It's time we as taxpayers take a long hard conscientious look at how our tax dollars are spent. The funding of Planned Parenthood must stop. It is a crime to think that Planned Parenthood holds itself out to be an organization that helps women. It is an abortion business receiving $1.1 billion tax dollars with $63 million left over after expenses. Planned Parenthood gets one-third of its annual budget from taxpayer funding, and it performed a total of more than 650,000 abortions in just 2008 and 2009 (the last years for which figures are available).
Planned Parenthood has adamantly opposed laws in nearly two dozen states that require clinic staff to show a woman a sonogram before the abortion takes place. So much for supporting informed choice.
