News from Focus on the Family:
Abortion Giant Loses Leader
After a dozen years at the helm of the nation’s largest abortion seller, Cecile Richards has announced she’s stepping down as president of Planned Parenthood.
As you read in our Jan. 26 email, Planned Parenthood’s annual reports paint the picture of a failing business, and the federal government – using your tax dollars – is footing the bill.
Under Richards’ tenure, Planned Parenthood received a 60 percent increase in public funding under the banner of “reproductive health” while at the same time the number of actual services declined.
That means the self-proclaimed champion of “women’s health” is taking more of your tax dollars and reaching fewer women.
While most pro-life citizens know that Planned Parenthood sells a lion’s share of the nation’s abortions, they may not know that under Richards’ leadership:
- Revenue increased by more than 43 percent
- The number of clinics decreased by 30 percent
- The number of clients is down by 23 percent
- The number of visits dipped by 20 percent and services by 10 percent
Richards’ departure from Planned Parenthood may bring new energy to efforts to defund the abortion giant, ending more than 20 years of taxpayer funding. It may also trigger changes in the organization’s abortion-business model, resulting in fewer abortions and centers selling abortions.
It’s time friends–it’s time to tell the truth about abortion.
It’s time to tell your family, friends, co-workers…anyone who will listen, the truth about the heartbreak; the shame and the loss of abortion.
The truth is NO WOMAN wakes up in the morning and hopes today is the day for my abortion.
Every woman wants it over fast.
Every woman wishes it wasn’t in her day planner.
Every woman prays for a different choice.
Every woman walks away with a little less of herself than before.
Every woman wants her children and grandchildren to know the truth about abortion and not to experience the heartbreak.
