As a conservative Christian who has faithfully paid my taxes year-after-after, I am greatly offended by the fact that my hard-earned tax dollars are used to fund the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. Especially since Planned Parenthood is supposed to be a non-profit organization. The government doesn’t fund many other non-profit organizations to help them survive so why do they continue to support this one.
The only thing about Planned Parenthood that makes me happy is finding out that they have closed nearly a third of their facilities. In their heyday, Planned Parenthood was operating 938 facilities, many of which were engaged in the cold-blooded murder of innocent unborn babies. According to a recent report, Planned Parenthood is down to only 624 facilities around the nation.
Jim Sedlak, Executive Director of American Life League (ALL) told OneNewsNow:
“We are happy to report that they closed 27 more facilities in 2016, and they only opened eight new ones – so a net loss of 19 Planned Parenthood facilities in 12 months. That’s the way we like to see it go.”
“They’re now down to 624 facilities across the country from a high of 938 – so they’ve lost one-third of their facilities.”
What I don’t understand is why their federal funding continues to increase while the number of their facilities is decreasing.
Around the time that Obama took office, Planned Parenthood received $363.2 million in government funding and grants. Around $70 million came from Title X funding and the remaining $293 million came from Medicaid funding which is comprised of both state and federal money.
Some states, like Texas have passed laws to stop all state funding of Planned Parenthood, but Obama’s liberal administration has fought to overturn every such state law. Supposedly, they claim that it’s illegal for states to defund Planned Parenthood when in fact I would think it’s probably illegal for the butcher company to receive any state or federal money.
Per a more recent report, Planned Parenthood received $553 million in government funding in the last fiscal year. How does anyone explain the fact that under the Obama administration it has received 65.6% more government money for operating 33.5% fewer facilities and clinics?
The same report says that although Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization, they continue to make a profit every year. In other words, they are raking in millions from the needless, senseless and unethical slaughter of human life.
In 2009, Planned Parenthood provided ‘medical’ services to about 3 million people. In the same fiscal year, they reportedly performed 332,278 murders (abortions). That means that around 1 of every 9 people receiving ‘medical’ services from Planned Parenthood sought their services to murder their unborn children.
In 2014, Planned Parenthood performed 323,999 infant murders and received $553.7 million in taxpayer dollars. That’s an average of about $1,709 of your and my tax dollars per murder (abortion).
Tax season will soon be upon us and when you fill out your federal income tax return, take a good hard look at how many of your tax dollars are being kept or sent to the federal government. Also, take a look at your state taxes as many states still provide funding to Planned Parenthood. Then realize what part of your hard-earned tax money they keep and is being used to end the life of an innocent unborn child. Instead of shedding tears over having to pay your taxes, shed some tears for the young lives that are being deprived of their constitutional right life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!
