Starving "The Beast" -- Planned Parenthood

Dr. Bill Smith, Editor: While many are overcome and often focused (rightly so) on the horrors of abortions by Planned Parenthood, others have established efforts to stop these abortion mills. In the past, the pro-life movement demonstrated, held prayer vigils, rallies and marches on Washington, and developed exceptional educational material and ads to educate the public on life. All were important and are still very important.

Also the the establishment of "person-hood" for the baby in the womb is critical for the moral consciousness of the country and the right for life of each human regardless of their current state of habitation, either in the womb, in the crib or even at the end stages of their life.

However, to aid in stopping the major source of abortions in America - Planned Parenthood, we must focus on its lifeblood - money! While some have in the past and will in the future practice the evils of genocidal atrocities on earth, American citizens should not be asked to fund with their tax dollars these type actions. Consider the following two articles which evidence why Planed Parenthood is desperate for government tax money. Without government money, "the beast" would have a harder time funding their non-abortion activities which they use to mask their money making abortion activities.

The present messaging by the pro-life movement is clearly making a difference as identified in the following two articles. However, we must continue to push to stop "tax dollars" from being provided to "the beast."

The first article highlights that Planned Parenthood gets almost half of its money from tax money. Money that should be going to other critical government programs or returned to the taxpayers. it should not be used to support Planned Parenthood which commits millions from abortions. The beast uses the people's tax dollars to allegedly fund their non-abortion operations which provides them an air of civility and aids in getting people both in their doors and in imaging to access private donations. At this point in time, the receipt of public funds (tax dollars) has become more critical to Planned Parenthood as evidenced by the second article. The second article identifies that Planned Parenthood is has suffered from a loss of at least 28% in their private donations.

While all the pro-life efforts of the past and the recognition of the personhood of babies in the womb are very important, at this very critical nexus point, to stop all public funding (tax dollars) to "the beast," We must stop the funding of the efforts of Planned Parenthood which mask their abortion activities. This effort may not slay this "beast" but as it is starved of tax money, it will shrink in size and lives of future generations will be saved in the process.

Planned Parenthood Report: $1B Group Gets 46% From Tax Money

Warning: Death Within
Planned Parenthood has released its new annual report and the figures show the abortion business continues to make money despite its status as a nonprofit organization — and it receives almost half of its income from taxpayer dollars.

On December 27, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) released its latest Annual Report for 2009-2010. The report indicates PPFA had a total budget of $1.04 billion and an excess of revenue over expenses of 18.5 million dollars — a net profit.

The abortion business reports $513 million in current assets and $570 million in property, equipment and an endowment while showing $184 million in liabilities for buildings and other debts.

The new report also reveals 46 percent of the total PPFA budget comes from taxpayer dollars in the form of government funding. At the same time, just 21 percent of the income the abortion business brings in comes from private donors (it lists 528,000 active donors) while 31 percent of its revenue is derived from abortions “non-government health services revenue.”

The abortion business also reports spending $56 million in lobbying expenses — more than dwarfing the collective total size of some of the largest pro-life organizations that work in Washington, D.C. to lobby Congress on behalf of pro-life Americans. . . . [Read More]

Planned Parenthood Sees 28% Decline in Private Donations
Last week the 2009-2010 Planned Parenthood annual report was released and it shows that the leading abortion group had suffered a significant decline in private contributions. In 2009 they reported 308 million in private donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations yet in 2010 they saw that number fall to 223.8 million.

This chart illustrates the drop-off.

While it is unknown what exactly caused the decline in financial support, Planned Parenthood has come under increased criticism in recent years after getting caught willing to cover-up the child sexual abuse and accepting funds specifically for the purpose of aborting black babies.

The Hyde Amendment

AmericanLifeLeague: Taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood is taxpayer funding of abortion.

Fungibility: The state of being interchangeable. For example, money has fungibility because there is no difference between one dollar and another dollar.

Tax dollars or private dollars - they all support the operations of Planned Parenthood including abortions. The only solution. Stop violating the law and stop giving money to Planned Parenthood who generates 1/3 of their revenue from abortions.

Planned Parenthood's Victims

AmericanLifeLeague: There are a few "services" Planned Parenthood keeps off its list. They don't mention the $400 Thousand they spend lobbying Congress to get $363 Million in tax subsidies. The failed to mention their employees failure to report rape, abuse ans the sex trafficking of children. Or, that 1/3 of their revenue comes from abortions. or the millions of dollars the got caught over billing the Federal government for medical services.
