A few sickening statistics from the report:

  • Planned Parenthood reported receiving $487 million in taxpayer funding. That means taxpayer funding makes up nearly half (46%) of Planned Parenthood’s revenue.
  • For the first time ever, Planned Parenthood has topped one billion ($1,009,600,000) in total net assets.

What are taxpayers getting for their buck?

  • 329,445 abortions, making up 91% of Planned Parenthood’s services to pregnant women. Of the three million people that walked through the doors of a Planned Parenthood clinic, one out of 12 received an abortion.
  • 31,098 prenatal services for women, making up just 8.6% of overall services to pregnant woman.
  • 841 adoption referrals, a mere 0.2% of services to pregnant women. (This number continues to drop. In 2008, PP reported 2,405 adoption referrals).
