(Un)planned Parenthood

by Family Research Council

February 13, 2009

Earlier this week we took a look at Planned Parenthood’s burgeoning abortion industry. While the nation’s overall induced abortion count is declining, Planned Parenthood’s is soaring. The chart below adds two more trend lines, the number of “emergency contraceptive” kits (a.k.a. Plan B, morning after pills) distributed and the number of adoption referrals made each year by all Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide. Plan B distribution is brisk, even soaring, and if abortions are being averted by this lucrative tactic, it has yet to show up in the agency’s own clinical data.

As you can see regarding the adoption referrals, you can hardly see the adoption referrals. The bright yellow line that crawls along the x axis of the graph is Planned Parenthood’s minuscule involvement in this life-giving option. Roughly 120 babies die in their perimeter for every one that gets a chance at adoption placement. Families are unplanned, not formed, through this agency.

Planned Parenthood: deliverer of the undelivered

Planned Parenthood, the nation’s premier supplier of birth control, is also the nation’s top deliverer of the undelivered - human lives that are ended by induced abortion. The chart below shows the regular, decades-long increase in abortions carried out in the U.S. by the agency that styles itself as focused on reducing the “need” for abortion.

Planned Parenthood has doubled its abortion count (and the figures exclude early abortions carried out through abortifacient means in the first minutes or days after conception) in the last 13 years alone. Federal (taxpayer) money for the group has also grown during this period. Money to Planned Parenthood is apparently a “stimulus” affording the group more access to women who are abortion vulnerable.

UPDATE: Todd, a commenter below, asks a good question: what is the source of these figures? Answer: they are published yearly in Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports.
