Follow the Money: Center for Reproductive Rights


This week’s Follow the Money article in RedState takes a look at the Center for Reproductive Rights and how they promote the advancement of abortion on a global scale as a ‘fundamental human right’.

Just recently, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Texas law known as H.B. 2 that provides for the regulation of abortion clinics in the same manner as other healthcare facilities in the state. Other states have enacted similar measures, including Tennessee, which passed a constitutional amendment last November affirming the role of the state legislature on this issue.

However, the lawsuit in last week’s ruling was brought by a different party: the Center for Reproductive Rights. While this organization may not be as familiar as pro-abortion giants such as Planned Parenthood and NARAL, the Center has a concerning track record of litigation aimed at preventing the implementation of Pro-Life legislation and other common sense regulations since its founding in 1992.

Language on the group’s website like “working with federal and state lawmakers in the U.S. to promote progressive policies” leaves little doubt as to the philosophy behind the advocacy. Obviously, the legal work and lobbying activities come with a hefty price tag. The latest Annual Report shows operating expenses from Fiscal Year 2014 reaching almost $19 million and that the Center brought in over $24 million in the same time frame.
