American Taxpayers Forced To Send $1.5 Billion to Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinics

Two years ago, pro-life members of Congress requested a report on what pro-Abortion advocacy groups were receiving taxpayer dollars. ┬áThat report was just released[1], and the findings are shocking…

The six organizations researched were Planned Parenthood, Population Council, International Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Guttmacher Institute, Advocates for Youth and Sexuality Information and Education Council of the United States.

The report found the Planned Parenthood abortion corporation and its affiliates received $344.5 million in federal funds and another $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid (which includes a combination of federal and state funds) for a total of $1.5 billion over three years from federal programs. The abortion fiant receives $1.2 billion from Medicaid, $201 million from the Title X family planning program $40.6 million from Title XX Social Services block grants and $25.9 million from the Title V Maternal and Child health Services block grant.

Planned Parenthood receives per year, on average, about half a billion a year in taxpayer funds. ┬áRep. Diane Black (R-TN) finds it to me a sad irony that this study would be released, “…when Senate Democrats are working against[3] human trafficking and Medicare bills that continue the longstanding Hyde Amendment aimed at prohibiting federal funding of abortions.”
