Debate: Should Government Stop Funding Planned Parenthood?

| by FRC

CNSNews.com reported last Thursday that Planned Parenthood received $349.6 million in taxpayer’s dollars for fiscal year ending June 30, 2008 and that its organization paid Cecile Richards, its president, $385,163, plus an additional $11,876 in deferred compensation and benefits – a whopping total of $397,039.

This payment was for overseeing the machinations of 324,008 abortions – the population of the city of Chicago at the time of the Great Fire in 1871. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood continues to work hard to convince us that we actually want to fund their version of “an honest day’s work.”

It’s finally time that we de-fund Planned Parenthood. Our nation’s children would appreciate it.
