You did it! You helped pay Planned Parenthood a record amount in taxpayer funding. For their part, Planned Parenthood performed a record number of abortions during 2011-2012.
- During fiscal year 2011-2012, Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer funding in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. Taxpayer funding consists of 45% of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenue.
- In 2011, Planned Parenthood performed a record high 333,964 abortions.
You had a great year, you and Planned Parenthood, working together to perform one million abortions in three years! And don't forget all those adoption referrals -- the one for every 150 abortions performed -- great ratio!
The mainstream media and pundit class helped spread the message that Planned Parenthood is all about contraception and mammograms, a remarkable feat for a group that performs, well, no mammograms. We can assume the media will not publicize that contraceptive services dropped by 12 percent since 2009.
But we can rest assured that if anyone else tries to extricate itself from the abortion business, like Susan G. Komen did when it tried quietly to stop giving the group a few hundred thousand dollars a year, the media will go to bat for the abortion business. They almost assuredly will not mention that Planned Parenthood has reported $87.4 million in excess revenue and more than $1.2 billion in net assets.
That can be our little secret.
Just think what we can do next year, with your money and Planned Parenthood's abortion business and motivation (and continued Planned Parenthood intervention in federal races to the tune of $7 million a cycle!).
