If you’ve seen the movie Unplanned, you’ve seen abortion and the activities of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion business in Pennsylvania, through an important window given to us by Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood director. To further open that window, here are ten facts about their activities in Pennsylvania:
1) 40 Abortions every day. That’s over 1,000 classrooms gone every year.
2) Half of all abortions in Pennsylvania. If you take the low cost for an abortion ($450 for 1st trimester abortion), that’s over $6.5 million in revenue for Planned Parenthood just on abortions every year.
3) Over $22,000,000 taxpayer dollars since 2012.
4) Nine of the twelve largest abortion facilities. These locations are responsible for around 15,000 abortions every year.
5) $38.8 million in revenue in 2017. That’s up $4.7 million (14%) from the previous year. Also, in 2017, they received over $3.4 million from taxpayers.
6) 23 Locations, 10 performing abortions. Again, these locations are responsible for around 15,000 abortions every year.
7) Zero mentions of adoption referrals in their annual reports. From 2013-2015, the total number of references to ADOPTION in those reports: zero. The total number of references to ABORTION? Thirty-eight.
8) Zero prenatal services. Despite what some Pennsylvania elected officials say, Planned Parenthood offers no prenatal care at any of their locations in Pennsylvania. They previously listed ‘prenatal’ as a service on their website until Pennsylvania Family Institute uncovered that they do not offer such services at any location. They subsequently removed it from their website.
9) Record political investment. Governor Tom Wolf is the only governor to have volunteered as an abortion clinic escort for Planned Parenthood.
10) One-third of their locations voluntarily closed since 2013. Carlisle and Collegeville (2013), Hanover (2014), St Davids (2015), Chambersburg, Gettysburg, Philadelphia (Chestnut Street), Red Lion and Scranton (2016), Bristol, Easton and Stroudsburg (2017). This is good news. This is also evidence of a business model centered on abortion. All but one of these closed locations did not perform abortions on-site. The only one that did (Easton) was their lowest in number of abortions performed.
