Should the U.S. be borrowing money from China to pay for abortions? When Planned Parenthood released its 2011-2012 Annual Report, it became apparent that the world’s largest abortion provider has increased its abortion numbers and decreased its other healthcare services (which do NOT include mammograms) all while receiving more than half a billion tax dollars! And with the current debt level, the argument can be made that our government is literally borrowing money from China to pay Planned Parenthood. For a good discussion of this issue, watch this Fox News video.
Moreover, while PP got a record number of tax dollars in its most recent fiscal year, providing almost half the abortion giant’s budget, the report also shows that PP has a surplus of funds amounting to more than $1 billion!
Years ago, Congressman Henry Hyde passed an amendment forbidding tax funding for abortions. But, according to Tennessee Congressman Diane Black (R), Planned Parenthood is circumventing the law through Title X federally funded grants and purposely misusing taxpayer dollars. She has introduced H.R. 217 to eliminate this “end run” which PP has been making. The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act would stop all taxpayer funding for abortion providers, such as Planned Parenthood, to ensure that these taxpayer dollars are used for its intended purpose: women’s health.

Many companies and corporations contribute substantial funds to Planned Parenthood. A pro-life group, Life Decisions International, has researched those companies and soon will publish the list of both companies and non-profits which financially support PP. As a member of Life Decisions International, the Kansans for Life organization is offering this list for a $5.00 donation. To order a copy so that you will know if companies you frequent are contributing to PP, send an e-mail to [email protected] and KFL will bill you for the list. Questions?

Contact your Congressional Representative and ask that he/she support Rep. Black’s bill, H.R. 217 — The Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act — when it reaches the floor of the House. Defunding this abortion giant is the most direct way of beheading the Hydra which is Planned Parenthood!
China’s “Abort Girls” Policy Reconsidered,
But Practice Now Spreading to U.S.A.
For more than 30 years, China has officially “allowed” only one child per family. This has resulted in a disproportionate abortion or abandonment of infant girls. The brutal one-child policy covers 63 percent of the country’s population and Beijing says it has averted 400 million births (read averted as aborted). It is now being recognized in some circles as an impediment to economic growth and the cause of many social problems. For instance, China’s labor force, currently about 930 million, is projected to begin declining by about 10 million a year beginning in about a dozen years. Additionally, the country’s elderly population will rise from 200 million currently to about 360 million by 2030. Gu Baochang, a demography professor at Renmin University, warns, “If this goes on, there will be no taxpayers, no workers and no caregivers for the elderly.”
There are, however, signs that perhaps the repressive Chinese government will begin to ease the one-child policy by gradually allowing some couples to have two children.
Unfortunately, the idea of gender–selection abortion has made its way into our country, and while four states currently prohibit such abortions, the laws are often ignored by abortion mills and are not banned in other states. Watch a revealing undercover video here.
