To put those data into perspective:
- That's approximately one abortion every minute and one half in the United States.
- That's 896 abortions/day for each day of the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
- That's larger than the 2012 population estimated to be residing in St. Louis, MO, or Pittsburgh, PA.
The annual report also states that in the 2012-2013 fiscal year, PP received $540.6M in government grants and reimbursements (or ~45% of PP's total revenue of $1.2+B) (p. 18).
For those who are pro-life, the good news is that this year's figure was down ~6.8k abortions (or 1.97%) from the ~334k abortions performed during the previous fiscal year.
Lastly, the annual report indicates that PP and its affiliate health centers made 2.1k+ adoption referrals. That's a ratio of 1 adoption referral/149 abortions (or .67%). However, that's also down from the ~2.3k adoption referrals PP and its affiliate health centers made in the 2010-2011 fiscal year when the ratio was ~1 adoption referral/145 abortions (p. 2).
Given these data, can there be any dispute concerning what business PP is really in and the significance of government funding for PP's main "business"?
