Planned Parenthood reports abortion decline; pro-lifers see hopeful signs for the unborn


WASHINGTON (BP) – The latest report from the country’s No. 1 abortion provider has provided a piece of encouraging news for a pro-life movement that experienced another year marked by hopeful signs.


The report shows 149 abortions for every adoption referral Planned Parenthood makes.

Responding to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s release of its facility and service numbers for 2012, Rita Diller, national director of American Life League’s STOPP International project, said that the new numbers “once again show a business in decline.” The numbers reflect “patient care provided by Planned Parenthood affiliate health centers from 10/01/11 – 9/20/12.”

These are the figures she provided LifeNews:

PPFA reported a substantial drop in its clinic numbers between December 2012 and December 2013. At the end of 2012, it had 750 centers, while it reports “more than 700″ at the end of 2013. Its affiliate numbers are down as well, dropping from 73 to 69 over the last year. Affiliates are entities that operate Planned Parenthood centers within a set geographical area.

Planned Parenthood reported a 6.7 percent decrease worldwide in customers for its “sexual and reproductive healthcare and education.” In the U.S., it reported seeing 10,000 fewer unduplicated customers than in 2011.

One of the most glaring numbers was the steep decline in prenatal services-a 31.97 percent decline from the prior year.

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s highly touted cancer screening services dropped 14.22 percent from the 2011 numbers.


Praise God…


Excellent news! We need to continue to work and pray.


Thanks be to God and 40 Days For Life! :tiphat:

We will see the lie that the pro abortion industry wants abortion to be safe and rare exposed the more and more rare abortions become.

Of couse less abortions are good news, but I can’t help but wonder… is this really a result of more people seeing the evil of abortion, or is it simply the use of more birth control?
