"The closing of clinics across the South shows that Planned Parenthood’s intentionally ambiguous 3 percent statistic does not refer to the percentage of revenue earned from abortion procedures…Contrary to plannedparenthood’s PR, it exists for and is sustained by the taking of lives in the womb.” (First Things)
Some are arguing that it’s because of the new regulation. lol~ Oh, Hon. You know nothing about business. That 3% probably makes 70+% of their profits.
Nope they’re shutting down because of regulations placed on them. Pretty obvious that they would begin to close AFTER bills to ‘regulate’ them were passed?
marionettejones how do you not understand what a non-profit is?
Are you telling me that abortions are free? There are records indicating that they cost quite a lot—more if it’s late term.
I worked for a non-profit organization. It needs profit to survive. If you want to help more people, the organization should grow so the more profit the better. Heck, just to sustain it needs a lot of money. The money that is given us is usually not enough so we multiply it by creating marketable goods. Our org. just wants to spread awareness and resources for children with Autism. If we, a much smaller organization in SEA depends on profits(and is struggling), then PP being a large company needs it a lot more.
As far as I know, PP has a lot of backers. Heck, they were caught pocketing some of the money(in the millions), and lawsuits are filed against them. If they are really for serving the families then they won’t even think of doing that. Neither would they promote harmful sexual behavior like asphyxiation, whipping, and whatever. They did hire a youtube celebrity to promote bdsm and even put that in Sex Ed for MINORS. It makes one wonder if they are really trying to help or simply creating clients. If you ask me, PP IS a for-profit business.
As a clinic that does invasive medical procedures, it should already have the systems required in place that is up to hospital standards even before the bill was passed. Why it wasn’t regulated is appalling. Closing down rather than following the new regulations would indicate either not wanting to have a net loss(like any for-profit big business which I am also involved in) or it is simply against company policy to accept not giving abortions. PP after all started out as a white supremacist’s anti-poor/anti-blacks death machine. Once it was legalized, the back-alley abortionists simply got a government registered office.
oh-snap-pro-choice You seriously need to tell us why those restrictions were enough to close them down. You sound like a broken record saying that exact line to every reblogger who agrees with this.
