My ignorance is this. I'm not well versed on the intricacies of PP. I know they provide health services to the poor especially women in regards to sexual health and welfare. I "think" they provide abortion services.

My question is this. What is found there that is not found at state/county health departments and OBGYN's? Or even your personal MD?

Good question.

All PP "services" are easily available from other providers.

We will get Members furiously dis-agreeing soon.

Just make sure you "fact check" the claims you will be hearing.

You'll hear all kinds of miraculous things about how women everywhere will be dying without them, but they are mainly an urban provider.

Apparently, the rural poor get to die on their own.

But really what it is is that there a lot of providers that do what PP does for poor women, it's just that PP has the preferred position with the left and thus the biggest voice.

My understanding is the services offered are vastly reduced in cost comparative to doctor visits without healthcare.

Slight alteration.

What is found there that is not found at any state,county health departments,free clinics,other clinic,doctors offices that accept medicare,medicaid, and is on the affordable care act exchange?

Planned Parenthood.

Apparently it's the only place that offers 'healthcare' services in this country.

Margaret Sanger Founder of Planned Parenthood In Her Own Words


On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
"...human weeds,' 'reckless breeders,' 'spawning... human beings who never should have been born." Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

On sterilization & racial purification:
Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

On the right of married couples to bear children:
Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace." Birth Control Review, April 1932

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12
...
On the extermination of blacks:
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," she said, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon

On respecting the rights of the mentally ill:
In her "Plan for Peace," Sanger outlined her strategy for eradication of those she deemed "feebleminded." Among the steps included in her evil scheme were immigration restrictions; compulsory sterilization; segregation to a lifetime of farm work; etc. Birth Control Review, April 1932, p. 107


THIS is what women were marching in support of.

Exactly. It was eugenics.

Planned Parenthood was originally formed to purge the world of poor, minorities, mentally disabled, and anyone else that "thoroughbreds" consider as undesirables.

It's just like the Nazi concentration camp furnaces, but starting before the person has a chance to be born.

PP more than makes it up, selling aborted baby parts for money...gross...

I went to PP once when I was a very young girl for a type of birth control that wasn't available in my area. (Very rural area, just wasn't available here yet. It was available shortly thereafter)


I went one other time to have a procedure simply because their price quoted cheaper than my usual OB-GYN, probably by hundreds of dollars. (Then I did not have health insurance)
The PP around here do abortions.

I am neutral on Planned Parenthood. Some things I agree with and some things I do not.


ETA: I have to travel more than an hour to get to a PP.

The Negro Project


The Negro Project was initiated in 1939 by Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. It was a collaborative effort between the American Birth Control League and Sanger’s Birth Control Clinical Research Bureau.1 For a eugenist, it wasn’t controversial, it was integral to the implementation of eugenics to eliminate the ‘unfit’. Eugenics is “a science that deals with the improvement (as by control of human mating) of hereditary qualities of a race or breed”.2 Negative eugenics focused on preventing the birth of those it considered inferior or unfit. This was the foundation of Sanger’s Birth Control Policy and advocated throughout her writings, speeches, and her periodicals including “Pivot of Civilization”, “Plan for Peace” and countless Birth Control Review articles.




“…those of us who believe that the benefits of Planned Parenthood as a vital key to the elimination of human waste must reach the entire population, also believe that a double effort must be made to extend this program as a public health measure to Negroes who need is proportionately greater.”

— Dr. Dorothy Ferebee (black physician serving as the Chairman of the Family Planning Committee of the National Council of Negro Women) in presentation at 1942 annual meeting of the Birth Control Federation of America (Planned Parenthood) . (One should note that, today, both Planned Parenthood and the National Council of Negro Women are radically pro-abortion.)



Sanger wrote that “the ministers work is also important…offering to train him in their ideals because “we do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members”



Frederick Osborne, President of the American Eugenics Society (1946-1952) declared after the Supremely wrong Roe decision: “Birth control and abortion are turning out to be great eugenic advances of our time.” Eugenicists fought for decades to eliminate those they considered “unfit”.

There are over 13000 clinics in the US where women can get the same type of assistance as planned parenthood (including mammograms). They have about 650 locations in the US. So, less than 5 % of clinics are associated with PP.

I am not against it but I am against Federal Funding. Medicaid is already in place. 500 million to PP and 75% of the funding comes from Medicaid.

Eugenics. Yes. That is why there was a split.

In Canada, planned parenthood does all of the women's reproductive health issues, which frees up time at doctors' offices for other types of medical issues.
Mammograms, birth control, family planning, yearly gynaecologist exams.

**but doctors also do that ⬆️, it's just another option.

Up here, they do not do abortions, those are performed in hospitals before the 20 week stage by a doctor, maintaining privacy.

In the US, I'm assuming that they also help free up time at doctors offices, so that other medical issues can be done there in a timely manner.

They're kind of like specialists in their field.

We have plenty of hospitals, doctors, and clinics to provide services.

Within 10 minutes of my house, there are several major hospitals, about seven urgent cares, and... I would guess at least 50 or more doctor offices, including medical centers.

The locations of PP are generally in urban areas - and these almost always have plenty of other healthcare alternatives.

If the US wants to keep PP, then fine.
But I don't want my tax dollars funding their eugenics and murder.

I'm not against the service it provides. I am against using federal dollars however.

I'd also like to ask in regards to PP, is it a set price or is it a sliding scale? Or perhaps certain criteria need be met before using?

Basically, it is a "non-profit" tax exempt corporation that brings in $1.3 billion dollars per year, including about $530 million in taxpayer reimbursements.

It's president and CEO, Cecile Richards earned almost $600,000 last year.

I guess the silver lining is how low that salary is compared to other government propped up businesses.


530b is a large taxpayer burden. I'll see if I can dig up a source.

$530M not B
