Federal spending is out of control.
That is no secret. In fact, anyone who thinks federal spending is not out of control has serious delusion issues.
We need to cut spending so where is one of the first places we could make a pretty big cut?
Let’s eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood.
Last year Planned Parenthood received $542 million dollars from the government. That’s right, they received over half a billion dollars from you and me.
Why does Planned Parenthood get this money?
It is simple, they have a racket. Planned Parenthood supports Democrat candidates who turn around and vote to give Planned Parenthood even more money.
Why does Planned Parenthood need this money, other than to help get Democrats elected? Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortions in the nation. Planned Parenthood claims that it offers other services, yet 92% of its pregnancy services were abortions. In the last three years, Planned Parenthood has performed almost one million abortions.
Even if you think abortion should be legal, does anyone really think that a million abortions is a good thing?
The moment anyone talks about cutting Planned Parenthood’s funding, the usual liberal suspects start screaming. They claim that women will die without mammograms. The fact is, all Planned Parenthood does with Mammograms is refer them to other medical providers. Liberals scream that women will not get contraception and other cancer screenings. Yet in the last three years, Planned Parenthood’s contraceptive offerings have dropped by 12% and their cancer screenings have dropped by 29%.
The simple truth is Planned Parenthood has two core businesses. The first is abortion and the second is electing liberal Democrats who will keep the gravy train rolling for Planned Parenthood.
There is no good reason why the American people should keep this business in business.
Congressman Marsha Blackburn has introduced a bill, H.R. 61 to strip Planned Parenthood of its federal funding until they stop performing elective abortions and stop referring women for elective abortions.
We need your help. Contact your Congressman and ask them to support H.R.61 and demand an end to the funding of Planned Parenthood by the American taxpayer.
Today a letter was released signed by the leaders of 29 conservative organizations supporting H.R.61 and Congressman Blackburn. I was pleased to be one of the signers of this letter.
This is an obvious cut that we can make to spending. We have to start someplace so why not here?
Call your Congressman today and ask them to support and to co-sponsor H.R. 61 and let’s eliminate the Federal Government funding of just another liberal special interest group.
