Profitable organization getting increasing government funds as private donations decrease

( - American Life League's STOPP International has released its analysis of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America's 2003-2004 Annual Report. STOPP notes that last year Planned Parenthood increased the numbers of surgical abortions at its own facilities by 6.1 percent to 244,628. The pro-life group added that the figures indicate that Planned Parenthood has surgically killed 3.5 million babies since 1970.

Despite Planned Parenthood's claim that it offers mainly counseling and contraceptives, the report reveals the organization took in an estimated $104 million from its surgical abortion business, accounting for over one-third of its $302.6 million clinic income.

While Planned Parenthood (PPFA) claims to make referrals for adoption, its record on such referrals has become so skewed the claim seems laughable. In 1997 when Gloria Feldt first took over as president of PPFA the group's abortion/adoption ratio was 18 abortions for every adoption. Last year Planned Parenthood aborted 138 children for every adoption referral to an outside agency.

Private donations to the agency have dropped but taxpayer funds continue to be pumped into the organization despite massive profits. Private donations to Planned Parenthood declined for the second time in three years, as contributions and bequests dropped 17 percent to $191 million. However, elected officials granted PPFA a record $265.2 million in public funding, nearly 33 percent of its $810 million total income.

For the 18th year in a row, Planned Parenthood turned a net profit. This year's $35.2 million brings its total profits over the 18 years to $538 million.

The report indicates that PPFA care little for the safety of the women it claims to want to serve. Even after 18-year-old Holly Patterson was killed by complications from an RU-486 abortion at Planned Parenthood, the organization sold the dangerous abortion pill over 95,000 times at 203 of its clinics.

Jim Sedlak, STOPP executive director commented on the findings saying, "This report shows the public is increasingly rejecting Planned Parenthood's radical agenda, but apparently our elected officials haven't gotten the message. Now is the time for Americans to expand the growing efforts to close Planned Parenthood clinics and to put pressure on politicians to stop the obscene amount of taxpayer money that is being funneled to the nation's largest abortion chain."
