More reason to question Planned Parenthood’s “3% abortion services” claim

Planned Parenthood claims that abortion is only 3% of all their services but a new analysis of some reports shows that Planned Parenthood knows this is not true. As Live Action News has previously reported stats collected from Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report published in 2015 shows that abortion is more likely 22.6% of the abortion businesses total revenue source. The 3% claim is ludicrous if you break it down in terms of their “services” as well. In fact, if other organizations did this type of fuzzy math to deceive tax payers they would be rightly called out by the media, but where Planned Parenthood is concerned the media continuously publishes misleading claims by the multi-million dollar tax funded business rightly dubbed an abortion chain.

For example, Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest’s 2012 annual report shows their “abortion services” totaled 8% that year, which is much higher than the 3% claim they generally give. The next year in 2013 , they claimed that abortion services were again 8% of their overall services. However, this Planned Parenthood failed to list how many actual abortions that translates to making it impossible to confirm their claim at all.

A look at Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties (PPOSBC) exposed by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) for their role in the transaction of aborted baby body parts, reveals abortion services are well over the 3% at this location as well. However, since this abortion center chain doesn’t list their abortion totals their numbers (although higher than 3%) cannot be documented here either.

In their 2014-2015 annual report PPOSBC states “abortions services” amount to 5.9% of their overall services, nearly double PP’s 3% national claim. In fact the previous year, PPOSBC claimed that their abortion services were 6.3% and the year prior to that the number was 6.1%, a trend that existed despite receiving millions in Government grants and contracts. Although this abortion center does not publish their total abortion numbers Planned Parenthood centers that do reveal high abortion revenues which exceed 3%.
