Planned Parenthood’s lesson in money loss

Planned Parenthood seems to be on a crash course of money loss.  The abortion giant is about to learn what it’s like to operate without quite so many taxpayer dollars.  Several states—including Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Kansas, and Texas— have been pulling grants and other state money from Planned Parenthood in recent days.

Take, for example, the actions of Wisconsin’s GOP Governor Scott Walker.  Governor Walker stripped Planned Parenthood of their funding from a $130,000 state program that provides low-income women with cancer screenings.  Predictably, Planned Parenthood was outraged, and “demanded” to know how the “health or lives of women” would be cared for.  How in the world would women ever be safeguarded without their Great Protector, Planned Parenthood?

While Planned Parenthood appears to believe they’re the only answer that women have, they need to wake up to reality.  As Governor Walker informed them, “The [Well Woman] program is still in place.  There are many clinics that are not as controversial as Planned Parenthood, and our goal was to make sure low-income women had access to those sorts of screenings from other providers around the state that don’t carry the controversy you get with Planned Parenthood.”

Score one for the truth.  Planned Parenthood’s real motivation in going after state money for “services” is so that they have extra money for their abortion business.  They’d really like to continue their proven track record of being a “for-profit non-profit”.  Raking in over $60 million in profits a year sounds pretty good if you ask Cecile Richards.

Planned Parenthood in Michigan also just lost a $200,000 taxpayer funded grant.  They were planning on receiving funds from the state to carpet, decorate, and otherwise set up a building they had already purchased in Auburn Hills.  However, one of Planned Parenthood’s many lies were found out just in time.

They were apparently aware of a deed restriction placed on the building by Comfort Inn, the previous owner.  Comfort Inn had restricted the property so that it could not be used as an abortion clinic.  However, Planned Parenthood employed deception as usual, never mentioning their name in the deal-making process or that they planned to do abortions at the clinic.  Instead, they convinced the owners to agree to a “medical clinic” forming in the empty building.  Thankfully, Planned Parenthood’s lies were discovered and they were rightfully stripped of state funding.
