Planned Parenthood Touts Abortion Prevention

    In what can only be described as chutzpah, Planned Parenthood used the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision not to reveal how many abortions have taken place in America since 1973 (over 55,000,000) or were performed by Planned Parenthood during that same time (about 6,000,000), but rather how many abortions PP prevented during 2012:
Planned Parenthood health centers provide health care that helps women prevent an estimated 486,000 unintended pregnancies and 204,000 abortions every year.
    Of course what Planned Parenthood is referring to is contraception since the organization's records indicate only about 2,300 adoption referrals in 2012. Furthermore, since PP considers the "morning after"/Plan-B abortifacients as "emergency contraception," there is no telling how many of those "486,000 unintended pregnancies" PP claims to have helped prevent were actually abortions also.
