So it turns out a good chunk of Warren Buffet’s money is going to fund Planned Parenthood. Read about it here.
That’s not really that surprising. What is a little troubling, however, is the rising productivity at Planned Parenthood. The Catholic News Agency reports:
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America recently released its annual report for 2004-05, which shows that it took in more total money ($882 million), more government money ($272.7 million) and more clinic money ($346.8 million) than ever before.
In addition, the report shows that Planned Parenthood continued to make money last year – $63 million. The additional profits for last year brings the total profits of Planned Parenthood to $649.6 million since 1987. The total net assets of the company are now at $784.1 million – $478.7 million of which are in cash or investments.
So, the money is poring in for a “pro-choice” group that is anything but supportive of choice:
Planned Parenthood also set other records last year for the lowest number of women it referred for adoption compared with the number of abortions it performed.
Planned Parenthood performed a record number of abortions – 255,015. The annual report shows it performed 180 abortions for every one woman it sent to an adoption agency.
And even if you are pro-death, you should see a problem with this part of the article:
Jim Sedlak, the director of STOPP International, a Planned Parenthood watchdog group, compiled data from Planned ParenthoodÂs annual reports. He said he was surprised the abortion business continued to ask for state and federal taxpayer dollars despite receiving record income from foundations and other groups.
Since 1987, Planned Parenthood has received a total of $3.9 billion in taxpayers’ money, Sedlak stated.
Don’t forget: UNC is an integral part of this “success.” Health services and the women center refer women to planned parenthood regularly. Read about it here.
