Maternal & Public HealthAbortion

Planned Parenthood and Federally Qualified Health Centers

While Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, having performed 327,653 abortions in 2013,[1] federally qualified health centers (FQHCs),[2] which operate in service sites in both rural and urban locations, offer low-income populations health services similar to those provided by Planned Parenthood, but do not perform abortions.

National comparison PP v FQHC
Number of Centers/Individuals Served per Year

 

  • There are over 13 times more FQHC Service Sites (9,170) nationwide than there are Planned Parenthood centers (about 700).[3]
  • FQHCs serve 21.1 million individuals per year, nearly eight times more individuals than are served by Planned Parenthood centers (2.8 million).[4]
