Jim Sedlak, founder of Stop
Planned Parenthood International, spent several days in Nebraska recently to
educate and equip citizens in six Nebraska communities on how to resist
Planned Parenthood’s expansion into their community. These cities are North
Platte, Kearney, Hastings, Grand Island, Fremont and Norfolk.
A critical part of mobilizing citizens against
Planned Parenthood is to expose its dark and evil origins and underbelly.
Mr. Sedlak did this quite convincingly, not with speculation or hyperbole,
but with information gleaned directly from Planned Parenthood’s own public
What follows are ten reasons Mr. Sedlak presented
to oppose Planned Parenthood:
* Planned Parenthood (PP) runs the
largest abortion chain in the nation. In 2009, it
operated 304 abortion facilities and committed 332,287
* Pregnant women who go into PP
have abortions 97.6 percent of the time. Here’s the
breakdown for 2009: 977 adoption referrals, 7,021 prenatal
care, and 332, 287 abortions.
* Abortion accounts for 40 percent
of the clinic income at PP--$162.8 million out of $404.9
million in 2008-2009.
* Planned Parenthood has committed
more than 5,000,000 abortions in its own facilities
since its first abortion on July 2, 1970.
* Planned Parenthood comes between
parents and their children—pushing "confidential"
services for girls 11 years old and younger.
* Planned Parenthood sex education
programs are designed to teach children how to achieve
sexual satisfaction before marriage. Its outrageous
courses, web sites and printed material teach our children
it is okay to ignore their parent’s values and form their
own—at the earliest of ages.
* Planned Parenthood leads our
children into lives of sexual sin. Almost every religion
in America condemns sexual activity between unmarried minors
as wrong. Yet, PP tells these minors that it is okay. It
even uses ministers and pastors to push its agenda.
* Planned Parenthood lies to its
customers. It does not tell them, for example, that most
of its birth control products can kill newly-created human
beings in the womb or that girls on the birth control pill
are more susceptible to AIDS than those who are not on the
* Planned Parenthood demands
taxpayer funding for its nefarious activities from
politicians it helps get elected. In 2008-2009, PP says
it received $363 million in taxpayer money, which is about
one-third of its annual budget. PP has received more than
$5.2 billion from the taxpayer since 1973 and has banked
profits of $968.6 million during that same period.
* Planned Parenthood is simply a
corporation in the sex business that preys on our
children—primarily high school and college girls. According
to PP data, 70 percent of its customers are under the age of
25 and 25 percent are under the age of 20. Since PP only
counts the income of its customers (not their parents) to
determine eligibility for government programs, most of these
students are counted as "poor women."
In addition to Stop Planned Parenthood (www.stopp.org),
some other organizations have exposed the nefarious activities of PP,
including Lila Rose at Live Action (www.liveaction.org)
and Americans United for Life (www.aul.org)
www.ExposePlannedParenthood.net). As a result of the work of
these groups, Congress is now investigating PP.
Representative Cliff Stearns, Chairman of the U.S. House Committee on
Oversight and Investigations, announced last week that his Committee will
examine PP’s policies and actions "relating to its use of federal funding
and its compliance with federal restrictions on the funding of abortion."
Let’s pray that the light of this investigation will expose the real Planned
Parenthood and result in the revocation of tax payer funding to this evil
