Even a single taxpayer dollar used for the destruction of helpless children would be a horrifying revelation. But the latest GAO report shows that abortion-pushers in the United States – Planned Parenthood, Advocates for Youth, SIECUS – spent $1.7 billion in combined federal and state money. And Planned Parenthood spent a shocking $1.5 billion of that money.
Live Action has shown over and over that Planned Parenthood, who leads the abortion charge in America, facilitates sex-trafficking and sends sexually abused minor girls back to their abusers. Planned Parenthood accepts money for racist and sexist abortions. It advocates for infanticide – the destruction of children who manage to survive abortion attempts, thus meeting even most abortion advocates’ criteria for personhood. And Planned Parenthood continues to go to court for massive fraud cases, bilking taxpayers out of millions more on top of what our government takes from us.
Those who don’t understand what abortion is need to learn. And those who do need to wake up, and realize that it’s their own money funding this grave human rights abuse. It’s time to defund Planned Parenthood.
Live Action is a new media movement dedicated to building a culture of life and ending abortion, the greatest human rights injustice of our time. We use powerful and dynamic media platforms to educate the public about the humanity of preborn children and investigative journalism to expose threats against the vulnerable and defenseless.
