Emergency contraception up, abortion up

In a fact sheet describing their services for 2004, Planned Parenthood notes that its affiliates performed 255,015 abortions in 2004. According to Planned Parenthood's 2003-2004 annual report, Planned Parenthood affiliates performed 230,630 abortions in 2002 and 244,628 abortion is 2003.

The fact sheet also notes that Planned Parenthood had 983,537 emergency contraception (EC) clients in 2004. This number is up from 633,756 in 2002 and 774,482 in 2003.

So in the last two years, the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood has risen 10.6% even though their number of EC clients has risen by more than 55% over the same time period?

Why does Planned Parenthood claim that widespread distribution of EC will lower the number of abortion performed when they widely distribute EC and the number of abortions they perform has steadily risen?

Makes you wonder if Planned Parenthood's sweet financial deal on EC has something to do with it.
