Last year I reported that according to Planned Parenthood’s 2008 annual report they did 134 abortions for every adoption referral (they don’t do adoptions themselves).
Well I just took a look at Planned Parenthood’s latest fact sheet which pulls data from 2009 (it is July, 2011 and they haven’t released any 2010 numbers) and guess what? Abortion are up and adoption referrals are down. How bad is it?
- 332,278 abortions of human embryos and fetuses
- 977 adoption referrals
That makes the new ratio 333 terminations performed for every adoption referral.
Does this statistic bother you?
