Planned Parenthood: 2009 Record Year - 332,278 Abortions Performed

February 23, 2011 - San Francisco, CA - - With the economy reeling, Planned Parenthood, continues to get fat on the anguish of women.

As demonstrated by the group's own figures, it performed 332,278 abortions during 2009. [source,]

Little known by the public, the groups receives massive federal funding.

"Planned Parenthood received $363.2 million in government grants and contracts during its 2008-2009 fiscal year, according to the organization's annual report. That was up from $349.6 million in FY2007-08. [source,]

Though the number of "procedures," performed may constitute a shocking statistic to pro-life Americans, it represents only part of the story, the other being the demonstrated link between abortion and cancer that may raise a woman's chance of contracting the disease by a factor of 40%.

"An April 2009 study co-authored by a researcher who has previously denied an abortion-breast cancer link shows a statistically significant increase in breast cancer risk among women who have had abortions or who use oral contraceptives. The study by researchers including Jessica Dolle of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research contained a table reporting a statistically significant 40 percent risk increase for women who have had abortions. According to the Coalition on Abortion/Breast Cancer (CABC), the study listed abortion as among "known and suspected risk factors." [source,]

The GOP House has recently passed legislation to defund the organization, which masquerades as a health provider, "It is a major development in Washington, The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to completely de-fund Planned Parenthood. Momentum in the fight to strip the organization's funding came after an activist group went into a local clinic and captured allegedly damning video." [source,]

Here are a few of the videos of the type to which the previous article refers, the first a short history regarding the organization's founder Margaret Sanger - a racist bigot and proponent of Hitler style eugenics, the second showing the results of an undercover investigation organized by a pro-life UCLA student.
