Planned Parenthood set a new record. They performed 333,964 abortions in 2010-2012, which is the highest number for any one year in their history.
Planned Parenthood received $542.4 million in government funds during their latest reporting period.
The Baptist Press article describing this says in part:
WASHINGTON (BP) — Planned Parenthood has set a record for the number of abortions in its clinics, according to its newly released annual report.
“Americans are sick and tired of underwriting the nation’s largest abortion business.” –- Marorie Dannenfelser
The country’s No. 1 abortion provider said its affiliates performed 333,964 of the lethal procedures during 2010-11, the most recent year for which statistics are available. The previous yearly record for Planned Parenthood clinics was 332,278 in 2009.
Planned Parenthood also established a record for funds received from federal, state and local governments. It received $542.4 million in government grants and reimbursements during the latest fiscal year. Those public funds were nearly half of Planned Parenthood’s $1.2 billion in total revenue for the year. The organization’s revenue outpaced expenses by $87.4 million.
“Planned Parenthood has spent much of the last few years demanding that taxpayers add millions more to their coffers, citing their non-profit status and so-called focus on women’s health,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List. “What have we received for our money? 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.”
She added in a written statement, “As if these numbers weren’t already horrifying, Planned Parenthood has upped the ante even further by mandating that all affiliates provide abortions beginning this year. Americans are sick and tired of underwriting the nation’s largest abortion business.”
The abortion toll at Planned Parenthood actually is higher than its record-keeping for the year shows.(Read more here.)
