Members of the U.S. Senate—including your two senators—will likely have the chance to vote on defunding Planned Parenthood in the next two weeks.
Senators are poised to debate a number of proposals, including a measure to eliminate tax dollars from going to the nation's top abortion seller—Planned Parenthood.
Critics of the move to defund the abortion organization point to its non-abortion activities as a reason to continue public funding. Planned Parenthood could choose to stop selling abortions, continue its non-abortion services and still receive tax dollars.In fact, the president went so far as to boldly offer Planned Parenthood this option.It declined.
If you want to see a stop to your tax dollars—to the tune of more than half-a billion dollars a year—going to Planned Parenthood, please contact your two senators today!
Facts about Planned Parenthood, abortion and money:
Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion seller, with almost one in three U.S. abortions committed at its facilities.
In 2015, it received $554 million in public dollars.
More than 1 in 7 Planned Parenthood clients have abortions.
The number of Planned Parenthood abortions has increased more than 40 percent since 2002—this during a period of time when the overall number of abortions has dropped nationally.
Planned Parenthood's estimated annual revenue from selling abortions could be as high as $200 million a year.
Therefore, it should not be allowed to take taxpayer dollars while in the abortion business.
After all, it was Planned Parenthood's choice. Send a note to your two U.S. senators
