Many Republicans made campaign promises to defund Planned Parenthood, saying it was not right or ethical for taxpayers to be subsiding a company that murders so many innocent unborn children.
In 2016, the baby butchers received $543.7 million and in 2017, the funding was increased to $554.6 million. Our taxpayer dollars make up about 40% of Planned Parenthood’s total budget. While figures are not readily available, reports indicate that under Republican budget deals, Planned Parenthood will continue to receive at least half a billion dollars of taxpayer money so they can continue to commit First-degree murder and then profit by selling baby parts like a butcher shop.

Congressional Republicans failed to make good on their campaign promises to end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood in their latest rounds of contentious negotiations with Democrats, which largely focused on military spending and immigration. Despite controlling both houses of Congress and House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R., Wis.) 2017 pledge to defund the organization, Republicans were unable to implement plans to redirect taxpayer dollars to local community health centers that do not provide abortions.
Taxpayers sent $543.7 million to Planned Parenthood last year, down from $554.6 million in 2016, and government funding accounted for about 40 percent of its $1.46 billion revenue stream, according to its annual report. Private contributions to the group have skyrocketed in recent years as it collected $532.7 million in donations in 2017, an $87 million increase from the year before…
Republican voters need to make protecting the unborn a high priority because these innocent ones cannot stand up and speak for themselves. Voters also need to remember this when they go to the polls this year for the midterm primary elections. If you incumbent broke his or her promise to defund Planned Parenthood, then vote for someone who will.
