Abortion procedures performed at USA Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide increased to 332,757 last year, as the company’s new president, Dr. Leana Wen, called abortion a “human right.” That is an increase of 11,373 abortions over the previous year. Planned Parenthood’s report shows that it received $564.8 million in federal funds in 2017-18 and received $100 million more in private donations in 2018 than it did in 2017; and has net assets of nearly $1.9 billion. Adoption referrals also “decreased by 1,000 last year to around 2,800 “which means that Planned Parenthood clinics performed 118 abortions for every one adoption referral,”
Wen described abortion as being part of standard medical care and a “fundamental human right”. “Through our work, we will continue to assert what we know to be true: Planned Parenthood’s ‘core mission is providing, protecting and expanding access to abortions. Lila Rose, president of national pro-life organization Live Action, dismissed the notion that Planned Parenthood is a health care organization. “Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion chain,” Rose said. “Wen has admitted that Polls show a majority of American taxpayers are opposed to funding abortions yet taxpayers subsidize nearly 40% of Planned Parenthood’s budget.” Rose added.
