ICYMI: Planned Parenthood’s Massive Political Operation Is Done On Your Tax Dollars
America’s largest abortion company also has a huge political operation. Its affiliated arms have pushed $20 million into this year’s midterms. They worked with three other groups for a combined $30 million towards liberal advocacy. And while legally Planned Parenthood’s $540 million-plus government teat is “separate” from the abortion giant’s political action, the fact is that Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer dollars fill one pocket so other dollars are put in the political pocket.
Planned Parenthood’s political advocacy isn’t limited to abortion:
Despicable, egregious, unconstitutional.
Eliminating #birthrightcitizenship would be incredibly harmful & is part of this administration’s radical, hateful agenda to stoke fear in our communities and contribute to many people’s already very real fear of deportation. https://t.co/r3SUnkNVBm

Yes, Planned Parenthood thinks the children of illegal immigrants have the right to be born American citizens, but the children of American citizens don’t have a right to be born.
What Planned Parenthood Hasn’t Been Doing
All of this is done in the open. It’s also done despite a lower number of services, clients, and locations. As detailed in a new report by Live Action:
- clients have decreased 23 percent (3.1 million in 2006 vs. 2.4 million in 2016);
- it closed 260 facilities (860 facilities in 2006 vs. 600 facilities in 2016);
- breast exams have decreased by 62 percent;
- cervical cancer screenings have decreased by 74 percent; and
- contraception services have decreased by 32 percent.
Yet while many services have decreased over the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers are up by 11 percent (to over 320,000 babies each year) and taxpayer funding has skyrocketed from $336 million in 2006 to $543 million a year in 2016.
Planned Parenthood is among the worst of groups. Its scant breast exams and cervical cancer screenings don’t offset its slaughter of unborn children.
Those are just the abortions about which we know. Its “contraception services” include abortifacients. This means many more abortions may take place…
3 ways taxpayers are funding abortion at Planned Parenthood
By Becky Yeh November 5, 2015

8 Nonpartisan Reasons To Defund Planned Parenthood
By Dustin Siggins J 15, 2019
The fact is that political parties are going to keep fighting on abortion. Republicans will claim that they prioritize pro-life policies, even though they didn’t defund Planned Parenthood or pass any federal bans when they controlled Congress and the White House. Meanwhile, Democrats will keep abortion sacrosanct.
Both parties are wrong: abortion should be ended. The first step to this should be a bipartisan ending of Planned Parenthood’s funding. To quote March For Life President Jeanne Mancini about America’s largest abortion company, “protecting vulnerable, unborn citizens should be a bipartisan goal.”
Planned Parenthood dominates the Democratic Party, even though Planned Parenthood violates a number of the party’s core principles. As shown below, women are harmed by Planned Parenthood, and the vulnerable––such as sex abuse victims and the unborn––are sacrificed for profit and political advance.
