Planned Parenthood and Abortion
Did You Know? Planned Parenthood is Wisconsin’s and the Nation’s Largest Abortion Provider and Advocate
Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin operates three of Wisconsin’s five abortion clinics located in Milwaukee, Madison, and Grand Chute (near Appleton).
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is the largest abortion provider in the United States and the primary advocate for abortion in the Congress, the state legislatures and the courts.
Here is what Planned Parenthood said in (circa) 1963:
“An abortion kills the life of a baby after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile so that when you want a child you cannot have it.”
The facts of creation of a baby haven’t changed – Planned Parenthood now chooses to deny them.
