Abortions up, adoption referrals way down at Planned Parenthood

According to the latest numbers from Planned Parenthood, their organization performed 324,008 abortions in 2008, up 6.1% from the 305,310 abortion they committed in 2007. Planned Parenthood performs more than a 25% of all abortions which occur in the United States. While the number of abortions being performed in the United States has decreased over the last decade, the number of abortions performed at Planned Parenthood has risen dramatically.

The number of Planned Parenthood adoption referrals dropped a staggering 51% to 2,405. This means that for every one adoption referral, Planned Parenthood aborts 134 children.
