Funding for (Planned Parenthood) has increased by the millions over the last several years, and yet STDs and abortion rates continue to rise," said Marjorie Dannenfelser of the Susan B. Anthony List, a group that works to elect anti-abortion women candidates, on NPR's Talk of the Nation.Guttmacher does a further study showing the cost to public programs as a result of unplanned pregnancies that end in live births.
In the current study, Guttmacher researchers looked at federal and state data to calculate how many births resulting from unintended pregnancies were paid for by public programs, primarily Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program.
two-thirds (64 percent) of the 1.6 million births resulting from unintended pregnancies in 2006 were paid for by public health insurance programs.What the abortion industry and their ally NPR is saying, gosh these lives births are costly. Better to kill the children in the womb....we need more $$ for education, birth control and abortions despite the dismal record of success. Keep the troughs full....
Put another way, just over half of all births paid for by those programs, 51 percent, were the result of unintended pregnancies.
