Abortions up at Planned Parenthood again

In the least surprising news of the day, abortions provided at Planned Parenthood rose for the umpteenth year in a row. Their total for 2009 was 332,278 abortions. In the meantime, prenatal clients and adoption referrals were down.

Here's the Planned Parenthood Fact Sheet and ALL's press release.

From the ALL press release:
"Despite its protestations that abortion is only a small part of its services," said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League, "Planned Parenthood has increased its number of abortions for 15 straight years. During that time, it has gone from committing 9.3 percent of all abortions in the United States to committing 27.5 percent."

Sedlak also noted that Planned Parenthood now does 340 abortions for every one adoption referral and 47 abortions for every one prenatal care client.
