Martinsburg, WV – A slew of interesting articles came across my desk in the last week and I could not pare them down to just one or two to share. So I am going to share them all –
including links – so that you can be right on top of some major pro-life news happening right now. Of course, much of this revolves around Planned Parenthood because of the major push to permanently defund the corrupt organization of federal tax money. But you knew that.
This article shines a very big, bright light on the propaganda and rhetoric being spewed out by Planned Parenthood and their PR campaign. They want to make us all believe that they are concerned with women’s health and helping lower income women afford necessary medical assistance. However, the truth is far uglier. The truth is that Planned Parenthood is an abortion machine that first seeks to bolster their abortion quota. If you’re unsure of this certainly, read the statistics from 2009 on the number of women “helped” and exactly what services were provided. It’s eye opening. (Click here for the full article)
Whether you are pro-life or pro-abortion, one fact is clear: defunding Planned Parenthood makes good fiscal sense. There is no legitimate reason why a “non-profit” organization needs more Title X funds than any other group in the nation. In fact, most non-profits – such as the Family Policy Council of West Virginia – are supported by loyal partners that believe in our mission. If Planned Parenthood can’t raise their own support maybe they should consider that the majority of Americans don’t believe in their mission of death. As this article states:
“Even 26 percent of pro-choice adherents rejected diverting taxpayer dollars for family planning organizations that provide abortions.”
This is one aspect to the abortion issue that both sides of the aisle can agree on: no federal funding of abortion. Period. (Click here for the full article)
