Planned Parenthood Releases Numbers of Abortions

Most entities judge success by profits or people served. In the case of Planned Parenthood, executives tend to judge their success at least in part on the count of dead babies. And unfortunately, 2016 was a good year for the organization.

According to Planned Parenthood’s 2015-2016 annual report, released this week, the abortion provider terminated 328,348 fetuses between July of 2015 and June of 2016.

That’s up from 323,999 during the same period in 2014-2015, in spite of the fact that the provider actually served fewer people (2.4 million versus 2.5 million) over that period. Operating revenue was also up to $1.354 billion from $1.296 billion over that same period.

Perhaps most disturbing was the fact that the group only gave out 2,889 adoption referrals — which means it was running an abortion-to-referral average of roughly 114-to-1.

But Planned Parenthood’s report mostly functioned as a glossy paean to itself for having the gumption to terminate the lives of unborn children no matter what any “extremists” thought.

“We have been here for 100 years, and we’ve been fighting for reproductive health care and rights since day one,” a particularly self-congratulatory passage read. “We’re going to be here for another 100 years — and then some — and though the path forward isn’t an easy one, ours never has been. Planned Parenthood has weathered some intense storms in our history, and we’ve come out of each one stronger, smarter, and fiercer than ever before.”
