Planned Parenthood is out with their latest annual report and the numbers prove, yet again, that they aren’t in the business of women’s health, they’re in the business of abortion.

From 2012-2013, according to the report, Planned Parenthood performed 327,166 abortions, provided prenatal services for 19,506, and made a measly 2,197 adoption referrals. In other words, for every adoption referral, they aborted 149 babies. How exactly are they giving women a choice?

Compared to years prior, however, the numbers “once again show a business in decline,” says Rita Diller, national director of American Life League’s STOPP International project, LifeNews reports.

These are the figures she provided LifeNews:

PPFA reported a substantial drop in its clinic numbers between December 2012 and December 2013. At the end of 2012, it had 750 centers, while it reports “more than 700? at the end of 2013. Its affiliate numbers are down as well, dropping from 73 to 69 over the last year. Affiliates are entities that operate Planned Parenthood centers within a set geographical area.

Planned Parenthood reported a 6.7 percent decrease worldwide in customers for its “sexual and reproductive healthcare and education.” In the U.S., it reported seeing 10,000 fewer unduplicated customers than in 2011.

One of the most glaring numbers was the steep decline in prenatal services-a 31.97 percent decline from the prior year.

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s highly touted cancer screening services dropped 14.22 percent from the 2011 numbers.

Even its abortion business showed a slight decline, reaching the lowest level in four years. PPFA reports that it committed 327,166 abortions for 2012-a 2.0 percent decrease from the year before.

“Planned Parenthood continues to demonstrate by its numbers that it is being rejected by the American public and becoming ever more dependent upon tax-dollar subsidies,” Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League and founder of STOPP International said, according to LifeNews. “It is truly time for all taxpayer funding to be removed from Planned Parenthood.”
