What is PP 3%?
Do you know what percentage of Planned Parenthood funds are used toward abortion? At the time this was created it was three percent. THREE percent. And crunching numbers in 2019 looks like it may be down to just two percent. One little number… one HUGE argument. Planned Parenthood health care providers are saving lives (and millions of taxpayer’s dollars). As I learned and sketched, the coincidental design came to life.
I love this piece as a conversation sparker. On planes, subways, in classrooms and grocery stores. “This little charm? It refers to 3% of Planned Parenthood services being abortions and 33% of what I paid for it went straight to Planned Parenthood. You think it’s higher than 3%? Good for you. Stats are arguable and can be sliced a billion different ways. Two, three, four, twelve or more? Whatever percent you think, that works great. It’s THESE numbers that matter to me…”
Nearly five million women, men, and adolescents worldwide

Whatever percentage of Planned Parenthood services are abortions, they have my loyalty, appreciation, and 33% (or more) of every purchase of a PP3% jewelry. A Nice World is proud to support Planned Parenthood and to spark the 3% conversation, in order inform, connect and to get beyond it. Learn about Planned Parenthood and all they do, for all of us.
