Live Action Highlights Planned Parenthood’s “Money Laundering” Non-Profit Scheme

We recently urged 2ndVote followers to only support real charities. Yesterday, Live Action released a short report highlighting the — to quote the report — “Money Laundering Scheme” that is Planned Parenthood.

From the report:

At the same time Planned Parenthood’s political efforts try to ensure more and more taxpayer dollars keep flowing to it, many of Planned Parenthood’s services and its clients are declining. A look at the numbers shows that in the last 10 years of Planned Parenthood’s annual reporting (2006-2016),

• clients have decreased 23 percent (3.1 million in 2006 vs. 2.4 million in 2016);
• it closed 260 facilities (860 facilities in 2006 vs. 600 facilities in 2016);
• breast exams have decreased by 62 percent;
• cervical cancer screenings have decreased by 74 percent; and
• contraception services have decreased by 32 percent.

Yet while many services have decreased over the last 10 years, Planned Parenthood’s abortion numbers are up by 11 percent (to over 320,000 babies each year) and—shockingly—taxpayer funding has skyrocketed from $336 million to $543 million a year in 2016.

Doing less service to patients and getting more tax dollars isn’t enough for Planned Parenthood. Live Action highlights the abortion giant’s well-financed political activism. Their goal is simple: to increase abortion access across the country.

Planned Parenthood is just one of many examples which show the scam that is the U.S. federal non-profit “charity” system. Despite killing unborn children and hiding the abuse of minors, they receive more money than ever from U.S. governments. Meanwhile, many real charities such as adoption centers have been forced to close because governments wanted to force them to promote the LGBT agenda. Planned Parenthood’s most hated foes — pro-life pregnancy resource centers — help abortion-vulnerable women…and the vast majority are entirely privately funded.

As Benjamin Kraft of Life Advancement Group told us, “Out of all of the pregnancy centers that we work with, one key truth is shared: their commitment to providing essential services to women in need, all for free. Contrast this with Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer-funded business model, which generates hundreds of millions of dollars off of women in dire need.”

Live Action’s report draws attention to a well-known but largely ignored fact: Planned Parenthood does less good, and more bad, with more money from taxpayers. It’s long past time for Congress and state legislatures to yank their funding.

    I got very involved in the pro-life movement over 25 years ago. During the time we were working to get “The Woman’s Right to Know” amendment passed in Colorado (everywhere it was passed abortions declined over 33%) we found during our research that Banned Parenthood had raked in over $6 BILLION world wide. When a philanthropist donated sonograms to our pro-life centers across the country, Banned parenthood went into a melt-down and desperately tried to paint Life Centers as “too incompetent” to operate such equipment. Translation: We don’t want our walking dollar signs to see that it’s really a human being.” The history of Banned Parenthood is as evil as can be and was started by Margaret Sanger who believe in eugenics…”cleansing” of the race. The first Banned Parenthood was located in a poor Slavic neighborhood. According to Sanger “minorities are noxious weeds to be eradicated.” She also consorted with the likes of Hitler and eagerly joined in putting together a “playbook” of the most efficient ways to eradicate the Jewish people. Sanger is the one who Hillary Clinton “admired” so much…She put out a monthly magazine of sorts full of “pithy” statements like “The best thing a large family can do with a new baby is kill it.” It is no “planned” parenthood…

        Seeing her on occasion, on the bench, I can’t help but sometimes wonder if she’s a cardboard cut out…also radically supportive of abortion…

          And lowering the age of consent to 12. And she and Elena Kagan refused to recuse themselves as REQUIRED BY LAW, from hearing the same-sex “marriage” case.

          They each had a clear conflict of interest, having both officiated at a same-sex “wedding”.

            Indeed…and what I find really alarming and sickening is that banned parenthood a few years back was going into classrooms with children in 1st. and 2nd. grades showing graphic films….of course this was in California. I believe they were also behind the push to get “sex education” in high schools. Teenage years, out of control hormones…teen pregnancy and voila… more clients to fill the coffers. The tragedy is that parents have relegated their parental obligations to literal strangers. Samuel Adams made a statement so long ago that still rings true and clear: “When a nation forgets it’s God, tyrants soon forge their chains”….chains come in all kinds.
