Planned Parenthood Annual Report Shows It Killed 354,000 Babies in Abortions, More Than Ever Before

It was another record year for the abortion giant Planned Parenthood. Although Planned Parenthood bills itself as a woman’s health organization, in reality, it is little more than an abortion business.

Its 2019 annual report, released this week, shows it aborted over 354,000 babies, an increase of over 9,000 babies killed in abortions compared to the year before.

We will never quit fighting to stop taxpayer funding of the abortion industry and provide the life-affirming alternatives women and families deserve.”

Chuck Donovan, President of SBA List’s research arm, Charlotte Lozier Institute, added:

“It’s a tragedy that abortions continue to increase at Planned Parenthood even as they decline all across the country.  Women are paying a heavy price for this very wealthy organization to achieve its quotas and goals. Trends like this are exactly why Congress has limited family planning grants to exclude them from going to programs where abortion is a method of family planning.  This is exactly the situation the American people have always strived to avoid.”

While Planned Parenthood kills more babies in abortions, the number of abortions in the United States is on the decline— making it so Planned Parenthood is ...
