Letter to the Editor

Online petition against Planned Parenthood

Sunday, May 1, 2011

To the Editor:

Planned Parenthood aborts (kills) a precious American baby every 96 seconds and receives $11 every second from our tax dollars.

Thus, every 96 seconds, Americans pay Planned Parenthood $1,056 to kill one of our innocent American babies, in addition charges the mother approximately $450 to kill her own baby.

The "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act," a bipartisan bill sponsored by Reps. Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Dan Lipinski (D-Ill.) would create a government-wide statutory prohibition on abortion funding, including problematic provisions in the health care bill.

The "Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act" ensures that organizations, including Planned Parenthood, do not receive federal dollars under the Title X federal family planning assistance program. According to the Government Accountability Office, abortion providers have received more than a billion dollars in the past seven years alone.

I signed a petition at www.StopAbortionFunding.com to let my representative in Congress know that I expect them to co-sponsor and vote for these two bills. I should not have to be complicit in the destruction of innocent human life when I pay my taxes.
