Defunding Planned Parenthood

Regardless of what you think about Planned Parenthood and its mission, I would hope that you would agree to this:  If I find abortion to be morally repugnant, I shouldn't have to pay for it.

Along those lines:

Finally, we know that Planned Parenthood’s abortion business is very, very lucrative. The organization does a billion dollars worth of “business” each year. Abortions alone account for over a third of this revenue, even though only one in 10 patients come for an abortion. Another third comes from you and me in the form of government grants and contracts. As a result of this profiteering, the organization has built up nearly $1 billion in assets, making it one of the wealthiest “nonprofits” in American history, even as it has made the rest of us poorer by eliminating millions of people from our population. (For more details, see the Defunding Planned Parenthood Fact Sheet developed by the Chiaroscuro Foundation.)

I do not want to pay for abortions.  Stop making me.
