Governor Palin’s Statement on Defunding Planned Parenthood





As those who have been paying attention are well-aware, Planned Parenthood has been one controversy after enough. The question remains, therefore, why do we continue to fund them with taxpayer dollars? Governor Palin addresses this very issue.

Via Team Sarah:

Governor Sarah Palin has released the following statement regarding the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Won’t you stand with Governor Palin on this vital issue?

Governor Palin’s statement:
The greatest fiscal challenge facing our country today is our government’s dangerously unsustainable debt and its practice of deficit spending. Whatever side you’re on in the abortion debate, surely you can see that our taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund abortion at any time, let alone these hard economic times. And yet that is what has been happening with the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood – the nation’s largest abortion provider, which is awash in scandal after revelations of its dishonesty with the American public. They receive an average of $1 million taxpayer dollars per day; and regardless of what they had promised the public in their campaign ads, new investigative reporting shows that they are not really using our tax dollars to provide women with mammograms and other real health care services. It’s simply freeing up funds that they can then invest in their primary money-making endeavor: abortion. Planned Parenthood doesn’t really offer women who find themselves in less-than-ideal circumstances any real choice. They don’t show women that they have the power, capability, strength, and love within themselves to choose the blessing that is life. They don’t explain the resources that are available to parents who want to give their child life. They don’t show them that adoption is a beautiful choice too. What they offer is not true empowerment or “choice” or women’s health care. I join Rep. Mike Pence and others of conscience and common sense who are leading the charge to end the taxpayer funding of the nation’s largest abortion provider. We recognize that not only is our country buried under Mt. McKinley-sized debt, but that the truest measure of any society is how it treats those who are least able to defend and speak for themselves. Surely the individual resources of a generous country can come to the aid of women in need without the taxpayer funding of abortion.

Governor Palin understands that empowering women means doing that which is best for women. Planned Parenthood seems more interested in continuing to get fat off of our money, rather than providing services and counseling that would truly empower women with necessary services and information to make real choices.

    I am very proud of Sarah’s satement too. I look forward to her speech at the pro-life event coming soon.

    Did you notice how NRO covered it? Very strangely to me.

    • Right_Wingnut

      I’m not too happy with NRO right now, but are you referring to the article by Lopez in the Corner? That was posted yesterday, when all we had to go on was an article from The Hill. I’m assuming she didn’t have this statement when she wrote it.

      • TheTotalConservative

        NRO is pathetic.

      • c4pfan

        Well, I didn’t get it. She’s pro-life and title she used didn’t come off that way.

  • Republican2679

    Palin for President 2012!! Enough said. Hope everybody is having a good Sunday evening.

    Thank you, Gov. Palin. The taxpayers are stretched beyond the max already. Paying for someone else’s abortion is certainly not another bill that should go to taxpayers.

    There is no place in the role of government for distributing the tax dollars of some to pay for the abortions of others.

  • TheTotalConservative

    If you want to see Palin become the nominee you going to have Knock Out Bachmann. Bachmann is playing the games and trying to destroy Palin’s Chances because Bachmann is hell bent on keeping Palin out or even poisoning the well so Palin has a tough time in the Early States. Michele Bachmann is looking a lot like Anne Baxter.

    WELL DONE, Sarah! As Frankie Pentangeli would say, "There’s not gonna be no trouble from me!"

    Cicci, a porta!

    • Rightmindedmom

      LOL, Hyman.

  • Guest

    Ignore the troll. Bachmann is not the focus. SP and how she will defeat Obama is.

  • section9

    That said, the Bachmann PAC ads are a tad disconcerting on a Sarah site.

    • Jean_A

      You can only sign the petition if you donate to her freckin PAC. What kind of petition is that? Will most of the funds be used to fight PP???

  • Jude8301

    PALIN 2012 !!!!!!!!

    What a Great Leader and Awesome Person.

  • colint

    I don’t know what services Planned Parenthood provides. Perhaps some qualify for public funds but not abortion services. It should be possible to keep accounting records (subject to audit) to segregate the full costs and revenue of abortion operations. These costs should be covered by user fees or private donations from individuals or organizations such as NOW.

    I am pro Child rather than pro Life or Choice. At 78, I have to watch my BP. I do not read stories such as a baby killed in a microwave oven. Aborting an unwanted pregnancy in the first trimester is better than an unwanted child suffering neglect, abuse, and a future of prison or worse. I do not think abortion in the first trimester should be illegal, but much more could be done to reduce unwanted pregnancies.

    A woman said she had 12+ abortions. Disgusting!. Is it not possible to have a law requiring a woman to have a tubal ligation in some circumstances. One unwanted pregnancy and abortion under age 18 is excusable. A second abortion after age 18 should require a tubal ligation. Women arrested for a drug or alcohol (addiction) offence should be required to have a TL. Conviction of child abuse should require a TL. If a baby is conceived and born while the mother is on welfare, she must agree to a TL to continue welfare.

    Abortion should require identifying the male. A male who after age 18 does not support his child, should be required to have a vasectomy.

    • wodiej

      That’s an idea making it a requirement to identify the father. You make some valid points.

    • Guest

      Abortion does not prevent child abuse; on the contrary, child abuse has increased since abortion was legalized. Why? Because human life has been devalued. Fortunately, the tide is turning on abortion Young women are more pro life than their mothers. We can thank ultrasounds for that.

        source?

    • eclecticsandra

      This seems like a lot of government interference to me. Maybe we should go back to sterilizing the mentally incompetent while we’re at it.

    Michael Moriarty’s timely article about abortion dovetails with Sarah Palin’s statement on Planned Parenthood. He is also a big booster of Sarah Palin for president.

    "American suicide

    By Michael Moriarty
    web posted April 4, 2011

    Last week I wrote of the religion of power.

    This linked article contains a doctoral level diagnosis of America’s problems with herself, and, I dare add, the foreplay to American Suicide.

    (Snip) What must America do to save herself?

    First overturn Roe v Wade in as many states as possible so that, when Traditional America does say "No" to the likes of the New World Order, the Progressives know our America and Americans mean "No!"

    Second, elect Sarah Palin and Lt. Col. Allen West to control the White House."

    Full article here, and it is hard hitting: http://www.enterstageright.com/archive/articles/0411/0411americansuicide.htm

    I wonder if the pro-abortion people give as much money to charities of their cause as the amount of money given by pro-life people to their charities.

    On the defunding, I still think that it would be fair to at least spend for a while that money on the pro-life side of this issue.

    By the way, what I never understood is why are the no-choice pro-abortion people so often against post-natal abortion (a.k.a. death penalty of criminals) but abortion of the not-well-connected weak and sick and unborn is ok.

    Palin’s alternative adoption-not-abortion is something that should get more credit and support –and that is the opinion of someone who is "pro-choice" (not to confuse with the no-choice crowd)

    • PJ_in_NC

      About money given to charities… I don’t have linkage right now, but I’ve seen studies showing that conservatives are far more likely to donate to charity. Religious people donate more (and volunteer more) than non-religious ones.

      Which makes perfect sense. If you think that people are responsible for themselves and each other, you give to charity. If you think that the government should provide everything, why bother donating?

    This doesn’t look like Sarah wrote it.

    • hrh40

      Huh?

      And huh to your two friends too …

  • freeperjim

    To kill or support the killing of an unborn child is an act of hate and evil that words cannot describe.

    The leftwingers embrace this hatred toward God, America and our Constitution.

    They are truly evil.
