I’m posting the entire “Daily Jot” for today.
Thursday, January 5, 2012Tax money to support abortion must be stoppedThe federal government gave the abortion industry’s largest baby killing organization some $487,400,000 in the fiscal year ending 2011. This, according to the annual report of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA). PPFA says it performed 329,445 abortions from July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2011. The report also brags that the organization sent $1.6 million in grants to 48 partner organizations in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, “enabling the delivery of reproductive health care to more than 655,000 women and adolescents.” Read between the lines: your tax money is not only wiping out a generation of Americans, but also evangelizing this death worldwide.
There is more. PPFA says of the nationalized healthcare law: “Thanks to Planned Parenthood’s tireless efforts in the face of staunch opposition, the new law expands care to millions of women and protects women’s access to essential reproductive care.” In other words, the healthcare bill that the man who occupies the Oval Office signed into law will enable abortions–something the president said would not happen. PPFA claims that abortion is only three percent of its services and that there is no federal money that directly subsidizes abortion. Things like contraception (35% of the budget) and STD testing and treatment (38% of the budget) are where the tax money is spent.
If not for your contribution through taxes to PFPA, it would be a shell of an organization. All the services provided by PPFA are seamlessly integrated to promote the ultimate end game–abortion. In 2005, I attended a closed briefing by PPFA for Congressional staffers. PPFA representatives explained that federal money is not used for abortions, but rather for infrastructure, brick and mortar and contraception, education, STD testing. But without federal funding, PPFA would not be able to exist (you and I fund 46.5% of its budget). Additionally, I have interviewed former PPFA employees who say that PPFA educates to promote sex, hands out low strength birth control, and councils to encourage abortions.
There are many Bible verses about life, choosing life, the Lord knowing and forming babies in the womb. They are all used by Christians who speak about abolishing abortion. But a verse that shivers me to the soul is Jeremiah 2:34, “Also in thy skirts is found the blood of the souls of the poor innocents; I have not found it by secret search, but upon all these.” America is guilty and shameless for these acts of infanticide when even our own Declaration of Independence confirms all Americans’ right to life. People wonder why our nation is facing such political and economic upheaval–for one of the reasons just look at the Planned Parenthood annual report. It’s time we stop this by turning our word into deed.Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!
