The results are in: Planned Parenthood remains America’s biggest abortion provider. And it’child observation report essays not even close.
Amid the gloom, there is one glimmer of positive news. Last year, the group provided fewer abortions than it had the year before, though the number is still staggering: 321,384 abortion procedures in one year alone. Signs at a Planned Parenthood rally in Austin, Texas, April 2017. It earns most of its money from abortions, it’s flush with cash, and it provides very few actual health-care services.
Planned Parenthood remains America’s biggest abortion provider. 16, Planned Parenthood reported 328,348 abortions. A decrease in abortions, of course, isn’t Planned Parenthood’s victory to celebrate — not that the group is trying to take credit for the drop, or celebrating it at all. And yet Planned Parenthood continues to portray itself as a solicitous women’s health organization that just so happens to occasionally perform an abortion or two, when it’s absolutely necessary. This report is no exception, and the astonishing figure of 321,384 is treated as nothing more than a footnote. Aided by Hollywood, complicit media, and Democratic politicians and activists, Planned Parenthood cloaks the truth beneath empty rhetoric about resisting the hostile Trump administration.

But key facts in this report unveil the brutal reality: Planned Parenthood is a corporation that exists primarily to profit from abortion. Here are the top myths Planned Parenthood peddles that are debunked by information from its own annual report. Abortion is just 3 percent of Planned Parenthood’s business. A woman walks into a Planned Parenthood clinic.
She takes a pregnancy test, meets with a counselor, and chooses to have an abortion procedure. While she’s there, she also receives an STI test and a breast exam and is handed birth control on her way out the door. 16 percent of that woman’s visit. Planned Parenthood inflates its numbers to make abortion look like a vanishingly small part of what it does. The actual numbers in the report tell a drastically different story.
And its prenatal services have dropped steadily every year since 2009, from over 40,000 that year to just under 8,000 last year. What’s more, Planned Parenthood performs about one-third of annual U. As the most expensive procedure provided, abortion underwrites a huge portion of the group’s bottom line. Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards, has inadvertently underscored the group’s repeated attempts to downplay its commitment to abortion. Richards met with Ivanka Trump last year to discuss the group’s future, and Trump suggested that Planned Parenthood split into two financially distinct groups, one of which offered no abortion, allowing it to receive government money without compromising taxpayers’ consciences. Trump failed to understand how central abortion is to Planned Parenthood’s mission.
Millions of women wouldn’t have health care if Planned Parenthood didn’t exist. The report indicates that Planned Parenthood saw 2. 4 million clients in the last fiscal year. But, as has been shown by the group’s own figures, it doesn’t provide those clients with very many actual health-care services.
According to the report, the only significant services offered, besides abortion, are STI and HIV tests, contraception, and pregnancy tests. The report also hints, but doesn’t outright acknowledge, that Planned Parenthood closed dozens of clinics over the last year. Planned Parenthood closed 32 clinics last year, leaving the group with just 597 facilities. This means that several states have only a handful of Planned Parenthood centers, and some have as few as one or two.
And yet we are supposed to believe that these paltry clinics provide essential care to women who would otherwise have nowhere to go. These centers outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities 20 to one. It is beyond absurd to suggest that American women would have nowhere to turn for health care if not to Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood both needs and deserves government funding. A plurality of Planned Parenthood’s revenue last year came from government reimbursements and grants, totaling more than half a billion dollars. The group is, understandably, fixated on retaining and expanding that funding — surely in large part for the PR cover it provides.
