Jim Sedlak: "Every week, Planned Parenthood kills twice as many innocent human beings as died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (1 April 2008) - “Planned Parenthood has just released its latest annual report and it must be very proud,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of American Life League.
“In the report,” Sedlak continued, “Planned Parenthood documents that it killed 289,750 innocent human beings in 2006. This is a 9.4 percent increase over its 2005 killing numbers. It is the highest year-to-year increase in Planned Parenthood’s abortion business since 1996 and the third highest in its history.
“Planned Parenthood now kills 5,572 innocent human beings every week. This means that, every week, Planned Parenthood kills twice as many innocent human beings as died in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
“This year’s death toll brings the total number of babies who have died at Planned Parenthood facilities to 4,358,499,” Sedlak concluded. “One out of every four abortions committed in the United States now occurs at a Planned Parenthood killing center. It is time for Americans to rise up against this organization and demand that it be shut down.”
American Life League was co-founded in 1979 by Judie Brown. It is the largest grassroots Catholic pro-life organization in the United States and is committed to the protection of all innocent human beings from the moment of creation to death.
