4 Big Things We Learned from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report

It’s out.

Planned Parenthood just released its annual report for the FY2015-2016. To sum it up, here are 4 big things we learned from this report.

  1. Planned Parenthood lost 100,000 clients in 1 year. 

    The report documents that Planned Parenthood serviced approximately 2.4 million people in the FY2015-2016, a drop from the 2.5 million people they reportedly serviced in FY2014-2015. From 2011 to 2015, Planned Parenthood’s clientele dropped by more than 600,000. It seems to be that the numbers keep falling.

  2. Abortions are up. 

    Planned Parenthood performed 328,348 abortions in the FY 2015-2016. That’s an increase from the 323,999 abortions the year before. Based on the latest statistics from the Guttmacher Institute (the research arm of Planned Parenthood), that means approximately 35.4% of all U.S. abortions have been done by Planned Parenthood. There’s no doubt they are the nation’s largest abortion provider.

  3. Contraceptive services, cancer screenings, and pap tests & breast exams are down. 

    The number of contraceptive services provided by Planned Parenthood decreased by 136,244 in 2015-2016, contributing to a 30% drop in contraceptive services since 2009, according to reports. In addition, cancer screenings dropped 16,947, factoring into a 69% drop in screenings from 2004, and pap tests and breast exams decreased 19,843. In fact, breast exams have declined 65% since 2004.

  4. Government funding increased. 

    In the FY2015-2016, Planned Parenthood received $554.6 million in government funding. That’s an increase of almost $1 million from the year prior. At the same time, private donations to Planned Parenthood totaled $445.8 million. With all this cash, Planned Parenthood actually came out with $77.5 million in revenue over expenses (and that’s up from $58.8 million reported last year).

In July of 2015, David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress released undercover footage of Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted baby body parts. Now, as seen in their annual report, Planned Parenthood is making a desperate effort to save face amidst their decreasing favorability, claiming they are “an irreplaceable component of our country’s healthcare system” and “stronger, smarter, and fiercer.”

Frankly, all we see are increasing abortions, decreasing “other services,” dropping clientele, and over half a billion in government funding is still being sent their way.

Is Planned Parenthood worth it when the country has 13,540 alternative, comprehensive healthcare clinics that provide the same services – just not abortion?

We don’t think so.
