Planned Parenthood: A Volume Institution for Aborted Fetuses

The latest video from the Center for Medical Progress is from a meeting with Cate Dyer, CEO of StemExpress:

Planned Parenthood, the organization that performs roughly 1/3 of of all abortions in the United States, tries to distance itself from abortion. Abortion, it insists, constitutes only 3% of all their "services."

"Planned Parenthod's pathetic '3 percent' lie" explains how the claim can be numerically accurate but far from true. They use a little accounting trick is called "unbundling." How much does it distort the reality? The Washington Post noted that if you calculate based on the 329,000 abortions Planned Parenthood does per year among 2.7 million patients seen annually, about 12% of total patients, or one in eight, is walking through the doors for an abortion. That's a far cry from what Planned Parenthood wants you to imagine.

The StemExpress CEO chatting to a couple of fetal tissue procurement people has no reason to try go downplay Planned Parenthood's abortion activities. And she names the biggest advantage of working with Planned Parenthood as compared to other abortion facilities:

"Planned Parenthood has volume, you know, because they're a volume institution."

I think that says it all.
