U.S. Government: Stop using our tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood

The total government grants and contracts received by Planned Parenthood Federation of America, (PPFA), affiliates from government sources including state, local and federal governments, has been over $3.9 billion since 1987. And has increased from $337 million to $350 million in 2009.

Margaret Sanger, who founded what is now Planned Parenthood, wrote a letter in 1939 to Clarence Gamble, with whom she was partnering to promote birth control and abortions in the black community: “We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We do not want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
