Planned Parenthood’s Latest Annual Report: The Abortion Giant Has Gone “Above and Beyond” in Taking the Lives of Preborn Babies

Apr 17, 2024 | 2024 Press Releases, Press Releases, Press Room

WASHINGTON — Planned Parenthood released its 2022-2023 annual report late Tuesday, and it shows that Planned Parenthood continues to perform a record number of abortions.

The service figures in this latest annual report cover October 1, 2021 to September 30, 2022. The report includes numbers for approximately three months following the June 2022 U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Women’s Health Services that overturned Roe v. Wade. 

For the year the annual report covers, Planned Parenthood performed 392,715 abortions, or about 4 in 10 abortions, and abortions outnumbered prenatal care 62 to 1.

“Planned Parenthood has gone beyond the pale in its hardline promotion of abortion for any reason and at any time,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “The abortion giant’s primary mission to destroy unborn children cannot be clearer.” 

Tobias continued, “Planned Parenthood has continued its aggressive abortion advocacy, and is uncompromising in its promotion of unlimited abortion. The nation’s largest abortion provider continues to perform abortions at an unprecedented rate.”

Planned Parenthood took in a record $2.054 billion in revenue making the abortion giant one of the nation’s most profitable “non-profits.”

Planned Parenthood boosted its abortion numbers by facilitating “transportation and travel support, financial assistance, and referrals.”

Of the over $2 billion in revenue, $699.3 million (34%) of Planned Parenthood’s revenue came from taxpayers in the form of “Government Health Services Reimbursements & Grants.”

“Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report shows that the abortion industry giant puts abortion above all other pregnancy-related services,” said Randall K. O’Bannon, Ph.D., director of Education and Research for National Right to Life, one of the right-to-life movement’s most authoritative experts on the Planned Parenthood.

Most of Planned Parenthood’s expenses went toward “medical services,” which came in at $1.144 billion. It is impossible to estimate how much of these expenses were for performing abortions because Planned Parenthood does not make these numbers public and the prices for abortions vary regionally at Planned Parenthood affiliates. In addition, the cost of different abortion procedures varies based on how old the unborn baby is at the time of the abortion, making even general calculations impossible.

Planned Parenthood’s annual report also shows that prenatal services and adoption referrals, already rare at Planned Parenthood, were the lowest numbers in over a decade.

  • Just 6,316 women received prenatal care at Planned Parenthood clinics.
  • Just 1,721 women were referred for adoptions.

Founded in 1968, the National Right to Life Committee (NRLC), the federation of 50 state right-to-life affiliates and more than 3,000 local chapters, is the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots pro-life organization. Recognized as the flagship of the pro-life movement, NRLC works through legislation and education to protect innocent human life from abortion, infanticide, assisted suicide and euthanasia.
