House Committee releases findings on Planned Parenthood finances
Planned Parenthood is self-sustaining, and the need for federal taxpayer funds to keep their doors open is questionable, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform reported Tuesday.
They also found:
-Planned Parenthood reported $1.3B in revenue in 2014; 41% of which came from government funding.
-Obamacare makes federal funding for Planned Parenthood duplicative
-Salaries at Planned Parenthood are lucrative
-Planned Parenthood spends millions on travel, galas and real estate
-Taxpayer dollars subsidize political affiliates
-Planned Parenthood sends millions overseas with no accountability
-Planned Parenthood falsely claims that only “three percent of all health services are abortion services.
-Planned Parenthood is not a primary provider of mammograms
-Planned Parenthood’s cancer screening services declined by nearly 50 percent from 2009-2013
-Numerous Alternatives to Planned Parenthood Exist
The rest is in a memo from the committee chairman HERE.
Illinois' own representation on the committee is senatorial candidate Tammy Duckworth, who has continuously emphasized her support for Planned Parenthood. She joined with several of her female Democrats on the committee, saying the Republicans are continuing their "assault" on Planned Parenthood.
