In January President Barack Hussein Obama marked the 38th anniversary of Supreme Court’s landmark decision on abortion by calling the procedure a constitutional right he’s committed to protecting. Sticking to his agenda, Obama indicated last week he would veto the House-approved long-term spending bill for the federal government that contains the Pence Amendment, a measure that would defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
(Life News) Because of that provision and other pro-life riders that stop abortion funding globally and in the District of Columbia, the Washington Times indicates “Obama has issued a veto threat on that bill, saying House Republicans’ cuts are unacceptable.”
Tony Perkins, head of the Family Research Council explains,
“Until this administration came to town, it was illegal to take money out of our pockets and use it to directly finance the killing of D.C.’s unborn children. That all flew out the window in the 2009 omnibus, when the Democratic leadership insisted on giving District abortion doctors a direct pipeline to government dollars,” he explained.” Thanks to the last Congress, the capital of the free world is also the capital of free abortions. This is incredibly significant now, as House and Senate leaders wrestle over the new budget.”
But here’s the ‘good’ news, assuming Planned Parenthood and company aren’t fudging their facts and figures again (ahem):
(CNSnews) Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Web site shows that it performed a record number of abortions in 2009, up 8,270 from 2008. According to a fact sheet posted under “History of Planned Parenthood,” Planned Parenthood clinics in 2009 performed 332,278 abortions – up from 324,008 in 2008, or a 2.5 percent increase.
Planned Parenthood also distributed more than 1.5 million emergency contraception kits, which contain hormones that can prevent a fertilized egg from implanting in a women’s uterus.
Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in tax dollars in the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2008, according to its annual report.
Although federal law prohibits direct taxpayer funding of abortion, critics of Planned Parenthood claim the millions of dollars given to the organization (through Title X family planning appropriations) frees up other funds that can be used to perform and promote the procedure.
(Big Journalism) What will it take for Congress to stop funding this abusive and corrupt billion-dollar organization? What will it take for the Department of Justice to launch a thorough investigation of Planned Parenthood’s sexual abuse cover-up and medical misinformation? What will it take for us, the American public, to say, “Enough is enough!”
It’s a mad world:
