Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, performed 327,653 abortions in one year, according to the latest data published in its 2013-2014 report.
From Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013, Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions. Over the course of those 365 days (or 8,760 hours), that averages out to 898 abortions per day and 37 abortions per hour.
Planned Parenthood has come under increased scrutiny recently after a video surfaced showing its senior director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, discussing the harvesting of baby body parts.
Planned Parenthood spokesman Eric Ferrero defended the practice, saying “we help patients who want to donate tissue for scientific research, and we do this just like every other high-quality health care provider does – with full, appropriate consent from patients and under the highest ethical and legal standards.
