If there is one argument in the abortion debate that just needs to go away, it’s the “3%” argument. You know what I’m talking about, right? It’s the first thing abortion supporters and Planned Parenthood fans love to say or post on everyone’s pro-life social media page. I’ll give you an example:
Abortion makes up only 3% of Planned Parenthood’s health services. Most people go to Planned Parenthood for birth control, STD testing, and cancer screenings.
The truth is that Planned Parenthood’s 3% figure is misleading, inaccurate, and simply not a good argument to support abortion. Here’s why:
1. How they get the number is bogus
When you look into how Planned Parenthood came up with the 3% number, you’ll realize it’s more proof that Planned Parenthood will go to great lengths to deceive us. Watch:
2. The number should be ZERO PERCENT
As a pro-life Catholic that wants to see an end to abortion, I really don’t care if it’s 99%, 50%, or even .001%. Until that number is 0%, I plan to keep fighting. Until abortion is not just illegal, but also unthinkable, I will continue to speak up. Our culture has accepted a lie. Abortion is never an acceptable solution.
3. Are you defending abortion or Planned Parenthood?
If abortion is such a basic right and should be de-stigmatized, why should it matter? And when you start asking why they should be low, the whole pro-choice argument falls apart.
4. What about clinics and doctors that only perform abortions?
Planned Parenthood is not the only place to go for an abortion. There are some doctors that open up clinics strictly for performing abortions. In other words, 100% of their services is abortions. So does that mean these doctors are monsters and PP isn’t that bad?
