Planned Parenthood Shows Record-Breaking Abortion Statistics in Annual Report

Planned Parenthood released its annual report for 2018-2019 in which the abortion corporation reported performing a total of 345,672 abortions, a record number for the company. Simultaneously, the number of other services provided by Planned Parenthood continues to fall.

That figure represents roughly 40% of abortions reported by the Guttmacher Institute, showing Planned Parenthood has a clear hold on the abortion industry. The corporation's political stance may also be an image problem for Planned Parenthood, however.

While the number of abortions Planned Parenthood provides may have risen, the number of other services Planned Parenthood provided fell. It provided 2,556,413 "birth control services" in 2018, a number that was 36% higher twelve years ago. Planned Parenthood provided 2,011,637 instances of "cancer screening and prevention services" in 2005, but barely provided a quarter of that in 2018 with a total of 566,186. Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms.

Planned Parenthood is an abortion business first and foremost, and its numbers reflect this. When tax dollars are repeatedly funneled into Planned Parenthood, they will always be primarily subsidizing abortion.
