The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has reported 332,278 abortions in 2009, the last year for which full statistics are available. That figure represents an increase over the previous year. During the same year, Planned Parenthood’s report shows that the organization helped just 977 women obtain adoptions, and provided 7,021 women with prenatal services. Thus the group provided roughly 50 abortions for every 1 instance of prenatal service, and more than 1,000 abortions for every adoption. The 2009 figures show a drop in both adoption referrals and prenatal care.
“Despite its protestations that abortion is only a small part of its services,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, “Planned Parenthood has increased its number of abortions for 15 straight years. During that time, it has gone from committing 9.3 percent of all abortions in the United States to committing 27.5 percent.”
Taxpayer dollars for Planned Parenthood last year was over $360M; for which they say none was spent on abortion – pure nonsense. PP continues its unmitigated dishonesty; it’s beyond the pale to taxpayers. As has been said, all elections have consequences.
