Annual abortion data shows growth in Planned Parenthood’s share

The annual report on abortions in Minnesota released June 30 by the Minnesota Department of Health shows 9,953 abortions were performed in 2016, the third lowest number since the state began recording the data in 1975.

According to Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life, the number also shows a decline of 87 percent in abortions performed on minors since its peak in 1980. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood, the largest of the six abortion providers in the state, increased its number of abortions performed by 44 percent from 2012 to 2016, more than doubling its abortions since 2001, according to MCCL.

“This data confirms once again that Planned Parenthood means abortion,” said MCCL Executive Director Scott Fischbach in a June 30 statement. “As an organization that takes credit for the overall decline in abortions, Planned Parenthood has lost all credibility. Its clear goal is to perform as many abortions as possible, and it does so year after year.”
