A drop in state and federal funding is forcing Planned Parenthood to shut down dozens of locations.
The demise of Planned Parenthood across the U.S. as the nation’s largest provider of abortion services is losing government subsidies.
According to a report from the American Life League or ALL, Planned Parenthood closed 32 of its facilities in 2017 due to the declining profitability of its operations.
This, despite a barrage of pro-choice mainstream media propaganda, as well as support from democrat machine politics, mostly in blue states.
The ALL found the number of Planned Parenthood facilities has dropped from its record highest of 938 back in 1995 to 597 in 2017.
Roughly 60% of these facilities provide medical or surgical abortions; in most states in the absence of proper surgical equipment and personnel training.
Planned Parenthood is struggling with financial difficulties, after many states cut their subsidies to abortion facilities during the first year of the Trump Presidency.
Most recently, an abortion facility in Bettendorf, Iowa closed after state lawmakers diverted subsidy funds toward community health centers instead.
Additionally, Planned Parenthood facilities closed in New Mexico, Wyoming, North Dakota, and Colorado throughout 2017, after being de-subsidized.
According to a separate report from a pro-life entity Susan B. Anthony list, Planned Parenthood is still receiving up to $1 billion annually in government subsidies.
The Abortion Enterprise became a successful commercial model during the Clinton presidency back in the 1990’s due to high-profile lobbying.
Subsequently, Planned Parenthood enjoyed legislative support from Democrat party lawmakers on both state and federal level, as well as heavy promotion in the mainstream media.
However, abortion providers are now facing a decline as women choose other options, which include community health centers.
Planned Parenthood has also suffered significant damage to its reputation recently, as it faces allegations of Medicaid fraud, a child sex abuse cover up, as well as accusations of selling aborted fetuses from its clinics.
This drew attention of the Justice Department, which launched an official probe into Planned Parenthood’s alleged for profit sales of human body parts.
The decline of Planned Parenthood reveals the economic unsustainability of leftist endeavors thriving off government subsidies, but crumbling when fiscal accommodation is removed.
