Planned Parenthood Clinics Are Shutting Down Left and Right (Audio)
Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Holly Meade, and BarbWire.com Founder Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
According to a Life Site News report, Planned Parenthood clinics are shutting down left and right. But it’s too premature to celebrate because some of the Republicans, even in Washington, D.C., even though we control the House and the Senate, still have a problem moving Planned Parenthood out of the budget. Unbelievable! So, lots of things to talk about today on Faith and Freedom.
Mat Staver: Well, according to Planned Parenthood’s 2005/2006 Annual Report — that actually looks at 2004 statistics — comparing that to its most recent one, 2014/2015, the numbers show that the breast exams are down by 60%, PAP tests are down 77%, and total cancer screenings are down 68%. Yet, during that same period forced taxpayer funding has doubled to $553 Million a year and abortions are up 27%.
But, some of these clinics are struggling and shutting down and we need, Matt, to remove Planned Parenthood from the budget. There’s just no ifs, ands, or buts about this. That’s not a negotiable issue. We cannot allow Democrats to drive this issue and continue to force the American people to fund Planned Parenthood!
