PP: the trend continues

leave a comment »

Annie at After Abortion offers the following after looking over Planned Parenthood’s 2003- 2004 Annual Report:

… probably the most fascinating statistical juxtaposition of all: PP delivered 3,097,597 ways of preventing pregnancies in 2003 (birth control, EC, reversibles for men and women), yet also delivered 6.1% MORE abortions and did 9.6% FEWER adoption referrals than the year before.

She has worked out a lot more as well. I don’t know which statistic is the saddest. Probably this one: adoption referrals went down for the sixth year in row.

Then again maybe it’s this one:

Abortions went UP 6.1%, and represented 93% of all pregnancies seen. We don’t know how much the average charge per abortion is, but assuming it was $400, that’s $97,851,200 from abortions, or about 32% of clinic revenue.
