Requests for contraceptive services apparently are in decline at Planned Parenthood. And Planned Parenthood has decreased its cancer screening services by nearly a third. But public funding for Planned Parenthood continues to go up. As do abortions.
While Planned Parenthood set a record for the last fiscal year in pulling in half-a-billion dollars from the taxpayers -- amounting to nearly half of its funding -- it has been downsizing services other than termination of pregnancies (here). During the past three years alone, the nation's largest abortion provider has snuffed out the lives of a million unborn babies.
The Pro-Life movement may be winning hearts and minds (here). And praise God for His mercy in drawing the young people to Him.
In the meantime, we must not forget the grim reality that daily "terminates" innocent lives in abortion clinics around this country -- nearly a thousand littles ones destroyed each day in Planned Parenthood clinics, as that organization draws in hundreds of millions in taxpayer funds with the support of its primary patron in the White House. The Obama years are proving to be the most lucrative for the abortion industry.
Mary, Mother of God, pray for us.
