Taxpayer-funded abortions are helping no one

Planned Parenthood financial growthA recent study of data from 1999 to 2014 shows that there is no published research to show that a long-running argument of abortion proponents is true.

Planned Parenthood and other abortion proponents have argued for years that taxpayer-funded abortions are needed to help people plan their families. Tessa Longbons of the Charlotte Lozier Institute says 17 states offer Medicare-funded abortions.

"We often hear the claim that abortion is necessary to achieve healthy spaces between births," Longbons begins. "But in this population of almost five million women with at least one pregnancy, only about one percent had an abortion that spaced two live births."

So despite what the abortion conglomerate contends, abortion is not being used to plan and space out live births. Longbons says this research ought to be on the desks of every lawmaker.

"We certainly want to make sure that state legislators have all the information that they need to make these decisions and that the average taxpayer does, too, especially since this is such a hot topic in the news," the pro-lifer submits. "We want to make sure that people see what the true impact is of taxpayer-funded abortion."

The results refute Planned Parenthood and the American Public Health Association, both of which claim abortion is necessary for healthy spacing of pregnancies.
