Planned Parenthoods most recent annual report for 2011-2012, released Monday, reveals that the abortion and womens health provider received $542.4 million from taxpayers in government grants and reimbursements constituting 45 percent of the organizations revenue. Abortions constituted 3 percent of the services Planned Parenthood provided from October 2010 to September 2011. According to the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, the 333,964 abortions the organization performed in that timeframe represented a record high for Planned Parenthood. The group noted that from 2009 through 2011, Planned Parenthood performed 995,687 abortions.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That’s pretty disgusting use of our tax dollars.
Can we get a grant or reimbursement for some ammo? How about DHS spreading the wealth and doing some sharing? It’s for the children right?
It’s a totally disgusting waste of our tax dollars.
There needs to be a full-blown outright income tax revolt in this country...soon.
“Abortions constituted 3 percent of the services Planned Parenthood provided...”
I smell rats with this statement. If you applied it to a car dealership, you could likely say that “car sales only amount to 3 percent of what the dealership sells.” That is, equating the sale of one car, with the sale of one can of motor oil, or the sale of one pine tree scented ornament.
If instead you look at gross profit, the vast majority of the money a car dealership makes is in selling cars, not that other stuff, which is spare change.
And with PP, they make the bulk of their money from aborting fetuses.
Heavily subsidized, on top of that, by the government, that is not in fact paying them to do that other stuff, which is minimal, but in reality to abort fetuses.
How much do they give to Crisis Pregnancy Centers? that promote adoption? I want to know!!
Yes - very misleading and all the morons who hang onto every word from this left wing media will easily be deceived...
Claim 1: Three percent of all Planned Parenthood health services are abortion services.
Planned Parenthood offers fewer factual claims than its opponents, but a common factoid in discussions on the role of abortion in the organization’s work is Planned Parentood’s statement that abortion makes up a small fraction of its health services. The key phrase in this statement is “health services.” This is not the same as percentage of its budget or number of clients. In 2009, Planned Parenthood conducted 332,278 abortions. This is three percent of the 11 million services it provided. Clients, however, often receive multiple services. A woman receiving a yearly gynecological exam would likely be counted as one of the 900,000 pap tests, 800,000 breast exams, and other services. Planned Parenthood had 3 million clients, making women receiving an abortion around 10 percent of its clients.
AND the Repubicans control the purse string into its third year.
This is Republicans allowing this.
This should be Nancy Pelosi’s first cut if she really wants to save money.
Tragic we’re the abortion capital of the known universe.
It is amazing to me...The amount of abortions performed last year exceeds the population of a city the size of St Louis MO. And the libs who support this group wants to ban guns.......
I used to be chairman of the Christian Action Council back in the 70's and we held prayer meetings, handed out tracts, held silent prayer vigils and prayed for folks walking in to the baby slaughterhouses. I was almost killed by cars twice, almost gutted by a knife wielder and threatened through the mail many times. Nope, not a soul was jailed, not even a court case because I was the "provoker." And that was the 70's..of course I'm the extremist! Go figger!
I can't imagine what a stack of 336,000 dead babies would look like. Can't even fathom over fifty million dead babies. And the president seems to LIKE killing babies but for some odd reason he has two lovely children. I've heard he voted for late term abortion and was or is allegedly promoting after birth "abortions." or maybe that's on the block after he takes his secret oath of office.
