Planned Parenthood Nearly Doubles Medication Abortion Sites
Marie Hahnenberg [researcher, director of ALL Map Room Project]:
“Planned Parenthood has a total of 855 sites across the country. We now know that 287 are surgical and medical abortion centers. That marks an increase of 55 abortion locations over the previous year.”
It is noteworthy that PP has nearly doubled the number of medication abortion-only sites that distribute the abortion drugs mifepristone (RU 486, mifeprex) and methotrexate.
The new survey shows 108 locations offer medication abortions, an increase of 48 over the previous survey.
Since the Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton cases decriminalized abortion in 1973, there have been an estimated 4,000,000 babies killed at Planned Parenthood facilities alone and the number continues to rise.
