Planned Parenthood celebrates 7.6 million killed by abortion per NewsBusters:
The report came right before the 45th March for Life on Jan. 19, 2018. Held in Washington, D.C., the march condemns abortion and celebrates human life around the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in America. Regardless of the weather, the march regularly attracts tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands from across the country. Still, the broadcast networks have routinely overlooked the event in years past.
Pro-Life Leaders React to Report
In response to the new report, leaders in the pro-life movement released statements (edited for brevity) challenging Planned Parenthood.
Susan B. Anthony List President Marjorie Dannenfelser:
Planned Parenthood’s business model is sinking faster than the Titanic. Despite record income, non-abortion services are in decline, clients are abandoning them in droves, and dozens of facilities have closed. Meanwhile, abortions are holding steady at over 320,000 a year. Yet this report barely scratches the surface of the abortion giant’s troubles as it faces federal investigation for its role in the grotesque harvest and sale of aborted babies’ body parts for profit. Enough is enough. Community health centers vastly outnumber Planned Parenthood facilities nationwide and offer comprehensive primary and preventative care for women and families. Congress must follow through on the promise to redirect tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood without further delay.
Americans United for Life President Catherine Glenn Foster:
Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report demonstrates that the abortion giant’s bottom line is, as always, its ‘bottom line. Critical patient services such as prenatal care are dropping like a rock, while when it comes to abortion, Planned Parenthood continues to push aggressively to corner the market. Planned Parenthood locations are outnumbered by comprehensive, community-based health clinics 20 to 1, and its affiliates provide services to far less than 1% of the American population, with its client numbers dropping every year. This report demonstrates that truly, we can – and should – provide safe and holistic health care without Planned Parenthood.
Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins:
The stealth release of Planned Parenthood’s annual report over the holidays shows that the Abortion Goliath is crying crocodile tears all the way to the bank -- a fact they clearly hoped no one would notice. They claim to be under attack, but their profits from the rising number of abortions and from the hard-working taxpayers are up again. Making money from ending lives is big business at Planned Parenthood. It is vital that Planned Parenthood be defunded and student lives protected from a predatory and profit-driven enterprise. But there is a silver lining in this release, as we can see that more students are responding to the human rights interests of the preborn than to the business interests of Planned Parenthood.
Former Planned Parenthood manager and And Then There Were None CEO Abby Johnson:
Typical under Cecile Richards' leadership of Planned Parenthood, the abortion giant once again cut their prenatal services to almost non-existent levels, cut contraception services, and served 100,000 less people than last year, while still committing over 321,000 abortions. Their annual report demonstrates that Planned Parenthood is not a healthcare organization but a political movement, intent on forcing their pro-abortion views on as many Americans as possible.
Methodology: Annual abortion statistics were taken from pro-life news site Live Action (2010) and spokeswoman Jill Stanek/pro-life group American Life League (1970-2009) in addition to Planned Parenthood annual reports (2011 – 2017).
