By Carole Novielli

Planned Parenthood abortions have now reached nearly 400,000, climbing by almost 20,000 in the past reported year alone.

Calling 2022-23 a “year of moving mountains,” the abortion corporation’s report indicates that while abortions increased, clients decreased — and taxpayer funding hit nearly $700 million.


What has increased at Planned Parenthood since the last report?

  • Abortion numbers (up by 5% since last annual report; up 100% since 2000 to a record high 392,715 abortions)
  • Revenue, private revenue, and excess revenue
  • Prenatal care (slight increase of 1% since last annual report; 62 abortions for every one prenatal care service; down 80% since 2010)
  • Unspecified “miscarriage care” (possibly surgical abortions after failed chemical abortions) up by 36% in one year
  • STI testing and treatment (up by 5% since last report; down 15% since 2019)

What has decreased at Planned Parenthood since the last report?

  •  Client numbers (down by 4% since last annual report; down 34% since 2006)
  • Number of donors (down 21% in a year)
  • Contraceptive services (includes counseling and care, down by 4% in a year; down 44% since 2009
  • Overall cancer screenings (breast exams and pap smears; slight overall decrease of 1%, pap smears down 13.5%)
  • Preventative care visits (down by 4%)
  • Adoption referrals (down by 5%, with 228 abortions for every one adoption referral)
  • Transgender services and other procedures (down by 30% from the 1500% increase a year prior)

Planned Parenthood killed an average of 1,076 preborn babies every day, nearly 45 every hour, and one every 80 seconds in 2022-23.

Let’s take a look at these numbers in more detail below.

Abortion numbers UP

Planned Parenthood abortions rose by nearly five percent (4.96%) after a slight drop last year, according to the latest figures. In the 2021-22 report, Planned Parenthood listed 374,155 abortions; now, those abortions have climbed to a whopping 392,715 reported in the corporation’s 2022-23 annual report — the highest recorded to date.

This puts the deaths of preborn children from abortion at Planned Parenthood among the leading causes of death for 2022. Provisional data from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that “During 2022, the three leading causes of death were heart disease (699,659 deaths), cancer (607,790), and unintentional injury (218,064).”

Tragically, the 2022-23 annual report shows that between 2022 and 2023, the taxpayer-funded abortion corporation killed an additional 18,560 preborn babies.

In the past few years, Planned Parenthood has bulked up its marketing of abortion — or, as they like to call it, their “patient navigation campaign of online search ads” — to thwart women from seeking aid at multiple pro-life pregnancy help centers.

In the latest report, the abortion corporation claimed that 863,000 users accessed their abortion finder website between July 2022 and June 2023, the year following the demise of Roe v. Wade.

“Demand at Planned Parenthood… in states where abortion is protected has soared by up to 700%,” the report claimed. “In the year after the decision, 90 patient navigators across 41 Planned Parenthood affiliates helped more than 33,000 people get the transportation and travel support, financial assistance, and referrals they needed to get abortion care.”

In the past decade, Planned Parenthood abortions have increased 20%. However, since 2000, abortions at Planned Parenthood have risen nearly 100%.

In addition, since 2000, Planned Parenthood has committed over 7.1 million abortions and received nearly $10.7 billion from taxpayers.

Abortion market share remains at 40%

As a corporation, Planned Parenthood killed an average of 1,076 preborn babies every day, nearly 45 every hour, and one every 80 seconds in 2022-23.

Planned Parenthood abortions make up 40% of all abortions in the U.S.

Abortion pill now 70% of corporation’s abortions

Nationally, abortions have reached a record high in a decade, with an estimated 1,026,690 abortions reported by the Guttmacher Institute in 2023.

Expanding abortion pill access is credited as one reason for the increase.

While national abortion pill use has now reached 63% of all abortions, a recent claim from the president of Planned Parenthood has indicated that 70% of abortion sales at Planned Parenthood are now committed by this method.

This means that in 2022-23, it is likely that nearly 275,000 (274,900) of all Planned Parenthood abortions (392,715) were committed by the deadly abortion pill regimen (mifepristone and misoprostol).

Prenatal care slightly UP

Prenatal care services at Planned Parenthood increased slightly — 1.15% — from 6,244 in 2021-22 to 6,316 in 2022-23. Planned Parenthood now commits nearly 62 abortions for every one prenatal care service they provide.

Prenatal services have been on the decline at Planned Parenthood, dropping drastically in the past years, and decreasing a staggering 80% (79.69%) from the 31,098 prenatal services reported in 2010.

Miscarriage care, STI testing/treatment UP

“Miscarriage care” is a relatively new service category for Planned Parenthood, and some speculate that the treatment could be used to clean up abortion pill complications. While the organization does not specify what constitutes “miscarriage care,” this unspecified service has risen nearly 36% (35.85%), from 2,653 in 2021-22 to 3,604 in 2022-23.

While total STI services were up by 5% from last year (4,411,825 in 2021-22 to 4,633,499 in 2022-23), they have dropped nearly 15% (14.73%) from 5,434,446 recorded in 2019.

Revenue UP

In 2022-23, Planned Parenthood again exceeded previous amounts of taxpayers’ dollars flooding their coffers, rising 4.31% from the $670.4 million granted to them in 2021-22 to nearly $700 million ($699.3 M) reported for the year ending June 30, 2023.

This report also revealed that taxpayer funding to the abortion corporation had risen $28.9 million in just the past year, making it 34% of the organization’s total revenue.

In just the past decade, government (taxpayer) funding to Planned Parenthood has increased by 29.4%.

And since 2000, taxpayer dollars to this abortion behemoth have climbed a whopping 245% — from $202.7 million received in 2000 to nearly $700 million ($699.3 M) reported for the year ending on June 30, 2023.

Excess revenue UP

As of June 30, 2023, Planned Parenthood accumulated over $2 BILLION ($ 2,054.3B) in total revenue, up from the $1.9 ($1,906.7) BILLION in revenue they reported as of June 30, 2022.

Expenses as of the end of June 2023 tallied over $1.8 billion ($1,875.7).

Planned Parenthood’s excess revenue over expenses came to $178.6 million, slightly less than what it was in 2021-22.

To date, Planned Parenthood’s total balance sheet (ending on June 30, 2023) shows that the organization’s net assets and liabilities have risen to over $2.9 billion, the highest recorded in recent years.

Private revenue UP, number of donors DOWN

“Our broad base of committed donors provide approximately 91% of the national organizations’ revenue and 42% of affiliate revenue,” claimed the abortion corporation, adding that this was somehow “evidence of our robust grassroots support.”

But that claim might be a bit overstated, as “active individual contributors” fell nearly 21% (20.77%) from 727,000 in 2021-22 (which broke a falling trend of donors over past years) to nearly 576,000 by 2022-23.

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s report also showed that private contributions made up just 47% of overall revenue. And yet, this is the highest recorded total for private donations on record.

Client numbers DOWN

In the 2022-23 report, Planned Parenthood reported fewer clients than in previous years, dropping nearly four percent (3.76%) from the 2.13 million recorded in the 2021-22 annual report to 2.05 million in the 2022-23 annual report.

This represents a client decrease of nearly 34% (33.87%) from the 3.1 million clients recorded in its 2006 report — and yet, taxpayer dollars to the corporation have gone up year after year.

Planned Parenthood’s total facilities (nearly 600) and affiliates (49) remained basically the same as the previous year.

Total services at Planned Parenthood increased less than half a percent, from 9,117,154 in 2021-22 to 9,131,975 recorded in 2022-23.

Contraceptive services DOWN

Total contraceptive services (which includes “counseling and care”) were down from last year by just over 4% (2,348,275 in 2021-22 to 2,250,913 recorded in 2022-23) but have dropped nearly 44% (43.86%) from the 4,009,549 recorded in 2009.

Total cancer services slightly DOWN

Overall cancer screenings decreased from where they were last year, dropping 1.36% from 470,419 offered in 2021-22 to 464,021 offered in 2022-23. Total cancer screenings have dropped nearly 79% (78.50%) from a high of 2,157,849 in 2004.

Breast screenings at Planned Parenthood increased over 10% (10.16%) from 193,045 offered in 2021-22 to 212,655 offered in 2022-23. In the past, Planned Parenthood has provided only manual breast exams. Live Action News is unaware if this has changed. Planned Parenthood’s “breast care” services have dropped over 80% (80.43%) from the 1,086,654 they provided in 2000.

Pap tests fell nearly 14% (13.50%) from 228,466 offered in 2021-22 to 197,617 in 2022-23, but have dropped over 83% (83.3%) from a high of 1,183,692 in 2004.

 Preventative care visits (formerly ‘well-woman’ exams) DOWN

Planned Parenthood’s total of “other reproductive health services” (which once included well-woman exams, pregnancy tests, prenatal care, and miscarriage care) decreased over four percent (4.09%), from 1,110,249 in 2021-22 to 1,065,041 in 2022-23.

Pregnancy tests increased slightly, from 914,116 in 2021-22 to 925,905 in 2022-23.

It is important to note that the “well woman exam” category has been replaced by the category known as “preventative care visits.” If these categories are equal and the “woman” moniker was changed under the auspices of inclusivity, it would reveal a nearly 31% decrease (30.98%) from 187,234 “preventative care visits” in 2021-22 to 129,216 in 2022-23. Despite this, the category has decreased over 45% (45.10%) from a “well woman exams” high of 235,355 in 2016.

Adoption referrals DOWN

Adoption referrals decreased nearly five percent (4.55%) at Planned Parenthood, from 1,803 in 2021-22 to 1,721 in 2022-23.

These adoption referrals have fallen nearly 65% from a high of 4,912 recorded in 2007. What this shows is that Planned Parenthood kills over 228 preborn babies for every one adoption referral.

Transgender services and other procedures DOWN

Planned Parenthood’s “other procedures” category, which includes “transgender services,” climbed over 1500% from 15,902 in 2020 to 256,550 in 2021. However, in the 2022-23 report, that service fell by 30% from the year prior, to 177,237.

The report noted that Planned Parenthood now has 45 affiliates “providing gender-affirming hormone therapy” and, interestingly, 35 affiliates reportedly offer “depression screening,” while 49 affiliates offered “telehealth” services.

Live Action News will publish more on this service in a separate report.


Planned Parenthood now receives over $1.9 million dollars from U.S. taxpayers every day while servicing fewer clients and decreasing legitimate health services.

And instead of offering real help to women, in 2022-23, the abortion corporation doubled down on its commitment to end the lives of nearly 400,000 innocent preborn babies, now committing over 228 abortions for every one adoption referral and 62 abortions for every one prenatal care service they provide.
