Abortion Facts (from our Northern Colorado friends)


– Planned Parenthood aborts one baby every 96 seconds.
– Almost 1.4 million abortions are performed in the United States alone each year. Each abortion costs approximately $300.00, roughly $420M a year. This push for high volume and quick turnover ensures an increasing and profitable business; Planned Parenthood dispenses low dose birth control and low grade condoms at low / no costs to customers to guarantee untended pregnancies and potential abortions, http://abortionabout.com/abortionmovement.html.
– Planned Parenthood does not volunteer their services or facilities to support low income women as reflected in their $1B in revenues each year.
– The connection between breast cancer and birth control, caused by high levels of chemical estrogen, is downplayed by Planned Parenthood and ignored by major mainstream media. http://breastcancer.about.com/b/2010/01/08/abortion-birth-control-pills.htm.
– Planned Parenthood receives $11 every second in taxpayer dollars. In 2010, Planned Parenthood received $363M in federally funded taxpayer dollars. In fiscal year 2008, Planned Parenthood reported $1.038B in revenues. In addition, 34% of Planned Parenthood revenues came from taxpayers.
– Planned Parenthood saw 335,838 pregnant women in 2008; performed 324,008 abortions (96%), 2,405 (1%) adoptions, and prenatal care to 9,433 (3%).
– As all doctors know and all biology books teach, a baby’s individual DNA can be determined at conception; at 18 days a baby’s heart begins to beat; at 43 days, brain coordinates movements; at 8 weeks all organs are functioning; at 9 weeks, each baby has permanent and individual fingerprints; at 10 weeks, each baby has a sense of touch , comfort and pain; at 12 weeks, a baby can smile, suck his/her thumb, and make a fist.
– Over 2 million couples wait to adopt babies, including children of all races and those with special needs.
– They receive more than one third of their billion-dollar budget from taxpayer subsidies. And, despite being legally registered as a “non-profit” entity, Planned Parenthood reported $63 million in profits in their last annual report.
– In their latest annual report for 2008-2009, Planned Parenthood has outlined a legislative agenda to ensure that abortion is considered as “health care,” deny conscience protection to health care workers, and to increase the taxpayer funded grants.
– All Planned Parenthood funding is interchangeable; their clinics and affiliates pay dues to Planned Parenthood national, and all monies received by clinics all goes into one pot at the end of the day.
