As many know by now, State Representative Brian Sims harassed and bullied women outside of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Philadelphia that sparked the Pro-Life Rally Against Bullying today at the same location. In between his “shame on you” screams and racist remarks, Rep. Sims said he would be donating $100 to Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania. Here’s a closer look at who they are:
Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania (PPSP)
One of three regions for Planned Parenthood (also Planned Parenthood Keystone and Planned Parenthood Western Pennsylvania)
Revenue (2017): $22,249,248 (up 13%)
Number of Abortions (2017): 8,088 abortions, 47% medical (up 2%)
Abortions performed at four locations: Philadelphia (2) – Locust Street (which has failed 13 of last 23 state inspections), Comly Road, West Chester, Norristown
Taxpayer-Funded: $1,788,823 (2017)
Since 2012, taxpayers have been forced to send them over $11.7 million.
Money Spent to Lobby for Pro-Abortion Politics: $595,517 (2017)
PPSP spent over half a million in 2017 to “shape public policy at the local, state and federal levels” which means they “fought bills restricting access to abortion services in PA. A 20-week ban was vetoed by Governor Wolf. Another bill that would ban abortion in the case of a Down syndrome diagnosis made its way through the House and a Senate committee, and a bill to ban abortion after 6 weeks was introduced. We engaged with elected officials about these issues and Planned Parenthood services in general.”
You, as a taxpayer, helped give Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania nearly two million dollars in 2017 at the same time they spent over half a million lobbying against legislation to stop late-term abortion and abortions solely based on a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
Extreme politicians like Rep. Sims that bully taxpayers and teens are pledging to donate to the largest abortion provider in Pennsylvania, Planned Parenthood.
