PP abortions pass quarter-million mark annually

Life News reports on PP's recent annual report for 2004.

In the past 20 years, PP's share of US abortions rose from about 5.5% to about 20%. The actual number has skyrocketed to 255,015. In contrast, PP cared for 17,610 prenatal clients. (You can see the numbers yourself on the PPFA "Fact Sheet".) PPFA didn't release numbers on how many abortion referrals their affiliates are responsible for, nor how many prenatal care referrals. Without those numbers, we can't accurately assess to what extent the women who trust PP end up aborting versus giving birth. Does anybody know where this information can be found?
