More than 320k babies aborted by Planned Parenthood in 2017
The Christian Institute
Abortion giant Planned Parenthood carried out more than 320,000 abortions in the US last year, according to its recent annual report.
The report shows that the group aborted 321,384 babies in its 2016-2017 fiscal year.
Some of the contraceptive devices Planned Parenthood provide also act as abortifacients, meaning the true figure will be even higher.
The figure is slightly lower than the previous year, for which 328,348 abortions were recorded.
Between 2016 and 2017, Planned Parenthood received $543.7 million in American taxpayers’ money. Its gross annual revenue is $1.46 billion.
Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood Director who is now a pro-life activist, said: “Their annual report demonstrates that Planned Parenthood is not a healthcare organization but a political movement, intent on forcing their pro-abortion views on as many Americans as possible”.
An investigation by the pro-life group Live Action last year showed that Planned Parenthood regularly turn away women seeking prenatal care.
Live Action investigators visited 68 Planned Parenthood clinics and of this number, only three were able to provide women with an ultrasound for purposes other than abortion.
Johnson said it was “typical” of the abortion giant to “cut their prenatal services to almost non-existent levels” and serve “100,000 less people than last year, while still committing over 321,000 abortions”.
However, Kristan Hawkins, President of Students for Life of America, offered some positive news.
She has witnessed a groundswell in pro-life activism on American university campuses over the last year, and an ebb in pro-abortion activism.
Hawkins states that nearly 120 pro-life groups were started on campuses last year, compared to 50 Planned Parenthood groups.
In addition, Students for Life trained 11,000 activists from across the US, compared to 750 by Planned Parenthood.
