Pence To Stop Planned Parenthood

U.S. House Representative Mike Pence, proposed and submitted a amendment that would stop Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds. Planned Parenthood has been under investigation since they were caught on camera failing to report child victims of sexual abuse. “Legally a non-profit organization, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) depends upon $349.6 million in US tax dollars to free up other resources that sustain the financial operation of its abortion facilities. According to PPFA's financial report for 2007-2008, the abortion provider brought in total revenue of $1.038 billion and posted an $85 million profit. They performed 305,000 abortions just this past year.” Life Sites Title X funds from the Public Health Services Act has been used to organize and operate an abortion facility, but not provide abortions; according to the regulations. The Pence Amendment seeks to remove Planned Parenthood from the charities benefitting from this program and reveal the truth about the organization. PPFA is a highly lucrative company using government money to pressure poverty level and minority women into having abortions, while harboring child sex offenders. Pence has ask the house to stop providing “bloody money.”
