Planned Parenthood

The US Population Research Institute is calling for US Govt funding to abortion group Planned Parenthood to stop. In 2009 Planned Parenthood committed 337,000 abortions, reports PRI. Abortion is lucrative business. While ‘only’ one in 10 patients coming for an abortion, it does $1b in business each year. One third of their money comes from abortion, 1/3 from the Govt ($US363m). It spends millions each year lobbying in places such as the Philippines, which has pro-life laws.

Abortion New York

Rosendal shares her experience when she challenged abortion providers at a recent Commission on the Status of Women in UN headquarters. ” It became very clear in New York: thousands of people work hard to make abortion possible.

LaTrobe Abortion Promo

La Trobe University in Melbourne featured a full page advert for an abortion clinic, the Fertility Control Clinic in East Melbourne inside the front cover of its student diary, according to the March journal from Saltshakers. The advert does not mention the word “abortion” or even the expression “termination of pregnancy. The diary also contains info about the Rainbow Room – room for ‘gay, lesbian and bisexual students.”

Action: Saltshakers asks students at university to talk to the university about what they are promoting and the issues that you confront.
