This video is fantastic. It’s a presentation by Michele Bachmann (R-MN) to an almost empty chamber, but that doesn’t mean that it won’t get any attention (I hope). It shows her rightfully slamming Planned Parenthood’s non-profit status as a scam and a fraud, calling it both the Lenscrafters and Wal-Mart of abortion.
The amount of money that Planned Parenthood, a non-profit organization, makes is unbelievable. Why they still are tax-exempt is beyond me. Here’s the thing. For those of you who find abortion morally wrong and reprehensible, but don’t want to inflict your views on anyone else, tell me why it is you should be forced to pay for women to get abortions. Feminists are always crowing about how abortion is all about choice, but I don’t have a choice in the matter. I find abortion repugnant, and want absolutely nothing to do with funding them, but I’m forced to. It’s incredible. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood is getting record profits every year. Why are they still considered non-profit?
If abortion is going to be legal, then it isn’t something that should be taxpayer-funded, especially considering how many Americans are ardently against it. If Planned Parenthood wants to give out free or cheap abortions, then more power to them — as long as the funding isn’t coming out of my paycheck. That is a scam and a fraud just as Michele Bachmann says, and it should cease immediately.
