State-funded abortions increase in US, data shows


State-funded abortions in the United States have increased by close to 3 percent, according to the latest data from Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider.

Planned Parenthood performed 354,871 abortions in 2019-20, a 2.7 percent increase from 2018-19, which was a 3 percent increase from the year before that, the organization’s latest annual report states.

“Planned Parenthood’s business is abortion, not health care,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, in response to the report.

She told, that state-funded abortions increased “when US abortions overall have long been on the decline.”

Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider. Due to its abortion business, some members of Congress and the Trump administration have sought to separate the organization from Medicaid funding and federal family planning funding.

In comparison to the number of abortions performed last year, Planned Parenthood said its affiliates provided 8,626 “prenataervices,” 2,110 instances of “miscarriage care,” 31,912 “family practice services,” and 2,667 “adoption referrals.”
