Planned Parenthood is hurting in Texas. Most abortions after six weeks gestation are prohibited. 

Suddenly, even though Planned Parenthood says that abortion is only 3-4 percent of its “services,” it says it is struggling.

In an effort to advertise its other products and attract birth control customers, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas is handing out free “empowerment kits” at its facilities.

According to Planned Parenthood, empowerment kits contain condoms, one dose of emergency contraception, two pregnancy tests and information about the law. According to published reports, Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas, which operates 24 centers in the state, plans to distribute 22,000 kits by the end of the year. 

Another Planned Parenthood affiliate in Texas, Planned Parenthood South Texas, is offering free emergency contraception pills until further notice.

The message seems clear, don’t stop having sex . . . just use our products. Those who read this newsletter know that emergency contraception acts in some cases as an abortifacient by preventing implantation of an already-created human being.

Clearly, Planned Parenthood is upset that it cannot continue to kill babies over six weeks gestation at its 10 abortion facilities in eight cities (Austin, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Worth, Houston, San Antonio, Stafford, and Waco) in the state. 

It is hoping that the emergency contraceptive kits will serve as “loss leaders” to get people coming to its clinics.
