As I wrote in 2009, Planned Parenthood conducted 305,310 abortions compared to 4,912 adoption referrals in 2007. For every one referral, Planned Parenthood conducted 62 abortions.
The numbers are far worse for 2010, though, according to Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report. In 2010, Planned Parenthood conducted 329,445 abortions and made 841 adoption referrals. A 392:1 ratio.
In response to my first column in 2009, a liberal friend countered that a wildly skewed ratio is understandable because Planned Parenthood is an abortion provider, and women don’t go there for adoption services. That’s self-evident. It doesn’t explain why, if Planned Parenthood is truly “pro-choice” and not pro-abortion, its ratio of encouraging abortion over adoption is so abysmally one-sided.
The answer, of course, is that Planned Parenthood is pro-choice only when it comes to one choice — abortion.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
