Governor Wolf just headlined a roundtable discussion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Warminster – which does more than 900 abortions each year. As reported, the event was held by Planned Parenthood Keystone – one of their three regions in Pennsylvania – and national Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards was right by our Governor’s side. The discussion centered on fighting against proposals to defund Planned Parenthood “both on the federal and state levels.”
Planned Parenthood Keystone made a net profit of over $621k in their last reporting year with over 25% of their revenue coming from government grants – i.e. your tax dollars.
So let’s put this equation together:
Governor Wolf & Cecile Richards push pro-abortion politics at a Planned Parenthood facility in PA
Event organized by Planned Parenthood Keystone, which is funded, in part, by taxpayers
Taxpayers are funding Planned Parenthood’s political activities.
Governor Wolf advocating for pro-abortion politics in Planned Parenthood’s own clinics that continue to receive taxpayer funding is yet another example of you and every Pennsylvania taxpayer being forced into helping their pro-abortion political activity.
THIS MUST END. It’s time Planned Parenthood fights for their own agenda without the help of taxpayers across Pennsylvania.
The leading abortion business in Pennsylvania and nationally does not deserve our taxpayer dollars. Here are two ways to encourage your elected officials to take action:
1) State level: SB300, introduced by State Senator John Eichelberger, would prioritize current taxpayer dollars to first be directed to the many community health centers that offer better comprehensive women’s health care than Planned Parenthood. (Remember, women can’t even get prenatal care at a Planned Parenthood in Pennsylvania). Tell your State Senator and State Representative to support SB300 today – click here to use our action alert to send your elected officials an email.
***SB300 is on the agenda for the Senate Finance Committee on Wednesday, April 26. Please contact your State Senator before to voice your support for SB300.
2) Federal level: Encourage your Congressman to do all they can to stop funding Planned Parenthood, especially in any health care reform measure. Here’s a one-page fact sheet summarizing the need for defunding Planned Parenthood at the federal level.
