New study disputes Planned Parenthood claims

Planned Parenthood building 2A new study clearly demonstrates the U.S. could do without Planned Parenthood quite nicely.

Planned Parenthood touts its healthcare services as the primary thrust of their organization, but a Charlotte Lozier Institute study recently repudiated that claim. Dr. James Studnicki, vice president and director of CLI's Data Analytics, co-authored the research and took a look at Planned Parenthood services, such as the one that supposedly helps people with STDs.

Dr. Studnicki discussed his findings with OneNewsNow, explaining that even though Planned Parenthood does conduct a tiny bit of treatment, they mostly provide testing for their customers.

"For most of the services they provide, treatment is a very, very tiny fraction and most often less than 1 percent of the total national service," says Studnicki. "But for some of their contraceptive services, their national market share can climb up as high as 4, 5, or 6 percent."

But, in fact, many of the services provided by Planned Parenthood are easily replaceable. For example, as OneNewsNow previously reported, Planned Parenthood breast cancer exams are actually the same type women can do at home themselves.

And according to Studnicki, all of Planned Parenthood's offerings are a direct contradiction to the term "life-saving."

"Nothing that Planned Parenthood does would lead us to indicate that withdrawal of their services would be life-threatening or result in death," stated Studnicki. "Most of what they do is relatively superficial."

Yet, Planned Parenthood has cornered the market for abortion, performing 35 percent of them nationwide. By comparison, General Motors has 17 percent of the auto sales market and Southwest Airlines garners 19 percent of domestic air travel.

While Planned Parenthood promotes itself as essential to healthcare, Studnicki says that such fiction is essential to justifying the half-billion dollars in annual taxpayer funding it receives.
