According to its own fact sheet, Planned Parenthood performed 332,278 abortions in the United States in 2009. That same year, the Guttmacher Institute reports that the average cost for a first trimester surgical abortion at 10 weeks was $451. Chemical abortions averaged around $483. Surgical abortions at 20 weeks cost $1,500 or more.
But are the women receiving these abortions the ones paying for them? Not exactly.
