Defund Planned Parenthood

This is a tough one. I tend to agree with the author of this letter, but can sure see there is two sides to this coin.

Defund Planned Parenthood
March 29, 2011

Planned Parenthood's article last week wanted to make it crystal clear what PP means to West Virginia families. Beware of what the wolf in sheep's clothing failed to mention.

According to National Right to Life Committee, PP is the nation's largest abortion provider, reporting 324,008 abortions in 2008 and mandating all regional affiliates must provide abortions by 2014. As with slavery, children in America will someday wonder how the butchering of unborn children called abortion could have ever been legal in this nation.

Polls show seven out of 10 Americans oppose using tax dollars to pay for abortions. While abortion rates have dropped 25 percent since 1990 , Planned Parenthood has doubled their number of abortions. Abuses in PP clinics uncovered recently by journalists posing as sex traffickers, hiding pimps and statutory rape, accepting racist donations and fighting laws that protect children.

Federal funding only accounts for one-third of PP's annual $1.2 billion budget, of which 17 percent goes to cancer screenings that seemed to be their main function in the article. Nonprofits in America raise billions yearly, yet PP only receives 28 percent of their budget from donations. For an organization who has "choice" for a middle name; appeal to private citizens to "choose" to contribute rather than force taxpayers to fork out $360 million yearly.

The article touts family planning services - isn't that the job of the government in China? Where in the U.S. Constitution is government put in the "family planning" business? The article said the Vienna clinic had 600 patients last year - less than three per day - hardly seems worthwhile to keep the doors open? They also stated 100 percent of West Virginia services are preventative.

WVFL has a tape of Vienna PP phone call offering to help a 13-year-old girl impregnated by 22-year-old boyfriend to get an abortion without parental consent. During our 40 Day prayer vigil last fall, two families shared stories of going for pregnancy tests at Vienna PP and were pressured to abort. Doesn't sound like preventative services to me. PP has websites encouraging teens in premarital sex and promoting homosexuality. Millions of tax subsidized dollars go to their lobbyists and PR firms. We are paying them to lobby tax dollars to spend on activities our government shouldn't be involved with to begin with. Democrats threaten to shut down government over abortion funding. Father Frank Pavone says,"If that be the case, then shut it down. When a government funds massive child-killing, it has betrayed its very purpose anyway." Please call Rockefeller and Manchin urging them to defund Planned Parenthood.
