National Right to Life Releases 6th Annual “State of Abortion” Report
Key highlights from the report include:
-Based on data from the Guttmacher Institute and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and estimating figures for subsequent years (2015-2018), National Right to Life now estimates 60,942,033 abortions have been performed in the United States since 1973.
-Planned Parenthood, which reported over $1.6 billion in revenues in 2017-2018, while posting over $240 million in “excess revenue,” is estimated to have made nearly $160 million performing 332,757 abortions – well over one-third of all abortions in the United States annually.
-State legislatures continue to be successful in enacting pro-life legislation that extends protections to unborn children and helps their mothers. These laws include protections for pain-capable unborn children, laws banning dismemberment abortions of living unborn babies, and efforts to steer state funding away from organizations that perform abortions, such as Planned Parenthood.
