Governor Tom Wolf, a former Planned Parenthood escort, was outside of Philadelphia today in Ambler hosting a rally to support his pro-abortion agenda. It’s ironic that he picked Ambler because Planned Parenthood – the state’s largest abortion business – voluntarily closed their Ambler facility back on June 30, 2011.
Here are five numbers to keep in mind about Planned Parenthood:
16 – The number of Planned Parenthood facilities that have closed in Pennsylvania since 2010.
- 2010: Hazleton
- 2011: Ambler, Doylestown, State College
- 2013: Carlisle, Collegeville
- 2014: Hanover
- 2015: St Davids
- 2016: Chambersburg, Gettysburg, Philadelphia – Chestnut Street, Red Lion, Scranton
- 2017: Bristol, Easton, Stroudsburg
All but one not bringing in direct revenue from abortion services. The lone abortion on-site clinic to close (Easton) performed the lowest amount of abortions out of any of their facilities.
$240 million – Planned Parenthood’s total revenue in Pennsylvania since 2011.
Their latest reporting year is their highest revenue reports in that span at over $38 million. in 2017.
$22,609,811 – The amount of taxdollars sent to Planned Parenthood in PA since 2011.
Taxpayers have been forced to send over $22 million in taxdollars to an organization the performs half of the state’s abortions every year.
$4.4 million – Low estimate Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-funded operation spent lobbying against pro-life policies since 2011.
This is not their PAC. This is not Planned Parenthood Advocates PA, their c4 political operation. This is their c3 organization that is directly receiving taxdollars. They report using the over $4.4 million to “shape public policy at the local, state and federal levels by providing up-to-date information about legislation, meeting with public officials about reproductive health issues, mobilizing supporters to take action to protect reproductive rights, hosting community events and advocacy training, working with coalition partners, and communicating our message in the media.” This means lobbying against any sensible legislation that remotely deals with abortion, like stopping the Down Syndrome Protection Act which would simply ban abortions that are based solely on a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
$2.5 million – Record-amount of spending by the political arm of Planned Parenthood in any state for a mid-term election (2018).
The political arm of Planned Parenthood spent record amounts in the 2018 midterm to cover areas like door-to-door canvassing.
Planned Parenthood was also one of the top campaign donors to the 2016 campaign of Attorney General Josh Shapiro, who also attended the Ambler rally.
