What is $313.29 worth to you?

What is $313.29 worth to you? If I handed you that amount in cash, what would you do with it? Save it? Spend it on travel? Gifts for yourself, family, or friends? Pay bills? Give it to charity?

Three hundred thirteen dollars and twenty-nine cents.

Looking at Amazon today, it would barely cover the cost of a 12,000BTU air conditioner ($294.99). It’s the cost of a Fender electric-acoustic guitar with case ($299.99). It’s a 40-inch screen TV ($279.99) and barely enough to cover the sales tax, besides.

$313.29.

It doesn’t look like a lot.

You know what else it would buy though?

Yeah. Exactly.

And Then There Were None, a group whose stated goal is “to provide financial, emotional, spiritual, and legal support to anyone wishing to leave the abortion industry,” last week released an image from a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Aurora, CO recieving an award for having performed more abortions in the first half of the fiscal year 2013 than the second half of the 2012 fiscal year. The photo was widely circulated on Facebook and various news sites, and you are more than welcome to Google it. Today, ATTWN followed up with a video exposing the 2010 financial statements of a Planned Parenthood in Bryan, TX. In order to meet their financial goals, that particular abortion clinic had to perform a certain amount of abortions at a certain price to stay in the black, all while phasing out other medical services including adoption referrals and prenatal care.

The cost of each of those “procedures”?

$313.29

The cost of a life.

  1. Harsh facts that everyone tries to ignore but in reality it’s all true 😦

    • Harsh, extremely, but since I seem to be on a quote kick today, I’ll leave you with my friend C.S. Lewis:

      “If you look for the truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort, you will not get either comfort or truth – only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.”
