Okay, there are a lot more than 154 reasons to defund Planned Parenthood, but I’m not going to mention all of them. However, this one really chaps my hide.
Planned Parenthood received nearly $560 million in tax payer money last year, which already begs the question, what do they do with all of it? I mean that is a lot of money, and many other great centers that don’t offer abortion get no funding. Of course, Planned Parenthood says that none of the tax payer money goes for abortions, but then again they also promised they weren’t selling baby parts illegally and we all know how that ended up.
Interesting how it’s only a lump of cells until you want to harvest the brain and then it becomes a human being with organs. Hmm, but I digress.
Anyway, Planned Parenthood stated they were going to spend 30 million dollars to make sure Trump didn’t get elected. Shouldn’t that money be going towards free birth control? If it did, perhaps we wouldn’t need abortions. But now, an affiliate with Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood Action, has also been taking out ads on Craigslist for Trump protesters. It’s sad when you can’t find enough people passionate enough about your cause to protest and you have to pay them, but I guess if you can’t get them passionate enough to vote, you certainly can’t get them passionate enough to protest without incentive.
Good thing our tax money isn’t funding that. Or wait, is it?
I guess we’ll never really know since Planned Parenthood doesn’t have to release their tax records either. You know when you think about it, it’s kind of odd that Planned Parenthood doesn’t like Trump. I mean they say he’s a racist, but Planned Parenthood was founded by Margaret Sanger who wanted to get rid of all the black people. They claim that Trump loves Hitler, but so did Margaret Sanger. I guess being a racist and a Hitler lover only matter if you don’t think killing innocent babies is okay.
I’m so tired of this organization. If instead of funding them, we diverted that money to all the other centers that don’t offer abortion or to adoption places to lower the cost for families, we’d be much better off. If they took the money their super PAC raised and used it to fund birth control and STD tests and the like, they wouldn’t even need tax payer money, but then Cecile Richards wouldn’t be making $600,000 a year.
And that would be a travesty, because who can live on less than $600,000 a year? Oh wait, the other 98% of the country, who doesn’t make a living off killing babies.
