Seek out Planned Parenthood in your area and they can help you further.

Some of the clinics do, not all.

For 2011-2012: 333964 abortions were performed.

They write in their annual report that you find on their home page, that for 2011-2012 they performed 333,964 abortions.See related link for a summary of all services provided by planned parenthood.

Contact your local Planned Parenthood office to find out about local funding to pay for mammograms.Planned Parenthood doesn't do mammograms, and generally does not PAY for any medical procedures. PP can arrange abortions or counsel you on contraceptives, but even then, their services are generally not free.

No. If you need to find a place that does, you can go to They list all the clinics in the country that performs abortions and you can find one near you.

Yes. Not so strange since they are both about helping children, born and unborn. Planned Parenthood does so much more then abortions but that seems to be the only thing people focus on.

There are various programs at different Planned Parenthood affiliates in different locations to help pay for abortion. Contact your local office for information specific to your state and location.

Different Planned Parenthood offices offer abortion to different gestational ages, depending on state and federal laws and local practices. Contact you local office for information specific to your location.

Abortions are not risk free. Any medical procedure carries risks. Early abortions are very minor procedures and the risks are minor ones. If you go to Planned Parenthood they can go over the risks involved with you.

None. By law, the federal funding PPL gets can not be used for abortions. It's been like that since the 70's.

No they don't. If you are referring to them supporting Planned Parenthood it's because they serve breast cancer patients. Only a small % of PPL service are abortions. About 1% of all they do.

The budget of Planned Parenthood is 1,040,000,000 dollars.

Babies are never killed in abortions, only embryos and fetuses.There are 2 different types of abortion and they are medical and surgical. You can read all about it on the Planned Parenthood website in the links below.

One can find out information on the cost of abortions by visiting their doctor. One could also visit Planned Parenthood if there is one in your area for advice.

Basically, Planned Parenthood provides abortions and birth control as well as serving as a general women's health clinic, while Birthright doesn't provide abortions or birth control, and has a focus of promoting alternatives to abortion Planned Parenthood is involved in lobbying for birth control, abortion rights, and health care funding, while Birthright and other centers don't do much of that. In terms of funding, I'm not sure, but I think Birthright is funded entirely by donations, while Planned Parenthood is funded mainly by donations, but about 1/3 of their funding comes from federal grants. I think that answers most of your questions

Republicans are generally opposed to planned parenthood, and democrats for it

To provide birth control so fewer women would die of abortions and so they could control how many children they had.

planned parenthood sued the Pennsylvania law.

There are 850 planned parenthood locations in the U.S.

Most Planned Parenthood patients are women in their 20s.

Local means the Planned Parenthood clinic in your neighborhood or closest to you.

Surgical abortions are usually only allowed in hospitals acc to state laws. But all PPL are different and not all perform abortions but I don't think they do it.You really need to call the clinic you are going to and ask.

1,2 million women and teens have abortions in the US every year in different clinics and hospitals. Some PPL clinics perform abortions and others refer to a doctor who can. How many they perform they will not reveal. Out of the clinics that performed abortions 3% of everything they did was abortions. But they did help prevent about 621,000 unintended pregnancies.
