Since the historic Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal throughout the United States, abortion megastar Planned Parenthood has raked in a cool $8 billion in taxpayer dollars funneled through federal, state and local governments.

Eight. BILLION.

According to records provided by the American Life League (ALL), a pro-life advocacy group that has tracked Planned Parenthood’s comings and goings for decades, Planned Parenthood has collected the following amounts each year since 1973:

Year Total Gov. Funding
1973 $26,342,520
1974 $30,445,300
1975 ?
1976 $48,000,000
1977 $50,800,000
1978 $58,500,000
1979 $69,700,000
1980 $71,200,000
1981 $85,200,000
1982 $94,300,000
1983 $95,000,000
1984 $91,000,000
1985 $95,200,000
1986 $93,900,000
1987 $97,700,000
1988 $106,500,000
1989 $118,600,000
1990 $126,500,000
1991 $124,000,000
1992 $145,000,000
1993 $78,900,000
1994 $158,800,000
1995 $163,100,000
1996 $171,900,000
1997 $177,500,000
1998 $165,000,000
1999 $176,500,000
2000 $187,300,000
2001 $202,700,000
2002 $240,900,000
2003 $254,400,000
2004 $265,200,000
2005 $272,700,000
2006 $305,300,000
2007 $336,700,000
2008 $349,600,000
2009 $363,200,000
2010 $487,400,000
2011 $538,500,000
2012 $542,400,000
2013 $540,600,000
2014 $528,400,000
Total $8,134,887,820
Note: The 1973 figure is significantly lower than surrounding years due to Planned Parenthood's switch from a calendar fiscal year to a July-June system.

Altogether, this equals $8,134,887,820 -- or a little over $8.1 billion. If you assume Planned Parenthood received about $36,000 in 1975, which is the average of what they got in 1974 and 1976, the total figure is actually closer to $8.2 billion.

Here's a different perspective. Since 1973, Planned Parenthood has received roughly the same amount of money as the Gross Domestic Product of the entirety of St. Cloud, MN, in 2013. In fact, $8.2 billion is more than the GDP of a lot of U.S. cities, which you can check out here.

The Media Research Center filled in a few gaps in ALL’s records by tracking down Planned Parenthood’s annual reports for several missing years. In our research, the only funding figure we weren’t able to locate was from 1975. We asked Planned Parenthood for the missing record -- by email, phone and in person -- but they never responded.

Planned Parenthood’s handy annual reports also show the taxpayer-subsidized organization has performed more than 6.6 million surgical abortions since 1973.
