The Obama administration has made funding the Planned Parenthood abortion business a top priority during two terms and the administration has just announced another $5.6 million for the abortion corporation. The grants to various affiliates of the Planned Parenthood abortion business came via the Department of Health and Human Services.
The pro-life group Life Dynamics caught wind of the announcement and posted about it on its web site:
The TPP program is described by OAH as, “one of a growing number of federal programs that focus on providing evidence of what works, investing in new and innovative approaches, and fostering a culture of learning.”
The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) was established in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health in 2010.
Planned Parenthood is one of 81 organization to receive funding under the program to prevent teen pregnancy. Life Dynamcis provides a breakdown of which abortion affiliates received funds:
A breakdown of the $5,679,657.00 grant dollars to the abortion business is detailed below:
Under what OAH labels their Tier1A, “Capacity Building to Support Replication of Evidence- Based TPP Programs” they gave $750,000 to Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest Seattle Washington for “vulnerable youth.”
In OHA’s Tier 1B, “Replicating Evidence-Based TPP Programs to Scale in Communities with the Greatest Need ” program, three Planned Parenthood affiliates received almost $3,000,000 in grant money:
Planned Parenthood of the Heartland Des Moines, Iowa received $965,988.
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest Seattle, Washington received $999,999.
And Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho Yakima, Washington received $963,670.
In OAH’s Tier 2B, “Rigorous Evaluation of New or Innovative Approaches to Prevent Teen Pregnancy” program:
Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest Seattle, Washington received $2,000,000.
$1,000,000, was allocated for “Family-based intervention for rural youth and their parents or caregivers” and another $1,000,000 for “Clinic-based intervention for LGBTQ teens and health care providers.”
The Obama administration grants to Planned Parenthood follow on the heels of a new report showing Planned Parenthood does one-third of all abortions in the United States.
Planned Parenthood sells itself as a non-profit organization that concerns itself with women’s health, but a shocking new report indicates Planned Parenthood is little more than an abortion business. While the number of abortions it does and the percentage of its operations that are abortions is in the rise, the number of women receiving legitimate health care at Planned Parenthood is steadily declining.
“Over the last 45 years, Planned Parenthood has become the expert in making money from ending lives,” observed Americans United for Life President Charmaine Yoest. Her organization released the report today which details how the billion-dollar abortion company has increased its profits and market share, even as fewer women have abortions every year.
Yoest told LifeNews.com: “Unlike the national trend observed by the Associated Press last week, the Centers for Disease Control, and everywhere else that abortions are on the decline, at Planned Parenthood abortion sales are up – meanwhile its overall patients and other services are down. This is as a result of a move to create abortion mega-centers to mass-produce abortions at an even deadlier rate.”
The new AUL analysis documents how Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) has gobbled up the abortion market, aggressively displacing unaffiliated abortion clinics in favor of its large facilities in urban centers, so that it can increase the number of abortions done on unborn babies. Yoest says these mega-centers (abortion clinics of at least 10,000 square feet) have opened in at least 18 cities since 2004.
“Planned Parenthood’s mega-centers strategy coincides with its increasing share of the U.S. abortion market: from performing 1 in 5 abortions to 1 in 3,” Yoest said, noting that Planned Parenthood, in abandoning health care for women, has mandated that all of its affiliates do abortions. As a result, the number of abortions performed by Planned Parenthood has increased along with the addition of the mega-centers by more than 70,000 abortions annually.
In December, the abortion giant Planned Parenthood released its 2013 annual report and the new numbers indicate it did more abortions than the year before — killing 327,653 babies in abortions while taking in millions in taxpayer funds. The report indicates Planned Parenthood did 327,653 abortions in 2013, an increase over the 327,166 abortions it did in 2012.
While it remains America’s biggest abortion corporation, the “nonprofit” continued to make money — bringing in $305.4 million last year and $305.3 million this year. Planned Parenthood continued to receive over a half-billion dollars in taxpayer money, as it took in $540 million in 2012 and $528 million in 2013.
- In 2013, abortions made up 94% of Planned Parenthood’s pregnancy services.
- For every adoption referral, Planned Parenthood performed 174 abortions.
- While abortions rose, Planned Parenthood adoption referrals dropped 14% in one year, and prenatal care services dropped 4%.
- Planned Parenthood’s cancer prevention services are down 17% over one year, and contraceptive services dropped by 4%.
- During fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood received more than $528 million in taxpayer funding, or more than $1.4 million per day, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements.
- Taxpayer funding accounts for 41% of Planned Parenthood’s overall revenue.
- Planned Parenthood reported more than $127 million in excess revenue, and more than $1.4 billion in net assets.
