Planned Parenthood Sets Record For Abortions

From the Washington Examiner:

Planned Parenthood reports record year for abortions

By Charlie Spiering | January 7, 2013

In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood reveals that it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011 – a record year for the organization.

So much for making abortions ‘safe, legal and rare.’

According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687.

Which is nearly a million babies aborted in just three years. But as Josef Stalin once observed: "A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic." And when it comes to babies, they are even less than a statistic.

Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer funding, according to a Susan B. Anthony List analysis of the report, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. The amount is 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenue.

So they set a record for abortions in the same year they set a record for donations. Perhaps there is a correlation.

“While government subsidies to Planned Parenthood have reached an all time high, so too has the number of lives ended by this profit-driven abortion business,” SBA List’s President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. “Destroying nearly one million children in three years is not health care and does not reflect a concern for vulnerable women and girls.”

Oh, come on. Killing babies is definitely a health issue. Saundra Fluke says so.

Contraceptive services at Planned Parenthood have dropped by 12 percent since 2009, and cancer screening & prevention services have dropped by 29 percent.

Going by what was said during the Democrats’ ‘Republican War On Women’ onslaught, you would have thought these are the only services that Planned Parenthood provides. And yet they are chicken feed compared to their real money maker — abortions.

    I guess the “safe, legal, and rare” concept isn’t working in practice.

    How many contraceptive devices must Catholic universities cover for the abortion rate to go down?

    Personal responsibility would go further than my tax dollars.
    Condoms are available for twenty five cents at plastic kiosks found in millions of public restrooms.

    Do people care so little for themselves?
