PLANNED PARENTHOOD ANNUAL REPORT SHOWS THAT IT RECEIVED $305,300,000 IN TAX MONEY LAST YEAR – A 12% INCREASE!
Last week, Planned Parenthood quietly issued its latest annual report http://www.plannedparenthood.org/files/PPFA/Annual_report.pdf. As always, the report was packed with lies about its “mission” to provide “quality health care” to women.
The one big truth in the 20-page report is that it got a total of $305,300,000 in free tax-funding last year. That’s a whopping 11.95% increase over the $272,700,000 it got the year before.
Let’s put that $305,300,000 in two equally important perspectives:
Perspective #1: Last year, Planned Parenthood surgically aborted over 264,943 preborn babies. As a ratio to the funds it gets on the government dole, that’s $1,152,323 for each baby torn apart in the womb!
Perspective #2: During the same year, the top five national pro-life organizations continued to receive exactly ZERO dollars in government funding. In the first six months of 2007, our own contributions are $160,000 behind the same point last year. And we’re the number one enemy of Planned Parenthood!
AN OVERVIEW OF THE REPORT’S MOST OUTRAGEOUS HEADLINES
I urge you and every pro-lifer to visit www.all.org and read our summary of Planned Parenthood’s annual report.
Until then, here are the key points every pro-lifer should know:
n Planned Parenthood had a total income of $902.8 million dollars. That’s a record and a 2.4% increase over last year.
n For the 34th year in a row, Planned Parenthood reported “excess of revenue over expenses”, otherwise known as “profit.” Last year’s profit was a whopping $55,800,000 dollars.
n Since 1973, Planned Parenthood’s total profits exceed $700,000,000 dollars.
n It has amassed a treasure chest of assets worth $839,000,000 dollars.
n It reported total “clinic” income of $354,000,000 dollars. We estimate that $112,600,000 of that came from abortions and $200,000,000 from the sale of contraception.
n Every penny of the $32,000,000 increase it got in tax dollars effectively went into its $55,000,000 profit.
But Planned Parenthood wants even more of your taxes. As I write this, Planned Parenthood is fighting for increased Medi-Cal reimbursement rates so it can get more taxpayer money from every customer.
IT’S TIME TO PUT A STOP TO THIS
It’s clear that politicians aren’t going to cut off Planned Parenthood’s funding unless they feel the outrage from average American citizens like you and me. Here’s what you can do starting today:
1) REGISTER your complaint now and often. We have to keep up the drumbeat, until elected officials stop this immoral use of our taxes.
2) If you haven’t already, SIGN our online petition – www.StopPlannedParenthoodTaxFunding.com – and urge your friends and family to do the same!
3) Since Planned Parenthood’s tax funding increased by 12%, please forward this message to at least 12 of your friends so that together we can put an end to Planned Parenthood’s tax funding.
It’s long past time that we all said NO! to Planned Parenthood.
