DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - Planned Parenthood (PP) is killing more babies than ever.
The abortion giant murdered 13,000 more babies last year than it did the previous year, according to its own annual report for 2018–2019. The report listed 345,672 "abortion procedures" committed by PP last year. This compares to 332,757 abortions that it reported for the previous year.
Its rate increase is even more remarkable considering the number of surgical abortions in America has declined. Guttmacher Institute, founded in 1968 as a branch of PP, reported in October that surgical abortions dropped in the United States by 7% from 2014–2017. In spite of this, the number of abortion procedures performed by PP grew by nearly 4% over 2017 figures.
And this doesn't even account for the number of so-called chemical abortions. Chuck Donovan, president of the pro-life organization Charlotte Lozier Institute, spoke to this issue while commenting on Guttmacher's report:
The rise in so-called medication abortion should concern us all as it reveals the abortion industry's increasingly successful effort to cut the overhead costs of surgical abortion while still profiting off the destruction of unborn children and wounding of his or her mother, who is given dangerous abortion drugs and then sent off to pass the body of her aborted child in isolation. The industry's migration to chemical self-abortion is deeply disturbing as it carries with it the possibility of increasing the overall abortion rate over time and also carries with it a higher rate of injury, about which women are often under-informed or deceived.
The publicly funded abortion provider is cornering the market on U.S. abortions with money from taxpayers. According to statistics from the pro-life group National Right to Life (NRL), PP's so-called market share of abortions is now at 40%.
Likewise, NRL reported that PP receives "$1.7 million every day from U.S. taxpayers."
Revenue for the abortion provider "exceeded $16 billion" in 2018, according to NRL.
The abortion provider tries to downplay its role in providing abortions by saying that it provides many other services as well including STD tests, pregnancy tests and passing out contraceptives.
But even liberal media like The Washington Post says these claims by PP are misleading. The newspaper explained this deception in a 2018 article:
The 3% figure that Planned Parenthood uses is misleading, comparing abortion services to every other service that it provides. The organization treats each service — pregnancy test, STD test, abortion, birth control — equally. Yet there are obvious differences between a surgical (or even medical) abortion, and offering a urine (or even blood) pregnancy test. These services are not all comparable in how much they cost or how extensive the service or procedure is.
The abortion conglomerate was also caught in 2015 profiting from the sale of body parts of aborted babies.
