Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion operation in America. In the last reported year, Planned Parenthood reported doing 264,943 abortions. In the same year, they saw only 12,548 prenatal clients.1 That means they did 21 abortions for every 1 prenatal visit. According to their own numbers Planned Parenthood performed 180 abortions for every 1 adoption referral in 2004.2 While the national abortion numbers continue to decline, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers have steadily increased over the last 6 years. Looking at the facts, Planned Parenthood is about abortion, not choice.
Planned Parenthood is an abortion advocacy group. They actively oppose any law that restricts abortion, including parental consent laws and parental notification laws. Planned Parenthood led the fight to keep the most gruesome procedure, partial-birth abortion legal.
