Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report reveals that for every adoption referral the organization made they performed 82 abortions, and the federal government is the group’s largest source of funding. The abortion giant received more than $543 million in federal dollars in the most recent fiscal year, despite seeing fewer patients.
The Catholic News Agency reported the organization received 61 percent more in government funding than in the previous year. In 2017, the group saw 2.4 million patients at its hundreds of locations nationwide.
Planned Parenthood’s excess revenue also increased by 27 percent from $77.5 million to $98.5 million. The group performed a total of 321,384 abortion procedures, approximately 878 per day, in fiscal year 2016-2017.
CNS columnist Terence P. Jeffrey ran the numbers further, calculating that if Planned Parenthood had done its abortion procedures around the clock for the entire year, they would have had to abort about 37 babies per hour, one every 98 seconds, to make their yearly total.
