Fact: 96% of Pregnant Women at Planned Parenthood Get Abortions!!

I’ve been getting a lot of emails over the last week regarding a Planned Parenthood statistic that Students for Life of America has been using in emails and on our website. So, this morning I’m writing about it to address the facts and misinformation about there.

This is a Fact: Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider and 96% of its services for pregnant women are abortions.

For those who may try to rebut this, here is the documentation you need:

Looking at a 2010 fact sheet from their own website, Planned Parenthood provided 324, 008 abortion services, 2,405 adoption referrals, and 9,433 prenatal services in 2008. When calculated, abortion services accounted for 96% of the services provided to pregnant women.

Here is the math for those who still doubt:

2,405 +9,433 = 11,838 (services to pregnant women which are not abortions)

11,838 / 324,008 = .036 = 3.6%

100% – 3.6% = 96.4% (of services provided to pregnant women are abortions)

While this is an astounding number, the actual number of abortions that Planned Parenthood provides may actually be more than that!

The numbers Planned Parenthood provides in its reports are skewed and don’t give a full picture of the services Planned Parenthood is actually providing. Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood Director, recently commented on the way Planned Parenthood reports on its numbers to ensure that the public will not know the truth of their business:

“And while Planned Parenthood says abortions make up just 3 percent of its services, I found they used an sleight of hand, unbundling family planning services so each patient shows anywhere from five to 20 “visits” per appointment (12 packs of birth control would show up as 12 individual visits). It does the opposite for abortion visits, bundling them together so each appointment shows as one visit. This skews the numbers. You have an overwhelming number of “visits” for family planning compared to abortion, even though you may have seen the same number of patients.”

The fact is, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has been caught time and again breaking federal and state laws by protecting racists, rapists, and sex traffickers of minors.

So why would we we trust them to provide accurate numbers of the abortions they provide?

The fact that 96% of Planned Parenthood services to pregnant women are abortions demonstrates that they aren’t about promoting or facilitation “Parenthood” but about ending or stopping “Parenthood”.

From now on, I will call them Preventing Parenthood.

That is a keeper. That is the best argument against abortion since Margaret Sanger.

The 3% who go to Planned Parenthood to receive an abortion are 100% pregnant, that's obviously a fact. Most people who go to Planned Parenthood go to get contraception or STD/STI testing and treatment, a person that's not pregnant can't get an abortion.

I have no doubt that it IS this high, but regardless of the percentages, even ONE abortion is TOO MANY!!!

The 2010 fact sheet provided gives the facts for 2008, NOT 2010, and clearly shows that abortion accounted for 3% of their services.

You are an odious little man!

How incomprehensibly STUPID.

WOMEN WHO ARE NOT PREGNANT DO NOT SEEK ABORTIONS

Did you even READ the fact sheet you're quoting from? Obviously NOT.

Planned Parenthood performed a total of 10,943,609 services in 2008. 324,008 of those services were abortions.

THAT'S 3% - NOT 96%

From YOUR OWN link:

Answer me THIS, Einstein....

If Planned Parenthood, who provides over 3.8 MILLION contraception services each year, is de-funded, what do you suppose will happen to the abortion rate?
• Leslie FAWKES'... 2011/07/04 15:26:34
The percentage of abortions is irrelevant, since Planned Parenthood receives tax funding and provides abortions (even though the abortions aren't tax funded) pro-lifers will always be against facilities that provide the option of receiving an abortion.
• davidl Leslie 2011/07/09 15:32:10
Wrong, new article just came out over 300 taxpayer funded abortions in DC last year alone, all under medicaide. ALL of then elective, meaning no rape/incest. Story from NBC news using data from freedom of information act. Read it and weep you people who claim that taxpayers don't pay for abortions.

• Leslie davidl 2011/07/09 16:33:04
Under the Hyde Amendment Planned Parenthood is prohibited from using federal funds for abortion, medicaide is a completely different entity. And "states can use their own tax dollars to pay for the procedures for women on Medicaid if they wish."
• davidl Leslie 2011/07/09 19:55:19
Read the story above. 300+ abortions paid for out of medicaid funds in 2009/2010 in DC alone. 4 other states pay for them. All ELECTIVE abortions.

Taxpayers still funded all these abortions. They came out of state medicaid funds, not federal funding. Big deal. Like that makes a difference. Taxpayers still funded it.
• Leslie davidl 2011/07/09 20:57:24
I did read it and it was over a two year span, 2009/2011 and the ban of doing this has been re-imposed. I understand that it was Medicaid and it comes from taxpayers but Planned Parenthood isn't the one using their own tax funds to provide abortions, that's the difference. When I say tax funds I'm referring to how Planned Parenthood uses theirs since this poll is about them.
• davidl Leslie 2011/07/09 23:05:33
PP got taxpayer money to provide abortions for women who wanted abortions for personal reasons. Elective abortions happen in 4 other states regularly, which is STILL GOING ON TODAY, because only the DC medicaid could be stopped.

About a dozen more do medicaid abortions, but those are only under court order due to the rape/incest/mothers-life policy.

PP DOES get money from medicaid to do abortions, just state instead of federal level.
• FAWKES'... davidl 2011/09/28 05:59:22
Medicaid will fund an abortion from anywhere, not just Planned Parenthood. PP receives no government funding for abortions.
• davidl FAWKES'... 2011/09/28 11:58:32
Not true. Abortions have been federally funded in DC for years. Read up.

Anyone with respect for human life already has their eyes open. It's those who have no respect for human life that need to have their eyes opened. It those who have had abortions that refuse to open their eyes to what they have done.

I really am shocked. I've always felt that abortion should legal, but only available in the private sector. Some people like to say that because tax payer money doesn't go straight to abortions, that it doesn't fund abortions. If your money goes toward planned parenthood, it ultimately goes towards helping keeping the place going which ultimately does go toward helping to provide ALL of their services. And with these figures I is almost impossible that tax payer money does not go toward abortions.

Margaret sSanger against Abortions? Say what.

Which Margaret Sanger were you referring to?
• zbacku MadAsHEck 2011/07/04 04:30:09
I do believe he was being sarcastic when it comes to Sanger. We all know her goal was to 'decrease the surplus population' of the Black community.
• davidl zbacku 2011/07/09 15:36:01
The abortion rate in DC is nearly 50% for black women last few years. The KKK's got nuthin' on planned parenthood.
• patriot MadAsHEck 2011/07/04 16:48:44
No Margaret Sanger first endorsed abortion as a means of preventing the "undesirables" She is the epitome of eugenics which is evil at it's core and she represents that evil and should therefore be a deterrent. Sorry-I mis-worded that. I knew what I meant : )
• MadAsHEck patriot 2011/07/04 17:29:35
Several years later, Margaret Sanger wrote the following in a letter to Clarence Gamble:

"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population. and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Margaret Sanger's December 19, 1939 letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts.
