IL Planned Parenthood uses tax dollars to win elections, acquire more tax dollars

Planned Parenthood Federation of America has been the focus of an ongoing undercover investigation by Center for Medical Progress, whose staffers posed as individuals interested in procuring fetal tissue and organs for research.

Thus far, they've released nine videos with Planned Parenthood officials and insiders explaining how babies are aborted, how their body parts are distributed for medical research, and how they profit from the transactions. Several governors have defunded their state's Planned Parenthoods, and many state legislatures have initiated investigations into the powerful organization. No action has taken place in Illinois.

In fact, Planned Parenthood of Illinois continues to receive millions of Illinois tax dollars every year. In FY 2015, checks totaling nearly $9 million were written to Planned Parenthood

Illinois' funding of Planned Parenthood was highlighted late last week when Adam Andrzejewski revealed that Illinois Comptroller Leslie Munger has paid Planned Parenthood $4.3 million of taxpayer money since January - and "Grants and Awards" of $1,592,850 between June 17 and July 22nd.
