Apparently there isn’t one person on the Sacramento City Council who opposes Planned Parenthood.
A recent KCRA report revealed that funds are being donated by the California council members to the abortion business; however, the money is supposed to be ear-marked for teenage mothers through a Planned Parenthood scholarship and program. The organization claims that through this program, they support 12 single mothers with a budget of $50 thousand dollars a year.
Even though Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in America, officials of the abortion giant claim they keep funding for educational programs separated from their other “services.”
Council member Angelique Ashby said, “I donated to a scholarship. The money that I gave only could go to a scholarship fund for young single moms already selected to go to college. At one point in my life, sir, that was me. So I hope that in doing so, that some of those young women grow up, love their city enough to come back, run for City Council and be the next Mayor Pro Tem of the City of Sacramento.”
As LifeNews previously reported, this was the same council member who yanked off her microphone and walked off when she was questioned by a news reporter earlier this month. But still, despite her strange response to questioning, in the council’s opinion Planned Parenthood is a great organization and is guilty of nothing. Another member, Steve Cohn, said “I believe that is a undeniably worthy community purpose. These funds do not go to abortions or other controversial programming.”
However, we know how Planned Parenthood really works and how in the past they’ve been found guilty of using tax-payer money for other purposes. For example, just last year Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast had to pay the state of Texas $4.3 million for fraudulently overbilling the taxpayer funded Medicaid program. Additionally, not only does the thriving abortion business participate in fraudulent activity, they believe they can instruct our children without parental permission. In fact, at a school in Los Angeles, Planned Parenthood provides free birth control for teens without parents’ knowledge, and at similar schools, Planned Parenthood provides the morning after pill and counseling for abortion.
So even IF (and that’s a BIG if) they don’t use the money from the Sacramento City Council fraudulently, why would they want to give an organization money that does things like cover up statutory rape, teach our teenager girls that its a-ok for their boyfriends to push them into participating in violent sex and brings in 170 million dollars in abortion income every year?
Unfortunately in 2012, the organization raked in $560.6 million dollars in taxpayer funding, which averages out to $1.5 million every day. Their breast cancer screening services dropped by 14% and their prenatal services by 32%. For every one-adoption referral that Planned Parenthood facilitated, they performed 149 abortions.
Taking this into consideration, I think it’s safe to say California citizens should be outraged that their city council members support Planned Parenthood and should contact them right away.
