Billion-dollar abortion business Planned Parenthood's tax dollars questioned by Congress, pro-life advocates

Yesterday a number of pro-life Members of Congress joined Lila Rose, President of Live Action, Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List, Penny Nance, CEO of Concerned Women for America, and Kristan Hawkins, Executive Director of Students for Life of America to urge support for the Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, H.R. 217. The bill would prevent your tax dollars from propping up billion-dollar abortion businesses like Planned Parenthood, which gets close to a third of its funding from the government.
As the national press has reported, Lila Rose (pictured at left) has presented a stunning undercover video showing Planned Parenthood staff willing to aid and abet child sex trafficking. A factsheet released in September indicates that the number of abortions provided by Planned Parenthood in 2008 increased to 324,008.
