    PP is in the business of preventing babies....they don't really give a **** once the woman is pregnant and decides to keep the child.( most PP clinics don't provide prenatal care...and the few that do have only been in that business for a couple of years)

    if that's going to be the case, i'm going to look for a business to set up to hold Texans hostage to being my customers.... which seem to be a trend in this country.
    Sorry, it's not about that.
    It's about a State government trying to dodge a Supreme Court ruling they don't like.
    If you or any other citizen wants to take your business somewhere besides Planned Parenthood that's your choice.
    Government is not allowed to discriminate - and those laws protect all businesses, not just this one business this one time.

    In 2009, 97.6% of women who were pregnant and who went to Planned Parenthood got an abortion. That makes a total of 12% of the people who came into contact with them getting abortions. However, each of those did not only get an abortion. Each of them, as part of the regular abortive procedure, for example, also got a set of pamphlets (1 service: counseling) an STD check (1 service: medical) and a packet of condoms on their way out the door (1 service: preventative). So you count each of the 4 parts of the abortion visit as a separate procedure, and right away your 12% (assuming you count everyone who you see/talkto and give a pamphlet/condom to as having received a service) drops to 3%. Revenues from abortions, meanwhile, count for a little over a third of PP's income. That year they ran a profit of about $63 Million - abortions were their most highest profit margin portion of operations.

    So let's see, this report says that 88% of women who go to PP DO NOT get abortions. And you want to defund them because of that? That's insane.

    not necessarily. it says that 88% of people whom PP claims to have provided a service to do not get abortions - but that 97.6% of people who go to PP because they think they might be pregnant (and are correct) do get abortions.

    PP knows full well the impact of it's numbers, and so it counts everything it does as providing an individual service. If you have gotten free condoms at school congratulations - you are in those numbers as a PP patient.

    So 88% didn't get abortions. I would call that a pretty darn good.

    You gave a link to the National Review I'd like to the the actual report. And I'm looking for it.

    Even if it were true, how is that a bad thing?
