Defund Planned Parenthood

The Author at a Defund Planned Parenthood Rally

On February 10, 2017, I participated in a Defund Planned Parenthood Rally in my home state of Arizona.

Your federal congressmen (US Senators, and Representatives) are now considering defunding Planned Parenthood.  And while I don’t believe that The Affordable Care Act should be rescinded along with it, I do believe that Planned Parenthood’s $430 million federal funding should be eliminated.

Here’s why:

*Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion chain, and abortions are their largest source of clinical income.

*Planned Parenthood is a corrupt organization.  They have been caught shielding child predators, lying about what services they provide, deceiving government officials, defying state and federal laws, submitting fraudulent Medicare claims, and harvesting and selling fetal tissue.

*Planned Parenthood exaggerates their role in women’s healthcare.  They offer zero mammograms annually, and offer no prenatal care.

*Planned Parenthood would not reduce women’s healthcare.  Every federal dollar taken from Planned Parenthood would be redirected to Federally Qualified Health Centers that do not offer abortions, and do offer a wider range of services and a higher standard of care.

For those of you who think that Planned Parenthood started out as a good organization and just lost their way, I beg to differ.

Here’s some quotes from Margaret Sanger founder of Planned Parenthood, which demonstrates her support of eugenics, and population control of African Americans. She called it the “Negro Project." The quotes are taken from some of her letters, circa 1939, found in the historical archives, and are part of our nation’s historical record.

“The mass of Negroes particularly in the South, still breed carelessly and disastrously, with the result that the increase among Negros, even more than among Whites, is from that portion of the population least intelligent and fit…The most successful education approach to the Negros is through religious appeal (the black ministers of the Gospel.)”1

I urge all of my readers to contact their United States federal representatives to voice their opposition of funding Planned Parenthood.   You may click on the links below to find out who they are and how to contact them.
