First we read that Democrats Give a Discount to Planned Parenthood by using a bill designed to help fund our troops. According to CitizenLink.com, on Wednesday, the U.S. Senate voted on an amendment to the War Supplemental Appropriations Bill. Democrats, led by Sen. Barack Obama, had inserted language to help Planned Parenthood into the domestic-spending portion of this troop-funding bill. The Senate passed the amendment 75-22.
Next a note from Father Pavone of Priests for Life concerning what we can expect from the billion dollar Big Abortion Lobby:
In fact, two of the largest pro-abortion organizations – NARAL and Planned Parenthood – have announced they plan to spend $10,000,000 each to influence voters and counteract the kind of work organizations like us are doing. You read that correctly: TEN MILLION DOLLARS EACH ... a total of $20,000,000!!!
Finally, we have this tidbit from the Family Research Council concerning the GOP's Dirty Dozen, twelve Republicans begging President Bush to help keep our $330 Million tax dollars flowing to Planned Parenthood - - in essence robbing the poor to give to the rich abortion profiteers.
The GOP's Dirty Dozen
May 23, 2008
Yesterday, 12 Republicans, led by Rep. Mark Kirk (Ill.), quietly sent a letter to President Bush asking him to keep the current Title X regulations. The current rules bar pro-life groups from receiving Title X funds and allow groups like Planned Parenthood (PP) to use dollars to help keep their profitable abortion business viable.
The existing Title X policy was put in place by President Clinton, who overturned President Reagan's regulations which protected taxpayer monies by separating the supposedly clean side of PP's business (PAP and breast cancer screening, HIV testing, etc.) from the abortion side.
A large majority of Americans believe that the federal government should not be funding abortionists, yet that is exactly what President Clinton's regulations, which have been maintained by President George W. Bush, do.
If this Dirty Dozen were really serious about protecting the supposedly legitimate side of PP, they would welcome new regulations to protect those efforts.
In light of recent revelations that PP clinics across the nation have been involved in racism, defrauding taxpayers and complicit in the statutory rape of young girls, someone should ask these appeasers of abortion and bad government why they seek to shield potential criminal activity.
If President Bush fails to act, our future President should. These changes are necessary to protect women and to protect PP from itself.
