Hello! I'm new to this board. I am a very passionate prolifer and not for religious reasons. I wasn't sure if any of you had heard or seen this film before. It is very moving to say the least. I was able to find it on youtube. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THS2zZ4m260. I hope it works. I would love to hear feedback if you watch it! Thanks!

>I believe one could properly label Planned Parenthood as an extremely bias source.<


I can see where you'd come to that conclusion, however, Planned Parenthood isn't JUSt about abortions. It's about gynecological care. They provide gynecological services and refer pregnant women who wish to continue their pregnancies to clinics that can provide equally affordable OB care. If I read right, some of the PP clinics DO offer prenatal care.

Some do offer prenatal care from what I understand AND docs make a heck of a lot more of pregnant women than abortions so if they are offering both (and money talks) I highly doubt they are pushing abortions down anyones throat.

um. More anecdote, which is weak, I know, but the physician I spoke to at PP a few weeks ago was being paid a straight salary for one day per month, completely independent of how many procedures or how many hours he worked. The RNs were salaried, and the counselors were paid an hourly wage. None of the workers that I came into contact with were paid "per abortion". I cannot find any financial incentive for pushing abortion.

Okay that is probably true....very believable for Planned Parenthood since they are not-profit and must

In our little borough, the PP would do initial pregnancy care for anyone still undecided, and if the decision was made to continue the pregnancy they would refer to a hospital that does deliveries. They were certainly equipped to do all the prenatal care up to the delivery, but if there's time it's considered better to hook a woman up with the facility that will deliver her early in the pregnancy to allow her to become more comfortable.

It might be different in a place where the PP doesn't have a good relationship with a hospital with a big community care clinic for the underinsured, but I haven't heard of any PP that does deliveries. So that would naturally follow into minimizing the prenatal care as the women are referred to sites that do deliver. But that's all extrapolation.

"Please do correct me if you find an error in my theory but I would guess that women going to Planned Parenthood for prenatal care don't have insurance."

I actually did have insurance for the three years that I went there (for pap smears, some health problems like recurrent UTI's (seemed to be sex-related) and BCP), but my insurance was so bad it was cheaper to go to them than anywhere else. I can tell you that I never heard the word "abortion" uttered in the building. It was all "protection, protection, protection." When I moved down here, I got a primary doctor who was also a gyn so that took care of that.

The only horrible experience I had there was the time I had a pap smear and they were training a medical student who had never done one before. Now that was an experience!
