In America, Planned Parenthood is the name most associated with the abortion deaths of millions of unborn babies. In England and many other parts of the world, it’s Marie Stopes International.

Both abortion chains have been exposed for scandal after scandal. Both provide and advocate for abortion on demand. Both receive huge sums of taxpayer dollars each year. Both claim to be nonprofit/charity organizations.

And both recently reported record incomes from their deadly trade.

Marie Stopes’ new financial statement reports a record £296 million (about $382 million) income in 2017, according to Third Sector. The financial statement can be found here.

Even so, the abortion chain claims to have suffered from President Donald Trump’s Mexico City policy, which prohibits U.S. international aid money from funding groups that provide or promote abortions overseas.

The British-based abortion chain predicted a £23 million shortfall per year as a result of the policy. It said the U.S. tax dollars made up 17 percent of its donor income.

Here’s more from the report:

According to its accounts for the year to 31 December 2017, which were published on Companies House last week, the charity, which provides contraception and abortion services, had an income of £296.1m, compared with incomes of £290m and £266.3m in 2016 and 2015 respectively.

The charity also spent £300.9m in 2017, the accounts show, an increase of £21.1m on 2016.

Increases in income and spending from Marie Stopes’ charitable activities were the main reason for the overall rises shown in the latest accounts.

The charity’s grant income fell slightly from £174.3m to £170m in 2017, but the income from its services increased from £85.7m to £93.9m over the same period.

Its exact abortion numbers are not clear. In 2017, it reported providing 4.1 million abortions and post-abortion services, a 12-percent increase from 2016.

Its highest paid employee makes about £300,000 ($387,000 a year), down from about £400,000 in 2016.

Marie Stopes, which pushes abortions in countries across the world, has a sordid reputation, similar to that of Planned Parenthood in America.

A British Care Quality Commission report found the abortion chain botched nearly 400 abortions in a two-month period in 2017. It also found evidence that Marie Stopes was pressuring women to have abortions by incentivizing staff with bonuses.

In 2016, health inspectors found such horrible conditions inside British Marie Stopes facilities that the government temporarily shut down some of the abortion chain’s operations.

Marie Stopes also has been accused of doing hundreds of illegal, unsafe abortions in Africa. And in 2017, parents and community leaders in Kitui, Kenya were outraged after learning that Marie Stopes workers allegedly came into their children’s school and implanted long-lasting contraceptive devices into girls as young as 14 without their parents’ knowledge or consent.
