Did you know?

"During its 2005-2006 fiscal year, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America performed a record 264,943 abortions, attained a high profit of $55.8 million and received record taxpayer funding of $305.3 million.

According to its annual report, income is divided roughly into three major categories: clinic income (fees charged to customers at clinics); donations (gifts from corporations, foundations and individuals); and taxpayer money (grants and contracts from federal, state and local government).

For the year July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006, Planned Parenthood received $345.1 million in clinic income, $305.3 million in taxpayer funding and $212.2 million in donations. Total income reached $902.8 million while total expenses came to $847.0 million, leaving a profit of $55.8 million."

And to think, Planned Parenthood wants more of our tax money. :: sigh ::


"Title X Funding: This account, already funded at $283 million annually, is intended to be used for family planning. Tragically, in reality, it is used almost exclusively for abortion-related services, most often by Planned Parenthood. [b]This year, Congressman Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and Planned Parenthood are asking for an additional $100 million in Title X funding. [/b]While the Hyde Amendment (if renewed) would prohibit these funds from directly funding abortions, the additional funding would certainly free up other funds to be used for abortions."
ACLJ Trial Notebook



I have always disliked the fact that part of our tax money goes to this organization, but after seeing the above information, it makes me downright angry. When I sit and think about it a bit more, I grow very sad. I weep. Lord, have mercy on our nation.
What have we done?

If this is something you would like to write your political leaders about (please do) - you can visit ACLJ for more information. You can also Google for your state reps and email them your concerns.
