According to its latest annual report, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America received $487.4 million in tax dollars over a 12-month period and performed 329,455 abortions, CNSNews.com reports. When compared with previous annual reports, this one -- which covers the period from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010 -- shows an almost steady increase in the number of abortions performed at its clinics. It also shows a continued decline in the number of adoption referrals made by the organization -- in fiscal year 2010, only 841 adoption referrals were reported. "With over a billion in net assets and a business model centered on abortion and government subsidies, it is time for Planned Parenthood to end its reliance on taxpayer dollars," said Marjorie Dannenfelser, president of pro-life lobbying organization The Susan B. Anthony List.
