Human Chop Shop (Planned Parenthood nickname)

A “chop shop” is an auto body “shop” where vehicles are “chopped” up for their parts. Abortion clinics have also been called “chop shops.” “I agree with everything Chris says except the Planned Parenthood recommendation.  PPs are chop shops who are the nation’s largest provider of abortions” was cited in print in 1996.

In July 2015, video of a Planned Parenthood official discussing the body parts of aborted fetuses made national news in the United States. “Planned Parenthood is ‘a human chop shop.’ What a great way to characterize it” was said by conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh in response to a caller on July 15, 2015.

Wikipedia: Planned Parenthood
Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), commonly shortened to Planned Parenthood, is the U.S. affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and one of its larger members. PPFA is a non-profit organization providing reproductive health and maternal and child health services. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Inc. (PPAF) is a related organization which lobbies for pro-choice legislation, comprehensive sex education, and access to affordable health care in the United States. In recent years, Planned Parenthood has begun to move away from the pro-choice label to words and phrases that more accurately reflect the entire range of women’s health and economic issues.

Planned Parenthood is the largest U.S. provider of reproductive health services, including cancer screening, HIV screening and counseling, contraception, and abortion. Contraception accounts for 34% of PPFA’s total services and abortions account for 3%; PPFA conducts roughly 300,000 abortions each year, among 3 million people served.

I agree with everything Chris says except the Planned Parenthood recommendation.  PPs are chop shops who are the nation’s largest provider of abortions.  They pretty it up with superficial “counseling”—but, the choices/alternatives they offer are limited.

The question I have for you, PJ, regards your use of the phrase “Planned Parenthood ‘chop shops’”.  Are Planned Parenthood Clinics what you’ve been referring to all along as ‘chop shops’?  If so I’m sorry I didn’t ask for clarification long ago.  I don’t think you can argue that Planned Parenthood runs ‘chop shops’.  What is your definition of a ‘chop shop’ and why do you alledge that Planned Parenthood Clinics fit your definition?

Let’s see now, can you picture this.  The woman in question is undergoing an emotional crisis when she decides to have her unborn child killed in an abortion clinic.  While she is signing the abortion legal papers, it would be easy to con her into “donating” her child’s body parts “for the good of science.” Then, the chop shop employee gives the questionable “donation” form to the harvester who, in turn, pays $500 to use the chop shop facility to harvest 2 legs, including hip joints. The leftover scraps of chopped up baby will be ground up in the sink disposal unit.  And, PARs fuss at me for calling abortion clinics “chop shops?” Why? That’s what they do.

CALLER:  I am so thrilled to talk to you.  Mr. Snerdley told me I could weigh in on the Planned Parenthood chop shop if I promised to behave, so I’ll try.  I just want to point out some more the left’s hypocrisy even now. They’re saying it’s just a clump of cells, just fetal tissue, but their “menu” lists kidneys and livers and organs.

RUSH:  (...) You’re exactly right.  Planned Parenthood is “a human chop shop.” What a great way to characterize it.

@PPact your person admitted you treat babies like stolen cars in a chop shop. That’s just reprehensible.
