Planned Parenthood report card

*But were afraid to ask

Planned Parenthood just released their 2023 annual report. The average pro-lifer doesn’t have time to wade through page after page of charts and numbers. Don’t worry, we did it for you and present it in an easy-to-understand Q & A format. Here is the Planned Parenthood report card for 2023:

How many abortions did Planned Parenthood perform in 2023?

Actually, the data in their new report refers to 2021 and 2022, in which they performed 392,715 abortions, a record. That’s about 40% of all abortions performed in the U.S.

So, is their abortion business increasing?

Yes. It increased by more than 18,000 abortions from the year before, an increase of some 20% over the past ten reports, according the pro-life Charlotte Lozier Institute.

Has the surge in their abortion business allowed them to expand the scope of authentic reproductive health screenings?

No. Preventative-care visits plummeted by 31 percent; pap tests dropped 13.5 percent; and cancer screenings ticked down 1.4 percent.

So does the Planned Parenthood report card indicate how big a part abortion plays in their business?

According to Charlotte Lozier, “abortions made up 97.1% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy resolution services,” quite a contradiction to their assertion that abortion accounts for just 3% of their services.

Does Planned Parenthood provide adoption referrals?

Rarely. They refer one baby for adoption for every 228 performed abortions.

What is the longterm trend line for Planned Parenthood?

The Planned Parenthood report card shows total services are down 17%; cancer and preventative services dropped by 71%; breast exams dropped by 72%; pap tests dropped 74%; prenatal services are down 80% from their peak in 2009; and contraceptive services are down 39%. The trend line reveals an organization focusing on their abortion business at the same time they’re allowing their pre-natal services to whither away.

Does this mean they’re receiving less money from the federal government?

No, just the opposite. Taxpayers funded Planned Parenthood to the tune of $699.3 million, 34% of their entire overall revenue. This represents an increase of 43% since 2010 and a 4.2% increase over the previous year. At a time when the United State’s fertility rate is below replacement level, American taxpayers are increasingly compelled to fund Planned Parenthood’s growing abortion machine. As the chart below from Charlotte Lozier shows, Planned Parenthood’s government funding and abortion business continues to grow at the same time their number of patients continues to fall.

So is Planned Parenthood really a health-care provider?

No. The Planned Parenthood report card reveals abortion is its mission, not healthcare. And abortion has nothing to do with health.
