The U.S. government just released its own accounting of, among other things, the $1.3 billion federal taxpayer dollars allocated to Planned Parenthood from 2013–2015. This U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) report confirms Planned Parenthood received enough federal funds to effectively pay for every abortion they performed in the U.S. from 2013–2015, and that millions in federal funds allocated to Planned Parenthood’s international affiliate, International Planned Parenthood Federation, were directly available to fund abortions abroad. Additionally, federal funds may have aided in the illegal sale of fetal tissue in California.
The GAO report confirms what we have been saying all along: It is time to hold Planned Parenthood and its allies accountable and end their federal funding. Providing for women’s healthcare is vitally important, but Planned Parenthood is not the only option; there are better alternatives that will use these dollars for actual women’s healthcare rather than abortions. The evidence is all right there in black and white.
