WASHINGTON – A newly-released report by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America shows that the organization performed nearly 324,000 abortions in 2014—the latest figures on record, with business dropping by almost a million women from the year before.
The abortion giant releases the report each year to tout its achievements, which include services largely centering around sexual activity.
“We are at a critical moment in our history. Over the past several months, we have been tested in every way imaginable—and have emerged stronger than ever,” Planned Parenthood claimed in this year’s report. “Planned Parenthood’s resilient staff and clinicians are making a huge difference in the field of reproductive and sexual health care and in the cultural landscape at large.”
According to the online document, the organization performed 323,999 abortions nationwide during the 2014-2015 fiscal year, down from 327,653 the year prior. The figures also show that there were 2,024 adoption referrals, equating to 160 abortions for every adoption referral.
The organization received $553 million in taxpayer funding/grants in 2014, up from $528 million the year prior, which equated to 43 percent of its total income. $48 million of Planned Parenthood’s income was used for sex education, and $39 million was used for public policy, or to influence legislation, up from $33 million in 2013. Despite its expenditures, it still garnered a $61 million dollar profit. Read More
