Taxpayers' New Years Resolution: Defund Planned Parenthood!

I have a suggestion for the taxpayers' New Years' Resolution. No it's not a diet, although prayer and fasting to achieve our goal would be in order. No, the diet we need to work on is a starvation diet for Planned Parenthood (PP). The evil bureaucracy of child-murder receives about $350 million of our tax dollars every year to annhilate our youngest American citizens. Ironic, isn't it? The taxpayers fund about 1/3 rd of the killer giant's budget enabling them to wipe out our hope of the future. The murdered babies belong to a group we might call Future Taxpayers of America. PP, then, is public enemy #1 for the country with their commitment to kill as many of those future taxpayers as possible.

PP also gets more than a quarter of its operating budget from individuals and foundations. It has always puzzled me why some commercial groups support Planned Parenthood. Pampers used to be a big donor (I don't know if they still are.) Explain that to me. What is the rationale for helping to kill consumers of your product? That isn't just counter intuitive, it's downright stupid. The Kroc Foundation (McDonald's philanthropic arm) also was a big supporter and may still be. But I can tell you from personal experience that grandkids are the driving force behind trips to the golden arches. In addition to avoiding businesses that support abortion and homosexuality, all I have to do to discourage my consumption of a Big Mac and fries is read the menu with the nutrition information. Yikes! Who needs a thousand calories for lunch? I tried the frappes and they're good, but at 400+ I don't need them either.

So how do we get Planned Parenthood de-funded? There are many strategies, and they all begin with a commitment to inform, lobby, and boycott. Defunding Planned Parenthood was a campaign issue in the Virginia governor's race. Sadly, Bob McDonnell has failed to follow through on his promise. Holding his feet to the fire is certainly a good action item for Virginians. (On the other hand, Bob McDonnell also gets kudos for resisting PP pressure for "comprehensive sex education" in the schools which is absolutely vile.) Another strategy is writing to corporate sponsors with your personal intention to boycott. I just ordered the boycott list from Life Decisions International and I'll be suggesting targets on my blog. Just think of the impact if all serious christians contacted one organization a month to protest their support of Planned Parenthood and tell them you're spending your disposable income somewhere else. LDI lists Kohls, Staples, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and AAA on their list among many others.

Let's make 2011 the year taxpayers give PP funding a major hit. Less money means fewer babies murdered by the biggest abortion business in the world.

A good tool for educating people about Planned Parenthood is the powerful documentary: Maafa21. This film reaches all ages, genders, and races because it traces history to the days of slavery and shows how eugenics came into being and how and why Planned Parenthood was so heavily supported and associated with eugenics. I highly recommend Maafa21 and the best tool for defunding Planned Parenthood. More on the film here
