Planned Parenthood is on the move. They are opening new facilities all across the country and, as is their nature, relying on deception and dishonesty to do so. In one high-profile example, they recently completed construction on a new 22,000-square-foot state-of-the-art death camp in Aurora, Illinois, that they readily admit was built with its true purpose and real owner’s identity intentionally concealed from the public. Of course, as the nation’s leading abortion profiteer, it is hardly news that Planned Parenthood would resort to fraud to accomplish their ends. In fact, compared to the other ghastly things they do, and considering the kind of people who make up the organization, deception and dishonesty is actually pretty low-level stuff.
When it comes to Planned Parenthood’s expansion plans, we need to be thinking about more than just the corruption that is used to accomplish them; we need to consider the possibility that there is a hidden agenda behind them. I am convinced that they are trying to address a financial issue that has been simmering for years.
It is no secret that a major problem for the abortion lobby is their rapidly dwindling number of facilities. From the peak years of the late 1980s, approximately two-thirds of the abortion clinics in America have closed permanently. We also know that this is primarily being driven by the abortion industry’s inability to hire abortionists and other staff. In the 1980s, most of Planned Parenthood’s death camps had all the abortionists they needed including reserves in case one of the “regulars” went on vacation.
Today, the reserves are long gone and most facilities are forced to make do with just one contract killer on the payroll. As for the support staff, it’s pretty much the same story. Morale is abysmal, employee turnover rates are astronomical and there appears to be no relief on the horizon.
Of course, the Choice Mafia says this is a result of “pro-life violence” when, in fact, the amount of violence directed at the abortion industry over the years has been incredibly low. When the U.S. Department of Justice or the FBI publish studies on workplace violence, the rate of violence at abortion clinics is so statistically insignificant that it doesn’t even make it into the final reports.
So before we go further, let’s put this “pro-life violence” myth to rest once and for all. Even if you focus on the time period during which the most violence was committed against the abortion industry, it is clear that all of this arm-flapping and hand-wringing about pro-life violence is nonsense. Of the seven murders that have occurred at American abortion mills in the last 34 years, five occurred in 1993 and 1994 alone. However, according to statistics from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, during those same two years there were 2,154 other people killed in work-related homicides in the United States including seven school teachers, four members of the clergy, 10 lawyers, nine newspaper vendors, seven writers, six realtors, 22 waiters or waitresses, four groundskeepers, five architects, 40 garage or service station attendants, 23 auto mechanics, 21 janitors, 10 hairdressers, six farmers and four carpenters.
In other words, during the period of the greatest violence against abortionists in history, more farmers and twice as many hairdressers were murdered on the job than abortion clinic workers and abortionists combined. This does not even take into account the taxi drivers, convenience store employees, police officers, firefighters, and others who were killed during that same time period. The fact is, the Choice Mafia’s inability to recruit and keep employees has nothing to do with violence. It is a function of stigma and dollars.
Regarding the former, the abortion lobby always believed that legalizing abortion would eventually remove its stigma. But that never happened. What they didn’t understand was that abortion is like pornography and prostitution in that the stigma is related to the act itself and not to its legal status. That means the stigma is never going to go away. Today, the abortion industry finally seems resigned to this and has decided to accept that the stench of abortion is something they will just have to live with.
That brings us to the issue of money.
In the first few years of legalized abortion, studies were taken to determine the cost of an abortion. The findings were that, generally speaking, the price was between $300 and $350. Interestingly, those figures have changed little since then.
That raises an interesting question. With no competition and a seemingly reliable demand, why have they been unable to raise prices in almost 35 years?
The answer is that, contrary to appearances, the demand is not reliable.
In any marketing environment, all decisions fall onto a “marginal / non-marginal” scale. Decisions based on “want” are considered marginal while those based on “need” are classified as non-marginal. One major factor in determining where a decision falls on this scale is its degree of price sensitivity. The more price sensitive something is, the more marginal the buying decision is. This is true about all purchasing decisions, including the decision about whether to “purchase” an abortion or not.
Since day one, the abortion industry has wanted us to believe that when a woman does not want to be pregnant she will crawl through hell on broken glass to get an abortion. In other words, their contention is that the abortion decision is a purely non-marginal one. However, for that to be true, it would also have to be true that the cost of abortion does not significantly affect the abortion rate.
The evidence is that this is not the case. The financial publication, Economic Inquiry, Vol. XXVI, April 1988, produced a study about the relationship between abortion cost and abortion rates and found that, “The significant inverse relationship between the price of abortions and the abortion rate confirms that the fundamental law of demand is applicable to abortions.” In other words, as the cost of abortion goes up, the demand goes down. This group’s findings have been replicated by other studies that also examined the link between the price of abortion and the rate of abortion.
Perhaps even more revealing is a quote from Colorado abortionist, Warren Hern. During a May, 1997, annual meeting of the National Abortion Federation held in Boston, Massachusetts, the subject was the use of ultrasound in abortion. Hern complained that paying for the ultrasound machine would increase the cost of an abortion by $25. In his own words, this would cause the patient load to plummet. What Hern was saying was that, not only does price affect the abortion rate, even small increases in price have an overpowering impact on it. This was nothing less than a confession that the abortion lobby’s “hell on broken glass” rhetoric has been a lie and that, in most cases, abortion is a marginal decision.
The obvious solution to the abortion industry’s current financial dilemma would be for them to raise prices to meet their increased costs and simply make more money off fewer killings. But as fiscally reasonable as that may sound, the abortion lobby knows that it is not really a viable option. They have long understood that, in order to maintain abortion’s legality, they need the political and cultural inertia created by a high abortion rate. So while higher abortion prices might solve their financial problems, the lowered abortion rate produced by them would threaten their political survivability.
The point is, the abortion industry has not raised prices for almost 35 years for one simple reason. They can’t. The problem they now face is that, during those 35 years, the cost of doing business has risen dramatically. That has put them in a kind of “Catch 22” situation. They can’t survive without raising prices, but they can’t raise prices and survive. In other words, even if they could solve the stigma problem, they still couldn’t generate enough profit to offer the kind of salaries needed to attract steady and permanent employees.
Enter Hillary Clinton.
It seems pretty clear that the abortion lobby believes that Slick Hilly is going to be the next president. They are also counting on her to install a system of socialized medicine that will include abortion. So even though they rally the troops with red-meat rhetoric about Supreme Court appointments, it could be that what they are most giddy about is government-funded abortion. It could also be that this is the force now driving Planned Parenthood’s sudden nationwide expansion. They see Hillary Care getting larger in the rearview mirror and are positioning themselves to be a major player in it.
Maybe I’m just baying at the moon here, but if there is one thing I know for certain it is this: the moment national healthcare becomes a reality, the cost to the taxpayer for an abortion that now costs about $350 will, instantly, be many times that amount.
The fact is, a model for that scenario already exists. Imagine that two women are sitting in an abortion clinic waiting to have identical first-trimester abortions. One is paying cash; the second has a health insurance policy that covers abortion. The first woman will probably get out the door for the usual $350 or so. But make no mistake about it, the second woman’s insurance company will be lucky to escape with anything less than a $3000 claim to pay.
That scenario is repeated at abortion clinics all across America every day. It is also why the abortion lobby sees Hillary Care as their salvation. They are relying on socialized medicine to solve their current financial problems by transforming $350 private-pay abortions into $3000 government-pay abortions. The icing on the cake is that, since the customers will be offered these abortions for “free,” the abortion rate is guaranteed to skyrocket.
Like I always say, if you want to understand the abortion business, just follow the money trail. Right now it leads to Rodham and Gomorrah.
