Taxpayers Should Not Fund Planned Parenthood
In February 2011, an investigation by Live Action unveiled seven different Planned Parenthood clinics in four different states willing to aid and abet the sex trafficking and exploitation of girls as young as 14 years old.
Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the nation. From 2008-2009, Planned Parenthood received over $360 million in taxpayer funding, despite the fact that they have reported over $63 million in profits. Planned Parenthood performed over 650,000 abortions in the two year period, 2008-09.
According to their own data from 2009, Planned Parenthood only provided 977 adoption referrals and 7,021 prenatal services. This is a combined total of services from all their affiliates nationwide.
The evidence – available in its complete form at www.liveaction.org – reveals that Planned Parenthood is not a safe place for young girls and women. From turning a blind eye to sex trafficking to proactively offering ways to skirt the law, Planned Parenthood is an endemically corrupt organization.
There are nearly 7,000 Federally Qualified Health Centers around the country that provide affordable and more comprehensive health care for children and adults. It is time to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.
Taxpayers should not fund Planned Parenthood.
