Taxpayer Funding of Planned Parenthood: An Unhealthy Choice!

The Akron-Beacon Journal has an editorial today (on Ohio.com) titled titled “Unhealthy Choice.” It was fluff piece extolling the 'virtues' of the malicious organization, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the largest abortion provided with 800 plus 'clinics.'

The gist of the editorial presents a case for funding this despicable organization. The writer talks about the positive things that the dastardly Planned Parenthood organization does. It talks about the “breast and cervical screenings to vaccinations and pregnancy testing” that it offers to women. The article uses such terms as “indispensible” and “an essential link” in referring to the services that it offers to women. I disagree with the editorial completely.

Here are some additional comments, which I submitted in response to this terribly liberally biased, pro-death editorial:

You leave out some very important reasons for Congressman Mike Pence and a slew of his bipartisan members voting to defund the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. PPFA is much like ACORN, which also lost its funding because of the lawbreaking shenanigan it undertook.
PPFA in Ohio did not report cases of child rape, which it was obligated to report. PPFA clinics have been caught in undercover investigations advising pimps, prostitutes and sex traffickers of minors how to skirt the state laws.  Clinic staff even aided and abetted in offering advice as how to avoid the law.
The funds that PPFA receives from the government amount to over $360 million (1/3 of a BILLION!) annually. Those funds are fungible. PPFA shrewdly claims that none of those funds are used directly for abortions. However, those funds prop up or subsidize to a great extent overhead cost for their legal, but wicked abortion practice. Taxpayers essentially fund abortions through money provided for the “family planning” side of Planned Parenthood’s operation.  PPFA performs 300K abortions each year. It leads this horrific industry in the number of abortions performed.  
Further, PPFA has been in serious legal trouble in fraudulent billing in several states. For all of these reasons and more PPFA should be DEFUNDED in the 2011 continuing resolution as well as in the FY 2012 budget.  


I am  not sure my comments will be published on line. As lame as the editorial was and as biased as it was I am doubtful that they would want to have their readers exposed to the truth. You can be further exposed to the truth about Planned Parenthood by clicking on the link below. Please contact your U.S. Senator as urge him or her to keep the defunding of Planned Parenthood in the Continuing Resolution for 2011 government operation.
