Good New For Future Generations

What does Planned Parenthood do when it’s not destroying unborn babies? It raises money to help elect politicians who will pass laws that will make it easier for Planned Parenthood to kill babies. Planned Parenthood is already raking in record amounts of taxpayer-funded subsidies (over $305 million in 2006) and record-high revenues (close to $900 million in 2006). Now America’s largest abortion seller is planning to get directly involved in politics. Planned Parenthood has unveiled the “One Million Strong” campaign, during which it will spend $10 million in trying to persuade one million people to vote for pro-abortion candidates in 2008. It’s clear that the abortion industry is desperate for its political agenda to prevail.

This desperation is not surprising. There’s been good news recently for the pro-life cause. Polls show America’s youth are increasingly pro-life compared with their parents’ and grandparents’ generations. The Alan Guttmacher Institute, Planned Parenthood’s research wing, recently released data showing a 25 percent decline in the number of abortions since 1990, to the lowest point in 30 years. All this is good news for the country but not for Planned Parenthood, most of whose revenues are generated from abortion.
