Half of Planned Parenthood’s non-government services revenue comes from abortion

An analysis by Live Action News has found that abortion revenue accounts for over half of Planned Parenthood’s non-government health services revenue and over 12 percent of Planned Parenthood’s total revenue. The figures confirm further that abortion is a much higher percentage of Planned Parenthood’s overall revenue than the public is led to believe.

Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation led by Cecile Richards, hired for her experience in political organizing, not health care. Since Richards came to office, Planned Parenthood’s market share of abortion has increased to the point that they now garner nearly 35 percent of the US abortion market. Despite the fact that Planned Parenthood claims abortion is just three percent of the services they offer, (recently disproved by Live Action in the video below) it is clear that revenue from abortions has proven to be lucrative for Planned Parenthood.

In 2009, an analysis by Live Action News found that abortion accounted for 22.6 percent of Planned Parenthood’s clinic revenue. Today, that percentage is much larger.

To calculate this number Live Action News looked at revenue, abortion totals, and median abortion costs.

Planned Parenthood has a few revenue sources which they detail in their 2015-2016 annual report.

PPFA Revenue 2015-.22016 annual report

Note that there are two sources of revenue for “health services” which include:

  • Government Health Services Reimbursements & Grants (taxpayer dollars) – $554.6 million
  • Non-Government Health Services Revenue – $306.8 million

COST OF ABORTIONS: 

In 2015, Planned Parenthood reported that they performed 328,348 abortions.

Planned Parenthood’s former “special affiliate” and research arm, The Guttmacher Institute gives us an average of first-trimester abortion costs as follows:

  • In 2011–2012, the average amount paid for an abortion in a non-hospital setting at 10 weeks gestation and with local anesthesia was $480. The average paid for an early medication abortion up to 9 weeks gestation was $504.

And according to a Planned Parenthood report from 2014, non-hospital facilities charged an average of $1,500 for abortion at 20 weeks.

If we break the 328,348 abortion numbers down using percentages from Guttmacher’s most recent abortion data which states that 31 percent (101,788) of reported abortions nationwide were medication abortions and 1.3 percent  (4,269) were greater than 21 weeks, that would leave 222,291 as first-trimester surgical abortions.

By taking the average cost of abortion for each category – and without accounting for inflation- we estimate the following:

  • Medication abortions: 101,788 x $504 = $51,301,152
  • Surgical abortions: 222,291 x $480 = $106,699,680
  • Abortions after 21 weeks: 4,269 X $1500 = $6,403,500

__________________________

  • Total estimated abortion revenue is $164,404,332

That is a lot of money and may be the impetus for why former Planned Parenthood staffers claim PP enforces abortion quotas:

 

If we divide Planned Parenthood’s estimated abortion revenue ($164,404,332) by their total non-government health center revenue of $306,800,000, we find that abortion makes up nearly 54 percent (53.58%) of Planned Parenthood’s non-government health services revenue.

However, even if we include the $554.6 million in government dollars, abortion revenue can be estimated at 19 percent of all Planned Parenthood’s health services revenue.

Then, if we include all revenue sources, abortion revenue would exceed an estimated 12 percent.

Planned Parenthood falsely claims that tax dollars do not fund abortions (even though money is fungible) and the half a billion in forced taxpayer dollars they receive annually are simply reimbursements from Medicaid, etc. Today, despite their claims, legitimate health services, as well as patients, are declining while abortions are on the increase.

But, the real impact of Planned Parenthood’s abortion revenue lies inside the organization’s own annual reports which reveal that, almost every year since 2000, Planned Parenthood’s revenue has exceeded their expenses — not just by a few dollars, but by tens of millions of dollars (yearly surpluses ranging from $12.2 million in 2001 to a high of $155.5 million in 2010).  By 2015, according to Planned Parenthood’s own report. the abortion corporation reported an excess of revenue over expenses in the amount of $77.5 million, an increase of nearly 32 percent over from the previous year.

So, why does an abortion corporation which makes a profit almost every year need our tax dollars? Good question!

Planned Parenthood’s three percent abortion services myth

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on August 7, 2015 by saynsumthn

Dispelling Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortion is only 3% of the services it offers.

As Center for Medical Progress videos showing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome baby parts harvesting operation make their way into the homes of many Americans, the abortion biz is regurgitating an old myth, that abortion is a small percent of what Planned Parenthood does.

Planned Parenthood 2013 to 2014 abortion stats federal money

In 2013, Planned Parenthood reported performing 327,653 abortions.

In 2012, they reported 327,166 abortions and in 2011, they admitted to killing 333,964 unborn children through abortion.

A few years ago, Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher, addressed Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortion is only 3% of what they do.

Do you find it strange that whenever someone correctly points out that Planned Parenthood is the nation’s number one abortion profiteer, Planned Parenthood enthusiasts tie themselves up in knots trying to sell the lie that abortion is only 3 percent of what they do?” Crutcher asked in a video posted to YouTube.

“Of course, this is like defending the Ku Klux Klan by claiming that lynching is only 3 percent of what they do, but I’ll leave that issue for another time. After all, I don’t want the Klan to come after me for comparing them to Planned Parenthood,” he states in his video message.

Crutcher points out that when there is even the most innocuous legislation proposed that might have the effect of reducing the abortion rate even a tiny amount, Planned Parenthood will oppose it claiming that restricting abortion will shut down all their clinics.

Cruther asked that if abortions are only a small percent of what Planned Parenthood does, why would Planned Parenthood say they will have to close down their clinics if abortion is restricted?

The only plausible answer is baby killing is a lot more than 3 percent of their profit. And that’s the reality. The bottom line is that this is just one more pro-choice lie. These people know exactly how barbaric abortion is, and they are desperate to do whatever they can to advocate it without being linked to it. And that’s another reason why they are losing this battle,” he stated.

According to the pro-life group, Students for Life (SFL), “Planned Parenthood preys off young girls in crisis, locating right near our high schools and college campuses, telling them abortion is their only real option in their moment of desperation,” the largest pro-life student organization says on their website.

SFL research found that 79% of Planned Parenthood centers are located within 5 miles of a college campus.

SFL PlannedParentshoogFacts2013-2

Students for Life used Planned Parenthood’s 2013 annual report and noted the following:

    Planned Parenthood facilities performed 327,653
    This means they committed 897 abortions every single day.
    And 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services were abortions.
    Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million in U.S. taxpayer funding, making up 46% of their annual revenue.

Since 2009:

    Planned Parenthood’s contraceptive services have dropped by 7%, and their cancer screening and prevention services have dropped by 50%.
    Planned Parenthood has performed over 1.9 million abortions.
    And their U.S. taxpayer funding has increased by 46%.

The video below, produced by SFL, dispels Planned Parenthood’s myth further using the abortion giant’s 2012 annual report.

Rita Dillar

Research from Rita Dillar, national director of American Life League’s Stop Planned Parenthood Project, showed that Planned Parenthood, which wants to normalize abortion, committed 31.6 percent of all abortions in the United States in 2011.

In other words, she says, Planned Parenthood committed one out of every three abortions in the United States in 2011.

Diller didn’t just look at 2011 she compared abortion figures based on the Guttmacher report entitled “Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2011,” and Planned Parenthood’s annual reports, showing Planned Parenthood’s ever-increasing share of the U.S. abortion market and found the following:

    Planned Parenthood committed 31.6% of abortions nationwide in 2011
    Planned Parenthood committed 23.3% of abortions nationwide in 2006
    Planned Parenthood committed 16.5% of abortions nationwide in 2001
    Planned Parenthood committed 11.3% of abortions nationwide in 1996
    Planned Parenthood committed 8.5% of abortions nationwide in 1991
    Planned Parenthood committed 6.2% of abortions nationwide in 1986

(Additional abortion totals by year from Planned Parenthood are available here.)

Writing for Breitbart, Austin Ruse, who heads the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-Fam) , called Planned Parenthood’s 3% claim an enormousness lie.

It is fairly easy to look behind the claim, however, and do it using “the organization’s own data.” Ruse writes.

“Planned Parenthood arrives at this percentage by dividing 330,000 annual abortions into 11,000,000 annual “services.” All “services” are therefore equal…and abortion is the most expensive service Planned Parenthood provides,” he adds.

Rich Lowry editor of National Review, called Planned Parenthood’s claim the “3% dodge.”

The 3 percent figure is an artifice and a dodge, but even taking it on its own terms, it’s not much of a defense. Only Planned Parenthood would think saying that they only kill babies 3 percent of the time is something to brag about. How much credit would we give someone for saying he only drives drunk 3 percent of the time, or only cheats on business trips 3 percent of the time, or only hits his wife during 3 percent of domestic disputes?” Lowry says.

Adding:

    By its own accounting in its 2013–2014 annual report, it provides about as many abortions as Pap tests (380,000).

    The group does more breast exams and provides more breast-care services (490,000), but not by that much.

    The 3 percent figure is an artifice and a dodge, but even taking it on its own terms, it’s not much of a defense.

    The 3 percent figure is derived by counting abortion as just another service like much less consequential services. So abortion is considered a service no different than a pregnancy test (1.1 million), even though a box with two pregnancy tests can be procured from the local drugstore for less than $10.

    By Planned Parenthood’s math, a woman who gets an abortion but also a pregnancy test, an STD test, and some contraceptives has received four services, and only 25 percent of them are abortion. This is a little like performing an abortion and giving a woman an aspirin, and saying only half of what you do is abortion.

While all this seems great if you are pro-life, the claim has also been criticized by an abortion leaning online media outlet.

The information was discovered by pro-life blogger and National Campaign Chair of the Susan B Anthony List, Jill Stanek, who tweeted this:

Jill Stanek

A 2013 article , published in Slate Magazine, not known for being pro-life on abortion, called Planned Parenthood’s claim that abortion is 3% of all it’s services, “the most meaning abortion stat ever.”

From the report:

    Amanda, it’s been so long since I’ve seen a reference to the claim that abortions make up only 3 percent of the services that Planned Parenthood provides that I thought maybe they’d stopped trying. It might not be a technically incorrect number, but it is meaningless—to the point of being downright silly— for several reasons. Not the least of which being that Planned Parenthood “unbundles” all of its services so that a pack of pills, an STD test and an exam are three separate services.

Slate August 2015

The Slate article continues:

    It’s impossible to know how much money Planned Parenthood brings in for abortion. Because as specific as the annual report is about the number of services it provides, it’s far less detailed when talking about where its revenue comes from (They are within their rights, so whatever). But it’s easy to calculate, as the Weekly Standard did, that Planned Parenthood gets at least a third of its clinic income—and more than 10 percent of all its revenue, government funding included—from its abortion procedures.

    Ask anyone who runs a for-profit business or nonprofit charity if something that brings in one-third of their revenue is “central” to their endeavor, and the answer is likely to be yes. So yes, abortion is central to what Planned Parenthood does.

The Irony of Truth and the Planned Parenthood Pro-choice deception

Posted in Abortion, Planned Parenthood, pro-choice, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , on March 15, 2011 by saynsumthn


If the Klu Klux Klan gave to charity would you want the United States Government to use your tax dollars to fund them?

Then why do we allow the funding of Planned Parenthood- an organization based on racism whose founder they praise today was a noted KLAN Speaker?

If the KLAN only lynched 3% of blacks but they helped 97% of Whites, would you approve of their actions?

Why then do you believe the lies Planned Parenthood tells when they admit they KILL BABIES IN THE WOMB from ABORTION – even ONE is to many, but they killed over 300,000 children !!!

If “men are going to rape anyway” would you want it to be legal and provided in a safe place where they can get tested?

Then why do we buy the argument that if abortion ( which is the killing of children) is made illegal women will “get them anyway in back alleys) ” ? We do not legalize crimes , murder , or abuse because it will “happen anyway” !

Don’t buy the lies….Tell the truth !
