STILL RUNNING: Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky’s Clients Continue to Leave Them in Droves

A recent review of Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky’s (PPINK) 2017 annual report shows that clients continue to abandon the abortion business. PPINK’s client base has been cut nearly cut in half over the last decade and total visits are down 22 percent from 2016 to 2017. Only .004 percent of Indiana and Kentucky’s populations are seen by PPINK.

Women are abandoning Planned Parenthood in record numbers because they know they can receive quality care elsewhere,” said Sue Swayze Liebel, Vice President of Public Affairs at Indiana Right to Life. “Despite declining patient and procedure numbers, Planned Parenthood refuses to recognize that women don’t want to visit an abortion business for health services. Planned Parenthood suffered a major blow to its reputation when the Center for Medical Progress videos showed the abortion chain’s unethical dealings in the baby body parts market. Women deserve better. Taxpayers deserve better. It’s time to defund Planned Parenthood.”

Clients:

Procedures:

The majority of PPINK’s procedure numbers, excluding abortion, are drastically down over the last decade. For example, in 2008, Planned Parenthood did 46,932 pap tests, compared with 4,384 in 2017.

Poverty:

PPINK also continues to see fewer clients in poverty. Ten years ago, 74 percent of its clients were at or below 150 percent poverty. In 2017, that number dropped to 52 percent.

Locations:

Ten years ago, there were 35 Parenthood facilities in Indiana. In 2017, there were only 17 facilities in Indiana and two facilities in Kentucky.

Abortions:

In 2017, PPINK did 5,230 abortions. This number is down 3 percent from 2016, but up 5 percent from 2008. Abortion remains a core part of PPINK’s business model.
