Planned Parenthood Admits: ‘We Don’t Offer Prenatal Care’

NewImage“Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care,” one worker said.

A damning new exposé released by Live Action exposes Planned Parenthood for exactly what it is – an abortion mill that lies to the public for taxpayer dollars.

In its shocking new video, Live Action notes that Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards, along with other Planned Parenthood advocates and supporters, famously tout the organization’s role in providing health care – specifically including “prenatal care” – to millions of women, particularly those with low incomes. Defunding the group, they claim, would deprive countless women of these necessary services, including their ability to get pregnancy care.

So, Live Action decided to test this theory, calling Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation and posing as a patient seeking prenatal care. And they didn’t have much luck.

One Planned Parenthood worker at a clinic in Tempe, Arizona responded, “Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care.”

“No, see, we don’t see pregnant women as a way of giving prenatal care, we see pregnant women, um, you know, if they are considering other options,” another employee at a Santa Fe clinic responded.

Two workers admitted they knew the name “Planned Parenthood” was “deceiving.”

In fact, Live Action stated they contacted 97 Planned Parenthood clinics across the organization’s 41 affiliates, and only five said they offered any form of prenatal care.

The Prenatal Care Deception

Though Planned Parenthood claims that women depend on them for prenatal care, Live Action investigators had an incredibly hard time finding facilities that offered it-though they found plenty offering abortions. Live Action contacted all 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates where undercover recording is permitted by state law, and only 5 facilities out of 97 said they provided prenatal care.
