Plencner 1 Gregory Plencner Professor Yelena K. Bailey-Kirby English 102 section 1010 2 November 2015 Planned Parenthood Pro-Life or pro-choice, two terms that seem to be an ongoing debate of the society today in the United States. Planned Parenthood is a very controversial topic as of lately in terms of these two phrases. There seems to be a good chunk of society that believes Planned Parenthood is just an abortion clinic. According to O’Malley from Politifact, “97% of all Planned Parenthood services are non-abortion related, and in reality decrease the risk of an unwanted pregnancy.” By Planned Parenthood consistently being funded individuals will be able to continue decreasing the risk of an unwanted pregnancy, prevent the risk of sexually transmitted diseases, and being provided proper cancer detecting tests for a better and healthier lifestyle although the opposing side disagrees with these reasons and stance.

Planned Parenthood strives to prevent an unwanted pregnancy and does so by assisting in the use of birth control prescriptions and the proper use of condoms.

Since 1970, Planned Parenthood has performed more than 6 million abortions. In 2013 alone Planned Parenthood performed a record of 327,000 Abortions. “Roughly one out of every four abortions in America is carried out in a Planned Parenthood facility.” Planned Parenthood has killed nearly 6 million babies alone and did not give them a living chance or choice. Women have a choice on what they choose to do with their body and the host living off of them. It is the woman’s right to live not the fetus growing inside her as harsh as it sounds. Now let us take the 6 million recorded abortions and the 327,000 abortions that appeared in 2013. From Planned
