Abortion Business Not Deserving of Government Funding Program

May 7, 2013

Bloomington residents, Planned Parenthood is after your money. Planned Parenthood seeks money

The Bloomington Common Council and Mayor oversee a funding program for social services agencies called the Jack Hopkins Social Services funding program. Since 1993 it has provided more than $2 million to local organizations, including a whopping $35,052 to Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion business in the state of Indiana and its Bloomington location does all the Monroe County abortions. In 2011 alone, there were 731 abortions in Monroe County. For those familiar with Lila Rose’s undercover videos, Planned Parenthood of Bloomington is the location at which a staff person coached Rose, posing as a 13-year-old girl, to go out of state for an abortion after she said her 31-year-old boyfriend got her pregnant.

In this year’s Jack Hopkins funding request, Planned Parenthood of Indiana applied for $5,000 for its Ensuring Access to Life Saving, Preventative Health Services initiative. The problem is any money given to the abortion provider supports its abortion business, no matter how indirectly. Planned Parenthood likes to tout its preventative services, but any grant money they receive for non-abortion services frees up more money to expand its abortion business.

Planned Parenthood’s funding request isn’t a done deal. Of their 14 total requests, three have been denied over the years. The most recent denial came last year when Planned Parenthood requested $4,975 for “Love, Sex, and the Freshman 15.” Bloomington residents concerned that their city’s funding program is supporting the regional abortion business have an opportunity to publicly speak out.

Several steps remain in the Jack Hopkins funding process.

As long as Planned Parenthood ends preborn babies’ lives, the organization doesn’t deserve a dime of government funding.
