Five Facts You Might Not Know About Planned Parenthood (That Will Turn Your Stomach)

Almost as fiercely as pro-lifers love preborn babies and their families, we have a serious disdain for Planned Parenthood, the organization which rolls sinister, slimy, and sneaky all into one. Responsible for most abortions in the United States, the abortion giant remains a considerable foe to the right to life, and Students for Life of America (SFLA) has made it part of our mission to staunchly oppose them. Want to understand why? Here are five facts about Planned Parenthood that you may not know and certainly won’t like:  

1. Planned Parenthood Kills a Baby Every Two Minutes

According to Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report, the organization committed 374,155 abortions in the 2021 fiscal year, which means 1,025 abortions happen every day. If we do the math, that means their dollars-for-death business model killed one baby every two minutes.  

That’s especially sad when you consider that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported a total of 3,664,292 births within the same year, which means about 10,000 births occurred per day. That number would have increased by more than 10% if Planned Parenthood ceased to exist.  

2. Their Business Model is Nearly 98% Death

During the same time, Planned Parenthood provided “other services” for women, but abortion made up 97.9% of their time. Pro-Life Generation, keep that statistic in mind when abortion supporters want to claim that we should continue to fund Planned Parenthood due to their other services which are barely happening and can be sought at other locations which do not spend nearly 100% of their time killing babies.  

3. Taxpayers Are Forced to Give The Abortion Giant Billions

Between 2019-2021, Planned Parenthood received nearly two billion in federal funding (approximately $1.78 billion) according to a recent congressional probe by the U.S. Government Accountability Office. This comes out to around $600 million yearly — and let’s not forget where such funding comes from. The government doesn’t make any of their own money; this is straight from taxpayers’ pockets.

4. Planned Parenthood Used COVID to Essentially Steal From Small Businesses

When the pandemic struck and the Paycheck Protection Program was launched for independent, small businesses, Planned Parenthood wrongly took out loans (despite being told clearly not to) and have since been forgiven $90.4 million of their ill-gotten gains. Yes, forgiven loans do equal free money.

5. They Shell Out Chemical Abortion Pills Internationally

As Planned Parenthood isn’t content with just killing American citizens, the International Planned Parenthood Federation reported that it enabled more than 14,000 Chemical Abortions in 2022. This form of abortion, often much riskier for women than surgical abortion, is clearly the abortion industry’s push for the future as this was three times more compared to the number in 2021.
