    Planned Parenthood describes itself as “many things to many people.” That is true, in large part, because Planned Parenthood is in reality not what the organization presents itself to be.

    For example, in the words of Planned Parenthood, abortion is “a very small part” of its operations, but simple math demonstrates that Planned Parenthood’s abortion business brings in, at bare minimum, a non-trivial 99 million dollars a year. Planned Parenthood has promoted the idea that re-directing funding away from Planned Parenthood to other providers would cause women to “lose access” to “mammograms,” while no Planned Parenthood clinic is even authorized to perform mammograms. And although Planned Parenthood routinely seeks to undermine its critics as “political,” it is Planned Parenthood that is, as Cecile Richards has said, a “kick-butt political organization.”[ii]

    Countless “white lies” are the building blocks of Planned Parenthood’s façade. The following three claims in particular need to be deconstructed as an illustration of the depths of Planned Parenthood’s duplicity.

    “Abortion is only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s services.”

    “You know, mammograms…”

    “Untainted by a political agenda.”
