It’s been 1,350 days since the Senate passed a budget, but the checks to Planned Parenthood keep flowing! While American companies suffer, business at Cecile Richards’s group couldn’t be better. According to the organization’s latest annual report (FY 2011-12), it looks like the government helped Planned Parenthood to another record year. For the second time in as many years, Richards’s “nonprofit” is celebrating more than a billion dollars in total revenue–and almost half of it came courtesy of U.S. taxpayers.
Fox News crunched the numbers and was shocked to find that government support for Planned Parenthood had jumped by 167% in the last 10 years alone. Of course, as more states aggressively step in to defund Planned Parenthood, the Left has been just as aggressive in filling the gap. They claim the money helps women, but based on this report, Planned Parenthood was too busy reelecting President Obama to help anyone! Cancer screenings (the theme of Richards’s incessant election ads) dropped by a stunning 29% in 2011-12, and contraception services slumped 12%. Of course, the number of mammograms performed at Planned Parenthood stayed the same: zero.
