How You Are Subsidizing Depravity
By LUKE HAMILTON
It is hard to know where your tax dollars are being spent. For one thing, there are more tax dollars to keep tabs on with an increasing tax burden and dozens of new levies each year. There is also a concerted effort to hide the specifics of government expenditure amidst endless reams of information, designed to provide cover for pork-hungry politicians. There are a number of independent watchdog organizations which do a valiant job of parsing the data and painting as accurate a picture as possible, but we’ll never fully grasp everything that we are funding. Odds are that for every initiative designed to benefit American business owners or strengthen our workforce, there are dozens of programs designed to train Chinese prostitutes to drink responsibly, give home-owner tax credits to individuals who don’t own a home, or create a video game designed to help people relive their prom experiences.
One of the most despicable organizations on the public dole is Planned Parenthood. Birthed from the racist mind of the eugenicist Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood has been fulfilling her progressive pogrom against the unborn since the doors were opened in 1942. She spelled out her mission clearly when she wrote in the April 1932 Birth Control Review, “Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race,” (pg. 108). The only thing which has changed since then is that the eugenic face of Planned Parenthood is now hidden behind the mask of compassion. The goals remain the same, as evidenced by the disproportionate number of abortions performed on minority babies. Lifesite News reported last December, 36% of all abortions performed between 2007 and 2010 were performed on black babies, despite the fact that the African-American community is 12.8% of the entire U.S. population. The overall abortion rate declined by 3% during this time period, but the rate for blacks and Hispanics jumped 3% and 8%, respectively.
Not content with killing over 300,000 babies a year, Planned Parenthood has augmented their business model in an effort to increase clientele. They’ve begun peddling smut and perversion to children, in the hopes of encouraging them to become sexualized in prepubesence, thereby gaining a longer window for their services. The diabolical logic follows that if a woman gets pregnant, there is a chance she will decide to keep the child. But if a young girl conceives, she is much more likely to seek an abortion, either with or without parental consent. And so Planned Parenthood has begun a full-fledged media campaign, designated to “educate” your children about sex.
This concerted effort to indoctrinate children with normalized perversion began 10 years ago with their website Teenwire.com, which described deviant sexual behavior as normal and fun. The growth of new media has prompted them to begin producing mobile apps and serial, bite-sized videos aimed at further breaking down moral boundaries well before they reach the age of consent. When a user opens one of their “Apps for Teens” on the website, they are asked to select an age bracket with one of the options being “12 or under” (apparently this option was added after they named the apps). So when a 9-year old respondent is asked to Agree or Disagree with the statement “If I have sex, I might get a bad reputation and people might gossip about me,” she is told: “It’s true, people might not gossip. But your parents and other adults who are important to you care, and they probably want you to wait to have sex.” Probably? Are there any parents out there who wouldn’t want their sub-12-year-old to wait? If there are, I seriously question their parental fitness. But with words like “probably” the seeds are already planted. At that impressionable young age, a sliver of doubt is all that might be needed to sway a young person’s mind and Planned Parenthood is right there to whisper in their ears.
It is outrageous that this organization exists in our country, but it is inexcusable that they owe their existence to money taken directly from our pockets. According to CNS News, 45% of Planned Parenthood’s 2012-2013 revenue came from our pockets. The organization received $540,600,000 in the form of government health service grants. Additionally a number of clinics in a handful of states received additional grants to serve as “navigators” for Obamacare. This brought in an additional $655,192 of tax-payer funding. That is more than $1.5 million each day, taken from our paychecks to kill babies and sexualize our children.
This cannot continue. Although the courts have recently dealt blows to state legislature initiatives in Arizona and North Carolina to defund Planned Parenthood, we cannot waver. Innovative legislation is being produced every day in places like Ohio and Louisiana, requiring these abortuaries to secure “transfer agreements” with a hospital within a certain distance. We need more innovative thinking to combat this wretched trade. But more than anything, we need to hammer home the fact that we REFUSE to fund Planned Parenthood. Congress made a half-hearted attempt awhile back, but lacked the intestinal fortitude to see it through (shocker). It is up to us to make this point unwaveringly clear to them. Not on our watch, not on our dime.
