Media Release Friday 8th January 2016
The US Congress has voted to cease funding Planned Parenthood of $500 million annually. This is the first time in American history that a measure has been passed to defund Planned Parenthood of federal funding. This historic vote, 240 to 181 took place on Wednesday the 6th January.
The federal funding will now be allocated to federally qualified health centers, which provide health services to women, but are not involved in the killing of unborn children. Planned Parenthood the major abortion provider in the United States was responsible for the murder of 327,653 unborn children in 2014.
“This historic vote recognizes the many issues of a scandal-plagued organization with a long track record of abusive and potentially fraudulent billing practices, caught in authenticated undercover videos trafficking aborted babies’ body parts, and that has repeatedly failed to report the sexual abuse of girls.
President Obama is a sworn ally of Planned Parenthood and is expected to veto the bill. The bill is a significant political achievement for the pro-life movement and the Planned Parenthood scandal will now be a significant feature in the 2016 Presidential election.
This de-funding victory is an encouragement for the pro-life movement in New Zealand. Right to Life is campaigning for the government de-funding of the New Zealand Family Planning [FPA]which is a sister affiliate of Planned Parenthood. Both are affiliated to the International Planned Parenthood Federation which is at the forefront of the war on women promoting a culture of death worldwide with the tools of abortifacinet contraception, sterilisation and abortion.
Family Planning in its war against women seeks to obtain abortion licences for all of its 30 clinics which will then become killing centres. The FPA has separated procreation from sex. It promotes promiscuity supporting children having sex with whomever and whenever they choose. It provides contraception to children without their parent’s knowledge or consent. It is prepared to take young girls out of school for an abortion without the knowledge or consent of parents. It promotes contraception which has undermined marriage, promoted de facto relationships, divorce, children being born out of wedlock, abandoned solo mothers and abortions.
Parents should be aware of the plans that the FPA have for their children. They should protect their children from seductive comprehensive sex education which is being peddled in our schools and support keeping the FPA out of their schools. Parents are encouraged to support the de-funding of the FPA which receives in excess of $12 million tax payer dollars annually.
This article from the Life Issues Institute brings some disturbing news about Planned Parenthood. While its ‘services’ to women are well down its funding has been going up. What is going on?
