Planned Parenthood: Abortion Virtually its Only Service
As Jivin J reported earlier, while Planned Parenthood is long overdue publishing its 2008-09 annual report, it has released its 2008 stats for pregnancy related services, as 1st spotted and reported yesterday by American Life League.
Abortions: 324,008 (up 6.1% from 305,310 in 2007)
Prenatal care: 9,433 (down 14% from 10,914 in 2007)
Adoption: 2,405 (down 51% from 4,912 in 2007)
Let’s show these stats by graph (received from DC source – click to enlarge):
As ALL reported, “Thus PP now commits 134 abortions for every adoption referral.”
Other interesting finds from PP’s 2008 fact sheet, per ALL:
Despite the increase in abortion, PP showed a decline in a number of other areas, including a drop of 4% (almost 100,000 visits) in its primary customer base – female birth control customers.
While PP often emphasizes that it is the only provider of health care in many areas of the nation, primary-care patients accounted for only .1% of its business in 2008.
Finally, back to the big picture:
The total number of abortions committed by PP since it first began in NY state in 1970 is now 4,987,817….
PP is the nation’s largest single abortionist – committing 26.8% of the estimated 1.21 million abortions in the US in 2008. PP also runs the nation’s largest abortion chain, with over 300 medical and surgical abortion facilities across the country.
