Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States. Since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized abortion in all 50 states in 1973, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates have terminated the lives of over 8.3 million unborn babies. In 2018 alone, Planned Parenthood committed 345,672 abortions nationwide.
Yet Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion dollars per year in federal and state tax dollars.
According to Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report, Planned Parenthood’s affiliates received a total of $616.8 million from the federal government and various state governments during the 2018-2019 fiscal year which runs through June 30th. About 38% of Planned Parenthood’s total revenue each year on average comes directly from our tax dollars.
Federal funding for Planned Parenthood MUST stop and it must stop now! If we defund Planned Parenthood now, it may deal such a crippling financial blow that they will be forced to close many of their abortuaries.
There can be no room for political correctness or compromise when it comes to defunding Planned Parenthood. Every passing year we fail to defund Planned Parenthood means another 320,000+ lives will be lost.
