This is not a column about abortion, per se.
I've written plenty of those in the past and will write more in the future.
This is, however, a column about a “non-profit,” tax-exempt corporation that rakes in more than a quarter-billion dollars in U.S. taxpayer money every year and boasts of being the world's largest “abortion provider.”
It's called Planned Parenthood.
It is a disgusting, evil organization that somehow operates under its own set of rules – unaccountable in any way, shape or form to the rules and regulations governing other so-called “non-profits.”
In fact, Planned Parenthood makes plenty of profits. It made more than $35 million in what it euphemistically calls its “surplus” in the 2003-2004 fiscal year, according to a dynamite new book by Kelly Hollowell titled “Struggling For Life: How Your Tax Dollars and Twisted Science Target the Unborn.”
In fact, in the last seven years alone, Planned Parenthood has earned profits – or built a surplus – of more than $350 million.
In that time period, it has been given government grants of nearly $1.5 billion.
That's what I call subsidizing the abortion industry. While, technically speaking, no U.S. taxpayer dollars are specifically allocated for abortions, Planned Parenthood performed some 1.4 million of them in that same time period.
But as Hollowell points out, it really is a distinction without a difference.
"Would the U.S. government have financed the 'good works' (education, building bridges, etc.) of the Nazi regime – so long as the Nazis promised not to use the funds for purposes of destroying human life in its concentration camps?" she asks. "Common sense dictates the answer – 'NO!' I mean even if the Nazis did not use the tax dollars directly for an evil like genocide, such funding would free up their other finances, allowing them to invest in their openly evil agenda. Likewise, we should not support Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars."
It's a big shell game. Money is fungible. When Planned Parenthood can spend your money on maintaining its image as a "charity," it is free to spend other funds on killing babies.
And PP (an appropriate moniker if there ever was one) is spending lots of your money.
To put it in perspective, government grants last year to PP totaled more than the money allocated to Homeland Security for inspecting the cargo of foreign ships coming to America. They totaled more than the money allocated for protecting Americans from computer hackers and cyber-terrorists. They totaled more than the amount allocated for planning exercises for medical-emergency surge capabilities. In fact, as Hollowell points out, they totaled more than all of those programs combined – far more.
This money has allowed PP to spend $193 million influencing public policy over the last seven years. To put this in perspective, that's more money than the Federal Elections Commission allotted to either George W. Bush or John Kerry in 2004.
PP is one of the most powerful lobbying organizations in America.
Right now, as you read this column, PP is using that influence, spending your money, to lobby against the confirmation of Judge Samuel Alito to the U.S. Supreme Court.
How do you feel about that?
How do you like the U.S. Senate being manipulated with your money?
How do you like enriching people who kill babies for a living, who sexualize your children in schools, who hand out bad condoms to kids to stimulate their abortion business, who use the courts to ram their warped worldview down your throats through judicial activism?
If you like it, sit back and enjoy.
If it makes you angry, defund Planned Parenthood.

What is a Life Worth? (YouTube video)Please take a look at this YouTube video. It will remind you that every human life is precious and that we can see this truth most clearly through the face of a helpless, innocent baby who can do nothing for us but allow us the opportunity to give ourselves to him in love. It teaches that joy comes through giving oneself to another for their own sake and that authentic joy can be experienced in the midst of difficulties and even amidst tremendous sorrow. Mostly, it will reveal the heroic courage and life affirming witness that is possible for those yielded to and animated by the life of the Holy Spirit. Take a look but make sure you have your Kleenex ready.

The Truth Why Women Have Abortions
you ask people why they do the things they do in life, they will give you
sensible sounding reasons which seem to explain their decisions. We like to
believe that we exercise sound judgment, especially in the important
decisions of our lives.
I think that this is rarely true. I think that standard operating procedure for human decision making is to do what feels right to you at the time, and then to give logical sounding justifications for what you were already going to do anyway, whether you had justifications or not.
So, if you are pregnant, and want to get an abortion, you will be able to give any number of reasonable sounding explanations why this is the right decision. You're not ready to be a parent, or you need to finish your education or get to a better point in your career, or you don't have enough money, etc.
If instead you want to keep the baby, you will explain how even though you will have some extra difficulties due to the lack of money or whatever, you will certainly be up to the challenge to make your life work with the baby, how being a parent will be good for you, what a great parent you'll make, how it will bring you and the father closer together, and so on. In either case, none of these will be the real reason for your decision. The real reason for your decision will always be, "I did it because I wanted to do it."
"And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible." —Isaiah 13:11

The Horror of Abortion!
If God could hear the voice of Abel's blood crying out to Him from the ground (Genesis 4:10), do you suppose God has missed the cries of those 50,000,000 infants who've been butchered in America since 1973?
