Yes, you read that right. Nearly a half-billion dollars went to Planned Parenthood in one year:
According to its latest annual report, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) received $487.4 million in tax dollars over a twelve-month period and performed 329,455 abortions.
Previous Planned Parenthood annual reports showed total funding from “government grants and contracts” (which were $363.2 million in 2009), while this year’s report also accounts for payments from Medicaid managed care plans among the payments the group receives from government.
When compared with previous annual reports, the latest one shows an almost steady increase in the number of abortions performed at its clinics: In 2006, Planned Parenthood did 289,750 abortions; in 2007, it did 305,310; in 2009, it did 331,796; and, in 2010, it did 329,445 — a small decrease from the previous year.
Planned Parenthood will say that the money it receives from us – the tax payers – does not go to pay for abortions. PP is playing a game of Three-Card Monte. In its full form, Three-Card Monte is a classic short con in which a shill (Planned Parenthood) pretends to conspire with the mark (that’s us) to cheat the dealer (the government), while in fact conspiring with the dealer to cheat the mark. The money PP receives from “we the tax payers” frees up money that PP gets from other sources to pay for their abortion facilities.
Here’s the sad part. The people most affected by this con are the people who vote for politicians who support PP and use our money to kill their children. Blacks are most affected by PP that got started when Margaret Sanger opened the country’s first birth-control clinic. Sanger founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, which in 1942 became part of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Since then, Planned Parenthood has grown to have over 820 clinic locations in the U.S.
In 1939 Sanger started “The Negro Project.” She called on black preachers to support sterilization:
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
Some black leaders, including Jesse Jackson at one time, described abortion as “black genocide.”
Here’s what Jesse Jackson said about abortion in 1977: “Those advocates of taking life prior to birth do not call it killing or murder, they call it abortion. They further never talk about aborting a baby because that would imply something human. Rather they talk about aborting the fetus. Fetus sounds less than human and therefore abortion can be justified.”
Here are a few statistics that African Americans might not be aware of:
- Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 Blacks were lynched in the U.S. That number is surpassed in less than 3 days by abortion.
- 1,452 African-American children are killed each day by abortion.
- 3 out of 5 pregnant African-American women will abort their child.
- Since 1973 there have been over 13 million Black children killed and their mothers victimized by the U.S. abortion industry.1
How long do you think abortion would be legal in America if Blacks actually thought about the long-term consequences of this government-supported act designed to eliminate them and other undesirables as “human weeds”? I wonder how many Blacks knew the disproportionate statistics before they voted for Obama and his radical proactive pro-abortion views. I wonder how many upper class Blacks knew it and voted for him because of his views on abortion and because they disdain lower class Blacks except when they vote to keep them in office.
