Nationwide protests against Planned Parenthood were held Saturday in the wake of the release of vile videos showing PP executives coolly haggling over prices in the calculated harvesting and sale of pre-born baby body parts. Pro-Life activists demonstrated at a reported 320 clinics across the country.
In Phoenix hundreds of protestors heard Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, U.S. Reps. Trent Franks and David Schweikert as well as AZ GOP Chairman Robert Graham speak out against the gruesome practices that are funded by tax dollars funneled to the abortion mills of Planned Parenthood by the federal government. Protests took place in several other Valley cities, including Chandler, Tempe and Glendale.
“We call on Congress to end federal funding for Planned Parenthood,” declared Montgomery.
CNS News, citing numbers from Planned Parenthood’s Annual Report, reports PP’s net revenue increased 5% to a total of $1.21 Billion in its organizational fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013. About 45% of that revenue —- $540.6 million —- was provided by taxpayer-funded government ‘health services” grants. Breitbart News’ “Planned Parenthood Annual Report: All About Abortions and Profits,” contains updated 2014 information.
Although Planned Parenthood is the nation’s largest abortion provider, it cloaks itself as a women’s health care organization.
Seeing Red AZ posted “Planned Parenthood’s gruesome realities“ in mid-July, revealing the death industry’s deeply embedded roots in Arizona.
The Center for Medical Progress, which released the Planned Parenthood exposés, is to be commended for bringing the macabre truths of this monstrous industry to light via these videos.
It’s past time for the taxpayer-funded money spigot to be turned off.
