Planned Parenthood 2007 growth

April 13, 2009

Planned Parenthood Federation of America released their 2007-2008 Annual Report, which includes information regarding their finances, services, and activities for 2007-2008. The main documented increases are the total number of abortions conducted by PPFA and the total government grants and contracts received by PPFA affiliates. The total number of abortions conducted by PPFA increased from 289,750 in 2006 to 305,310 in 2007. This number has almost doubled in the past decade, since there were 160,000 PPFA-provided abortions in 1997. The total government grants and contracts received by PPFA affiliates also increased from $337 million to $350 million (this reflects grants from all government sources including state, local and federal sources). Again, these increases focus on the increase from 2006 to 2007; however, the increase in government funding over the past decade has more than doubled – from $160 million in 1997 to $350 million in 2007.
 
Another part of the Annual Report to note is that PPFA boasts that the number of adoption referrals provided by Planned Parenthood has increased by over 100% from 2006 to 2007. However, it is the first time in over a decade that the number has increased; therefore, the number of adoption referrals is still lower than it was in 1997.
