Mike Huckabee says asking Planned Parenthood to give up performing abortions is like asking McDonald's to stop selling hamburgers – they won't because there's too much profit involved.

"You can call it a 'mission' all you want, but that's where the money is," the former Arkansas governor and two-time presidential candidate writes on his blog MikeHuckabee.com.

Huckabee noted President Donald Trump's offer of a compromise to Planned Parenthood (PP), saying the group could keep their government funding to provide health services to women in exchange for stopping abortion procedures.

"PP swiftly rejected Trump's offer, with its president Cecile Richards tweeting, 'Planned Parenthood is proud to provide abortion — a necessary service that's as vital to our mission as birth control or cancer screenings,''' Huckabee said.

"So when you hear the argument that PP is all about women's health services, you now know how they define that. And that they are actually 'proud' of performing an estimated 300,000+ abortions every year.

"But let's be honest: abortion is far more vital to Planned Parenthood's mission than cancer screenings. That haughty rebuke to Trump didn't bother to mention that abortion is PP's #1 profit center."

He said Planned Parenthood performs less than 1 percent of all Pap tests in the U.S., less than 2 percent of all breast cancer exams, and zero mammograms, but does over 30 percent of all abortions.

"According to research by the pro-life group Live Action, abortion accounts for about 90 percent of PP's services to pregnant women. Only one out of 160 pregnancies in PP clinics is referred for adoption; the rest are aborted, Huckabee said.

"Asking PP to give up abortion would be like asking McDonald's to stop selling hamburgers. You can call it a "mission" all you want, but that's where the money is."
