Don’t people rely on Planned Parenthood for basic healthcare?

Planned Parenthood presents itself as an indispensable partner in the American health care system. However, their own numbers show they provide only a narrow range of services to less than 1% of the U.S. population each year.

Despite Planned Parenthood’s name, prenatal care amounts to less than 0.1% of their total annual services. They provide less than 1% of manual breast exams each year, less than 1% of pap tests, and zero mammograms. They make only 1% of annual STD diagnoses.

Planned Parenthood does not provide such basic healthcare as treatment for diabetes, back pain, colds and flus, bodily injury, or mental health issues. They offer little to no pediatric care, and some centers even instruct parents not to bring children with them to appointments.
