Planned Parenthood update

January 25, 2019

America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, gets over half a billion dollars a year in our tax money from Washington.  Despite Republican promises that if they were in charge of Congress, that would be cut off, PP’s federal funding was actually increased by over $200,000 last year.  Planned Parenthood and its defenders insist that none of this federal money is used to support abortion, and that if it were cut off, it would deal a devastating blow to providing women with crucial “health services.”

Okay, I have to ask: like what?  PP’s latest annual report is out, and it shows that once again, the number of abortions performed in its clinics is up (332,757, the largest number since 2011-2012), while its other health services are sharply down.  For instance, the number of breast exams and pap tests fell from 617,677 to 570,444 since last year.  And don’t even ask for a mammogram; their clinics don’t have the machines and will send you somewhere else.

And of course, the number of adoption referrals plummeted from an already low 3,889 to just 2,831 (again, compared to 332,757 abortions.  That’s 117 abortions for every adoption referral. Yet they deny being an abortion mill.)

Inquiring minds want to know: if PP is getting more of our tax money than ever…and performing fewer non-abortion services, but more abortions…yet our money isn’t going to support abortions…then where the heck is it going?  Wherever it’s going, it seems to me that it could be going someplace where it could be spent a lot more effectively, like to clinics that actually do provide crucial women’s health services.

    Please, Mr. President, after you build the wall, please cut off PPH from any taxpayer funding. Instead ensure women's health issues are assured thru discounted or free breast screening, educating women how to Be Best in healthy eating on limited budget, how to shop on limited budget, parenting classes, making a budget, additional resources any woman could use/qualify for, including a path to get off welfare. "Check-ups" with their caseworker to help keep them on track and put them back on track when necessary. Learn English. Help them pass their citizenship requirements. Celebrate their successes and assist with what challenges they still face.

    Americans should rise up against this. Why go they need tax dollars for anything when the made over 250 million last year? Let’s not even touch on the fact that it’s murder!

    It seems to me that any organization that receives tax payer funds should not be allowed to contribute to political parties and campaigns.

    How about this. Could it be that a large amount of the money goes to politicians who will do their bidding by contributing to their campaigns.

    I tried to find where the government includes Planned Parenthood in the budget, but can't locate it. Can someone help? The tune of over $500 million dollars a year is ridiculous for what they do.

    "A Stench in the nostrils of God " are the blighted positioning of these so-called Planned Parenthood buildings throughout our cities. I often jog by one and am reminded of the concentration camps, some ironically surrounded by seemingly unknowing German citizens, in their beautiful neighborhoods! One liberating Allied General rounded-up these "citizens" and forced them to witness the results of the horror that had been happened within these camps. Perhaps our citizens would "Wake Up" if forced to do the same!

    Thank you for this report! It is sickening to learn that Planned Parenthood continues to build their deception that abortions are a good choice for women. The moral decay of many of the leaders of our country are also contributing to their power. With all of the medical information we now have Why don't they declare it murder? It is equally sickening that my tax dollars are supporting this horrific practice. Why don't they become a charitable organization only so that only those who want to contribute will do so?

    "Despite Republican promises that if they were in charge of Congress, that would be cut off, PP’s federal funding was actually increased by over $200,000 last year"

    How do you know when a politician is lying? It's lips are moving. How many times have we heard from the rinos that if they got the majority "things would change" but they never do. WHY do the jackasses always get what they want even when they are NOT in the majority? This only tells me that the rinos want the same thing the jackasses want because the jackasses get things done and the rinos allow it. Our entire political system is as corrupt as a 3rd world country!!!

    America, the belief that somehow the butchering of tens of millions of the most innocent and defenseless future American citizens could be anyone's constitutional right is at best a belief that originates from the depths of hell. I belief that all of us, to some degree or another, will have to answer to our heavenly Creator for allowing this horrifying culture of death to continue. At what point will the authorities stand up and be counted in defense of these little ones? At what point do the rest of us demand of these so called authorities to take action and rectify this horrific and vile act of senseless killings? When will we demand of the so called men and women of the cloth get off the pulpit and walk the streets of this great nation and give voice to these precious gifts from God that so many of us discard without conscious of the evil abortion represents. When!!

    God will be the judge. Where do we stand in this coming judgment?

    And they make a profit every year. Also they donated to every liberal running for office. Trump really needs to stop this!!

    This is why I'm so aggravated with the Republican Party - they say one thing then don't do anything. Instead of pulling the plug on Planned Parenthood, Congress gives them more of our tax money - where were the Republicans then? Where are our rights as Pro Life Americans to be able to demand STOP funding the PP using taxpayers money? Where are the babies rights to be allowed to live, to be loved by adopted parents? The cost for adoptions should be lowered, encouraging more parents the affordability to step forward.

    I am forty eight years old and have been patriot and have loved this great nation of ours since I can remember, but it is with a heavy heart that today I say that I am truly ashamed of what this country has become. My wife and I had the honor of babysitting our grandson last night, and as I held that beautiful three month old gift from God, all I could think about was the hundreds of thousands of beautiful innocent babies that have been murdered and the countless more that will be murdered by those monsters. The bombardment of emotions that swept over my soul was just overwhelming, there was sadness, disgust, rage, an utter feeling of hopelessness, and I'm not even sure what else, I just had to ask God to take all of those emotions from me so I could focus on the love I have for my grandson. Now that my little rant is over, my I offer a suggestion? Why can't we develop an app or some kind of program that allows the American public to give their vote on issues such as this one, or other issues that directly affect the citizens of this country such as Washington politicians giving themselves a raise, or our right to bear arms, we should have a say in what goes on in this country. Now I know that trying to vote on every issue is just not feasible, but I personally would go to the app, or even the voting booth to cast my vote for the really important issues. One last thing, why are we allowing those people who obviously are haters of our country and our way of life remain in "service" to the people, can we not impeach them just like they want to do to President Trump, just putting that out there. What are your thoughts? Thank you.
