For everyone attacking the National Rifle Association, let me share something that should shame the progressive socialist left…”should” being the operative word.
As reported by CNSNews.com, “A recent government report has revealed that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, received over $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from 2013 to 2015.
In 2016, over 120 House and Senate members sent a letter to the Government Accountability Office requesting information on federal funding for certain organizations involved in health-related activities. The report was made public last week, and the findings are astounding.
Over a three-year period, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates spent $288 million in federal funds. They also received $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid, which combines federal and state funds. That adds up to a whopping total of $1.5 billion in taxpayer funds from federal health programs.
Yet, despite receiving billions in taxpayer funds over the course of three years, Planned Parenthood’s scope and services have both declined. The organization’s 2015-2016 report revealed that Planned Parenthood served 100,000 fewer women in 2015-2016 compared to 2014-2015. Its number of health centers and affiliates declined, and it performed fewer cancer screenings and prevention services. It also performed fewer breast examinations, fewer HPV vaccinations, and provided prenatal services to 8,000 fewer women than the previous year.
But the abortion giant did perform several thousand more abortions than the year prior: 328,348 compared to the previous year’s 323,999. Moreover, Planned Parenthood performed 83 abortions for every one adoption referral.
Planned Parenthood claims to provide a full range of women’s health services and to present women with a variety of choices, but the figures make clear its real priorities. Abortion remains Planned Parenthood’s bottom line.”
Very interesting, Planned Parenthood received $1.2 billion in government Medicaid funding, meaning for those women at or below poverty level. It appears that the goal of the white supremacist and racist who founded Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, is being achieved. Sanger wanted the elimination of “undesirables” and “weeds” and we know where the majority of Planned Parenthood clinics is located. Funny, you won’t hear anyone on the left — you know, the folks screaming about the NRA murdering children — will say anything about this. As well, we previously shared with y’all that Planned Parenthood is planning on spending $20 million for political advocacy and support to their chosen candidates. You know, those candidates who support killing unborn children, even in the very last trimester…that is infanticide.
The federal government has clinics, free clinics, that perform those services for which Planned Parenthood is seeing a drop in providing. So, what is the purpose of giving this private sector, not-for-profit organization U.S. taxpayer dollars, to include Medicaid? Little known fact, the NRA provided some $7 million dollars to school districts to support their shooting sports teams…air rifles. And yes, many of those programs are in our high school JROTC programs. And if I’m not mistaken, there are still national and international shooting sports competitions, to include the Olympics. The funds provided are raised at “Friends of the NRA” dinners, like the one folks in NYC were forcing to be cancelled. But, it’s ok to fork over millions, no billions, of dollars of taxpayer funds to an organization whose purpose is to “kill the weeds?”
So, the NRA, the nation’s oldest civil rights organization, which receives no taxpayer funding, is castigated as a terrorist organization for standing up for the Second Amendment? What consequences are there for an organization founded by a white supremacist and racist? Oh yeah, maybe we should give them more taxpayer dollars.
This is how abjectly upside down we have become in America. We have folks who will go apoplectic over a woman’s “right” to kill her unborn child as a means of birth control…minority population control was Sanger’s objective. Yet, the very same folks will go nuts over a law-abiding, legal gun-owning American. As Spock would say, “fascinating.”
Simple final question, which organization is directly responsible, daily, for killing human life, the National Rifle Association or Planned Parenthood? And which organization is federally funded to kill unborn babies?
Hate to put it in your face that way, but I am known for my direct and blunt manner.
