As Students for Life of America just illustrated in our recent poll, by about a 3 to 1 margin Millennials said they preferred that their tax monies go to Federally Qualified Health Centers rather than the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. Let’s make that happen,” said SFLA’s Kristan Hawkins.
WASHINGTON D.C. (1-21-19) –Responding to news of Planned Parenthood’s quiet release of its annual report, Students for Life of America President Kristan Hawkins made the following comments: “The big business of abortion is evident in this report, as Planned Parenthood turned a profit of nearly $250 million, a150% increase, according to its own accounts. What a waste of taxpayer dollars. As Students for Life of America just illustrated in our recent poll, by about a 3 to 1 margin Millennials said they preferred that their tax monies go to Federally Qualified Health Centers rather than the abortion giant, Planned Parenthood. Let’s make that happen and defund Planned Parenthood to invest in life-saving care.”
“While Planned Parenthood pushes talking points about healthcare, the fact remains that Planned Parenthood is the nation’s number one abortion vendor, profiting by violently ending life. But pregnancy is not a disease cured by abortion. Women deserve real, life-affirming care, and taxpayers deserve a return on their investment that helps women and their children, born and preborn.”
Highlights from the report include:
* Abortions increased by over 3%
*Adoption referrals dropped by more than 25%
*Planned Parenthood does one adoption referral for every 117 abortions
