This week, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) introduced legislation in the Senate set to finally end taxpayer funded abortions.
In a statement, she said: “Tennesseans and the American people do not want their tax dollars funding abortions. They have made this clear time and again. Hardworking taxpayers do not want to subsidize the business of abortion providers and entities such as Planned Parenthood.”
This is why we elect Republicans to Washington! Americans are tired of organizations like Planned Parenthood providing services that go against our religious beliefs. This abortion organization disguises its services as contributory to women’s health and prenatal care, but the fact is that they perform more abortions that any other service — and they do much of it at the expense of the American people.
The Heritage Foundation reported that Planned Parenthood collected over $1.5 billion from the U.S. government between 2013-2015, just two years. According to Planned Parenthood, they recieve over a third of their funding from the U.S. government.
Monica Burke, a Research Associate for The Center for Religion and Civil Society at Heritage wrote, “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 their real priorities. Abortion remains Planned Parenthood’s bottom line.”
The Senate needs to make Blackburn’s newest legislation a priority. It’s no longer acceptable for organizations providing this service to get away with this scam. We, the American people, want an end to taxpayer funded abortions now.
