We Called 100 Planned Parenthood’s–Here’s What We Found Out…

Despite being an organization that champions “choice,” we had a hunch that Planned Parenthood doesn’t actually care about choices for women. So we made some calls.

We’ve contacted nearly one hundred Planned Parenthood affiliates so far, asking a simple question: Do you offer ultrasound?

If they answered yes, we ask how much it costs. Each clinic had a different answer to our question, but one thing was clear. Women are being manipulated.

Here’s what we found:

  • 41% of the affiliates we’ve called don’t offer ultrasound at all
  • 82% either don’t offer ultrasound OR they only offer it as part of an abortion appointment or for determining the age of the baby
  • Of the affiliates that offer ultrasound, 60% charge upwards of $200 and sometimes as high as $760!

One affiliate recommended we go ahead and schedule the abortion at the same time as the ultrasound to save money on their bundled package.

This information makes it hard to believe that Planned Parenthood is really all that vital for “women’s reproductive health.” It seems the only thing women would be missing out on if Planned Parenthood shut its doors is abortion.

And despite popular belief, the majority of women who have turned to abortion felt like it was their only option. According to the Medical Science Monitor, 64% of post-abortive women said they felt pressured by others to abort and 54% of post-abortive women said they were not sure about their decision to abort at the time. This is not empowerment — this is a symptom of a lack of resources and information provided to women in their time of need.

Research shows that 78% of abortion-minded women who receive an ultrasound choose life, and on our Stork Buses that number is 4 out of 5. In peering through the window of the womb, women are able to see their child for the first time, witnessing the truth of what is happening inside their bodies. 

Unfortunately, many women considering abortion never get the chance to see their unborn child. This is either because the abortion clinic they visit doesn’t offer ultrasound, or they charge up to $760 for it!

$760 to see an image as powerful as an ultrasound?

An ultrasound image is one of the most powerful tools in offering women options besides abortion. This is a clear attempt by the abortion industry to hide crucial information from vulnerable women in unexpected pregnancies.

If you agree that withholding information from women is an injustice, would you help us out? We offer ultrasounds outside of abortion clinics for free, but we can’t do it on our own. Start a Facebook fundraiser so that you can help us continue to provide life-saving ultrasounds for FREE!

Raise $760 to stand with the women who are being manipulated by Planned Parenthood. You’re just two clicks away from saving a life.

DEAR READER

We hope this article enlightened and inspired you to stand up for life.

Despite the overturning of Roe v. Wade, abortions are still prevalent in our nation. As a response to the overturning, the media: from the news to entertainment sources to even political figures and celebrities, have pushed abortion as an ongoing agenda, shaping the way this generation thinks and acts. Misinformation is being spread every day, and people are sadly believing the lies.

Our articles and stories aim to tell one thing: the truth.

We know that it is both a blessing and a challenge to understand the reality of abortion, because knowledge incites belief, and belief incites action. But we’re in this together. We believe that we can make abortion unthinkable.

With your support, we look forward to a future where young women are empowered to fight for their own rights: a right to bring life into the world, to be fearless leaders, to be examples of hope, strength, and undeterred resilience. We look forward to a future where life can happen.

If this article strengthened your belief to reach women everywhere with the truth and to let life happen, then please consider helping us extend our reach by making a gift right now. Your gift of just $10 or $20 helps our mission to create a story of hope and empowerment for every woman facing an unplanned pregnancy.

We aim to create a culture that views “pro-life” as equivalent to having empathy and compassion, providing holistic care (before and beyond pregnancy) and education, and most importantly, choosing to speak and act in love. We are pro-life, pro-love, pro-woman, pro-solution.

Don’t just be part of the movement, be part of the solution, and give today.
