$Billion$ - Nation's Top Abortion Mill $$

Planned Parenthood reports its annual budget now exceeds a billion dollars, with 46% of its operating funds coming from taxpayers. This "non-profit" organization finished its year with $18.5 million dollars in profit.
"In 2010, abortion procedures made up 91% (329,445) of Planned Parenthood’s services for pregnant women, while prenatal services and adoption referrals account for only 8.6% (31,098) and 0.2% (841), respectively."

Almost half of the group’s annual revenue — 46 percent — comes from taxpayers in the form of grants, contracts and Medicaid payments, according to an analysis by the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List.

Planned Parenthood said it does not receive any federal funding for abortions — only for contraception, prevention and other medical services for low-income women.

“With over a billion in net assets and a business model centered on abortion and government subsidies,” SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement, “it is time for Planned Parenthood to end its reliance on taxpayer dollars.”

From "Planned Parenthood - Abortions make up 91% of services; receives over $487 million in federal funding" by Kerry Picket, Washington Times 12/30/11

"Planned Parenthood reports to have served 'three million people' and performed 329,445 abortions, meaning that 11% of PPFA clients received an abortion."

SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser commented on the PPFA report saying:

"Despite an unprecedented effort by statewide and federal leaders to defund them, a wave of former employees willing to testify against them, and uniform agreement amongst Republican presidential candidates that they should be defunded, Planned Parenthood continues full-steam ahead."

From "Years of Patient Pro-Life Education Pay Off in 2011" by Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D., National Right to Life Director of Education & Research 12/30/11

[Planned Parenthood] is now responsible for more than a quarter of ALL the abortions performed every year in the U.S.

. . . Abortion not only accounts directly for a third or more of PPFA’s total clinic revenues, but it is connected also to many ancillary services sold to pregnant women with the abortion or to women coming to the clinic for abortion that receive other services after they find out they are not pregnant.

. . . while Planned Parenthood tried to argue that none of the (federal) money went towards abortions, National Right to Life pointed out how those funds helped to keep those facilities open and those clinicians employed, freeing up other funds for the promotion and performance of abortion.

Whether abortion is 3% or 33% or an even higher percentage of Planned Parenthood’s business, people are finally beginning to ask why, especially in a time of budget austerity, any taxpayer dollars should be funding an organization for whom systematically killing innocent human beings is a part of their basic business model.
