Paul Stark of Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life explains that the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in 1995 that Medicaid funds have to be used to pay for abortions.

"Over time since that decision, we've seen the taxpayer-funded abortion numbers increase," he continues. "The latest numbers just came out for the year 2019, and they show that the taxpayer-funded abortion number in Minnesota reached a new all-time high, which is 4,463."

The fact that that number continues to grow tells Stark that abortion businesses are taking advantage of the money available for low-income women. Even as abortions over the years have decreased or leveled off, Planned Parenthood's share of the market has increased.

"We especially see that with the taxpayer-funding numbers," the pro-lifer notes. "Planned Parenthood Minnesota has increased their tax-funded abortion numbers eight straight years, which is a 222% increase from 2011 to 2019 in Minnesota, which is astonishing."

Meanwhile, members of the state legislature have consistently introduced bills that, if approved, would ban the use of public moneys to terminate preborn children.
