NPR friendly to PP points out the cost of births from uninteneded pregnancies ....what are they suggesting??

NPR , a supporter of abortion on demand writes a column in response to the states working on defunding Planned Parenthood. Read between the lines and what  they are getting at is that unplanned pregnancies cost the tax payer plenty of $$.  Even Guttmacher which supplies statistics used on both the pro life and pro abortion side shows that as the $$ flowed to PP, the rate of STDs, abortions have increased. The commenters do not like it when the truth is spoken but these are facts.

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.
Put another way, just over half of all births paid for by those programs, 51 percent, were the result of unintended pregnancies.
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....

They're suggesting that human life has a price tag. We're all just human resources, not human beings.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that a birth costs more than an a abortion. People neglect this fact when they say they are fine with abortion being legal but they don't want it to be publicly funded.
