Report: Planned Parenthood Spent $650+ Million in Taxpayer Funds

It’s as bad as we’ve always known.

Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report showing from 2002 to 2009, Planned Parenthood spent $657,100,000 in federal funds.

What have they been doing with that money?

In 2007 alone (the most recent year for which there is data available) Planned Parenthood Federation of America reported that its abortion clinics conducted over 305,000 abortions—compared to a meager 4,912 adoptions referrals and 10,914 prenatal clients reported the same year.

“The GAO report is one more piece of conclusive evidence showing that, while Planned Parenthood claims to offer women choices, it only offers one: abortion,” said SBA List President Marjorie Dannenfelser.

“The name ‘Planned Parenthood’ is a misnomer.  These findings reveal, once again, that under the guise of ‘helping women,’ Planned Parenthood’s core mission is the promotion of a procedure that holds devastating consequences for women and the unborn.  Time and time again voters have said they do not want their tax dollars supporting this industry, yet Members of Congress defy their constituents by voting to channel tax dollars to abortion providers, like Planned Parenthood.  Women, the unborn and the American people deserve better than this.”
