In response to skeeter20's comment:
Not moving the goalposts, simply showing the 3% number is BS. Simple math:
1.8 million visitors, 334,000 abortions, or about 20%
The 3% number is fine and accurate; you just don't like it.
Again, the metric we're talking about is % of total services rendered - 11,400,000 - not the number of people treated.
Your stat only shows estimated number of abortions performed per capita.
Either way, it's wrong. PP estimates 3,000,000 people served, so your stat would mean 11% per cap maximum.
The fact is that not every PP clinic performs abortions, so 100% of visitors to a single clinic would mean a 0% per capita abortion rate.
The 3% number doesn't tell you anything useful. It counts every service, whihc is well, just deception.Does it tell you that 3% of the people there get abortions? No. It is a statistic for the low-information voter, you know, Obama supporters.
What doen't you like about reporting that 20% of the people who visit Planned Parenthood get an abortion? Other than it is a nmumber way bigger than 3%?
Don't you think the number and percent of the people who get abortions is more useful than how much money is spent on it?
