National view: Religious Americans who believe abortion is murder shouldn't be forced to fund it


National view: Religious Americans who believe abortion is murder shouldn't be forced to fund it
Duluth News Tribune

First, let's dispense with the absurd notion that Planned Parenthood is somehow not in the abortion business. Fact checkers have hammered this fallacious claim for what it is — a ludicrous lie. As a lawyer I deal in evidence, so let's look at the facts. Planned Parenthood provides more than 323,000 abortions each year, making it the largest abortion provider in America. In fact, it accounts for an astonishing 30 to 40 percent of all abortions performed in the United States each year. Reputable estimates tell us that abortion procedures provide up to 55 percent of Planned Parenthood's annual clinic income.The bottom line is: Planned Parenthood is not only in the abortion business; it is the major player.So why is the largest abortion business in America raking in more than $553 million a year in taxpayer funding? Nearly half of Planned Parenthood's nearly $1 billion budget comes from federal, state and local taxpayer funds.
