Squad member Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) helped Planned Parenthood trend on Thursday night, after she shared during a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing on “Birthing While Black: Examining America’s Black Maternal Health Crisis” that she is “a Planned Parenthood baby” and wanted to talk “talk about how many lives Planned Parenthood has saved and how many babies have been because of the prenatal care provided by Planned Parenthood.” The congresswoman seemed to anticipate how bizarre her remarks might seem. “If you don’t believe it, and if you’ve never met a Planned Parenthood baby, I’m happy to let you know that I am one and that my mother received and relied on prenatal care from Planned Parenthood when she was pregnant with me,” she also said.
Yes, Planned Parenthood provides prenatal services, or so they say. According to their own most recent annual report from 2019-2020, there were 8,626 prenatal services. When it comes to how many abortions, however, there were 354,871. The organization performs more abortions than any entity in the United States.
By these numbers, then, it would make more sense to say that “a Planned Parenthood baby” is one who never actually got the chance to be born, since he or she would have been lost to abortion. From Townhall.
