According to a report published by the Susan B. Anthony foundation, public records show that the Planned Parenthood organization performed a record 333,964 abortions in 2011 and received a whopping $542 million in taxpayer funding, which includes grants and Medicaid reimbursements.
Women should be allowed to run their lives as they see fit, but taxpayers should not be forced to fund the act of killing unborn babies. Over a three year period, Planned Parenthood has performed almost a million abortions, largely financed by the American taxpayer. Although Planned Parenthood claims to offer a wide range of pregnancy “services”, abortions account for 92% of its daily operations, the report cited.
Worse, Planned Parenthood has reported almost $90 million in excess revenue and over a billion in net assets. The abortion business sure is lucrative.
Why, then, are Americans forced to pay for abortions? Regardless of profit or loss, funneling tax dollars to abortion clinics amounts to an abomination of freedom and an entirely unjustified use of tax revenue. Raise your hand if you believe our brave patriots of yesteryear fought for independence 237 years ago so our government can spend hundreds of millions of dollars funding abortions.
My hand is not raised.
