Abortion records: a legacy no one wants

by Sarah CrawfordTuesday, January 08, 2013

Planned Parenthood has set a new record – and not a good one. 

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has out done itself by committing a record 333,964 abortions on preborn children in the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
 
That number is accompanied by the ever-rising flow of taxpayer dollars to the abortion giant.  The total amount United States taxpayers forked over for the deadly business in 2011-2012 topped the charts at $542.4 million, a jump from the previous year’s $538.5 million. 
 
In the annual report, Planned Parenthood still claims that abortion services account for only 3 percent of overall services.  But with the average cost of an abortion estimated at $450, those 333,964 children killed awarded Planned Parenthood with a staggering $150 million – 27 percent of the women’s health center’s annual profits. 
 
The fact that American taxpayers are forced to prop-up an abortion business that has ended the lives of nearly one million preborn children in the last three years is a tragedy.
 
As the fortieth anniversary of state-sanctioned child-killing nears, the time has come for the federal government to take a long look at what kind of legacy will be left for future generations to bear.
 
With hopeful hearts, and just three days into the 113th Congress, Pro-Life stalwarts already introduced the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, a bill that will cut off abortion businesses and their affiliates from receiving Title X funding.
 
But with 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenue coming from the federal government, the organization is on a path to become a state-sponsored abortion enterprise.  And for the abortion zealots in the Congressional and Executive Branches, they seem determined to let the killing of innocent children continue to be their legacy.
