Planned Parenthood recently released a report outlining its budget for the previous fiscal year. The nation’s largest abortion business performed even more abortions, provided fewer health services and took even more of your hard-earned tax dollars in the process.
- Planned Parenthood “performed 4,349 more abortions in its latest year reported . . . than it did in the previous year it reported.”
- It provided fewer than 2,900 adoption referrals, “meaning that for every 114 abortions it said it provided in that report, it gave 1 adoption referral.”
- “Cancer screenings have plummeted by 50 percent over the past five years.” In fact, total services performed — not just cancer screenings — also fell 50 percent over the same period.
- At the same time, Planned Parenthood took in $554.6 million of taxpayer money, which accounted for 41% of its revenue, and represented a $12 million increase in taxpayer subsidizes over the past five years.
I know you are as frustrated as I am by these figures. That’s why I joined more than a dozen pro-life organizations this week urging Attorney General Jeff Sessions to act on the “15 criminal and regulatory referrals” issued last year against Planned Parenthood by a special House committee which investigated the pro-abortion lobby’s trafficking in baby body parts.
