91% of Pregnant Women Going to Planned Parenthood Get Abortions

That new report on Planned Parenthood that I've been mentioning the last few days? (Spotlight on Planned Parenthood and The Latest Numbers Prove Again -- Planned Parenthood Is All About Abortion)

Well here's a quick review by Steven Ertelt of about its most salient points.

The new document the abortion organization posted shows Planned Parenthood did 329,445 abortions in 2010 while it provided prenatal care to only 31,098 women and referred only 841 women to adoption agencies.

The number of women receiving prenatal care dropped significantly from 2009 to 2010, as the abortion business helped 40,489 women in 2009 — meaning almost 10,000 fewer women received prenatal support from Planned Parenthood last year than the year prior, or a drop of almost 25 percent.

The number of women getting adoption referrals also declined — from a low 977 in 2009 to 841 last year, or a decline of 14 percent.

Examined another way Planned Parenthood does 391 abortions for every adoption referral it makes and almost 11 abortions for every woman it helps with prenatal care.
