Whether you like it or not, you—yes, you—help pay for abortion “procedures.”
We are on the heels of the scandal revealed about Planned Parenthood last week. They reportedly sell aborted baby parts.
But as ghastly as that is, everyone needs to not lose sight of two things.
First, how did those babies get to the point of their remains being sold? Oh, that’s right, Planned Parenthood butchers them while they are alive in their mothers’ wombs.
As great as it is to see the nation upset for the selling of human remains, where’s the moral outrage for their baby murdering practice?
Second, remember your tax dollars pay for baby murder.
Oh, sure, you’re pro-life. Yeah, we know you would never take someone to an abortion center. You wouldn’t dream of handing over your hard-earned money for an unborn baby to be dismembered.
But let me ask you, do you pay your taxes?
Of course you do.
Did you know your tax dollars fund Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider?
That’s right. Uncle Sam claims way more than his fair share of your paycheck. Then he turns around and gives a portion of that money to the “non-profit” organization, Planned Parenthood.
And we’re not talking a small chunk of change, either.
In the past, I interviewed Rita Diller, the director of Stop Planned Parenthood (STOPP), an American Life League affiliate. As well, I published another article where she gives us some tips on what we can do to rid Planned Parenthood from our communities. I encourage you to check those out as well.
Let me share with you some statistics about Planned Parenthood. These were compiled by STOPP.
STATS ABOUT PLANNED PARENTHOOD—THE RECIPIENT OF YOUR TAX DOLLARS
A whopping $528.4 million dollars of federal spending went directly to Planned Parenthood’s coffers for the fiscal years 2013-14.
In that same year span, Planned Parenthood reports it performed 327,653 surgical “abortion procedures.”
That averages to 898 unborn babies who lose their lives every day to the blood-stained hands of Planned Parenthood abortionists.
One-in-four surgical abortions in the USA is done at a Planned Parenthood facility.
During the 2013-14 fiscal year, the nation’s largest abortion provider dispensed 1,440,495 emergency contraceptives. These too act can act as abortifacients—killing more unborn babies.
In that same time span, Planned Parenthood performed 4,166 male sterilizations and 822 female sterilizations.
As well, Planned Parenthood sold 2,131,865 contraceptives in that same stretch.
Oh, and this “non-profit” organization reports $127.1 million in profits for the 2013-14 fiscal year.
Is this where your tax money needs to be sent? Is your blood boiling yet?
Naysayers are always quick to point out “all the good” Planned Parenthood does.
After all, the organization claims it did 378,692 PAP tests in the 2013-14 fiscal year. They conducted 487,029 breast exams, supposedly. As well, Planned Parenthood reports 18,684 prenatal visits and 32,334 colposcopy procedures in the 2013-14 fiscal year.
Hey, they even purport to have made a whopping—get this—1,880 referrals for adoption.
You’re supposed to be impressed…
Wait, you’re not awestruck?
The naysayers and Planned Parenthood employees fail to see the obvious: evil cannot be done so that good can come from it.
Killing unborn babies, as they do, merits Planned Parenthood the label of being an evil organization. Murdering for hire is never ethical, no matter what medical expertise they want to claim.
No one is against prenatal visits to competent health workers, nor against colposcopy exams, breast exams, or other gynecological checkups.
But Planned Parenthood is not the sole provider of any of the procedures they perform. Going elsewhere for such services would obviously decrease the nation’s largest abortion provider’s revenue. This would, in time, cause them to close more of their doors.
Let’s compare it to this. What if you knew your local dry cleaning place was murdering kindergarteners in its back room? Would you ever go there asking them to iron your shirts?
When will enough people wake up to what is going on? Because, in the meantime, Planned Parenthood will keep lining their pockets with your tax dollars.
