On January 4, 2020, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) released its 2018-2019 Annual Report. In the report, Planned Parenthood wrote:

We continue to bolster our Federation to become more nimble, responsive, and impactful. We are leaning into governance practices that will better allow us to center our patients — all while driving our diversity, equity, and inclusion work to ensure that our staff, Boards, and supporters reflect the people we serve. 

Two days after releasing the 2018-2019 Annual Report, Planned Parenthood announced the implementation of a major restructure in New York State that illustrates the organizational changes that have been permeating Planned Parenthood for the last two years.

On January 6, Planned Parenthood announced the formal launch of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY). The new affiliate is composed of what used to be five separate Planned Parenthood affiliates. Those affiliates were Planned Parenthoods of: New York City, Nassau County, Mid-Hudson Valley, Mohawk Hudson, and Southern Finger Lakes. PPGNY will operate 30 centers across 65% of the state.

Laura McQuade, President & CEO of Planned Parenthood of Greater New York, told reporters “PPGNY will increase access to high-quality, expert health care to more New Yorkers, including access to birth control, cancer screenings, and safe legal abortion. With Planned Parenthood of Greater New York's stronger and bolder voice in advocacy, we will energize supporters and create lasting change in New York."

Of course, PPFA’s latest annual report documented its rise in the number of surgical and medical abortions as well as increased spending on “advocacy.” Readers may wonder how much more advocacy is needed in New York State after Governor Cuomo signed the outrageous Reproductive Health Act last year that opened the door to unfettered abortion and moved abortion from New York’s criminal code to its health code. The fact is, Planned Parenthood will not be happy until abortion is available to every woman on demand, with the government paying the bill. It will also demand sex education at every grade in every school, in-school clinics, promotion of every deviant lifestyle, and the removal of parents from the lives of their children.

As Planned Parenthood consolidates its affiliates across the country, this year’s annual report documented many of the digital weapons it is deploying for the battle. Illustrations of these weapons reported on by Planned Parenthood in its annual report include:

TelemedicineAllowing Planned Parenthood to prey on teens and vulnerable women using cell phones and other devices:

MEET ROO

A chatbot designed to push Planned Parenthood philosophy on unsuspecting young people by answering questions from anonymous users.

  • In Roo’s first six months: 744,776 anonymous conversations.
  • Sexual health experts also had 187,169 one-on-one conversations this year through Chat/Text, which is now fully integrated with Roo, allowing users to switch seamlessly from the chatbot to a sexual health expert.

Planned Parenthood is streamlining its operations and increasing its digital presence to promote the primary goals of its founder;

  1. Promote uninhibited sexual activity.
  2. Limit the number of births through birth control, including unconstrained abortion.
  3. Eugenics—the purification of the race through selective breeding.
    1. After decades of targeting the Black population, and succeeding at reducing its numbers, Planned Parenthood is turning its attention to the Latino community. It highlights Promotores de Salud (Health Promotors) in its latest annual report. It describes the program as being first launched in the early 1990s in Los Angeles to bring experts in sexual and reproductive health to “communities that too often don’t have access to the resources they deserve.”

The program has spread and, in 2017-2018, 218 promotoras reached 82,661 people at 16 Planned Parenthood affiliates across the United States.

Planned Parenthood currently runs five in-school clinics in Los Angeles and expects that number to grow to 50 schools by June, 2020. Students do not need parental permission to use the in-school clinics and parents are not notified of student visits.

It is time for people all across the country to rise up and protect their children, born and preborn, from the ravages of Planned Parenthood.
