Lila Rose: Every day Congress delays defunding, Planned Parenthood gets another $1.5 million from taxpayers and kills 887 more preborn children

WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 27, 2017) — Statement from Lila Rose, president and founder of national pro-life organization Live Action, on the need for Congress and the president to act immediately to defund Planned Parenthood through the current budget reconciliation bill:

“Congress and President Trump must act now to use the current budget reconciliation bill to end the forced taxpayer funding of abortion giant Planned Parenthood and end the use of Obamacare subsidies to buy health insurance that pays for abortions.

“There is no more time for delay. Every day Congress fails to redirect tax dollars away from Planned Parenthood, the abortion chain gets another $1.5 million from taxpayers to keep its doors open and kill 887 more preborn children.

“According to its own annual reports, Planned Parenthood does less than one percent of all Pap tests in the United States, less than two percent of all clinical breast exams, zero mammograms, and virtually no prenatal care, yet it does 34.9 percent of all U.S. abortions, killing over 320,000 preborn children every year. Former Planned Parenthood managers have provided testimonials about how the abortion giant uses quotas to push cash-making abortionsdoesn’t provide the health care it claims it does, and ‘treats women like cattle.’

“America’s women and children deserve better, and Washington must ensure that taxpayer money spent on health care for women is actually spent on health care, not on keeping the doors to America’s largest abortion chain open. Congress and President Trump must immediately redirect the hundreds of millions in taxpayer subsidies now going to Planned Parenthood to thousands of community health centers that provide more access and more health care for women and their families.”
