Planned Parenthood Sees Record High Abortions, Taxpayer Funding

The new annual report released by the national Planned Parenthood abortion business shows it did more abortions in its last year than ever before in its history.
The new report released by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) shows the abortion giant did a record 333,964 abortions on unborn children during the 2011-2012 fiscal year. Those abortions were estimated to have generated $150 million dollars for the “nonprofit” organization.
While the number of abortions reached a record high, only 2,300 Planned Parenthood customers were referred to adoption agencies during the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
PPFA’s income included a hefty and ever-increasing check from American taxpayers. In 2009-2010, government funding reached a whopping $487.4 million. In 2010-2011 the figure jumped to $538.5 million. The total for 2011-2012 reached a staggering $542.4 million, which represents 45.2 percent of the group’s total annual budget.
“For decades now, Planned Parenthood has operated the most proficient killing machine in the United States,” said Douglas R. Scott, Jr., president of the Planned Parenthood watchdog organization Life Decisions International (LDI), a Planned Parenthood watchdog group. “And the machine has set yet another record.”
“Do you remember when Planned Parenthood was crying over the disastrous blow it claimed would have been done to healthcare for women if Susan G. Komen for the Cure were to stop funding the controversial group?” Scott asked. “‘Women will die! Women will die!!’ This is what everyone was told. Yet this ‘not-for-profit’ goliath ends every fiscal year with millions of dollars in ‘excess revenue over expenses.'”
Scott added, “The ‘excess’ for 2010-2011 alone was a record $155.5 million. In 2011-2012 alone, the excess was $87.4 million. Still, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates often make wild claims whenever a corporation, organization or government entity chooses to eliminate or cut funding. (Since the 2000-2001 fiscal year, PPFA has had a total “excess” of $771 million.)”
The organization informed LifeNews that, on June 30, 2012, PPFA had net assets valued at $1,244.7 billion, of which $474.5 million was unrestricted, essentially making it a savings account.
While abortions increased, the new annual report shows PPFA sold more than 1.45 million “emergency” birth control kits, which is a slight decrease from past years. Planned Parenthood has announced that it expects all of its affiliated centers to start doing abortions in the coming months.
Meanwhile, PPFA tested 3,744.949 people for sexually transmitted diseases–a number that has steadily increased over the years.
“The more access Planned Parenthood has to young people, the higher the rate of sexually transmitted disease,” Scott said. “Abstinent teens do not get such sexually transmitted diseases; abstinent teens do not become customers of Planned Parenthood.”

Scott said PPFA’s greatest ally has always been public ignorance of its agenda and activities.
“The Pro-Life Movement can be proud for its ongoing efforts to expose Planned Parenthood’s true agenda,” he said. “The more public ‘black eyes’ Planned Parenthood receives; the harder it will be for the group to get away with lying to and bullying the American people.”
In its last annual report, Planned Parenthood did 329,445 abortions in 2010 while it provided prenatal care to only 31,098 women and referred only 841 women to adoption agencies.
