Planned Parenthood, Abortion & Feeding Off The Public Tit

Planned Parenthood is many things. First and foremost, it is our nation's largest abortion mill, performing 333,964 abortions last year.

Two, Planned Parenthood is a provider "sexual and reproductive health care." In addition to abortions, it engages in providing contraception, testing for STD's and for cervical cancer.

Three, Planned Parenthood is a far left advocacy organization, and indeed, it has been since its inception under Margaret Sanger, a deeply committed socialist with two goals. One, Sanger, a eugenicist, wanted to limit the number of children being born to blacks, and two, she wanted to remove from sex any hindrance of ethical and moral limits, as well as any physical consequence of pregnancy. She saw herself as a direct opponent of Christianity in our nation and actively sought to move religion from the public square.

Planned Parenthood was the recipient last year of "a record $542 million in taxpayer funding in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements," that accounting for 45% of their annual revenue. Like ACORN, the far left found a way to get one its primary advocacy organizations on the public dole in a huge way. As I've written before, the penchant of the Democrats for funneling hundreds of millions of our tax dollars to far left is one of the most corrupting aspects of our government and politics. No advocacy group, right or left, should be feeding off the public tit. That is doubly true for Planned Parenthood in consideration of the fact that Planned Parenthood is an abortion mill.

For years, it has been the law that federal funds cannot be used for abortion. That said, it is not hard to for Planned Parenthood to account for all federal funds as being used to fund everything but abortion - including overhead that allows it to do abortion in the first place.
