Op-Ed in my local paper this morning. Planned Parenthood gets $363 million of our tax dollars and aborts 324,000 babies per year. That is $1,120 per abortion. I wonder what their profit margin is? As someone who believes abortion is murder, why should the STATE take my tax dollars to murder innocent babies? If it is legal to murder babies, the murderers should pay for it themselves. Isn’t that reasonable?
I’ve posted welfare and abortion articles this morning. That should keep it interesting on the site today. I can work on my article while the vitriol commences.
We need to defend the unborn
By Claude Mininger
Where is the money?
Planned Parenthood, according to numerous reports, received hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars, your hard-earned money and mine, and now apparently can’t account for it, according to a Washington Times story about a Government Accountability Office (GAO) report.
Millions of dollars missing at a time when every penny counts.
Yet, something else is missing, something far worse. Not just millions of dollars, but more than 1.4 million babies killed by Planned Parenthood abortions between 2002 and 2008.
These children are missing. They had no choice in the so-called “pro-choice” scenario. They were forever silenced.
It is a shame to this nation to allow abortion to continue killing babies, when our heavenly father “first designed and created man in his own imagine, in the image of God created he him” (Genesis 1:27).
Planned Parenthood’s abortion business is so extensive, according to researcher and author Sam Kastensmidt, that it is the third leading cause of death in the United States, more deadly then leukemia, brain cancer, skin cancer, diabetes, car accidents, Alzheimer’s and HIV/AIDs combined.
If you were to make a map of the United States and darken the states from Idaho to Arizona to Arkansas to Wisconsin, you would have “no life” in these 17 mid-western and western states since Roe vs. Wade went into effect in 1973 with the abortion of 53 million lives.
President Barack Obama does not seem to understand the magnitude of the tragedy. If he did, he surely would not have become the most pro-abortion president in history.
Now the president no longer has a solid majority of support on Capitol Hill for death-embracing policies.
This opens a window of opportunity for us to stand together and demand the accountability and defunding of Planned Parenthood.
What was not possible months ago is now possible because of the core of pro-life conservatives now in Congress.
The Lord has worked through conservative voters to change the congressional landscape, and you and I were part of this.
Now we truly have the potential to defend the unborn and make an impact to preserve the sanctity of life, preserve the lives of innocent babies, when we work and pray together and call on pro-life members of Congress to speak out.
Our new speaker of the House, John Boehner, said there is “no cause more noble than the defense of human life.”
He is the most pro-life speaker since the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe vs. Wade legalized abortion.
He is not alone on Capitol Hill. Last November a majority of Americans chose life as one of the country’s values.
The conservative surge brings as many as 246 pro-life lawmakers to the House.
The new pro-life majority includes a net gain of about 45 seats for the movement.
The number of women in the House who are now pro-life increased by 70 percent while the number of pro-abortion women in the House declined by 16 percent.
In 2008 and 2009, Planned Parenthood received more than $363 million in government grants while performing 324,000 abortions.
One more election could make a big difference in the Senate.
In 2012, 23 Democrats and just 10 Republican senators are up for re-election. Pro-life groups will remind those lawmakers that 15 out of 20 pro-life House Democrats who voted for the healthcare bill lost their jobs in 2010.
This is a warning to the liberal Democrats in the Senate.
If you vote for taxpayer-funded abortions “you should be prepared to lose you next election.”
