestation or greater.

Abortion Deaths CDC 2011

According to the CDC, “Deaths of women associated with complications from abortions for 2011 are being investigated as part of CDC’s Pregnancy Mortality Surveillance System. In 2010, the most recent year for which data were available, 10 women were identified to have died as a result of complications from known legal induced abortions. No reported deaths were associated with known illegal induced abortions.”

However, pro-lifers continue to document women killed from legal abortion here.
