Planned Parenthood Ran a Black Friday Deal

So, the fact that I can practically guarantee you that they didn't have a doctor in there the day after Thanksgiving, doesn't matter at all does it? I mean, just from experience in talking to the workers at our local PP, they only perform abortions 2-4 days out of the month. Somehow, I bet Black Friday isn't one of them. So the local PP sent out a flyer about discount women's health services on a day where many are off work already, and in a position to maybe get a cheap cancer screening or pelvic exam before the rush of the holidays. Scary stuff, I know...

"ONLY" perform abortions 2-4 days a month! Wow... how cheap human life IS to people like you. What an idiot. Tell me... what's the price of taking a human life at Planned Barrenhood these days?

Under standard regulations for health care, the type of services you've mentioned can only be performed under the observation of a physician. It's required by law under the licensing standards for health care providers such as PAs and NPs.

PP has been allowed to circumvent the regulatory and legal requirements that are considered to be "best practice" standards for health care providers. In other words, they support providing low quality care to those who obtain services via PP. Why? Because it increases PP's profit margin.

Just because they don't have a doctor on the premises providing abortion services, doesn't mean that they don't have doctors present supervising the procedures I just mentioned.

While I don't doubt that many PP's fail to follow "best practices" at times, and don't always have a doc on premises when they should, the women who visit PP as their primary care provider are at an extreme economic disadvantage, and may not be able to obtain them otherwise. While I wish it was the best care modern medicine can provide, sometimes that's just not possible, but that doesn't mean these women should get nothing just because its not perfect. But I share your concerns about the quality of care, Robin.

You have to see this to believe it:



NewsBusters said it best: “Planned Parenthood brings new meaning to the term, “Black Friday,” doesn’t it?”
