Taxpayers Fund 1/3 of Planned Parenthood's Budget

To the 53% of Americans who still pay federal income tax:
Do you know that your tax dollars fund as much as one-third of the budget of the abortion mill with the Orwellian name of “Planned Parenthood”? (What sort of “parent” kills her/his own child?)
The Catholic News Agency reports on July 17, 2011, that a new in-depth report on Planned Parenthood (PP) by the pro-life group, Americans United for Life, finds that $363 million – one-third of PP’s annual budget  – comes from the American taxpayer.
Americans United for Life’s report, “The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood,” is the result of their legal team researching more than 20 years of PP records, law enforcement reports, and other materials. The $363 million figure is by Planned Parenthood’s own accounting.
At a July 14 press conference in Washington, D.C., hosted by Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) and Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-Ill.), President of Americans United for Life Dr. Charmaine Yoest said, “While Congress is discussing going deeper in debt and raising the debt ceiling … our government is quietly subsidizing the world’s largest abortion provider with $1 million a day.
Here are some of the study’s findings:

  • Government taxpayers’ funding of Planned Parenthood has doubled since 1998 – as well as the number of abortions performed.
  • PP has committed numerous financial malpractices and human rights abuses over the last two decades, including failure to report criminal child sexual abuse, failure to comply with parental involvement laws, and willingness to refer to substandard clinics.
  • Planned Parenthood has been documented as assisting people engaged in prostitution and/or sex trafficking, and has “dangerously” misused the abortion drug RU-486.
  • PP has provided inaccurate and misleading information to women regarding fetal development, abortion’s health risks, and to patients on emergency contraception, including the pill “ella”.
  • PP committed Medicaid fraud — in California, New York, New Jersey and Washington state – where PP affiliates have been exposed for fraudulent overbilling practices.

Yoest calls for an investigation and Congressional hearings into Planned Parenthood and its systematic abuse of federal funding: “American taxpayers are being forced to directly support this abortion-saturated organization which is fraught with fraud and misuse of government monies.”

I briefly participated in a group that opposed abortion and wanted to boycott every company that donated to PP. They wanted a list of those companies. I did my homework, at the PP site, and discovered that all the private companies combined was only 28% of the funding to PP, while government funding equaled 33%. How could I complain about any company, when my own taxes were involved. What was I going to do? Boycott my government? Yea, good luck with that.

I was surprised that only 1/3 of PP’s funding came from government sources. I don’t have a problem with the educational aspects of PP, but I personally find abortion horrifying except in cases of rape, incest, or if the pregnancy could risk the mother’s life.

Good point about the child being innocent, it didn’t choose the circumstances under which it was conceived. The potential psychological damage to the mother needs also to be considered, carrying a child to term that was conceived as a result of rape would have be very difficult.

Think of the hideous death and suffering of helpless, adorable little Caylee Anthony. Both conservatives and progressives were glued to that case for months, all of us equally convinced of the mother, Casey Anthony’s guilt.
What divides the conservatives from the progressives and femi-nazis?
If Casey Anthony had walked into Planned Parenthood for a late term abortion the day before Caylee’s birth, the progressives and women’s libbers would have defended and celebrated Casey’s “right to choose” to hideously end the life of helpless, adorable little Caylee Anthony.
