What we want this Tax Day
In 2017, we’ve already seen a huge turnaround in U.S. taxpayer funding of abortion:
- In January, President Trump signed an executive order banning taxpayer funding for abortions overseas.
- This month, he cut off U.S. taxpayer funding of the United Nations Population Fund because it “supports or participates in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”
- Last week, the President signed legislation overturning former President Obama’s rule forcing states to fund the abortion industry under Title X.
Already, taxpayer funding of abortion has changed dramatically under this new administration. For that, we thank both President Trump and Congress!
But despite all of these changes, the abortion industry is still consuming a whopping sum of over half a billion taxpayer dollars every year.
In 2015, Planned Parenthood received $553.7 million in taxpayer funding (about 42% of their revenue) all while performing 323,999 abortions—about 1/3 of total abortions in the U.S.
This Tax Day, we are urgently calling on Congress once again to prioritize the de-funding of Planned Parenthood. It is unconscionable that our government continues to funnel our hard-earned dollars to an organization whose top directors were caught on camera discussing the trade of aborted children’s hearts, livers, and lungs.
Join us in taking a stand this Tax Day against the over-bloated abortion industry! Tax Day might hurt your wallet—but it definitely shouldn’t hurt unborn children.
