With more than 10 million abortions performed each year in the U.S., it’s no surprise that the abortion industry is booming.
But it’s not all good news for pro-lifers: the abortion rights movement has come under fire for its reliance on fraudulent medical claims and deceptive marketing tactics.
The pro-life movement’s biggest financial supporters have also been caught red-handed in the fraud.
These include: the Abortion Industry Group (AIG), a lobby group that represents the abortion lobby, including Planned Parenthood, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the American Association of University Women (AAUW), and the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE).
The abortion industry has a long history of misleading the public about the health benefits of abortion.
It’s no coincidence that these groups are among the biggest financial contributors to the pro-choice movement.
According to the New York Times, these three organizations have made more than $20 million in campaign contributions since 2000.
In addition, the National Abortion Federation (NAF) has spent more than half a billion dollars on ads since 2004.
The abortion lobby’s strategy has been to capitalize on the anti-abortion hysteria to bolster its position on abortion.
The most prominent of these ads is a series of videos released in 2006 by the anti, anti-choice group Americans United for Life.
In these videos, an organization called the Abortion Institute claims that abortion kills up to 25,000 unborn babies per year.
The group even cites the National Academy of Sciences report that claimed the “most reliable data” on abortion’s impact on pregnancy rates was the “Guttmacher Institute” report, which claimed the U-turn was based on “a study that used a methodology that included flawed data and misrepresented the quality of the research.”
The videos went viral, with a petition calling on Congress to defund the National Institute of Health and to defund Planned Parenthood.
But the videos were part of a wider campaign to demonize the abortion movement and to portray pro-abortion advocates as liars.
The AIG and NAF, along with the American Coalition for Life, a group that advocates for abortion rights, have also funded the antiabortion movement’s attack ads.
The anti-life group American Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecols (ACG) also gave $1.4 million to the anti abortion group Americans for Prosperity in 2012.
The American Congress for Life has also spent millions on anti- abortion ads, most recently in 2014, as it worked to discredit Planned Parenthood in the wake of a deadly series of mass shootings.
These groups have received tens of millions of dollars from abortion industry allies in the past five years.
The number of abortion clinics is expected to continue to grow.
In 2015, the number of clinics increased to 1,600, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
But many abortion clinics are still shuttered and the number that are operational is limited.
The Center for Reproductive Rights reports that the number and the type of abortion services available vary greatly among abortion clinics, with only 24% of facilities currently offering abortion services.
In Texas, abortion providers operate in 17 counties, while the vast majority of facilities are located in Texas.
According the Center for Public Integrity, some Texas abortion providers also operate out of other states, with the exception of some that are federally licensed.
In Louisiana, abortion clinics were also targeted in a controversial 2014 law that allowed localities to close abortion clinics that performed more than 100 abortions per week.
Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell has claimed that the law, which was backed by the National Rifle Association, is intended to “protect unborn children from abortions.”
The law was ultimately overturned by the Supreme Court.
According for the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the legislation allowed “states to restrict access to abortion services and to punish abortion providers for providing safe and legal abortions.”
Despite the increased pressure from anti-lifes, the pro life movement continues to stand firm on its opposition to abortion.
In fact, the anti life movement has received so much support from the abortion community that some pro-rights advocates have taken to referring to the abortion advocacy movement as the “pro-life party.”
The New York Post recently referred to pro-lifer Johnnie Cochran, a prominent anti-government activist, as the president of the pro abortion party, noting that Cochran has a “platinum membership card” from the American Congress Action Fund (ACAF).
Cochran’s organization, the Johnnie “The Rifleman” Cochran Political Action Committee, has received $2.8 million in contributions since 2006, according the Center.
Cochran is also the chairman of the John Birch Society (JBS), which has received nearly $4 million in donations from the anti rights movement.
In the wake “of the Charleston massacre, JBS issued a statement declaring that ‘the Bible is the only source
