Abortion Foes Open a New Front
By STEPHANIE SIMON
Abortion opponents are pressing state and local governments to stop sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, arguing that the nonprofit group has plenty of cash and shouldn’t be granted scarce public funds at a time of economic crisis.
Planned Parenthood receives about $335 million a year — a third of its budget — from government grants and contracts…
These are tough economic times. The federal and state governments need to cut back spending to make ends meet. Where should we cut? Education? Police? Infrastructure?
We should end the abortion subsidy by cutting off all money to Planned Parenthood first.
I have many other things I’d like to cut as well, but this is the first thing that needs to go.
