Topics We Cover On This Episode


Planned Parenthood's annual report is out.

During the 2016-17 fiscal year, abortions are up, taxpayer funding is up, total revenue is up, and other services provided decreased.

On this episode of the?40 Days for Life Podcast, Shawn Carney, Sue Thayer, and Steve Karlen discuss:

  • the congressional failure to defund Planned Parenthood and its role in Planned Parenthood performing MORE abortions in 2016-17

  • how the abortion giant has become more brazen in advertising its provision of abortion

  • what, exactly, constitutes an "adoption referral" at Planned Parenthood

  • which legitimate health care services were reduced as the number of abortions performed went up


Former Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer also discusses how most hospitals won't even accept most referrals from Planned Parenthood!
