A Not-So-Tiny Number

Pregnant woman3%

Seems like a tiny number, doesn’t it? Think about it, if someone offered you 3% of their French silk pie, you wouldn’t feel too grateful. I know I wouldn’t.

So, when Planned Parenthood (the United States’ largest abortion provider) announced that once again abortion accounted for only 3% of their service pie (see page 14 of their annual report–link below), they assumed we’d be pleased with that minuscule number.

Well, let’s look at that number a little more closely …

According to Planned Parenthood’s 2012-2013 Annual Report, they performed 327,166 abortion procedures during their fiscal year. (see page 15).

So that means Planned Parenthood alone performed …

27,263.83 abortions per month

6,291.65 abortions per week

896.35 abortions per day

37.35 abortions per hour

0.62 abortions per minute


1 abortion every 96.77 seconds.

1 unduplicable life intentionally taken every 96.77 seconds

Just 3% …

Guess that number isn’t so small after all.
