Report Comes as Biden & Harris Force Taxpayers to Bankroll the Big Abortion Industry
Washington, D.C. – Today the national pro-life group Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) responded to Planned Parenthood’s 2019-20 Annual Report:
“Planned Parenthood’s business is abortion, not health care. At a time when U.S. abortions overall have long been on the decline, Planned Parenthood is ending the lives of more than 354,000 unborn children a year,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser. “With Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the White House, we can expect this alarming trend to continue as Democrats seek to force taxpayers to bankroll abortion businesses at home and abroad, roll back FDA safety regulations on dangerous abortion drugs, and convert every pharmacy and post office into an abortion center – reversing decades of pro-life progress. The pro-life movement will work tirelessly to expose the Democrats’ extremism on abortion. We will never quit fighting to stop taxpayer funding of the abortion industry and provide the life-affirming alternatives women and families deserve.”
Chuck Donovan, President of SBA List’s research arm, Charlotte Lozier Institute, added:
“It’s a tragedy that abortions continue to increase at Planned Parenthood even as they decline all across the country. Women are paying a heavy price for this very wealthy organization to achieve its quotas and goals. Trends like this are exactly why Congress has limited family planning grants to exclude them from going to programs where abortion is a method of family planning. This is exactly the situation the American people have always strived to avoid.”
A Marist/Knights of Columbus poll released last month found that 58% of Americans – including 65% of Independents and nearly one third of Democrats – oppose using taxpayer money to fund abortions in the United States.
SBA List is a network of 900,000 pro-life Americans nationwide, dedicated to ending abortion by electing national leaders and advocating for laws that save lives, with a special calling to promote pro-life women leaders.
