RUSH: Rebecca in the West Village in Manhattan. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. You’re the most famous person I’ve ever spoken to.
RUSH: I’m flattered. I’m flattered.
CALLER: All right.
RUSH: Not surprised, either, but I’m flattered to all get out.
CALLER: All right. Well, here’s my question, get right to it. So I was looking at the stats on Planned Parenthood’s website, and it says that only 3% of their services are abortions. So I was just super curious, why does the left spend so much time politicizing and protecting abortion rights when they are such a small part of their overall quote, quote, services?
RUSH: I think that is misleading. Only 3% of their services are abortions?
CALLER: That’s what it said.
RUSH: You know, what you need to look at the out there, Rebecca, is the percentage of their annual income derived from performing abortions, and you will find out that it’s over 80% of their operating income.
CALLER: How did you learn to, like, find that question?
RUSH: Well, they hide it. Go look at the Guttmacher Institute. That’s one of the research arms of Planned Parenthood. They don’t call it Planned Parenthood. G-u-t-t-m-a-c-h-e-r. It’s one of their propaganda firms, and it’s disguised as an independent think tank devoted to the issues of women’s equality and so forth. Actually, it’s an adjunct of Planned Parenthood.
I have not seen that 3% stat, but I will guarantee you that is as misleading as anything the left tries to mislead you about. That only 3% of the services? They do not do mammograms. By the way, if you believe that they provide mammograms — and they publicly say this — they do not. They do not do that. They advertise for abortion. They seek women to have abortions. If there’s an adoption clinic, say, right next door or very close to Planned Parenthood outlets, Planned Parenthood will have somebody out there trying to talk that young woman out of going into the adoption place.
RUSH: I mean, they’re bullish on abortion. They advertise it, they promote it, and they have been caught on videotape negotiating the prices of body parts that have been collected, that have accrued after they have performed the abortions that they have.
Here’s the thing, Rebecca, beyond the specifics. The fact of the matter is that this group with that number is purposely trying to deceive. Abortions only 3% of our services? That’s all Planned Parenthood does. That literally is what they’re in existence for, is abortion. And the fact that they’re trying to say that only 3% of the services they provide are abortion, something tells me that there may be a PR problem they’re trying to overcome by downplaying their role in abortion.
Because, believe me, it’s the only reason they exist. Planned Parenthood originally, as designed by Margaret Sanger, was a eugenics movement. And its purpose was to rid the population of certain undesirables, various races. They wanted to breed according to intelligence and breed out certain things, like low intelligence. It was horrible, the origins of this group. And the fact they’ve been embraced by people like Harvey Weinstein, what does that tell you?
RUSH: We’ve had a great cross section of calls today, everything from the concepts of net neutrality to a 12-year-old expressing curiosity and love for the Rush Revere Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans history book series. And people requesting clarification of the statistics that Planned Parenthood puts out about abortion. By the way, the number of abortions they performed 2015-2016, recent numbers, up over the year before, as is revenue to the organization.
