Planned Parenthood plans to open six new clinics in Nebraska, and one is planned for Kearney. Planned Parenthood says it will provide reproductive health services needed in the community. All of those services are already provided, except for abortion.

The local non-profit Collage Center offers pregnancy tests, limited OB ultrasounds, after-abortion counseling, information on STDs and confidential counseling all free of charge. Other services are provided by local doctors.

What you rarely hear is that 97.6 percent of the pregnant women who go to Planned Parenthood get abortions, according to the American Life League.

Scripps Howard columnist Ben Boychuk has reported that “Planned Parenthood is one of the most profitable non-profits in the country.”

In the March 19, 2011 Hub Opinion, this quote from Boychuk was printed: “Between 2002 and 2008, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates took in more than $2.3 billion in government grants and spent just $657.1 million, according to a Government Accountability Office audit last year.”

Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in our country, and it makes money on them. 

Abortion is the killing of unborn babies, and I, for one, don’t want it in Kearney.
