Planned Parenthood Report Shows It Did 7.6 Million Abortions Since Roe v. Wade
As the pro-life movement prepares for the 45th annual March for Life, here's a number the liberal media are unlikely to report: Planned Parenthood has committed 7.6 million abortions since Roe vs. Wade.
Over the holiday weekend, America's largest abortion provider released its 2016 2017 annual report. According to that report and former ones (plus numbers supplied by pro-life groups), Planned Parenthood has been responsible for the death of more than 7.6 million babies, from 1973 through 2017.
That means a population somewhere between the sizes of New York City and Los Angeles is missing.
The timing of Planned Parenthood's new report came as a surprise, considering that the 2015 2016 report was released last May. That may be because the abortion giant was under pressure: while the national abortion rate was decreasing, Planned Parenthood's abortion rate was increasing. This latest report changed that.
From 2016 to 2017, Planned Parenthood performed 321,384 abortions. That's 6,964 fewer abortions than the year before. And Planned Parenthood can?t credit contraception for that slight decline because it also provided fewer contraception services (from 2,808,815 to 2,701,866).
And while adoption referrals increased since last year's report (from 2,889 to 3,889), prenatal services decreased (from 9,419 to 7,762). Still, that means that for every prenatal service given, Planned Parenthood performed 41 abortions, and for every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood committed close to 83 abortions.
