On October 16, Planned Parenthood officially turned 99 years old. So what does 99 years in business look like for the abortion giant?
A short list of Planned Parenthood's "accomplishments" over the past 99 years include:
1. Ended the lives of over 7 million children in the womb
This outrageous number doesn't even include lives taken by Planned Parenthood before Roe v. Wade.
2. Got caught on video negotiating prices for baby parts
A series of undercover videos by The Center for Medical Progress shows Planned Parenthood officials haggling over the price of baby parts, advertising the freshness of the baby parts they collect and sell, and discussing altering abortion methods to obtain intact body parts.
3. Failed to report the sexual abuse of young girls brought to its clinics
Planned Parenthood has an extensive history of ignoring child sexual abuse and enabling their predators. A recently released report presents a pattern of documented Planned Parenthood incidents involving sexually abused minors in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Minnesota, and Ohio.
4. Fought against common sense laws that protect women and children
These laws include those that would protect infants born alive after botched abortions, eliminate abortions after the 20-week period (with some exceptions) where science has proven that babies feel pain, and that require better care for women and higher safety standards in abortion clinics.
5. Weaseled its way into the public school system with Sex Ed programs that promote risky sexual behavior in children
Planned Parenthood says they teach young people to take sex seriously, yet they promote a casual attitude toward sex – starting with kindergarten-aged children. For older kids, they hand out condoms packaged to look like candy and even built a website where college students can brag about where and when they had sex.
6. Was involved in multiple lawsuits exposing misuse of taxpayer funds
In 2013, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, the Texas and Louisiana based affiliate of the world’s largest abortion business, paid $4.3 million to settle a fraud investigation. Other lawsuits include one by former manager and ADF client Sue Thayer alleging nearly $28 million in “repeated false, fraudulent, and/or ineligible claims for reimbursements to Medicaid.”
7. Bullied an organization that was actually doing something to prevent and treat cancer
When the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation decided not to partner with Planned Parenthood after the organization failed to meet their standards for receiving grants, Planned Parenthood released a coordinated media attack, ultimately, as Karen Handel, former senior vice president of public policy for the Komen foundation wrote in Planned Bullyhood, forcing Komen into continuing to give them grant money.
As she put it: “Planned Parenthood talked a good game about how we shared a mission—that both organizations worked to save women’s lives. Yet Cecile [Richards] was willing to cripple Komen over $680,000 in grants—less than one percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenues. The reality is that Cecile was willing to sacrifice Komen’s real work on behalf of women for raw political purposes that had nothing to do with serving women.”
8. Redefined sex and relationships
Planned Parenthood has been instrumental in developing birth control methods, including “the pill” in the 60’s. The intention was to free women to have sex like men – without consequences. There were consequences, however. The “sexual economics” changed and altered the way culture views relationships, marriage, and family. This video from the Austin Institute explains:
9. Targeted minorities for racial cleansing
Planned Parenthood is shrouded in a history of eugenics, thanks to its founder Margaret Sanger. See the truth about Planned Parenthood's shocking history in the video below.

99 years is more than enough for hundreds of millions of government funding to go towards a scandal-ridden organization with a sordid history. Join the movement to #DefundPP!
