A newly-released report by the Planned Parenthood Federation of America shows that the organization performed over 300,000 abortions in 2012-the latest figures on record.

According to the report, 327,166 abortions were performed during the 2012-2013 fiscal year, down from 333,964 in 2011. The decrease of 6,800 abortions tallies to a two percent drop from the previous year, but prenatal care services also dropped 31.9 percent, a significant decline in care for pregnant mothers.

Planned Parenthood cites that there were 2,197 adoption referrals during the period, equating to 149 abortions for every one referral.

Like 2011, Planned Parenthood's largest focus was sexually transmitted diseases (STD's), as it tested and/or treated over 4 million people for sexual ailments, which included over 697,00 HIV tests, up by 17,000 from the previous year. There were over 3 million sexually transmitted infection tests provided alone.
