Planned Parenthood aborted almost 375,000 unborn children last year, setting another record for the organization as elective abortions remain the leading cause of death for children in the United States.
In the wake of the Supreme Court’s historic overturning of Roe v. Wade with the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization decision in the summer of 2022, which fundamentally changed the abortion landscape across the nation, at least 14 states have outlawed abortions with few to no exceptions.
In the new annual report released this week, the organization documented 374,155 abortions performed last year amid receiving $670.4 million in government grants and reimbursements — an increase of about 5.8% from the previous year. According to a Life News analysis, Planned Parenthood performed 1,025 abortions daily or terminated a baby every 84 seconds.
Dr. Michael New, a self-described conservative Catholic professor and researcher, reported in the National Review that Planned Parenthood recorded the second-most abortions performed by the organization in its history, representing approximately 40 percent of abortions last year in the U.S.
“This is unsurprising,” New said.
According to the Guttmacher Institute’s estimate, just under 1 million unborn children lost their chance at life in the United States last year, with fewer than half of the abortions performed by Planned Parenthood.
New’s reaction to the staggering number seemed predictable to him and other pro-life advocates considering President Joe Biden repealed the Trump administration’s Protect Life Rule, which allowed Planned Parenthood to become eligible for more government funding through Title X grants.
Abortion data analyzed last year from the pro-life medical research group Charlotte Lozier Institute shows a breakdown of the various reasons women seek abortions, which range from rape and incest to the risk to the mother’s life or health or a fetal abnormality.

With such reasons only making up less than 5% of the abortions performed, the data concluded 95.7% of procedures were marked as “elective or unspecified reasons.”
Lila Rose, founder and president of pro-life organization Live Action, called the organization’s latest annual report “horrific.”
“Shut. Them. Down,” she said.
Planned Parenthood just released their annual report
They are killing an unprecedented number of babies, and have cornered a full 40% of the US abortion market
They kill 1,025 boys and girls every day
Shut. Them. Down.

The abortion giant’s report also noted the organization offered fewer services to women — prenatal services dropped by 29%, miscarriage care fell 5%, adoption referrals fell by 7%, and pregnancy tests fell by 3.7%.
Planned Parenthood’s latest numbers broke previous statistics reported by Life News, which said the organization aborted 354,871 unborn children in 2019.
