Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report Shows Record Taxpayer Funding and Abortions
Live Action’s Lila Rose Calls For Justice and the Defunding of Planned Parenthood
Washington, D.C. – Planned Parenthood released their annual report for 2020-2021 on Friday, September 9, 2022, months later than expected.
Live Action’s President and Founder of Live Action, Lila Rose, released the following statement:
“Last year, Planned Parenthood killed 383,460 innocent children, that’s 1,051 babies per day, an 8% increase from the previous year. Through horrific abortion procedures, from the poison of the abortion pill regimen to the clamps and blades used in surgical abortions to kill and dismember preborn children, Planned Parenthood made a mockery of our healthcare system. This barbaric butchery should be illegal, but instead, it is subsidized by the American public, with taxpayers contributing an all-time high of $633.4 million to the abortion giant, an over $15 million dollar increase from the previous year. The first step toward justice is completely ending all ties between the American Taxpayer and America’s largest purveyor of abortion. Why are we funding the biggest abortion chain in the nation and the deaths of children?
Every day that Planned Parenthood receives taxpayer money is a day where every American is involuntarily complicit in the ableism, misogyny, and violence inherent to Planned Parenthood’s business model. Planned Parenthood must be defunded immediately, and their violent business shut down.”
