Planned Parenthood reported a record number of abortions in 2012 as America's largest abortion provider performed a record 333,964 abortions by year's end which pushed Planned Parenthood's three year total to 995,687 abortions according to its annual report.
It is estimated that since Roe-Wade became the law of the land in the early 1970s, over 55 million abortions have been performed in the United States.
Although President Barack Obama signed an executive order in 2010 promising not to fund abortions with federal tax dollars, Planned Parenthood reported a record $542 million dollars in taxpayer funding.http://www.cnn.com/2010/POLITICS/03/24/obama.abortion/index.html
The Susan B. Anthony List notes that the taxpayer funding represents 45% of Planned Parenthood's annual funding. Meanwhile contraceptive services have dropped 12% while cancer sceening and prevention services dropped a whopping 29%.
According to SBA President Marjorie Dannenfelser, the all time high in government subsidies has greatly contributed to the record number of lives lost to abortion.
"Destroying nearly 1 million children in three years is not healthcare and does not reflect the concern for vulnerable women and girls," Dannenfelser reported in an interview with the Christian Broadcast Network (CBN).

Some of the early feminists as Susan B.Anthony were decidedly pro-life according to the same Times article.
