The Planned Parenthood abortion business is closing yet another center — this time in Schenectady, New York.
A press release from Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson (PPMH) says: “After careful evaluation, we have decided to close our Ticonderoga health center, located at 171 Lake George Avenue, on August 27. This decision enables PPMH to focus on the continued upgrading of our other health centers, to ensure we can continue to offer the highest level of patient care. It will also help PPMH meet the growing and diverse needs of women and families in the area by providing more services, extended hours for appointments and walk-in hours at our other facilities.”
“We care deeply about the health of our patients,” states Linda Scharf, PPMH director of communications. “Our priority is to transition patients to one of our other locations, or to a different provider, to ensure they get the prescriptions and health services they need – without interruption.”
Scharf said she thinks Planned Parenthood North Country New York is in the process of seeking approval to open a health center in Essex County.
Although this clinic did not do abortions it is part of the organization that does more abortions than anyone in the United States and all Planned Parenthood clinics make abortion referrals.
The most recent annual 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.

Meanwhile, the annual report reveals PPFA generated nearly $1.2 billion in total income — just short of the $1.22 billion mark that was its record for income that it posted in 2010-2011.
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.
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.
