Planned Parenthood, the abortion factory that the left loves to fund, is crying for more money.
President Trump’s latest budget proposal is willing to give them funding, if they stop providing abortions.
“Let’s be clear: Federal funds already do not pay for abortions,” Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said on Monday. “Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept. Providing critical health care services for millions of American women is nonnegotiable.”
100 Percent Fed Up reports:
This deal seems pretty straightforward, even if the White House never quite made it official. Planned Parenthood wants to keep receiving Title IX funds intended for low-income women who need actual health care that could be provided by other clinics, especially those which offer actual pre-natal health care. If that was the case, they could get rid of the supposed three percent of their business that deals with abortions and use those resources to expand other offerings, including services they already claim to do but don’t actually provide at all. Their refusal to even consider the idea speaks volumes about their “values,” as do their abortion sales quotas.
Their annual report shows overall revenue at $1.146 billion, which includes $553.7 million from government funds, and only $309.2 million from “non-government health services revenue” — fees. If abortions only amount to 3% of their revenue, that would be $34.38 million for 332,000 abortions, or $103 per abortion (gross, not net after costs) if no other revenue was being used to cover it. These numbers don’t add up with the 3% claim.
Trump’s deal makes this much clear, at least: Planned Parenthood values its abortion mill much more than it values $500 million in government funding each year. That really tells us all we need to know about their 3% claim, their values, and the use of taxpayer dollars to subsidize the operations of the world’s leading abortion mill.
Hopefully Planned Parenthood will stop lying about where their funding is going and focus on actually helping women in need.
