The nation’s largest abortion provider says it performed 332,757 abortions in the past year — 11,373 more than the 321,384 the group performed in the year of 2016-2017. The number of abortions performed contrasts sharply with the number of adoption referrals — 2,831.

Planned Parenthood also appears to be going against the tide of the nation when it comes to abortions. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released a report in November that revealed the number of abortions in the United States has reached its lowest level since the Supreme Court’s decision in Roe v. Wade in 1973. However, the number of abortions Planned Parenthood performs has increased.
n contrast to the 332,757 abortions performed last year, Planned Parenthood states it performed only 216,722 “well-woman exams,” significantly fewer for an organization that claims to be primarily a woman’s healthcare provider.
The organization says it performed 2,620,867 “contraception” services and 4,712,985 test and treatment services for sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
Interestingly, despite the adoption in many U.S. public schools of comprehensive sex education programs — many of which are taught or supervised by Planned Parenthood — CDC revealed data in August showing the number of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) has skyrocketed for the fourth consecutive year.
Planned Parenthood continues to claim in its annual report that abortion represents only three percent of its services, though that statistic has been debunked — even by left-leaning media — because that statistic is derived from equating abortion as a service with handing out condoms and pregnancy tests. . . .
On the revenue side, last year Planned Parenthood took in an unprecedented $1.67 billion, breaking its record from the previous year of $1.46 billion.
The abortion vendor collected $563.8 million from taxpayers through Medicaid reimbursements and government family planning grants. This amount is $20 million more than the $543.7 million the organization raked in from taxpayers in 2016-2017.
Planned Parenthood has also experienced a banner year when it comes to private donations. The group says, last year, it received $630.8 million from “private contributions and bequests,” a figure that is $98 million more than the $532.7 million it received from private sources in the previous year. . . .
Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood manager and founder of And Then There Were None — a ministry that helps abortion workers leave the industry — said in a statement Planned Parenthood’s latest report “shows they have doubled down on their money maker – abortion – increasing the number by 11,000 over the previous year, while simultaneously decreasing the number of cancer screenings, contraception handouts, and prenatal care and well-women exams.”
“When I worked at Planned Parenthood managing a clinic in Texas, abortion was always encouraged because it made the most money,” Johnson added. “Nothing has changed.” (Excerpt from Breitbart.)
