No, Planned Parenthood Is Not "Primarily An Abortion Provider"

Blog ››› ››› MIKE BURNS

On Fox & Friends Saturday, Fox News host Mike Huckabee repeated the right-wing talking point that Planned Parenthood is "primarily an abortion provider." Huckabee said that "it's tragic that the Planned Parenthood organization" tries to present itself "as primarily a health organization when they are primarily an abortion provider." He added: "They provide some services. I will grant you that. But they are maybe on the fringes -- are external portion of what they are primarily all about."

In fact, abortion services made up just 3 percent of Planned Parenthood's medical services in 2010.
