What Planned Parenthood's New Logo Should Really Be
So how is PP doing financially. to hear them moan every time the threat of defunding comes up, you would think that they are barely breaking even. Not so. Yes, $542.4 million or 45.2% of their annual budget came from government funding. That helped PP have a profit of over $87.4 million. Or as they like to label it to maintain the legal fantasy, excess over expense. That much isn't exactly a small excess that you would normally expect. & when you look back to how much "excess" they have had since the 2000-2001 fiscal year, the total comes to $771 million. So much for their non-profit claim.
Despite the claim that abortion is only 3% of their services, it provided 56% of their income. Add to that they do not provide mammograms, the number of breast screenings has dropped 20% in the last 2 years, cancer screenings are down 29% over the last 2 years, contraceptive services are down 11% over the last 2 years & the total number of clients served has decreased. Finally, we have the fact that PP is expecting all of its affiliates to begin providing abortions in the next few months. Add to this the fact that even those affiliates who do provide abortions at some sites are expanding the number of sites they do them at (like here in DBQ) & closing down sites that don't. That means that the number of abortions done will definitely go up making it a larger part than ever of what they do.
So instead of the new logo they came out with above, maybe this one might better reflect what Planned Parenthood is really about:
