Abortion Advocates Received $1.5 Billion Dollars in Taxpayer Funds in Three Years


Ending Taxpayer Support to Abortion Advocates At the request of Congress, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently released a report which details federal funding for six abortion advocacy groups for a three year period between 2010-2012. The report is shocking. According to the GAO, Planned Parenthood and its affiliates received $344.5 million in federal funds and another $1.2 billion in funding from Medicaid (which includes a combination of federal and state funds) for a total of $1.5 billion over three years from federal programs.
I have been working since I came to Congress to protect the rights of all Americans – including the rights of the unborn. I believe in my heart and mind that life begins at conception, and as a Member of Congress, I have long-supported pro-life legislation.  For example, I recently cosponsored the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act (H.R. 217), introduced by Congresswoman Diane Black (R-TN), which would end Title X grants for “health care” providers, such as Planned Parenthood, that perform abortions.
