“This 2021 report provides further evidence that Planned Parenthood continues to prioritize abortion,” pro-life social scientist and Catholic University of America professor Michael New wrote in his analysis at National Review. “Indeed, Planned Parenthood performed a record 383,460 abortions in 2021. That represents approximately 41 percent of the abortions performed in the United States.”
“To put this violence into perspective, this is equivalent to FIVE Super Bowl stadiums,” the March for Life noted.
According to Planned Parenthood’s 2021 Annual Report, our nation’s largest abortion provider ended the lives of 383,460 unborn children last year.

The 2021 report shows “abortions performed by Planned Parenthood increased by 8.5 percent over 2020,” according to New’s analysis. “At the same time, cancer screenings fell by over 30 percent, well-woman tests fell by 39 percent, STI tests fell by 17.4 percent, and pregnancy tests fell by over 14 percent.”
Planned Parenthood thinks releasing their annual report on a Friday night will camouflage the rising body count, but almost 383,460 infants died from their ‘care’ over the last year as they profited in the billions. If your healthcare kills people, you’re doing it wrong.

Pro-life groups criticized Planned Parenthood’s latest numbers and argued it showed the organization continues to profit from abortions.
“While many people suffered during COVID, Planned Parenthood prospered,” Students for Life of America president Kristan Hawkins said. “The nation’s largest abortion vendor ended more lives than ever before, and the largest source of their income was the American taxpayer.”
The abortion corporation brought in $15 million more from taxpayers than the year prior.
“Thirty-seven percent of its income represented taxpayer dollars in the form of government reimbursements and grants,” American Life League’s Rita Diller wrote in her analysis. “At the end of the year, Planned Parenthood showed a profit (income minus expense) of $133.7 million dollars.”
“Planned Parenthood seeks to impose abortion and sexual license worldwide and seizes every opportunity to do so,” Diller wrote. “Its income continues to grow as its abortion business flourishes and its customer base shrinks. This annual report is yet another wake-up call. It is time to STOP Planned Parenthood.”
A Family Research Council analyst shared similar sentiments.
“Planned Parenthood’s latest report continues to confirm what their mission is about: death and taxpayer funding,” Connor Semelsberger, director of federal affairs, told the Washington Stand.
The abortion giant promised to keep fighting for abortion in the wake of the reversal of Roe v. Wade.
Planned Parenthood’s new annual report shows:
Clients ⬇️ 10%
Abortion ⬆️ 8% (383,460 abortions)
% of US abortions ⬆️ to 41%
Taxpayer $$ ⬆️ 2.5% ($663,400,000)
Total net assets:
$2,500,000,000 (2.5 billion)
Shut them down now!

“Who are we going to be,” an intro letter to the report from President and CEO Alexis Johnson and chairwoman Kulleni Gebreyes asked. “This is the question we’ve been asking ourselves, in the final months of nationwide abortion rights under Roe v. Wade.”
“And the answer to that question comes from Planned Parenthood’s mission of providing care [sic] and fighting for everyone’s right to access it, no matter what. The mission doesn’t change,” the letter stated.
LifeSiteNews has a comprehensive, regularly updated map of state-by-state abortion laws. Indiana became the most recent state to restrict abortion, passing a law which is expected to prevent 95 percent of abortions. A federal judge also ruled on August 17 that North Carolina can enforce its ban on abortions at 20 weeks.
