It's become the worst time of the year: the moment Planned Parenthood releases its annual report. This year, the newly released documents reveal that the 'women's health' organization decreased most of its services in the past year. Cancer prevention, prenatal care and adoption referrals, for instance, were slashed by 17 percent, 4 percent, and 14 percent, respectively. But, one of its most lucrative procedures, abortion, is still going strong.
The pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List provided a helpful fact sheet outlining the most significant points of the latest report. Here are just a few unfortunate statistics that emphasize Planned Parenthood's dangerous priorities:
In 2013, Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions, a slight increase from 2012 (327,166).
Over the past three reported years (2011-2013), Planned Parenthood has performed nearly one million abortions(988,783).
In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services, while prenatal care and adoption referrals accounted for only 5% (18,684) and 0.5% (1,880),respectively.
For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 174 abortions.
While abortions rose slightly, adoption referrals by Planned Parenthood dropped 14% in one year, and prenatal care services dropped 4%.
Planned Parenthood’s cancer prevention services are down 17% over one year, and contraceptive services dropped by 4%.
As you can see, those 'women's health' services Planned Parenthood brags about are disappearing more and more every year, as it becomes clear the business is focused on living up to its Big Abortion title. There's no denying it's a lucrative service; Fifty-one percent of its annual clinic revenue comes from abortion.
The organization tries to claim that only 3 percent of its services include abortion. Yet, LifeNews explains why this is a gross miscalculation used to mislead others. For one, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the country, performing 40 percent of all abortions.
In case you need anymore reasons to dislike this organization, read these 10 truths.
Each year their reports come out, we are again reminded of Planned Parenthood's true agenda. Not even they can sugarcoat these very tragic numbers.
