Planned Parenthood's Business Model

Plan A: Provide poor quality, faulty birth control. In its February 2005 issue of Consumer Reports, the non-profit Consumers Union ranked two of Planned Parenthood’s condom lines the lowest out of all the brands that they tested. 

Plan B: Encourage daily hormonal treatment. Planned Parenthood encourages girls to begin a daily regimen of hormonal birth control, and they placate fears about side effects by saying that modern hormonal contraceptives are safer than earlier iterations because they contain smaller amounts of hormones, even though there are still dangerous side effects. Should something go wrong though, they’ll then offer you those same hormones in massive doses (the “morning after pill” or ella, which can cause early abortions), claim it’s perfectly safe, and hope you won’t notice they’re contradicting themselves. 

Plan C: Offer deceptive counseling and biased information. If things didn’t go so well with the condoms and birth control, and pregnancy does occur, then Planned Parenthood offers “options counseling” to help decide a course of action. However, dozens of former employees have blown the whistle on the unscrupulous nature of Planned Parenthood’s “options counseling,” acknowledging that it was used to steer women towards abortion (which they profit from) instead of adoption or parenting (which they don’t get paid for). In 2022-2023, Planned Parenthood committed 228 abortions for every 1 adoption referral. 

Plan $$$: Money, money, money. According to Guttmacher Institute (Planned Parenthood’s research arm), the median cost of an abortion is between $508-$535Planned Parenthood makes more than $2.05 billion in annual revenue. For years, Planned Parenthood officials, staff, and surrogates have repeatedly promoted false information about the services they offer (falsely claiming they provide mammograms, etc) and the uniqueness of their work to convince politicians to give them $699.3 million in taxpayer funding just in the 2022-2023 fiscal year alone. However, everything Planned Parenthood sells and provides (except abortion) can be found within the nationwide network of Federally Qualified Health Centers at universally lower prices.

 

America’s Largest Abortion Vendor By the Numbers

  • 46% of abortions are committed on women younger than 25. 

  • 97.1% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy “services” were abortions in 2022-2023. 

  • 1,076 abortions are committed by Planned Parenthood every day. And that’s keeping in mind that there are no abortion reporting laws in most states. 

  • 392,715 abortions were committed by Planned Parenthood facilities in 2022-2023, their largest annual total ever, more than any other entity. 

  • $2.05 billion is the amount of revenue Planned Parenthood made in 2022-2023. 

  • $699.3 million is the total taxpayer dollars Planned Parenthood received in the 2022-2023 fiscal year. 

Women Killed by Abortion

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), since 1973, there have been 532 reported maternal deaths from abortions, with 460 of those deaths caused by legal abortion. This does not account for the states that do not report to the CDC, including California, which accounts for 16.6% of the nation’s abortions (see source here).
