abortion pill

A measure to force public universities to offer dangerous abortion pills on college campus, recently signed into law by California Governor Gavin Newsom, will initially be set up using funds from pro-abortion groups. However, pro-life student group Students for Life of America (SFLA) notes that student fees will also be used to fund on-campus abortions, since those fees underwrite the costs of campus healthcare centers. SFLA also pointed out how the conscience rights of students and healthcare workers will be violated if forced to participate with abortions. “This law includes funds that can go to Planned Parenthood for ‘consulting’ and new funds for ‘security’, allowing the nation’s number one abortion vendor to sit back and cash checks, enjoying the chaos of abortions taking place at schools without any of the risk,” said SFLA president Kristin Hawkins.

The bill requires student health care services centers at the state’s 34 University of California (UC) and California State University (CSU) campuses to offer medication abortion on and after January 1, 2023. According to a Department of Financial Bill Analysis, SB 24 “establishes the College Student Health Center Sexual and Reproductive Health Preparation Fund under the administration of the Commission on the Status of Women and Girls.” It requires the Commission, whose current chair Alisha Wilkins previously worked for Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest in Riverside, “to provide grants of $200,000 to each student health center, and a grant of $200,000 to both the UC and CSU system to become prepared to offer abortion by medication techniques and develop associated back-up medical supports.”

The abortion pill was brought into the U.S. by the Population Council, a eugenics organization which sought out investors to set up a highly secretive company — DANCO Laboratories — to manufacture the drug.

Investors included:

  • The Packard Foundation, which originally invested in 1996 to help keep DANCO afloat when it “ran short on funds”
  • The Buffett Foundation, identified by the Washington Post in 2000, writing, “The Buffett Foundation… made at least $2 million in interest-free loans to the Population Council… according to tax documents filed in 1995. That money was in turn used to conduct clinical trials of RU-486 [the abortion pill].”
  • George Soros (Open Society Foundations)
  • A number of other abortion pill investors chose to remain unnamed, according to internal documents reviewed by the Wall Street Journal

To update campus student health center procedures, provide training, and purchase equipment at UC, the Department’s analysis estimated:

  • One-time system wide readiness General Fund costs between $4.6 million to $7.8 million…
  • Ongoing General Fund costs of $2.2 million to $3.3 million commencing in 2023 to provide abortion by medication services in each campus student health center and provide access to 24-hour telehealth services.

At CSU, the initial costs were “unknown” but raised concerns it could likely range in the millions to low tens of millions of dollars.

“While this bill and its sponsors indicate that private financing would cover all the costs associated with this bill, Finance notes this bill could create future General Fund cost pressures to the extent sufficient private funding cannot be raised to support readiness grants, the costs to comply with this bill’s requirements exceed the proposed grant funding, or to the extent the UC and CSU incur ongoing costs after January 1, 2023,” the analysis said.

According to a statement by the ACLU, a “[C]onsortium of funders, including the Women’s Foundation of California and Tara Health Foundation,” has raised the initial funds.

According to the Guttmacher Institute there were 132,680 abortions committed in California in 2017. A previous analysis by Live Action News revealed that taxpayers in the state paid over half a billion dollars (nearly $700 million) for abortions from 1989 to 2014. In 2017, the pro-abortion Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) — a research group at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, which trains abortion providers — estimated, “Approximately 23% of CSU students and 12% of UC students are enrolled in Medi-Cal.”

“Students across UC and CSU campuses obtain 1,038 abortions each month,” ANSIRH wrote adding, “[W]e estimate there would be between 322-519 medication abortions occurring across UC and CSU campuses every month.”

SFLA claims there was no need for the law because abortion facilities are less than 6 miles from every California public university and college campus. The group also claims there are no safeguards are in place to protect women who may be dosed with the drugs without their consent. Live Action News previously documented how many of those behind the push for these dangerous pills to be readily available on campus are also pushing for FDA safety requirements to be lifted. To date, at least 24 women have died from the abortion pill and literally thousands have been hospitalized with serious complications.

When Planned Parenthood and the media claim “abortion laws” are part of a long held strategy to dismantle Roe and ban abortion- as demonstrated in these Tweets….remind them that it is the abortion lobby that has had a long held strategy to weaponize abortion, as I will demonstrate below.

REMIND them that the abortion lobby and Planned Parenthood want to WEAPONIZE abortion and there has been a strategy to expand abortion: 

#1) Click to READ: EXPOSED: Abortion groups’ plan to ‘increase supply and demand’ for abortion   

A 92-page report on the Tara Health Foundation website should be reviewed by pro-life advocates across the nation, as it details upcoming strategy from abortion supporters, which includes the push for “home use” abortions. The document, as detailed at Live Action News reveals pro-abortion legislative and litigation strategies suggested in the report include:

  • REMS removal strategy (This is the risk management system that governs the abortion pill RU486)
  • TRAP laws removal advocacy
  • Gestational bans removal advocacy
  • Criminality of self-induced abortion removal advocacy
  • Organizing led by women of color (WOC)
  • Reproductive health or democracy reform PAC donations
  • Reproductive justice PAC donations
  • The plan committed to “increasing access for people with low incomes” even “where abortion… becomes inaccessible or is banned completely.”

TARA Health Foundation Abortion strategy

 

#2). Click to Read: Planned Parenthood’s 3-part plan for 2019: Abortion, Abortion, Abortion 

This Live Action News piece, documents that earlier this year, Planned Parenthood released its plan for 2019, and despite  declining clients and health services, the plan reveals the organization’s continued obsession with abortion. The “multi-million dollar” plan was announced by the group’s political advocacy arm, Live Action News reports.
According to PP’s document and the Live Action News article, the largest provider of abortion planned to do the following:

Expand abortion using a Regional Access Network the abortion chain’s plans include:

  • A Regional Access Network anywhere abortion either becomes inaccessible or is banned completely
  • Facilitate telehealth care and transportation for patients facing obstacles to abortion
  • Opening new abortion facilities
  • Expanding medication abortion services
  • Expanding telemedicine services to increase abortion access for clients in remote communities

Legislative efforts to expand tax funded abortion, the plan will target 10 states, including:

  • Illinois, where Planned Parenthood is pushing public funding of abortion and ways the state can “codify the right to abortion in state law”
  • Maine, where Planned Parenthood is “moving to ensure women insured through public programs can have… abortion”
  • Rhode Island. where Planned Parenthood “will work in the 2019 legislative session to codify the right to…abortion in state law”
  • Oregon, where Planned Parenthood “is implementing the Reproductive Health Equity Act to guarantees no-cost coverage for… abortion”
  • Hawaii, where Planned Parenthood “is working to expand access to…abortion by advancing comprehensive coverage of… abortion”
  • Washington, where Planned Parenthood “is focusing on passing the Reproductive Health Equity Access bill” to remove barriers to abortion

Use Hollywood and media to “destigmatize abortion” the plan vows to:

  • Work with “content creators” on portraying abortion positively in film and television
  • Create resources to encourage, “accurate, non-judgmental conversations about abortion…”
  • Use technology to “help people understand the reality of safe, legal abortion and what patients experience when having an abortion”

#3) Click to Read Guttmacher Institute releases plan to expand abortion in 7 ways 

Live Action News documents how, the Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate,” has published a new “policy review,” titled, “Ensuring Access to Abortion at the State Level.
The document is broken down by several strategy subjects:
  • Affirming and Protecting the Right to Abortion
  • Providing Abortion Coverage
  • Ensuring Access to Information
  • Supporting Adolescents’ Access
  • Preventing Clinic Violence
  • Expanding the Pool of Abortion Providers
  • Creating a Safe Policy Environment for Self-Managed Care
  • Expanding Online and Telehealth Access

Paraphrased by Live Action News as follows:

  • 1) Push statutory and constitutional measures to codify abortion
  • 2) Increase taxpayer-funded abortion
  • 3) Force insurance companies to cover abortion
  • 4) Eliminate informed consent 
  • 5) Increase abortion customers
  • 6) Allow non-physicians to commit abortions
  • 7) Push “self-managed abortions”

#4) Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), Gynuity Health Projects, and Ibis Reproductive Health  

According to another Live Action News report, “A consortium of abortion organizations — Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), Gynuity Health Projects, and Ibis Reproductive Health — published a report entitled, “A roadmap for research on self-managed abortion in the United States.” The report suggested, [M]edication abortion could be even further demedicalized through pharmacy dispensing and expansion of telemedicine models—or even making it available over the counter (OTC)—which have the potential to expand access greatly.”

And…what do you know? Abortion organizations are pushing to expand abortion like never before, by attempting to influence the FDA to remove important safety regulations, called REMS which will enable them to sell the dangerous abortion pills online.

The Document claims these groups are planning to: 

  • Expand direct-to-patient telemedicine with various options, such as:
  • Use of phone rather than videoconferencing. 
  • Web-based interface for patient interactions and for recording clinical and research data.
  • Provision of medication abortion pills from a central pharmacy rather than from each clinician’s office.
  • Elimination of the requirement for screening ultrasound and lab tests (i.e., implement screening based entirely on history).
  • Home-based follow-up methods using urine pregnancy testing.
  • Study the uptake, safety, and effectiveness of advance provision of medication abortion pills.
  • Undertake an OTC label comprehension study and develop and implement an actual use study in a simulated OTC environment.
  • Identify ways to improve access in legally restricted settings using data from research with online providers and smartphone apps.

All pro-life groups need to read the abortion weaponization playbooks outlines above.

Abortion groups tell women to lie about abortion pill, claim miscarriage

Just as abortion supporters rage over new pro-life laws in Georgia and Alabama, claiming that women could be investigated for miscarriages, comes proof that abortion supporters are actually advising women who experience complications from illegal use of the abortion pill to lie to health care providers and say they had miscarriages.

Currently, abortion insiders, many with ties to abortion pill manufacturer Danco, are pushing for expansion of the abortion pill, despite thousands of adverse effects and two dozen deaths. The abortion pill regimen consists of two drugs: Mifepristone  (or Mifeprex) and Misoprostol. The FDA has warned women against purchasing these dangerous pills online.

Dr. Daniel Grossman, a professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of California, San Francisco, who also teaches abortion allegedly told a reporter at The Atlantic that if women using these [self-managed abortion] regimens experience heavy bleeding or some other complication, they are generally advised to go to a hospital and say they had a miscarriage.

Grossman is behind clinical trials to expand the abortion pill for pharmacy dispension and is calling to remove important safety requirements put in place by the FDA, called REMS. This comes as no surprise, as one of the major original investors of abortion pill manufacturer Danco — The Packard Foundation — has funded other Grossman-authored studies. In other words, those behind the studies attempting to do away with FDA safety requirements for the abortion pill stand to gain a significant amount of money if those requirements are removed.

If you think you might have a complication you should go to a doctor immediately. If you live in a place where abortion is a crime and you don’t have a doctor you trust, you can still access medical care. You do not have to tell the medical staff that you tried to induce an abortion; you can tell them that you had a spontaneous miscarriage. Doctors have the obligation to help in all cases and know how to handle a miscarriage.
The international abortion organization, Women on Web, advises women on its website to present to the ER and claim they are having a miscarriage if they experience complications from the abortion pill in a country where taking the drug is illegal:

The symptoms of a miscarriage and an abortion with pills are exactly the same and the doctor will not be able to see or test for any evidence of an abortion, as long as the pills have completely dissolved. 

Women on Web advises women lie about illegal abortion pill emergencies say miscarriage (accessed 5/14/2019)

According to a report from The Atlantic, Women on Web’s founder, Rebecca Gomperts, launched the site Aid Access to sell the abortion pill online, against FDA requirements. The FDA recently issued Aid Access a warning letter to cease its illegal activity. Last week, over 100 lawmakers sent a letter to the FDA, asking it to continue to monitor and crack down on dangerous websites like Aid Access.

But that has not stopped other proponents of self-managed abortion, who seem set on placing women in harm’s way. The website Plan C, founded in 2015 by Francine Coeytaux and Elisa Wells, tells women, “Those who choose to self-manage their abortion have no obligation to report that they have used misoprostol and there is no way it can be detected in the body, even if a blood test is taken. Scientists have found that there is no noticeable difference between a naturally occurring miscarriage and the bleeding that happens after taking misoprostol.”

Plan C Website FAQ where get

Then, if something goes wrong (and it most likely will), the Plan C website, which is under the fiscal sponsorship of the National Women’s Health Network, advises women to present to the emergency room or other health care offices and simply claim they are experiencing a miscarriage.

Live Action News previously reported how abortion organization, Reproaction, purchased over $4,000 in ads to promote a push for self-managed abortion — something unapproved by the FDA. Reproaction also advises women to seek care by lying about their abortions.

A webinar published in 2018 states in part that women “need information to reduce the risk of arrest… what the signs of a complication are and most importantly what to say if one needs to go to the doctor…. [T]he symptoms of an abortion with pills and miscarriage are exactly the same and the treatment for any kind of complication is exactly the same…. It’s important for people to understand there’s no test for these pills in blood or urine so if they present with a miscarriage they can get the healthcare that they need….”

tweet from “Helen Bolton” — whose profile implies that he or she is with organized abortion groups “ and ” — reiterates the deception being proposed: “Misoprostol is basically OTC in a lot of the world and is regularly used to self-manage abortions in places where it’s illegal. Even with complications, the patient looks like they had a miscarriage, so people can go to a hospital (provided miscarriages aren’t investigated).”

The FDA adds, “You should not buy Mifeprex over the Internet because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health (and the health of others). Mifeprex has special safety restrictions on how it is distributed to the public. Also, drugs purchased from foreign Internet sources are not the FDA-approved versions of the drugs, and they are not subject to FDA-regulated manufacturing controls or FDA inspection of manufacturing facilities.”

According to the FDA’s adverse effects reports through 2018, there have been reports of 24 deaths associated with Mifeprex since the product was approved in September 2000, as well as 4,200 reported adverse effects, including hospitalization and other serious complications.

Group vows to defy FDA, continues dispensing abortion pills illegally

Posted in Abortion pill, Abortion Pill Connections, Abortion Pill Horrors, Abortion Pills Illegal, DANCO, FDA, Illegal abortion, Population Control with tags , , , , , , , , on June 1, 2019 by saynsumthn

abortion pill

Just days after 100 lawmakers sent a letter to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) — which oversees drug safety — requesting that the FDA monitor abortion group Aid Access for illegally dispensing abortion pills, Aid Access announced its intent to defy the FDA’s warnings to “immediately cease” dispension of the drugs.

Aid Access founder Rebecca Gomperts published her response on Aid Access’s website as well as on Women on Waves, another organization Gomperts founded in 1999. Gomperts claims, “Last year, I prescribed 2,581 medical abortions out of 11,108 women who consulted me.”

Gomperts states in part:

On March 8, 2019, I received a letter from the FDA ordering my new (since 2018) organization, Aid Access, to stop providing telemedical abortion services to women who cannot otherwise access safe abortions because of costs, domestic violence, distance, or other reasons, and who do not have access to other doctors willing or able to prescribe misoprostol and mifepristone.

This letter was applauded by Republican members of Congress, of whom 92 percent are male.

But I will not be deterred. When U.S. women seeking to terminate their pregnancies prior to 9 weeks consult me, I will not turn them away. I will continue to protect the human and constitutional right of my patients to access safe abortion services.

Notably, the Congressional letter was signed by a number of women in Congress, including Reps. Martha Roby, Carol D. Miller, Virginia Foxx, Liz Cheney, Ann Wagner, Jenniffer González Colón, Debbie Lesko, and several medical doctors who also serve in the House of Representatives, among many others.

Rebecca Gomperts founder of Aid Access defiant to offer illegal abortion pills online

In a statement to Live Action News, the FDA wrote:

As noted in the FDA warning letter to AidAccess issued on March 8, 2019, failure to correct the violations of the law may result in FDA regulatory action, including seizure or injunction, without further notice. We cannot comment on a potential future action at this time, but we remain very concerned about the sale of unapproved mifepristone for medical termination of early pregnancy on the Internet, because this bypasses important safeguards designed to protect women’s health. Unapproved drugs purchased from foreign internet sources are not the FDA-approved versions of the drugs, and therefore, they are not subject to FDA-regulated manufacturing controls or FDA inspection of manufacturing facilities. Drugs that have circumvented regulatory safeguards may be contaminated, counterfeit, contain varying amounts of active ingredients, or contain different ingredients altogether.

The statement went on to say that “The FDA’s regulation and oversight of the drug approval process and drug distribution helps to protect patients by applying rigorous scientific and safety standards, requiring labeling review for accuracy and completeness, and working to ensure that counterfeit and unsafe medicines do not enter the U.S. drug supply. When these requirements are not met, FDA can step in to help protect consumers.” The FDA reiterated that it has warned AidAccess.org and Rablon that they are in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act for causing the introduction of unapproved new drugs into U.S. commerce.

Drugs are tightly regulated by the FDA for a reason, and under current requirements, the abortion pill — also known as Mifeprex or Mifepristone — is only permitted to be dispensed in hospitals or clinics by medical personal who are approved prescribers of the pill. FDA placed Mifeprex under a tighter regulatory system known by the acronym REMS (Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy), “a safety strategy to manage a known or potential serious risk associated with a medicine and to enable patients to have continued access to such medicines by managing their safe use.”

Under the Mifepristone REMS Program, the FDA states, “Mifeprex and the approved generic version of Mifeprex” may:

  • [O]nly be supplied directly to healthcare providers who are certified to prescribe the drug product and who meet certain qualifications.
  • [T]he products are only available to be dispensed in certain healthcare settings, specifically, clinics, medical offices and hospitals, by or under the supervision of a certified prescriber.
  • They are not available in retail pharmacies and are not legally available over the Internet.

The FDA has warned women against purchasing these dangerous pills online: “Do Not Buy Mifeprex Over the Internet.

The FDA adds, “You should not buy Mifeprex over the Internet because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health (and the health of others).

Also, drugs purchased from foreign Internet sources are not the FDA-approved versions of the drugs, and they are not subject to FDA-regulated manufacturing controls or FDA inspection of manufacturing facilities.”

Weeks ago, the FDA updated its adverse events report through 2018, documenting “24 deaths of women associated with Mifeprex since the product was approved in September 2000….” The FDA also noted at least 4,200 additional adverse effects. Under 2016 changes, the drug’s manufacturer, Dancono longer has to report non-fatal adverse effects, so we can only imagine what the number really is.

Abortion Pill Deaths December 2018

Live Action News previously documented a larger push by pro-abortion organizations to lift the FDA’s REMS requirements, to expand abortion pill dispension to mail order and online sales, via self-managed abortions. And we also documented the secretive history of Danco’s investors, which include organizations such as the Packard Foundation and other abortion philanthropists, who appear to stand to gain financially from a broad abortion pill expansion. The original drug, Mifeprex, was approved in 2000 after being brought to the U.S. by the eugenics-founded Population Council.

The defiance by Aid Access comes on the heels of multiple pro-life bills being passed in several states. Pro-abortion organizations, who used to claim that self-abortions injure and even kill women, now appear willing to place them in harm’s way. In addition, when these same women experience serious complications from these dangerous pills, they are instructed to present to the ER and lie, claiming they had a miscarriage. Ironically, while the abortion lobby shows support to Aid Access, they simultaneously want to discredit the science behind abortion pill reversal.

abortion deaths

 

Abortion, whether committed by a skilled physician, a licensed LPN, or self-inflicted, is not health care and can result in serious complications where women may be injured and sometimes die. Women who fall victim to the lie that abortion will solve their problems, can be placing their lives at risk. And abortion deaths, whether from legal or illegal procedures, lay squarely at the feet of abortion advocates, not pro-lifers.

Today, as more states step up to protect the preborn child in the womb, abortion advocates are dredging up an old talking point, suggesting that making abortion illegal makes it less safe and causes women to die. What they fail to point out is that women are dying now from legal abortion — abortions they sold to women and abortions they committed. These dead women are then written off as a “complication” of surgery and are never mentioned or mourned by abortion advocates, as ambulance after ambulance transports women from Planned Parenthood and other legal abortion facilities. And the abortion-supporting media almost never mentions them.

Abortion proponents are very good at flashing images of dead women when it is convenient for them. But where have they been for over 40 years as women and teen girls lay bleeding to death after a legal procedure?

Keisha AtkinsLakisha WilsonTonya ReavesCree SheppardJennifer MorbelliChristin GilbertJamie Lee Morales. All women who have died from legal abortion. And the list goes on. You can see an even more complete list of “safe and legal” abortion deaths at the end of the video below — the list goes for minutes. Watch:

 

READ: Centers for Disease Control report reveals more deaths from legal abortion than we thought

Carolina Gutierrez received such a serious infection from the legal abortion facility she visited in Florida that doctors had to amputate parts of her body to try and save her life. But the infection won and Carolina and her unborn child became another statistic in the abortion battle. There have been multiple others, names of women the media barely whispers. Many who were mothers, sisters, and wives — all in the grave — because they believed the lie that legalizing abortion made it safe.

I took the picture of Carolina below with the permission of her family while attending her funeral:

Anyone that believes it is only illegal abortions that put women in danger of death need look no further than actual abortion and Planned Parenthood facility “consent forms,” which testify to the risks women can face from a legal abortion procedure.

The following serious risks can occur during a surgical abortion, according to an online abortion consent form from Whole Woman’s Health abortion facility:

  • Infection
  • Incomplete Abortion
  • Continuing Pregnancy
  • Perforation or Laceration (Tear or Puncture)
  • Bleeding or Hemorrhage
  • Anesthetic Reaction
  • Amniotic Fluid Embolism
  • Mortality Risk (death)

Planned Parenthood’s “risks” with early medical abortion include:

  • The pregnancy doesn’t end
  • Incomplete abortion
  • Blood clots in the uterus
  • Bleeding too much or too long
  • Infection of the uterus
  • Allergic reaction
  • Death

Case after documented case exists of women mangled, abused, or killed from legal abortion. Even Kermit Gosnell’s notorious “House of Horrors” abortion facility was kept functioning due in part to the so-dubbed “sisterhood of silence” which opposed oversight of Pennsylvania abortion facilities.

Even today, despite numerous warnings from the FDA urging women not to purchase abortion pills online, many abortion crusaders are facilitating the sale of these illegal and potentially dangerous drugs. Then, when women are injured or near death, these same scaremongers, some who defy the law and provide illegal abortions, advise women to lie to medical personnel, claiming they are experiencing miscarriages. How is this helping women? How are women to know the true risks of abortion if reporting agencies are purposely being lied to by patients?

Then, when a woman dies, who will they blame? The pro-life community, of course, for supposedly “making abortion less safe” by restricting it. And the abortion-friendly media will refuse to investigate, as always.

This strategy is nothing new; it was put into motion prior to Roe and now it is being dusted off and reused. Former abortionist and NARAL founder Bernard Nathanson wrote about it in his book, Hand of God(pg. 89-90):

Our favorite tack was to blame the church for the death of every woman from a botched abortion. There were perhaps 300 or so deaths from criminal abortions annually in the US in the 60’s, but NARAL in its press releases claimed to have data that supported a figure of 5,000. Fortunately, the respected biostatistician Dr. Christopher Tietze was our ally. Though he never actually staked himself to a specific number, he never denied the authenticity of these claims.

According to a September 13, 1967, article in the Berkshire Eagle, Tietze called the 5,000 illegal abortion deaths “unmitigated nonsense,” at a conference sponsored by the Harvard Divinity School and Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. Foundation.

So, how many women actually died prior to Roe? Read about that here. and here.

Over half of Planned Parenthood’s non-government revenue still comes from abortion

Posted in Abortion trimester, Abortion weeks gestation, Planned Parenthood abortion cost, Planned Parenthood abortion numbers, Planned Parenthood abortion revenue, Planned Parenthood abortion stats, Planned Parenthood Abuses, Planned Parenthood Annual Report, Planned Parenthood Complicit Machine covering sexual abuse, Planned Parenthood Decreasing Services, Planned Parenthood late term abortion, Planned Parenthood Medication Abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2019 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood, Abortion corporation

 

Planned Parenthood’s estimated abortion revenue totaled more than half (52%) of the organization’s non-government health services revenue, reaching nearly $200 million ($190.3) for the second year in a row, according to an analysis conducted by Live Action News.

The stunning numbers confirm what Planned Parenthood’s new president Dr. Leana Wen claimed when she identified abortion as Planned Parenthood’s “core mission.” As Live Action News previously documented, in 2017, although Planned Parenthood claimed abortion made up just 3.4 percent of its services, the abortion vendor was able to increase abortions nearly four percent (3.54%), from 321,384 in 2016 to 332,757 in 2017, the highest number committed by the corporation since 2011.

Planned Parenthood at 100 prominent image of founder Margaret Sanger

To calculate the latest data, Live Action News used the same methodology utilized in 2016: examining revenue and median abortion costs and comparing them against reported abortion totals in Planned Parenthood’s 2017-2018 annual report, in which the organization reported committing 332,757 abortions.

1. Average cost of abortions 

Planned Parenthood’s website notes the cost of a surgical abortion:

An abortion in the first trimester can cost up to $1,500, but it’s often less. The price of an abortion depends on where you get it (hospitals are often more expensive), and whether or not you have health insurance that will cover some or all of the cost. The cost also varies based on how long you’ve been pregnant — a second-trimester abortion usually costs more.

It also says this about the cost of a medication abortion:

The abortion pill can cost up to around $1000, but is often less. The cost of a medication abortion varies and depends on where you get it and whether or not you have health insurance that will cover some or all of the cost.

However, this year, Live Action News was able to locate more specific pricing at Planned Parenthood’s website.

Early Abortion/ Medication Abortion Pill

  • Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate” the Guttmacher Institute, reports that the average amount paid for an abortion in a nonhospital setting at 10 weeks’ gestation and with local anesthesia was $508, in 2014. The average paid for an early medication abortion (up to 9 weeks’ gestation) was $535.
  • However, at Planned Parenthood, the cost of medication abortion in Indiana or Kentucky is $600, while in Kansas it ranges from $650-$700 and $700- $815, and in California Planned Parenthood charges $600- $750.

For our measurement, we will use $508 for early surgical abortions and $600 for medication abortions.

Here’s what a medication abortion entails, according to former abortionist, Dr. Anthony Levatino:

 

In-Clinic Surgical Abortion

  • 13 – 13.6 weeks $625
  • 14 – 14.6 weeks $650
  • 15 – 15.6 weeks $800
  • 16 – 16.6 weeks $825
  • 17 – 17.6 weeks $950
  • 18 – 18.6 weeks $1000
  • 19 – 19.6 weeks $1100

For our measurement, we will average Planned Parenthood’s Ohio abortion prices and use the $1,195 price for abortions past 21 weeks, although they are likely higher.

Abortions in the second trimester are often called dismemberment abortions as described in the video below:

 

2. Number of abortions by trimester

Live Action News broke down the 332,757 Planned Parenthood abortion numbers as follows:

  • Medication abortions: 103,155 (31 percent per Guttmacher’s most recent abortion data)
  • Abortions 13-15 weeks 20,631 (6.2 percent per Guttmacher 2014.)
  • Abortions 16-20 weeks 12,645 (3.8 percent per Guttmacher 2014.)
  • Abortions 21 weeks and greater 4,326 (1.3 percent per Guttmacher 2014.)
  • First trimester surgical abortions: 192,000 — the remaining balance of abortions.

3. Estimated abortion revenue: $190,274,370

To determine Planned Parenthood’s estimated abortion revenue, Live Action News multiplied the number of abortions by trimester with the average cost of abortions, as follows:

  • Medication abortions: 103,155 (31%)  x $600 = $61,893,000
  • Surgical abortions (first trimester): 192,000 (balance) x $508 = $97,536,000
  • Surgical abortions (13-15 weeks): 20,631 (6.2%)  x $650= $13,410,150
  • Surgical abortions (16-20 weeks): 12,645 (3.8%)  x $970= $12,265,650
  • Abortions after 21 weeks: 4,326 (1.3%) x $1,195 = $5,169,570

Total estimated abortion revenue using these figures is $190,274,370

Percentage of abortion revenue

We then broke down the percentage of abortion revenue using figures from a revenue statement located in Planned Parenthood’s 2017-2018 annual report.

Planned Parenthood 2017 to 2018 annual report Revenue

Note that there are two sources of revenue for “health services,” which include:

  • Government Health Services Reimbursements & Grants (taxpayer dollars) – $563.8 million
  • Non-Government Health Services Revenue – $365.7 million

Percentage of non-government health services revenue: 52%

If we divide Planned Parenthood’s estimated abortion revenue ($190,274,370)  by the total non-government health center revenue of $365,700,000, we find that abortion makes up 52 percent of Planned Parenthood’s non-government health services revenue.

Percentage of non-government health services plus tax dollar revenue: nearly 20.5%

However, even if we include the $563.8 million in government dollars with the $365.7 ($929,500,000 million), abortion revenue can be estimated at 20.5 percent of all Planned Parenthood’s health services revenue.

Percentage of all Planned Parenthood revenue: 11.4%

Then, if we include all revenue sources ($1,665,100,000), abortion revenue would exceed an estimated 11.4 percent.

According to our calculations, over the past few years, estimated abortion revenue has steadily risen at the abortion corporation:

    • 2017: Estimated abortion revenue: $190,274,370
    • 2016: Estimated abortion revenue:  $177,631,103
    • 2015: Estimated abortion revenue:  $164,404,332

Between 2016 and 2017 government funding to Planned Parenthood (over half a billion dollars annually) rose nearly four percent (3.69%) even though the abortion vendor has been embroiled in numerous scandals, abuses and fraud, including covering up for child sexual predators as well as disgruntled employees, claiming a toxic work environment and pregnancy discrimination.

With increasing abortions generating millions in revenue for Planned Parenthood (while national abortion totals decrease) is it any wonder why actual health services like cancer screenings and well women exams at Planned Parenthood have decreased? Planned Parenthood has vowed in 2019 to focus even more on their abortion “cash cow,” and if radical amendments such as the Equality Act or Medicare for All are passed, we can expect those numbers to skyrocket even more.

SHOCKING: Document from abortion group shows images of aborted fetuses

Lying to women: First-trimester abortion presentation shows recognizable aborted body parts

NAF Document shows aborted fetuses

 

Images of abortion victims recently unearthed in what appears to be a presentation connected to the largest professional association of abortion providers prove the humanity of the preborn child. While the abortion industry tells women that their preborn children are mere ‘clumps of cells,’ the images below reveal that they’ve always known the truth: preborn children, even in the first trimester, are recognizable as human beings.

Warning: The images below may be disturbing.

The 2009 slide presentation, “The Basics of First-Trimester Surgical Abortion Workshop,” is clearly marked “National Abortion Federation” (NAF) and indicates that it was either created by NAF or created for a NAF event.

The document does not refer to the preborn child as a baby, but rather as “the product of conception,” “specimen,” or “the pregnancy.” It instructs abortion providers to examine the “pregnancy tissue” because doing so “1) Assures that the pregnancy was successfully removed 2) Confirms your estimation of the stage of pregnancy and 3) May provide evidence of abnormal pregnancy.”

To do this, the document suggests three methods:

  • Strain the aspirate.
  • Float the specimen in water.
  • Use backlighting.

In “Tissue Examination,” the document instructs on how to identify the so-called products of conception, stating,  “Understanding what tissue to expect at various gestational ages will help in determining when you have successfully emptied the uterus.”

The majority of abortions are committed before the fourteenth week of pregnancy but women are not always given accurate information about fetal development at that stage, especially early in pregnancy.

  • According to Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate” and research arm, the Guttmacher Institute, “Two-thirds of abortions occur at eight weeks of pregnancy or earlier; 89% occur in the first 12 weeks.”
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) states that the majority abortions are committed at or less than the thirteenth week of pregnancy.

According to the 62-page presentation, fetal remains after a first trimester abortion would be visible as follows.

Three to seven weeks:  “Trophoblastic villi, (which are cells that form the outer layer of a blastocyst) will be “cottony,” fluffy, white, and nearly transparent… No Embryo.”

Eight weeks: “May see fetal parts, digits will still be webbed.”

Nine weeks: “Fragmented or intact fetal parts, including elbows and knees, digits no longer webbed.” The slide (image below) appears to show extremities, such as part of an arm and hand.

Ten to twelve weeks: “Fetus—at this point you should see all 4 limbs and other skeletal and somatic parts (ribs, vertebrae, calvarium, intestine, heart, eye spots, etc.)” Slide below:

Planned Parenthood’s abortion videos show how deceptive the abortion industry can be in their portrayals of the preborn child. The video shows the child as a “dot”:

 

Even though privately, some abortion industry workers admit that aborted children have recognizable body parts, they tell their “customers” it looks nothing like a baby. However, additional images of fetal remains included in the “first trimester” document (without specification to weeks) disprove this claim and can be seen in the images below:

Despite numerous denials that pro-life images are authentic pictures of aborted preborn children, these images, published by abortion insiders, are markedly similar to those published by Citizens for a Pro-life Society, Created EqualCenter for Bio-ethical Reform (CBR), and others, including some published by Live Action News. Despite the marketing deception from the abortion industry, they are clear and undeniable evidence that what is being “aborted” are not merely “products of conception” but tiny beautifully formed human beings deserving of protection.

Abortion profiteers often tell women that the preborn child is not identifiable — and in some cases, after being removed and torn apart by high-powered suction, that may be true, but only AFTER the abortion.

Below is a picture of Baby Riley, who was miscarried at seven-and-a-half weeks. Of course, any child aborted at this stage of pregnancy, when their tiny soft tissue is pulled apart by a high powered suction machine will most likely appear unidentifiable.

The truth is that, prior to that, a fetal heartbeat can be detected as early as five to six weeks gestation (3-4 weeks post-fertilization).

Stunning images of fetal development at the earliest stages of life have been published at Live Action News, which you can view here.
