The 2005-2006 fiscal year was Planned Parenthood’s most successful since the organization’s beginnings, despite a decrease in private donations and other sources of income.
A primary reason for the group’s banner year was government grants. Totaling over $305 million USD, the grants are causing anti-abortion groups to take notice. Members of these organizations feel their tax dollars are being wrongfully spent on procedures and programs they adamantly oppose.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America reported an annual profit of $55.8 million for 2005-2006, with a record 264,943 abortions performed—9,000 more than the previous year.
In addition, the organization reported it distributed 1,245,506 emergency contraception kits, which include the controversial “morning after pill,” Plan-B.
