Tax-funded abortions top 200 per week at San Jose-based Planned Parenthood

.- Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, based in San Jose, performed 22,685 abortions over two years — 2005 and 2006 — and most of these procedures were taxpayer-funded, according to a report published in the California Catholic Daily.

The Catholic newspaper based its article on the abortion agency’s annual reports, which are posted on its website.

According to the annual report, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte took in $55.5 million in 2005. Of this amount, 81 percent came from government agencies, such as the Department of Health Services’ Family Planning Access Care and Treatment program, the Medicaid program, and other government grants and contracts, all of which are funded by taxpayers.

In 2006, the organization took in $58.2 million, with the same percentage as the previous year coming from government funding. Of the $58.2 million, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, which is listed as a nonprofit organization, spent $56.1 million and reported an end-of-year surplus of more than $2 million.
