    TULSA, Oklahoma, April 12, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — An Oklahoma mother allowed her daughter to go on an educational field trip only to have her return with a three-year chemical contraceptive implant inside her arm.

But Youth Services of Tulsa is part of the Tulsa Area Teen Pregnancy Prevention Collaborative, whose PregNOT program began in 2010 with $1.5 million in tax funding from the Obama Health and Human Services' Office of Adolescent Health....

  • 3 ways taxpayers are funding abortion at Planned Parenthood

    Its no secret that taxpayers are footing the bill for abortion giant Planned Parenthood, despite claims that taxpayer dollars are not being used to subsidize the group and its activities. Here are three ways Planned Parenthood is benefiting at the expense of the American taxpayer.1. State fundingCurrently, 17 states directly fund elective abortions under Medicaid, the federal health care program for low income Americans. The Guttmacher Institute reports that Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia, use public funding to pay for abortion procedures.While the 1976 Hyde Amendment prevents federal taxpayer dollars from funding abortions through Medicaid—with the exception of...

    The Obama administration has punished the state of Kansas for cutting taxpayer funds for the Planned Parenthood abortion business by cutting its federal Title X funding by the same amount. The moves comes at the same time the abortion giant is facing intense criticism over its sales of aborted babies and their body parts. In 2011, pro-life Governor Sam Brownback signed a bill signed into law a bill that would shift funding away from the Planned Parenthood abortion business and stops abortion funding in health insurance programs. The Kansas Senate passed the measure on a 28-10 vote and the state...

    (CNSNews.com) -- House Republicans are pushing a budget proposal that cuts funding from Title X, the national family planning program enacted by former President Richard Nixon in 1970, because it allocates federal funds to abortion providers such as Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood is the largest recipient of Title X funding, and also the nation’s largest abortion provider. The organization has been vocal about its opposition to the 2016 Fiscal Year budget proposal released by the House Appropriations Labor-Health and Human Services Subcommittee on Tuesday. Section 229 of the budget bill states that: “None of the funds appropriated in this Act...

    NEW ORLEANS, July 29, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In the wake of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast's (PPGC) $1.4 million Medicaid fraud settlement with the state of Texas, two state pro-life organizations have called for Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal to end all state funding to PPGC. The abortion provider operates two facilities in the state, which received $575,000 in taxpayer funds from the Louisiana's Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) during the 2012 fiscal year. The Planned Parenthood affiliate agreed last Wednesday to refund Texas Medicaid $1.4 million in fraud for overbilling, billing for services it never rendered, and falsifying medical records...

    Chris Kahlenborn, M.D., respected internist and founder/president of The Polycarp Research Institute, writes (slightly edited): I like Rick Santorum a lot. I like his family values. I like his persistence. And I love his love for unborn children, especially those with genetic problems. However, I do have a problem with his inconsistency regarding Title X funding. Mr. Santorum has publicly stated that he believes contraception harms women and families; and that Plan B may act as an abortifacient. He has also stated that he supported, and still supports, Title X funding to family planning agencies that supply both oral contraceptives...

    LUFKIN, TEXAS, February 15, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Congressional investigation into Planned Parenthood that touched off the controversy over Susan G. Komen’s funding of the abortion giant may soon expand into a series of national hearings in the nation’s capital and court cases around the country that could expose hundreds of millions of dollars of financial impropriety, critics say. Karen Reynolds, a decade-long employee of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast (PPGC) in Texas, has filed a lawsuit claiming 12 Planned Parenthood mills in Texas and Louisiana bilked the government by billing medical agencies for services that were unnecessary or that were...
  • Pro-life Santorum voted for govt subsidies to Planned Parenthood

    The taxpayer-subsidized abortion mill, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, received $487.4 million in tax dollars over a 12-month period and performed 329,455 abortions. While he was in the U.S. Senate representing Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, a pro-life Roman Catholic, had voted to fund indirectly (through title X family planning) Planned Parenthood clinics. Santorum also voted in favor of HR 796, the Abortion Clinic Access Bill; his was a “key vote”. HR 796 sought to amend the federal criminal code to prohibit actions directed at clinics which perform abortion procedures, or at those persons attempting to access these clinics. He also enthusiastically...

The agency's just-released annual report shows a total income of more than three-quarters of a billion dollars -- $288 million in clinic operations, $254 million in taxpayer money, and $228 million in donations. The report also indicates the abortion mill made more than $36 million in profits...

    GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum is under fire in South Carolina for touting his alleged pro-life beliefs but voting to subsidize abortion and Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortions in America, while serving in the U.S. Senate. He has also backed pro-abortion candidates and voted for legislation that is being used to federally prosecute peaceful pro-life protesters who demonstrate outside of abortion clinics. Critics are outraged.The once top-tier Republican candidate, who surged into the spotlight after an unexpected strong finish in Iowa before a disastrous showing in New Hampshire, defended himself against the attacks by lashing out at fellow...

    If Planned Parenthood were really suffering financially, do you think the organization could afford to spend $100,000 on tweets? Jill Stanek did some digging and found out that America's biggest abortion group is so desperate that it's paying people to follow them on Twitter. As a new form of advertising, the social media execs are offering "promoted tweets," where companies can pay to have their messages listed with users. Back in September, the Wall Street Journal reported Twitter was selling the 140-character messages for $100,000 each. Planned Parenthood has paid for two. Obviously, the abortion giant is more interested in...

    Planned Parenthood is closing six clinics in outstate Minnesota on Aug. 1 because of federal budget cuts made this spring in a highly politicized abortion battle. The state's largest provider of family planning and abortions announced the closures Monday, citing an 11 percent reduction in its budget because of cuts to the federal Title X program. Closing are clinics in Thief River Falls, Brainerd, Red Wing, Owatonna, Albert Lea and Fairmont. They did not perform abortions, but provided services ranging from contraception to cervical cancer screenings to testing for sexually-transmitted diseases. Clients will be encouraged to use any of the...

    In a new Republican effort to cut off funding to Planned Parenthood, a new spending proposal announced Wednesday would strip away all Title X family planning funds for low-income individuals. The seven-month continuing resolution offered by House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) would remove all $327 million from the Title X program as the GOP pushes a bill that would block such funding to Planned Parenthood and other groups that offer abortion services. Planned Parenthood called it an "extreme proposal." “Unbelievably, the House Leadership has set its sights on abolishing a program that provides lifesaving and preventive care to millions...

    If you call yourself a concerned citizen you should be outraged – I sure am. Now at a time of fiscal crisis when Washington should be tightening its belt and limiting its budget to the essentials, it has proposed an increase in funding (to the tune of $10 million) to an already expensive and dubious program dubbed “Title X”. In the 2010 proposed budget the President wants the tax payer to spend a whopping $327 million in total on “family planning” which includes direct funds to abortions here in the United States and globally, and direct funds to highly controversial...
