- Planned Parenthood’s annual report for 2021-2022 reveals an all-time high in taxpayer funding and continued prioritization of abortion services.
- The organization’s involvement in healthcare services such as cancer screening, prenatal care, and preventive care continues to decline.
- Planned Parenthood reported 374,155 abortions, a slight decrease from the previous year, but still significantly higher than adoption referrals.
- The organization’s revenue and government funding continue to rise, reaching $1.9 billion and $670.4 million respectively.
- The report does not fully reflect the effects of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade last summer.
Planned Parenthood’s annual report for 2021-2022 indicates an increasing emphasis on abortion services and declining involvement in actual healthcare services such as cancer screenings and preventive care. Meanwhile, taxpayer funding for the organization has hit an all-time high.
According to the report, Planned Parenthood performed 374,155 abortions, slightly less than the previous year’s record of 383,460. In contrast, adoption referrals were only 1,803, down from 1,940 the previous year. These statistics reveal that the organization performed 208 abortions for every adoption referral.
The report also shows a continued decline in health services. Breast screenings and Pap tests were up slightly from the previous year, but preventive care visits were down from 127,095 to 187,234. Prenatal services saw a sharp decrease of 85% since 2010.
Meanwhile, the financial figures presented a contrasting picture. Planned Parenthood reported an increase in net assets from $2.1 billion to $2.3 billion, government funding rose from $633.4 million to $670.4 million, and total revenue rose from $1.7 billion to $1.9 billion.
The report also revealed an aggressive push towards transgender services, with the organization mentioning “gender-affirming hormone therapy” as part of its diversification strategy.
While the report provides critical data, it does not fully reflect the impact of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision, which overturned Roe v. Wade last summer. It is still unclear how this ruling will affect Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers and overall financial health.
