By Life Site News. Planned Parenthood’s estimated abortion revenue totaled more than half (52%) of the organization’s non-government health services revenue, reaching nearly $200 million ($190.3) for the second year in a row, according to an analysis conducted by Live Action News.
The stunning numbers confirm what Planned Parenthood’s new president Dr. Leana Wen claimed when she identified abortion as Planned Parenthood’s “core mission.” As Live Action News previously documented, in 2017, although Planned Parenthood claimed abortion made up just 3.4 percent of its services, the abortion vendor was able to increase abortions nearly four percent (3.54%), from 321,384 in 2016 to 332,757 in 2017, the highest number committed by the corporation since 2011.
To calculate the latest data, Live Action News used the same methodology utilized in 2016: examining revenue and median abortion costs and comparing them against reported abortion totals in Planned Parenthood’s 2017–2018 annual report, in which the organization reported committing 332,757 abortions. . .
If we divide Planned Parenthood’s estimated abortion revenue ($190,274,370) by the total non-government health center revenue of $365,700,000, we find that abortion makes up 52 percent of Planned Parenthood’s non-government health services revenue. . .
However, even if we include the $563.8 million in government dollars with the $365.7 ($929,500,000 million), abortion revenue can be estimated at 20.5 percent of all Planned Parenthood’s health services revenue.

Missouri’s Last Abortion Clinic to Temporarily Stay Open in Planned Parenthood Case
By NBC News. A judge on Friday temporarily blocked Missouri from taking action that would have made the state the first in the U.S. since Roe v. Wade to not have a single abortion clinic.
Planned Parenthood, which now operates the only clinic in Missouri performing abortions, won a temporary restraining order from circuit court Judge Michael F. Stelzer. The clinic will stay open till at least Tuesday when there will be a hearing at 9 a.m. to consider a preliminary injunction.
Without Friday’s court action, the St. Louis clinic’s license for providing abortions would have expired at midnight.
Judge Stelzer was careful to say his order took no sides in the ongoing dispute, but only found that a further hearing was warranted. (Read more from “Missouri’s Last Abortion Clinic to Temporarily Stay Open in Planned Parenthood Case” HERE)
