Business is Booming at Planned Parenthood
The abortion industry lobby is having a splendid run in the Obama era. In its annual business report, Planned Parenthood reports that receipts are up -- it performed 333,964 abortions in 2011. That's a record, and up from 329,445 in 2010. All tolled, Planned Parenthood has performed just shy of 1,000,000 abortions in the Obama era.
It also took in $542 million in taxpayer funding. Planned Parenthood may be doing big business, but taxpayers are ultimately paying to keep it going.
During this same period, contraceptive services have decreased 12% since 2009, and cancer screening and prevention has dropped 29%. Planned Parenthood is evidently expanding the service that remains the core and most profitable part of its business.
Planned Parenthood was founded by racist eugenicist Margaret Sanger.
