UK Planned Parenthood: 1 adoption for every 2,235 abortions

Planned Parenthood tries to market and brand themselves as a women’s health organization, but the stats reveal that it facilitates very few adoptions compared with the number of abortions it does when pregnant women visit for assistance.

Peter Saunders, the CEO of the Christian Medical Fellowship, a UK-based organization with 4,500 UK doctors and 1,000 medical students as members, and the director of the anti-euthanasia group Care Not Killing Alliance, wanted to know the abortion versus adoption ratio.

The survey found a shocking comparison.

“All of which made me wonder what the comparative figures are like in the UK,” he writes on his blog. “Well in 2009 there were 203,444 abortions on UK residents and just 91 adoptions involving babies under one year.”

“That’s a ratio of 2,235 abortions performed for every baby adopted,” he explained. “Or in other words, a ratio almost seven times worse than even the US – which is perhaps why Britain’s new adoption czar says it might be a good idea for women with unwanted pregnancies to consider giving their babies up for adoption.”

The abortion-adoption comparison in the United States is enough to prompt many pro-life advocates to push for revoking taxpayer funding for the abortion business.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America posted on its website what it calls its service numbers for 2009. This document, dated February 2011, shows Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide did 332,278 surgical abortions or abortions using the dangerous RU 486 abortion during in 2009.

The document the abortion organization posted shows Planned Parenthood provided prenatal services to merely 7,021 women and referred only 977 women for adoption services. These numbers were a 25 percent drop in prenatal care clients and a whopping 59 percent decline in adoption referrals from the 2,405 adoption referrals in 2008. The abortion business helped only 9,433 prenatal clients in 2008, down substantially from the 11,000 women it provided prenatal care to in 2007 — showing health care given to pregnant woman has fallen substantially over the years.

As a result, 97.6 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood are sold abortions while less than 2.4 percent of pregnant women received non-abortion services including adoption and prenatal care. That’s up from 96.5 percent of pregnant women going to Planned Parenthood getting abortions in 2008.
