Unhappy with abortion services

Doesn’t it seem odd that Planned Parenthood would claim only 3 percent of their services are abortions? Why would any organization put so much effort into defending 3 percent of their services? I believe it is bad enough that they perform abortions, it is worse that they want to sell the remains to make more money.

Planned Parenthood performs about 30 percent of the abortions in the U.S., 327,653, and dispense 1,440,495 morning-after pills by their 2013 numbers. By comparison they only provided 18,684 “prenatal services” and 1,880 adoption referrals.

Using Planned Parenthood’s math, I believe if a woman comes in to get some contraceptives, a breast exam, an STD test, a pregnancy test, and then an abortion she has received five services, and the abortion is only counted as 20 percent.
