Several candidates are listed on their site as pro-life, including Senator Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Governor Mitt Romney.
Fortunately, the Hyde Amendment of 1977 is still in existence, which allows abortion only in certain circumstances for women on Medicare, which technically means taxpayer money is not completely funding abortions; however, 46 percent of Planned Parenthoods annual budget does come from the United States government through grants and reimbursements.
