    I’ve been getting a lot of emails over the last week regarding a Planned Parenthood statistic that Students for Life of America has been using in emails and on our website. So, this morning I’m writing about it to address the facts and misinformation about there.

    This is a Fact: Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider and 96% of its services for pregnant women are abortions.

    For those who may try to rebut this, here is the documentation you need:

    Looking at a 2010 fact sheet from their own website, Planned Parenthood provided 324, 008 abortion services, 2,405 adoption referrals, and 9,433 prenatal services in 2008. When calculated, abortion services accounted for 96% of the services provided to pregnant women.

    Here is the math for those who still doubt:

    2,405 +9,433 = 11,838 services to pregnant women which are not abortions

    11,838 + 324,008 = 335,846 total services to pregnant women

    (11,838 / 335,846) * 100% = 3.5% of services provided to pregnant women are not abortions

    (324,008 / 335,846) = 96.5% of services provided to pregnant women are abortions

    While this is an astounding number, the actual number of abortions that Planned Parenthood provides may actually be more than that!
