Letter: Reducing abortion

On Jan. 27, there was a March for Life in Washington, D.C., Denver and Glenwood Springs. More than half the population is pro-life. Planned Parenthood says that abortions have decreased. If that’s true, that is great news.

Last November, Planned Parenthood raised $25,000 versus $1,500 that it wanted from Garfield County taxpayers. More great news for Planned Parenthood. It shows that county, state and federal taxes are not necessary to stay open. They get support from those who want abortion on demand and are willing to pay for that service.

Planned Parenthood is not free. All services are on a sliding payment scale. Insurance is accepted along with cash, checks, credit card and money orders. Payment is due at the time of service. Despite misconceptions, mammograms are not provided at any of the Planned Parenthood clinics. They also advertise pre-natal services. Odd for an abortion clinic. Medical abortions (the abortion pill) cost $465. An ultrasound cost $90. Texas requires an ultrasound prior to an abortion. Needless to say abortions have decreased in Texas.

Ronald Reagan said it best. “I’ve notice that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.” Amen.
