Planned Parenthood by the Numbers
Planned Parenthood’s numbers speak for themselves. Their most recent annual report, released earlier in 2023, shows numbers from their 2020-2021 fiscal year. During that time…
- 374,155 preborn lives were lost to abortions committed by Planned Parenthood.
- Planned Parenthood made $670.4 million in taxpayer funding. That’s more than $1.8 million per day!
- Their number of patients decreased by 30,000 people compared to the previous year.
- 97% of their "services" to pregnant women were abortion.
- They committed 208 abortions for every one adoption referral.
- Prenatal care was down almost 29% (they commited 60 abortions for every one prenatal
- Miscarriage care dropped by 5%
- Transgender services rose over 1500%.
- Their excess revenue over expenses was $204 million.
In November 2021, the Biden Administration repealed the Trump Administration’s Title X regulations that prohibited funds going toward abortion, which means that Planned Parenthood has been eligible for even more funding from the federal government.
Planned Parenthood has committed more than 6.7 million abortions and received almost $10 BILLION in taxpayer dollars since 2000.
Profits Over People
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 2018-2019, Planned Parenthood committed 81 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-$538. Planned Parenthood makes more than $1.6 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 $616.8 million in taxpayer funding just in the 2018-2019 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.
“No matter how Planned Parenthood plays with the percentages, more than half a BILLION in taxpayer resources have been wasted in the last year on a business that profits from making sure people never hold their own child in their arms."
- Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America
“Overall, an examination of previous Planned Parenthood annual reports shows a consistent long-term trend of performing more abortions and providing fewer health services. In fact, in 20 years the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood affiliates has increased by an astounding 75.6 percent. During the same time period, prenatal services offered by Planned Parenthood affiliates have gone down by more than 60 percent.”
