+  Planned Parenthood: “Irreplaceable” and “Lifesaving”?

  • Description: "A new paper by Charlotte Lozier Institute (CLI) President Chuck Donovan and Dr. James Studnicki, CLI’s Vice President and Director of Data Analytics, finds that Planned Parenthood relies heavily on an abortion-centered business model and is not a significant provider of medical care in the United States. Planned Parenthood: “Irreplaceable” and “Life-Saving”? investigates two common claims made by and about Planned Parenthood. The authors conclude that Planned Parenthood is not only highly replaceable, providing a minuscule percentage of the national total for most of their non-abortion services, but that they could do more to save lives by ending their provision of abortion than by any other service they offer."
