Planned Parenthood performed a record 354,871 abortions in 2019-2020 and received a record $618.1 million in government funding. This occurred despite the fact that the organization is no longer participating in Title X and in a year when the U.S. implemented widespread lockdowns.

“Planned Parenthood’s business is abortion, not health care,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life non-profit, Susan B. Anthony List. Responding to Planned Parenthood’s 2019-2020 Annual Report, Dannenfelser said. “At a time when U.S. abortions overall have long been on the decline, Planned Parenthood is ending the lives of more than 354,000 unborn children a year. With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House, we can expect this alarming trend to continue.” 

Number of Abortions Up, Despite Pandemic 

There is no doubt that the Biden administration is staunchly pro-choice, but it is nevertheless the case that these record highs in abortions and tax-payer funding took place while Donald Trump was in office and despite the fact that Planned Parenthood withdrew from Title X in August 2019. Planned Parenthood made this decision after the Trump administration released rules earlier that year that, with certain exceptions, prohibited Title X participants from providing abortions or from referring patients to get abortions. The Supreme Court of the United States will hear a set of cases this year challenging the Trump administration’s limitations to Title X; Planned Parenthood is a plaintiff in at least one of the cases.

To illustrate the significance of Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report, what follows is a list of the number of abortion services Planned Parenthood has reported every year, starting with 2011-2012. The list also includes the amount of government funding the organization has received each year and its percentage of Planned Parenthood’s total revenue. Note that abortion is not the only service Planned Parenthood provides, and the organization receives funding from private donors and other non-government sources.
