No to Planned Parenthood!

Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, an affiliate of Planned Parenthood (PP), the largest abortion business in the nation, plans to open a 7,000 square foot facility on Claiborne Ave in 2014. This multimillion-dollar “New Orleans Health Center” will become a regional abortion center in the heart of New Orleans, leading to an increase in abortions in New Orleans.

PP consistently shows a trend of driving women to choose abortion instead of options that are less financially beneficial for PP, such as adoption or prenatal care.

  • PP is the nation’s largest abortion business, performing approximately 1/3 of U.S. abortions (PP performed 333,964 abortions in 2011, more than the population of Orleans Parish).
  • PP abortion numbers have continued to increase, as national abortion rates have decreased or remained consistent.
  • PP Performs abortions on 9 out of 10 pregnant women who walk through their doors.
  • PP performed 145 abortions for every one adoption referral in 2011. Abortions that year were 92% of PP’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care accounted for 7% and adoption referrals for 0.6%.
