(THEHILL) — The nation’s largest abortion provider topped $1 billion in total net assets in 2009-2010, its first time reaching that mark, according to Planned Parenthood’s latest annual report.

The report, released Friday, is sure to rekindle Republican lawmakers’ efforts to defund the organization in 2012. Five of the GOP presidential candidates have also signed a pledge to defund Planned Parenthood.

Almost half of the group’s annual revenue — 46 percent — comes from taxpayers in the form of grants, contracts and Medicaid payments, according to an analysis by the anti-abortion group Susan B. Anthony List.

    Everywhere one looks, the young are leaving the various, (‘intolerant’), motheisims, either for a more tolerant religious-belief or NO religion…

    If I receive a winning lotto or other big-buck item this-or-any year, Planned Parenthood, (along with soup kitchens, homeless shelters and the anti-war-movement), which has done so much to reduce morbidity & mortality, will most definitely have a ‘chunk-o-change’ headed it’s way!
    How’s that effort to confirm ‘Ch. Darwin’ coming along?
    The more the ‘Failed_Culture_Warriors’ rant, the more the young say “Later_for_you” to their elders, particularly their ‘religious’ elders…
    Passive attrition-related-extinction looms, (like Titanic’s_Iceberg), for organized_monotheism… unless it foregoes the many anti-social theologies currently advocated & joins the rest-of-us in 2012!
