Planned Parenthood has reported a record year for abortions, according to CBN News. The abortion provider's annual report shows 333,964 abortions were performed in the 2011 to 2012 fiscal year -- pushing its figures to 995,687 abortions in three years. At the same time, contraceptive services at Planned Parenthood have dropped 12 percent since 2009, and cancer screening and prevention services have dropped 29 percent. Planned Parenthood reported a record $542 million in taxpayer funding last year -- which, according to the pro-life organization Susan B. Anthony List, is 45 percent of Planned Parenthood's annual revenue. "While government subsidies to Planned Parenthood have reached an all-time high, so too has the number of lives ended by this profit-driven abortion business," said SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. "Destroying nearly 1 million children in three years is not health care and does not reflect a concern for vulnerable women and girls."
