AUL Launches The Planned Parenthood Exhibits: The Continuing Case for Investigating the Nation's Largest Abortion Provider

“As the abortion mega-provider turns 96 this month, AUL will unmask the public relations façade it has too long enjoyed,” said AUL’s Dr. Charmaine Yoest.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (10-01-12) -- As Planned Parenthood prepares to celebrate its 96th birthday in October, Americans United for Life launches a month-long series of revelations – the release of “The Planned Parenthood Exhibits,” the continuing case for investigating the nation’s largest abortion provider. Each day in the month of October, AUL will release a new backgrounder that highlights grounds for investigating and, ultimately, de-funding Planned Parenthood, which receives more than one million dollars a day in taxpayer subsidies.

“While it is clear that the best public relations campaign that money can buy has provided Planned Parenthood with a measure of support, the untold story of this abortion-centric political force flies in the face of public perception,” said AUL President and CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest. “What America doesn’t know about Planned Parenthood is costing them millions. And sadly, women’s health and lives are at stake from the substandard practices of the abortion industry led by Planned Parenthood which fights all reasonable regulations and protections.”

On July 7, 2011, AUL released a landmark report, which documented “The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood” with primary source material, including many from the organization itself.  The weight of the evidence shows Planned Parenthood to be scandal-ridden, heavily taxpayer subsidized, and abortion-centric despite its efforts to claim otherwise.  AUL’s report contributed to the first-ever Congressional investigation of the abortion giant.

Dr. Yoest lays out an overview of efforts to hold the leading abortion provider accountable for its behavior, and its feeble response to substantive concerns. Exhibit 1, coming Tuesday, will begin the innovative investigation.
