An intriguing analysis of Planned Parenthood's business model was recently published by a UK-based magazine. Planned Parenthood's years of operating history provided the basis for a thorough statistical analysis, providing useful clarity in this highly politicized time. The analysis concludes that:
- A 99% positive correlation between Planned Parenthood's government support and its abortions;
- This 99% statistic contradicts often-heard suggestions of there being no connection between public funding and abortions, and suggests that future Obamacare support of Planned Parenthood will only lead to more abortions;
- For every $1MM of taxpayer money, Planned Parenthood consistently delivers 949 abortions;
- An 81-87% positive correlation between Planned Parenthood's contraception distribution and its abortions;
- This 81-87% statistic directly contradicts Secretary Sebilius' assertion of a negative correlation between contraception and unintended pregnancies and suggests that more Obamacare-supported contraception will lead to more abortions;
- Planned Parenthood's contraception distribution creates an annual abortion demand backlog equal to 60-70% of its annual abortions;
- Planned Parenthood's major business lines are abortion/emergency contraception, sexually transmitted diseases/HIV and contraception distribution;
- Planned Parenthood is not health care in the sense of an annual well woman exam, but more akin to a lifestyle business with an annual customer repeat rate of 4x per year and a frequent flyer programs that offer discounts to return customers (40% discount to returning HIV testers);
- Planned Parenthood does target children through its push to offer Plan B contraception to sub-17 year olds, through its own admission of targeting adolescents, and, yes, by soliciting the Girl Scouts; and,
- The Planned Parenthood business model has a precedent; that being a drug dealer who offers freebies early in hopes of higher ticket sales when the customer is desperate. It is a "no choice" business model.
