What Planned Parenthood's New Logo Should Really Be

After the election last November, Planned Parenthood (PP) announced that it was changing from this logo that they have used since the 70s:
,
to this:

.

As you can see they made 2 changes. the 1 P overlaps the other rather than being inside it. Next they added the motto about "Care" below it. The idea was to make it seem like they provide health care for women, men & young people as well as care about them as people.
However, what has been revealed in the latest report (see links below for details) is that what they really care about is doing more abortions & making more money, both from insurance & esp us taxpayers, while doing so.
According to the report they did a record 333,964 abortions on during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. It is estimated that those abortions  generated between $150 to 174 million for the “nonprofit” organization. That means about 56% of their income was from abortions.
PP likes to say it provides women with information on all the alternatives & brags about how it will refer women for adoption. So what do the numbers actually show. In this case, that only 2,300 Planned Parenthood customers were referred to adoption agencies during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Or 145.2 abortions for each adoption referral.
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:
