Kirsters Baish| Ever since the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the left has been attacking the National Rifle Association. They should be ashamed. The progressive left have stooped to calling NRA members “child murderers,” when in reality they are the ones supporting the largest abortion provider in our country, Planned Parenthood.
“A recent government report has revealed that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, received over $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from 2013 to 2015.
In 2016, over 120 House and Senate members sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office requesting information on federal funding for certain organizations involved in health-related activities. The report was made public last week, and the findings are astounding.
Over a three-year period, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates spent $288 million in federal funds. They also received $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid, which combines federal and state funds. That adds up to a whopping total of $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from federal health programs.
Yet, despite receiving billions in taxpayer funds over the course of three years, Planned Parenthood’s scope and services have both declined. The organization’s 2015-2016 report revealed that Planned Parenthood served 100,000 fewer women in 2015-2016 compared to 2014-2015. Its number of health centers and affiliates declined, and it performed fewer cancer screenings and prevention services. It also performed fewer breast examinations, fewer HPV vaccinations, and provided prenatal services to 8,000 fewer women than the previous year.
But the abortion giant did perform several thousand more abortions than the year prior: 328,348 compared to the previous year’s 323,999. Moreover, Planned Parenthood performed 83 abortions for every one adoption referral.
Planned Parenthood claims to provide a full range of women’s health services and to present women with a variety of choices, but the figures make clear its real priorities. Abortion remains Planned Parenthood’s bottom line.”
This is very interesting as Planned Parenthood was given $1.2 billion in government Medicaid funding. This is for women who are on or below poverty level. It almost seems like Margaret Sanger (the white supremacist founder of Planned Parenthood) has a goal eliminating “undesirables” and “weeds.” When the left supports Planned Parenthood, they are supporting the killing of unborn children.
There are free clinics run by the federal government which perform services that Planned Parenthood has recently seen a drop in providing. Most people are unaware that the NRA gave roughly $7 million to school districts to support shooting sports teams in JROTC programs.
