This must be corrected. No organization receiving public funding should be allowed to choose sides politically.
Let me get this right. Planned Parenthood receives money from all taxpayers because of how Congress has approved it and gave some of it back to the Democrats? That’s just wrong no matter what side of the abortion issue you are on.
Why do the taxpayers give Planned Parenthood any money when they give it back to the Democrats? Isn’t this just laundering taxpayer money to support a political party?

Planned Parenthood’s political action committees, employees and family members of employees have contributed $126,886 to Democrats currently sitting on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and $0 to Republican senators on the committee, according to data from The Center for Responsive Politics, which includes campaign contributions from 1990 through 2018.
Planned Parenthood–which, as the nation’s largest abortion provider performed 321,384 abortions in fiscal 2016–has given Democratic Senate Judiciary Committee members a total of $29,961 in 2018 alone.
The Senate Judiciary Committee currently is battling over the fate of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who was nominated by President Donald Trump on July 9.
All 10 current Democratic members of the Senate Judiciary Committee have received contributions, at some point, from Planned Parenthood’s political action committees, employees or employee family members.
I fully support a woman’s right to choose, in the bedroom. After that, it is murder. Don’t want the child, put it up for adoption or let the biological father have custody.
If this is true or not it doesn’t matter what matters is we need to get rid of all lobbyists and quit letting corporations give money to Congress and senators and presidents to get things set up their way total reform of our government system no lobbyists.
For every dollar they donate to political campaigns, two dollars should be deducted from the next year’s 500 million they get from the taxpayers. That’s fair. Not only are we forced to fund abortions, but we’re also forced to support candidates to which we wouldn’t give our vote.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who sits on the committee, has received $30,400 from Planned Parenthood affiliates, which is more than any other member of the Senate Judiciary Committee has received in the years since 1990.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has received $21,710; Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), $11,065; Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), $2,000; Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), $8,752; and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), $46.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) received $11,499 from Planned Parenthood affiliates; Sen. Christopher Coons (D-Del.) got $16,949; Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), $16,715; and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), $7,750.
According to Planned Parenthood’s last annual report, they received $528.4 million in subsidies from the government in 2014 (that would be us, the taxpayers)! They say they spend three percent of their donations for “abortion services” which means they spend $15.86 million of our money for abortions! I would be willing to bet that figure is way under the actual amount!
The Government should not have to support Planned Parenthood if they have money to donate to the Democratic Party. They should be supported by public contributions. I do not want my tax dollar going to them.
