Defunding Planned Parenthood has been a hot issue in the recent weeks, mainly due to an undercover video of a Planned Parenthood office director coaching prospective clients how they can obtain their services even though they identified themselves as underage sex traffickers.

These stings are done by a brave young woman, Lila Rose and her organization, Live Action; she has appeared on many media outlets, here is a clip from the O’Rielly Factor: Click here to watch it.
I recently wrote my Senator, Dianne Feinstein of California, to ask her to vote for the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Her response was very predictable; she repeated the hackneyed and trite mantra that Planned Parenthood offers so many other servicers such as birth control pills that “prevent unwanted pregnancies” and for that reason she favors taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood. The facts are that, although Planned Parenthood does offer such services, their meat and butter is abortion, so the $363 millions dollars they receive from taxpayers go to kill innocent unborn babies. There are approximately 1.5 million abortions done per year in the United States. In Los Angeles County, where I live, there are 154 abortions performed every day from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM. Why should we who believe that an abortion is the killing of an unborn human being, be forced to pay for this atrocity? Non abortion services, with the exception of birth control, are provided by the many pregnancy Help Centers around the county. Not one penny is given to them for this. If Senator Feinstein believes that this is a good idea why not subsidize these centers? She would refuse to fund these centers, why? They really believe in abortion; a two year-old can figure this out. We, as moral people, have a duty to vote all of these people out of office.
In her new book, Unplanned, The dramatic true story of a former Planned Parenthood Director, Abby Johnson details how Planned Parenthood depends on abortions to meet their bottom line. One of the most dramatic parts of her book is when she details this fact. Her regional directors called a meeting and stated that each office had to produce a certain amount of cash flow – they were expected to produce results. The only way to make such money was to increase the number of abortions performed, so if an office did abortion, say only two days a week, they were expected to do more abortions.
The political left will always tell you that they are tolerant. Tolerant? Mention something they disagree with, such as marriage is only between a man and a woman or abortion and see how tolerant they are. The fact is they are tolerant of anything they believe in such as moral relativism. If you say that you believe that the Bible, for instance, as your moral guide, they will laugh at you. Tolerant? No. They are the least tolerant people I know.
