Another good year for Planned Parenthood

Remember when I reported on the record high profits that Planned Parenthood, a non-profit organization, received last year?
Business at Planned Parenthood is going very well. The Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) just released their annual report for the 2005 - 2006 fiscal year. The nonprofit organization performed a record 264,943 abortions, attained a high profit of $55.8 million, and received record taxpayer funding of $305.3 million.

$55.8 million profit? Baby-killing is a pretty lucrative business, I guess.

Well, their report for the 2006 - 2007 fiscal year is even better. They made over $1 billion in profits.
A new annual report from Planned Parenthood shows the nation's largest abortion business has made over $1 billion in income for the first time in its history. The non-profit pro-abortion group shows the historical gain in its new annual report covering 2006-2007.

While Planned Parenthood made $972 milion in its 2005-2006 annual report, last fiscal year it brought in $1.017 billion.

On its web site posting of the annual document, Planned Parenthood says it "highlights our advancements in providing and protecting trusted health care services and medically accurate sexuality education."

Instead, the report finds Planned Parenthood doing more abortions than ever before.

The report shows an increase in the number of provided abortions from 264,943 in 2005 to 289,650 in 2006.

Planned Parenthood reveals it has doubled “excess of revenue over expenses” funds from $55.7 million in 2005 to $112 million in 2006.

Of concern to pro-life groups, Planned Parenthood acknowledges the receipt of over $336 million in government grants and contracts from both state and federal governments. However, the abortion business provides no breakdown showing how much Planned Parenthood received from the federal government or specifics states.

Maybe this is a dumb question. But at what point does the government take away your non-profit status? I'd think reporting over $1 billion in profits would be a pretty big red flag.

Here is what Planned Parenthood is getting so wealthy off of:


For every murdered infant, Planned Parenthood is getting roughly $3,500.

Maybe that's why Planned Parenthood tries to convince so many confused girls that there are no other options, that it isn't a baby (just a blob of flesh!), that their parents don't need to know, to not wait a few days to think it over, and that there won't be any harmful side effects -- baby-killing is an incredibly lucrative business! Remember Lila Rose?

Michelle Malkin even did a Vent on the subject:


Safe, legal, and rare?

Don't kid yourself.

No, the $1 billion was income, not profit. Look at the story -- it notes the, uh, profit doubled to $112 million. Not chump change, but don't break out the Dr. Evil hand gesture just yet...

Yup, income/profit. Was about to point out the same thing.

Now, 264k dead babies goes into a billion dollars income...uh...well, just a shade north of the $3500 you talked about near the end.

To say people are making money off the procedure, is widely regarded as a piece of right-wing rant. Seems to me, therefore, that's a piece of information that needs to be getting out. I wonder if you can pay them in crude. Forty barrels per dead baby.

It's better than having thousands of children being birthed into poverty and growing up to become criminals. Stupid people get pregnant too, and some people just should not reproduce. Also, mistakes happen all the time. Adoption is one option, but let's face it, pregnancy can ruin lives when unplanned.

Wow! This is so ignorant. Did you even read the article?

Especially when, as the annual report makes clear, the medical services side of PP runs at a loss. Just sayin'.

Uh, excuse me, the annual report makes clear that the medical side of PP spent $548.1 million for the fiscal year compared with $345.1 million in private donations PLUS $305.1 million in government contracts.

If the point is that they're upholding "Hanna"'s vision, which is essentially eugenics, and making a tidy profit doing it, the report seems to be substantiating it nicely. So does this.
