Planned Parenthood has been riding a downward spiral while enjoying increased federal tax subsidies year after year.
American Life League (ALL) has been tracking the abortion giant for many years. The pro-life organization has just completed its annual survey of locations for the abortion business to give Americans a better idea of the extent to which Planned Parenthood is shutting is doors across the United States.
ALL Executive Director Jim Sedlak has the numbers to prove Planned Parenthood’s descent, noting that bad news for the world’s largest abortion provider is good news for pro-life advocates.
“We are happy to report that they closed 27 more facilities in 2016, and they only opened eight new ones – so a net loss of 19 Planned Parenthood facilities in 12 months. That's the way we like to see it go.”
Many of the closings involved clinics that are not making a profit, and those customers must go to Planned Parenthoods elsewhere -- if they want the services.
“They're now down to 624 facilities across the country from a high of 938 – so they've lost one-third of their facilities,” Sedlak pointed out.
Planned Parenthood received a little more than $553 million from the federal government for the current budget year, yet the number of health services it provides has been decreasing annually. Instead, the non-profit – which makes a profit each year – is promoting its cash cow, abortion, to generate more revenue.
And it is noted by pro-life advocates that abortion has nothing to do with health care.
