Planned Parenthood performed nearly 350,000 abortions during its most recent fiscal year – a record number that pro-life groups say underscores the organization’s tragic real mission.

Planned Parenthood’s report for 2018-19 shows the organization’s clinics performed a total of 345,672 abortions during the fiscal year, an increase over the 332,757 abortions in 2017-18 and the 321,384 abortions in 2016-17.

It’s the highest number of abortions ever reported by Planned Parenthood, which has seen a dramatic increase in abortions performed since 2000-01, when it reported 197,070 such procedures. It topped 200,000 abortions for the first time in 2001-02, and passed 300,000 abortions in 2007-08.

Planned Parenthood’s total number of abortions has increased even as the overall number of abortions in the U.S. has declined.

In 2000-01, Planned Parenthood performed about 15 percent of the nation’s abortions. Based on the new data, that number has jumped to an estimated 40 percent, according to Live Action, which tracks abortion data.
