Planned Parenthood Has Record Abortions
JR recently wrote that 2012 wasn’t a good year for freedom … and that includes freedom for the unborn.
Planned Parenthood performed a record 333,964 abortions, while contrceptive services have dropped by 12% since 2009 and cancer screening & prevention services have dropped by 29%. So, next time a liberal tries to tell you that Planned Parenthood isn’t about abortion, but about women’s health and de-funding it is part of the “war on women” ….
Put in perspective, 334 thousand is roughly the equivalent of every man, woman and child in metropolitan Montgomery, Alabama or Peoria, Illinois.
Planned Parenthood received 45% of its funding through government grants and medicaid.
In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood reveals that it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011 – a record year for the organization.
According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687.
Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer funding, according to a Susan B. Anthony List analysis of the report, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. The amount is 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenue.
“While government subsidies to Planned Parenthood have reached an all time high, so too has the number of lives ended by this profit-driven abortion business,” SBA List’s President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. “Destroying nearly one million children in three years is not health care and does not reflect a concern for vulnerable women and girls.”
Contraceptive services at Planned Parenthood have dropped by 12 percent since 2009, and cancer screening & prevention services have dropped by 29 percent.
