Number of abortions done by Planned Parenthood of Indiana increase by over 2% according to new annual report

January 11, 2011

Indianapolis, IN – Indiana’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood of Indiana, is reporting 5,580 abortions done in 2010, an increase of more than 2% in the number of chemical and surgical abortions done at its abortion clinics in 2010 as compared to its 5,452 reported abortions for 2009. The increase amounts to 128 more abortions done in 2010 as compared to 2009. The numbers are reported in Planned Parenthood’s 2010 annual report recently posted on its website.

The increase in abortions is even more alarming in light of the increased ratio of abortions to pregnancy tests done by Planned Parenthood of Indiana in 2010. According to its annual report, the ratio of abortions to pregnancy tests increased to one abortion per every 3.79 pregnancy tests in 2010 (5,580 abortions vs. 21,156 pregnancy tests) as compared to one abortion per every 4.25 pregnancy tests in 2009 (5,452 abortions vs. 23,151 pregnancy tests).

“Planned Parenthood of Indiana’s rise in abortions is a clear indicator that abortion remains at the core of everything this organization is about,” says Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter. “This abortion rate increase is further evidence that state tax dollars can be better spent elsewhere as opposed to fueling Indiana’s largest abortion business.”

Planned Parenthood of Indiana is reporting revenue of $15,670,306 in 2010 with $2,008,760 coming from government contracts and grants. Planned Parenthood of Indiana annually does more than 50% of the total chemical and surgical abortions done in Indiana.

Earlier today, Planned Parenthood of Indiana issued a press advisory touting a total of five adoption placements, making its abortion to adoption placement ratio 1,116 abortions for every 1 adoption placement.

“Planned Parenthood and abortion go hand-in-hand,” says Fichter. “Indiana will never reduce its abortion rate by funding an organization that has a vested financial interest in doing more and more abortions.”
