America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, has reportedly performed over 320,000 abortions over the past year.
The exact number of babies aborted by Planned Parenthood, according to an annual report is 321,384, reports The Christian Institute.
Although this number is still much too high in the minds of pro-life advocates, it is lower than the previous year.
Planned Parenthood received $543.7 million in taxpayer funding between 2016 and 2017 and its revenue was $1.46 billion. Former Planned Parenthood Director Abby Johnson said this shows that the organization is not primarily a healthcare provider for women:
“Their annual report demonstrates that Planned Parenthood is not a healthcare organization but a political movement, intent on forcing their pro-abortion views on as many Americans as possible,” said Johnson.
The pro-life movement, however, continues to gain ground. President Trump has supported several pro-life measures and more young people are getting involved in the cause.
Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins had these optimistic words going forward:
“But there is a silver lining in this release, as we can see that more students are responding to the human rights interests of the preborn than to the business interests of Planned Parenthood.”
