Shocking graph: Planned Parenthood now performs a third of all US abortions
American Life League’s STOPP reported in February:
Here are some comparative numbers based on the Guttmacher report entitled “Abortion Incidence and Service Availability in the United States, 2011,” and Planned Parenthood’s annual reports, showing Planned Parenthood’s ever-increasing share of the U.S. abortion market:
Planned Parenthood committed 31.6% of abortions nationwide in 2011
Planned Parenthood committed 23.3% of abortions nationwide in 2006
Planned Parenthood committed 16.5% of abortions nationwide in 2001
Planned Parenthood committed 11.3% of abortions nationwide in 1996
Planned Parenthood committed 8.5% of abortions nationwide in 1991
Planned Parenthood committed 6.2% of abortions nationwide in 1986
The graph below shows that Planned Parenthood abortions continue to soar, even as national abortion rates have declined and leveled off.

Applying actual numbers of babies murdered at PP to STOPP’s percentages above:
By 2012, Planned Parenthood had killed a total of 6 million babies, a grim milestone.
Interestingly, Planned Parenthood’s escalating numbers come at a cost to mom and pop chop shops. Normally liberals oppose big business. Who can forget their Occupy Wall Street fiasco?
But liberals apparently don’t mind that Planned Parenthood – whose NYC base of operations is ironically not far from Wall Street – is corporate Big Abortion, running smaller private abortion clinics out of business.
An abortionist at one of Planned Parenthood’s smaller competitors compared it not to Wall Street but Wal-Mart. Quoting LiveActionNews.com:
Peter Bours, a physician in Oregon, reports that new Planned Parenthood franchises in his area are making one of his offices financially untenable; whereas he has once provided 100 or more abortions per month in his Portland office, he now performs around 20. Referring to Planned Parenthood as “the Walmart of abortion clinics,” Bours contends that the larger providers offer inferior services….
As Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers climb, its claim that abortion accounts for only 3% of its business becomes all the more untenable.
Even liberal NPR debunked that lie, correcting that figure upward to 10%, meaning one in 10 of Planned Parenthood’s patients submit to abortions. And as sba-list.org pointed out, 37% of Planned Parenthood’s clinic income comes from abortion.
