Laff riot: Planned Parenthood='Rich Abortion Mill'

Ace wingnuttery from AgapePress.

The head of the pro-life activist group Stop Planned Parenthood (STOPP) says it’s time to call for a halt to U.S. government funding for that organization, especially now that the supposed non-profit agency has made what he calls a sweetheart deal with Barr Pharmaceuticals, producer of the “Plan B” morning-after pill.

STOPP executive director Jim Sedlak says the arrangement between the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Barr Pharmaceuticals means that the nation’s largest abortion provider will be making $20 in profit for every Plan B kit it sells. “And last year,” he notes, “Planned Parenthood says they sold 774,000 kits, which means they made a profit of over $15 million.”

Any organization that can turn over that kind of money no longer needs or deserves federal funding, Sedlak contends. He says people should call their federal, state, and local governments to cut taxpayer support for Planned Parenthood, whose recent business would seem to ensure a healthy bottom line without the subsidy.

Here’s a little propaganda from STOPP’s site. Tell me this isn’t a group of f*cknut crazies…

In 2002, STOPP did an extensive research project to identify the name and location of every Planned Parenthood facility in the country. We identified a total of 846 facilities that PPFA operated around the United States (92 less than it did in 1993). Approximately 160 of these facilities killed preborn children on site, while the remainder offered various products for sale, including abortifacients such as the pill, the IUD, Norplant, Depo-Provera, and emergency contraception.

Based on the successes we had over the last 10 years, STOPP has put together this plan to peacefully and prayerfully close down every PP facility in the country. The threat of Planned Parenthood still exists today. According to its own data, PP still commits 197,000 abortions a year. In addition, Planned Parenthood’s sex education classes and PPFA’s website for teens teach children a perverted philosophy which denies the very truth and meaning human sexuality. Planned Parenthood seeks to break down a child’s natural inhibitions and foster greater promiscuity. This increases Planned Parenthood’s customer base for both contraception and abortion.
