Planned Parenthood Taxpayer Funding…
PLANNED PARENTHOOD TAXPAYER FUNDING. In 2003, the federal Government Accounting Office produced a report on federal money going to Planned Parenthood: http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d03527r.pdf.
It shows a total of $162 million going to Planned Parenthood in 2001. Of that amount, it documents that:
$60.9 million was from Title XIX – through the Medicaid Waiver program
$58.7 million was from Title X, HHS Act.
$19.0 million was from Social Services Block Grants
$ 6.0 million from Child and Maternal Health Services Block Grants
$17.4 million from other federal programs
Planned Parenthood reported, in its annual report (for July 1, 2001 to June 30, 2002), receiving $240 million in government money. Thus, the federal portion accounted for about 70 percent of the total; state and local funds made up the rest.
Title X money accounts for about 24 percent of PP's total government income. The biggest single source of PP government money is Medicaid Waiver programs which gave Planned Parenthood $60.9 million in 2001.
In its latest annual report (http://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/PPFA/report-05.pdf), Planned Parenthood says it received $272.7 million in total government money. Although it did not break down the details, from the previous data we estimate that about $190 million is from federal sources and the remaining $83 million is from state and local governments (grossed $882 Million).

In 2003, PP performed 244,000 abortions; in 2004, 255,000.
PP performs 20%-21% of all U.S. abortions (25 years ago, PP did 5 ½%). PP operates 850 facilities nationwide: 172 do surgical abortions, 57 more do chemical abortions (RU486); 595 others distribute Plan B.
PP also buys a monthly supply of birth control pills for $1.50, then turns a hefty profit by selling it to clients at $16.00-$25.00.
