According to the May 20th edition of the Denver Post, "Planned Parenthood says it will close clinics in Longmont, Parker and four others in the region, citing a tough financial landscape in the reproductive health care field due to effects of the Affordable Care Act. 'We supported the ACA because we love the idea of more people having health insurance and increasing access to the critical services that they need, but a lot of our patients were self-pay.' said Whitney Phillips, spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. 'They would come in and get a pap smear and pay out of pocket. Under the ACA a lot of patients were given the opportunity to be on Medicaid. Again, that is wonderful, but it meant that rather than bill them directly we had to bill Medicaid. And Medicaid reimburses at a very low rate.'"
Well there you have it. The Socialist Democracy of Amerika's top abortion mill is having to close some of its shops because Obamacare has made them unprofitable. What a wonderfully ironic state of affairs this is. PP used to be able to bill the women who came in to kill their babies directly but now, thanks to Obamacare, all of those women are now receiving Medicaid. As the recipients of the socialized government health care program known as Medicaid they no longer have to pay their own bills. Unfortunately for PP however is the fact that Medicaid, like all other government programs, is horribly inefficient. Companies that rely on income streams from Medicaid quickly go out of business because Medicaid does not pay enough to keep them afloat. So PP finds itself in the position of having to close some of its abortion mills because they are no longer profitable. What is not to love about that?
The article, written by a woman from Longmont named Karen Antonacci, went on to describe PP for the readers. According to Karen, as her friends call her, "Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization that relies on grants, donations, patient payments and insurance reimbursements to operate. The health centers provide sex education and preventive care, such as cancer screenings and birth control." Karen fails to mention the fact that PP is the country's number one supplier of premeditated murders of pre-born human beings. I wonder why?
According to this website, PP claims that killing pre-born human beings only makes up 3% of its total business. Imagine for a moment, if you will, the outrage at a company that willingly confessed that only 3% of its total revenue is derived from selling blacks into slavery in Africa or selling kidneys from Tibetan donors to wealthy Europeans in need of a kidney transplant. I think we all know that the 3% figure would be deemed irrelevant and that the focus would be upon the horrific things the company is doing with no regard to how much money is made as a result. (For the record, I believe people should be able to sell their kidneys on the free market if they wish to do so. Also for the record, I oppose chattel slavery.) So let's ignore the 3% argument for a moment and focus on the facts.
Is PP primarily a company that provides health services, in a highly discriminatory fashion by the way, to women exclusively? The answer to that question is yes. I wonder why they have not been fined by the federal regulators for discrimination? Is PP the primary provider of abortions to immoral women who desire to execute their pre-born human beings? The answer to that question is also yes. Here are the facts:
- The newspaper article touted the fact that women go to PP for Pap tests. PP provides less than 1% of all Pap tests conducted in the SDA.
- The newspaper article touted the fact that women go to PP for cancer screenings. PP provides no mammogram services. PP does provide physical exams for cancer. 1.8% of all physical exams for cancer are performed by PP.
- The newspaper article ignored the fact that PP provides 35% of all abortions that take place in the SDA. That comes to a whopping 300,000+ abortions per year.
Thanks to Obamacare it is more difficult for teenage girls and young women to conspire with a government approved hit-man to murder their pre-born human beings. For that I am thankful.
