Planned Parenthood gets about $500 million in taxpayer dollars every year and while they may offer other services, abortions accounted for 94 percent of the company’s pregnancy services in 2013.
A recent report released by the Government Accountability Office found that America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, received at least $1.5 billion in state and federal funding in a three-year span from 2010-2012.
The Christian Post reported:
A report released Wednesday by the Government Accountability Office found that America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, received at least $1.5 billion in state and federal funding in a three-year span from 2010-2012.
The investigation additionally found that the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and five other pro-abortion advocacy companies— Advocates for Youth, Guttmacher Institute, International Planned Parenthood Federation, Population Council, and the Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States – spent a combined total of nearly $482 million in direct federal funding received from Health and Human Services and United States Agency of International Development during that time.
Planned Parenthood spent most of the $482 million provided by HHS and USAID to the six groups, spending over $344 million of it. Additionally, Planned Parenthood received over $1.2 billion from combined state and federal funds from State Children’s Health Insurance Program, Medicare and Medicaid.
“The Obama Administration is committed to advancing a pro-abortion agenda and continually has placed the demands of abortion advocates and providers at the top of its public health agenda for six years [and] all the expenses [are] the taxpayers,” said the director of Family Research Council’s Center for Human Dignity, Arina Grossu, in a press release.
Despite the deceptive half-truths spread by supporters of Planned Parenthood, and that includes Obama who said woman rely on them for mammograms, Planned Parenthood does not and cannot provide mammograms. Because of this fact, leaders of the Susan G. Komen Foundation originally pulled grant funding from Planned Parenthood before they were bullied back into supporting the abortion provider.
