If you live in Pennsylvania, you should be really concerned about the Governor of this state’s intent. As a former ‘deathscort’ for Planned Parenthood, he does not have the best interest of the majority of the people who live in Pennsylvania, especially the most vulnerable, the preborn. He is and always will be owned by Planned Parenthood and will stop at nothing to see them thrive in Pennsylvania. Please contact your state legislators today (see info provided by Michael Geer, President of the Pennsylvania Family Institute below).
If it wasn’t bad enough for Governor Tom Wolf to veto several good pieces of pro-life legislation, he’s once again going after pro-life Pennsylvanians. This time it’s trying to put your tax dollars into the pockets of Planned Parenthood. But not if we can stop him.
It’s sadly not a shock to see Governor Wolf add new funding for abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood into this year’s budget proposal. He is, after all, a former volunteer escort for the state’s largest abortion business. He’s also been on the receiving end of Planned Parenthood’s record spending on pro-abortion candidates in recent Pennsylvania elections.
Here it is: Line Item 326, adding $3 million for “Access to Reproductive Health Care.”
This new line item was added to circumvent the Trump administration’s Protect Life Rule, which ensures that 100% of Title X funding goes to clinics who actually provide health care to low-income women, and prohibits this taxpayer funding from being funneled to clinics that perform or refer for abortions.
But no matter how pro-abortion our Governor is, he cannot expect Pennsylvania taxpayers to add to Planned Parenthood’s profits.
Not only does Planned Parenthood commit half of all abortions in Pennsylvania, but half of its abortion facilities failed a state health inspection in 2019. And their state operations made over $2.6 million in profits in their last reporting year alone. It’s adding insult to injury, trying to force taxpayers to fund the state’s largest abortion business that’s failing health inspections and already making millions every year.
The good news is the budget must be approved by our state senators and state representatives. That’s why we encourage you to take part in our ‘Fund Care, Not Abortion’ campaign to let your elected leaders know we should not be sending more of our tax dollars to anyone performing or referring for abortions.
Thank you for contacting these elected officials and for sharing this with others to do the same. I end with this, from the words of former Pennsylvania Governor Bob Casey, Sr. nearly thirty years ago:
“What kind of a people are we? What kind of a people will we be? If we abandon the principle of respect for human life by making the value of a life depend on whether someone else thinks that life is worthy or wanted, we will become one sort of people.
But there is a better way. We can choose to reaffirm our respect for human life. We can choose to extend once again the mantle of protection to all members of the human family, including the unborn. We can choose to provide effective care of mothers and children.
And if we make those choices, America will experience a new birth of freedom, bringing with it a renewed spirit of community, compassion, and caring.”
May we do all we can to be the kind of people that respect human life and help us return to a new birth of freedom here in Pennsylvania.
