Eliminating public funding for Planned Parenthood has the Bold Colors seal of approval
Posted by Liberty on December 10, 2008
“Abortion opponents are pressing state and local governments to stop sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, arguing that the nonprofit group has plenty of cash and shouldn’t be granted scarce public funds at a time of economic crisis.
Planned Parenthood receives about $335 million a year — a third of its budget — from government grants and contracts to subsidize contraception, sex education and non-abortion-related health care for poor women and teenagers.
The group is also the nation’s largest abortion provider, and critics have long argued that the public funds indirectly subsidize abortions by keeping hundreds of Planned Parenthood clinics afloat.”
The Family Research Council is hard at work to try to get our tax money out of Planned Parenthood’s pocket. You can find them online at http://www.frc.org/.
