Taxpayers spend $1 billion to promote abortion

By Elisabeth Meinecke: Organizations that promote or perform abortions spent nearly $1 billion in taxpayer money since 2002, according to a Government Accountability Office report released last week. . . . the GAO to look into the expenditures of six organizations and their affiliates: Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the International Planned Parenthood Federation, the Population Council, The Guttmacher Institute, Advocates for Youth, and Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States. The report says these organizations and their affiliates spent $967.1 million in federal funds for fiscal years 2002-2009.

Each of these organizations promotes or performs abortions. Planned Parenthood’s 2006-2007 annual report, for example, states the organization performed 289,750 abortions in 2006 alone—a year it spent $100 million of taxpayer’s money. It performed 306,310 abortions in 2007, when it spent $97.6 million of federal funds.

The Guttmacher Institute has advocated legalizing abortion across the globe, and the Advocates for Youth recently came out in support of the Global Sexual and Reproductive Health Act of 2010, which calls for “safe abortion.” The SIEC has its pro-abortion position listed on its website. . . .

“A majority of Americans oppose taxpayer funding for groups that promote or perform abortions,” Olson said in a statement on the report. “With the national debt over $13 trillion—costing every American $118,000—we must apply strict scrutiny to every federal dollar allocated.”

The issue of taxpayer-funded abortions was one of the primary battles during the passage of Obamacare in March. President Obama signed an executive order prohibiting taxpayer-funded abortions under the new healthcare law. But House Minority Leader John Boehner wrote in an op-ed Friday that it doesn’t appear the administration has implemented the order:

“As far as anyone can tell, the Obama Administration hasn’t lifted a finger to implement the executive order, even as it forges ahead aggressively with implementation of the rest of the massive new law. I asked President Obama about this directly at the White House last week. Since then, however, there has been no communication from the White House about the status of his executive order,” Boehner said. . . . [Full Article]

Planned Parenthood's missing millions

RITA DILLER: A new report from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on federal tax money funneled into Planned Parenthood and similar organizations raises more questions than it answers about the nation's largest abortion chain.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America's (PPFA) audits show the organization spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but the abortion behemoth's own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period.

That's not pocket change. Why the discrepancy? . . . (more)

Can you still be 'pro-choice' after watching this video?

H/T and Cross-posted from TheBlogProf: First the video via One True Media (behold the face of evil):

The President with a heart "bigger than any heart in the world" took this action on infanticide:
In 2002, as an Illinois legislator, Obama voted against the Induced Infant Liability Act, which would have protected babies that survived late-term abortions.

Obama voted against this bill in the Illinois senate and killed it in committee. Twice, the Induced Infant Liability Act came up in the Judiciary Committee on which he served. At its first reading he voted “present.” At the second he voted “no.”

The bill was then referred to the senate’s Health and Human Services Committee, which Obama chaired after the Illinois Senate went Democratic in 2003. As chairman, he never called the bill up for a vote.
That last part was a defacto "no" vote. More than the above is the personal account of nurse Jill Stanek who witnessed surviving babies being left to die in soiled linens:
Jill Stanek, a registered delivery-ward nurse who was the prime mover behind the legislation after she witnessed aborted babies’ being born alive and left to die, testified twice before Obama in support of the Induced Infant Liability Act bills. She also testified before the U.S. Congress in support of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

Stanek told me her testimony “did not faze” Obama.

In the second hearing, Stanek said, “I brought pictures in and presented them to the committee of very premature babies from my neonatal resuscitation book from the American Pediatric Association, trying to show them unwanted babies were being cast aside. Babies the same age were being treated if they were wanted!”

And those pictures didn’t faze him [Obama] at all,” she said.
Out of sight, out of mind. I've mentioned this many times in this blog but it is always worth repeating that the most viciously pro-abort zealot to ever sit in the Oval Office did the following:
The multiple pro-infanticide votes are the most egregious of the above egregious acts:
And who can forget this ghoulish stump speech where Obama likened babies to STDs and called them a punishment:

"By their fruit you will recognize them." But don't question his faith:
