NBC News reports, “Planned Parenthood will spend $45 million to support candidates in favor of abortion rights, the largest electoral program of its kind in the group’s history. The money will go toward supporting candidates at the presidential, congressional, and state levels.”
This move comes amidst scrutiny over Planned Parenthood’s 501(c)3’s spending on abortion, as their number of abortions has increased as taxpayer funding has increased. Planned Parenthood claims they are a healthcare organization but their healthcare services continue to decrease.
A chart from Live Action shows the severity of Planned Parenthood’s zeal for committing as many abortions as possible.
Katie Lodjic, the National Field Director for Students for Life Action criticized Planned Parenthood saying, “Planned Parenthood’s latest move reinforces that they are trying to get as many babies aborted as possible using our money. This reinforces why we must immediately defund Planned Parenthood and redirect the money to federally-qualified health centers.”
Planned Parenthood's annual report shows a decrease in health care services, an increase in abortions, and an increase in taxpayer funding.— Students for Life (@StudentsforLife) January 9, 2020
We MUST defund Planned Parenthood and give the money to health clinics that perform REAL healthcare.
