Planned Parenthood promotes itself as “many things to many people,” but as the Americans United for Life Report documents, they are a scandal-ridden, heavily-subsidized abortion provider.
The AUL Report:
• Demonstrates that as Planned Parenthood has become more heavily subsidized by the government, Planned Parenthood has simultaneously become more abortion-saturated.
