Planned Parenthood Federation of America Builds Wealth

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) released its 2012 report and it’s clear that PPFA continues to build its financial empire, reporting more than $1.3 billion in net assets. Of that amount, $540.6 million was received in taxpayer funding — a stunning $1.5 million per day which comes from government grants, contracts and Medicaid reimbursements.

In 2012, PPFA performed 327,166 abortions nationwide, a 2% drop from 2011. The 2012 numbers remain a dramatic increase of 100,000 more abortions than the 227,385 performed in 2002.

Abortions made up 93.8% of PPFA’s pregnancy services. Said another way, 93.8% of pregnant women who come to PPFA facilities have abortions. Prenatal care and adoption account for only 5.6% of services for pregnant women. Prenatal care services have dropped 52% at PPFA since 2009.

Here’s one of the most shocking numbers. PPFA almost destroyed the Susan G. Komen breast cancer organization a few years ago over Komen’s decision, and then its reversal, of giving grants to PPFA. The 2012 numbers reveal that cancer screenings provided by PPFA have dropped 39% since 2009.

PPFA continues to be the nation’s abortion giant.
