How many abortions does Planned Parenthood perform each year?

In 2017, Planned Parenthood performed 345,672 abortions, or approximately 40% of all abortions, making them the largest abortion chain in the United States. Even as the overall national abortion rate has declined over the past two decades, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers have increased substantially during this time period.
