What If Somebody Wiped Out Aurora, Colorado ... And Nobody Noticed?

Planned Parenthood Federation of America released their 2011-2012 annual report.  In it, they diligently enumerate all the wonderful services they perform, most highlighted in vibrant colors.  Strangely, "Abortion Services" appears in subdued gray text, almost as if they were embarrassed by the numbers.  As shown on page 5 of the 2011-2012 annual report, Planned Parenthood executed 333,964 abortion procedures in that year.  In contrast, Planned Parenthood referred 2,300 mothers to adoption agencies.

Let's put 333,964 "abortion procedures" into perspective.  Imagine if a gunman killed EVERY last person in Aurora, Colorado--the 56th largest city in the United States?  If a gunman killed that many people, it would make national headlines around the nation and the world, prompting immediate demands for more stringent gun control to end the "senseless slaughter of innocent lives."  However, when Planned Parenthood takes that many lives, nobody takes notice. 

Some will argue that Planned Parenthood provides some worthy services, especially for the poor.  That's true.  Similarly, some also claimed that the Nazi's provided good social services to some members of its society--all the killing aside.

Please note that Planned Parenthood only executes about 27% or a little more than one quarter of all abortion procedures in the United States.  There were an estimated 1.21 MILLION abortion procedures executed in the United States in 2007.  See Table 102. Abortions by Selected Characteristics: 1990 to 2007 from the United States Census Bureau.
