Isn't it interesting that as taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood increases so do the number of abortions they perform? Their annual report just released showed a record number of abortions in the fiscal year 2011-12 and coincidentally their federal funding reached an all-time high as well.
Abortions make up more than 92 percent of their services while prenatal care and adoption referrals account for less than 8 percent. By their own account, 45 percent of their revenue is from our tax dollars. Now they are even mandating that all their affiliates perform abortions.
Abortion is not healthcare and I applaud Rep. Diane Black for reintroducing HR 217 to defund Planned Parenthood. Americans do not want any tax money going to the nation's largest promoter and provider of abortions. I congratulate Rep. Black for her strong defense of the sanctity of human life and encourage everyone to support this effort to defend life.
