Nearly 1 in 3 Abortions Happen At Planned Parenthood ‘Health’ Centers

Planned Parenthood is performing more abortions — now about one in three in the U.S. — and is providing less non-abortion services in its “health centers,” even as demand for abortions and its overall client base are declining.

The share of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood jumped from about 20 percent of all U.S. abortions in 2004 (255,015) to a record high of about 32 percent in 2011 (333,964), an analysis of Planned Parenthood and federal data published Wednesday by Americans United for Life (AUL) shows.

Relevant federal data ends in 2011, but Planned Parenthood has continued to report high numbers of abortions since then, performing 327,653 abortions in 2013. And the percentage of its patients who have abortions increased from about 9 percent in 2004 to about 12 percent in 2013.
