A brand new report from Americans United for Life uncovers serious deficiencies about how the abortion industry, led by Planned Parenthood, harms women and lacks basic safety standards.
The entire report, available here, exposes evidence collected from 32 states and hundreds of abortion facilities and abortionists to compile the report. The data from the report was collected over a period of eight years, since 2008.
The report documents that “227 abortion providers in 32 states were cited for more than 1,400 health and safety deficiencies between 2008 and 2016.”
Additionally, 39 Planned Parenthood facilities in 15 states (Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, and Virginia) are cited in Unsafe (http://unsafereport.org/).
Why is this important? Because Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, and their buddies in their abortion industry consistently say they support women, that evil pro-lifers want to take away safe abortion access, that any kind of regulation meant to bring abortion facilities and abortionists to the same medical standards as any other surgical facility is an “attack against women.”
According to Unsafe, this entire line of messaging is based in some alternate reality where abortionists aren’t killing women, where women aren’t getting maimed during an abortion, and where women aren’t walking into an abortion facility that has hundreds of health violations.
Remember the Whole Women’s Health Supreme Court case this past summer? The Justices overturned a Texas law that was meant to stop another Kermit Gosnell-like situation. Planned Parenthood and their supporters cheered loud and clear that day by the way. Women deserve better than abortion, better than Planned Parenthood.
