Another video’s been released, further fueling the current controversy about Margaret Sanger’s organization, Planned Parenthood. I’ve not weighed in on this latest, but I do recall the angst from the Code Pinko crowd when I voted to defund Planned Parenthood during my time in Congress.
There are many government clinics that provide women’s health services. Planned Parenthood is in business for one reason —and they’re making their business very lucrative. As reported by CNSNews:
Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, received $528.4 million in taxpayer funding, according to its 2013-2014 annual report, which runs from July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014.
The report shows that Planned Parenthood received $528.4 million in “government health services grants and reimbursements” during a one-year period, the latest figures available.
That means it received an average of $1,447,671 in taxpayer funds per day and an average of $60,320 every hour.
We must begin to ask ourselves if we now occupy such a degraded state of existence that anything’s acceptable — or can be excused and dismissed. I’ve shared countless times that since Roe v. Wade, estimates are that 16 million black babies have been aborted. And I refuse to accept the false narrative that this is a better fate. Why are so many going overseas to adopt babies when we have little American children who need loving homes? Planned Parenthood and the progressive left embraces the aspect of personal irresponsibility in order to advance the notion that killing babies is a necessity of our modern existence.
We no longer live in a time without medical alternatives to becoming pregnant. The fact that we’re using killing babies as a means of birth control is unconscionable. And the recent episode involving Planned Parenthood goes beyond infanticide; it’s reflective of the horrors of Dr. Kermit Gosnell. You know, the abortion doctor that the left didn’t want to talk about.
Planned Parenthood’s supposed to be a not-for-profit organization, yet it’s turning a profit — to the tune of nearly $1B. Why does this organization deserve American taxpayer dollars? Show me in the U.S. Constitution where one of the responsibilities of Congress is to appropriate funds to the killing of babies?
How many soldiers would $528.4M keep from being cut from our active duty Army? How much road infrastructure could be repaired? How many ICE agents could be hired to ensure criminal illegal immigrants could be properly tracked and deported?
Not a single taxpayer dime should be going to Planned Parenthood. I’m quite sure there are enough liberal progressive benefactors — George Soros comes to mind — who’d be more than willing to fund this organization and their culture of death. There’s just not much to say about this other than it is unbelievable.
I’m glad that I voted to defund Planned Parenthood.
