According to Stephanie Simon at the Wall Street Journal, anti-abortion advocates want the government to stop sending Planned Parenthood any money because they’re already raking in the spoils of abortion whilst floating in a decadent federally funded sea of caviar and placenta. Writes Simon:
Abortion opponents are pressing state and local governments to stop sending taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood, arguing that the nonprofit group has plenty of cash and shouldn’t be granted scarce public funds at a time of economic crisis. . . . the new lobbying effort, backed by conservative Christian groups such as the Family Research Council, focuses more on economic than moral concerns. The campaign paints Planned Parenthood as a wealthy organization that doesn’t need taxpayer help. Planned Parenthood reported record revenue and a $115 million budget surplus last year, and it is building a network of elegant health centers to attract middle-class clients.
It’s just like those hoity-toity pro-choicers to vacation at “elegant” abortion health spas while everyone else in this country can’t afford to feed the children they’ve already birthed. If anyone knows of a particularly elegant clinic in the area, let me know—-I’m currently planning my holiday vacation.
