To cut debt, defund Planned Parenthood


It appears our country is going broke! The state of Illinois is broke. Wisconsin now claims it is broke and so is California. Governors around the country are trying to cut spending and struggling to fix their budgets.

The White House tosses around figures in the trillions that we are in debt. Our politicians in Washington are battling it out trying to figure out how to cut the debt. Of course, the two political parties can’t agree on anything.

Well, for starters, I have a suggestion. Stop funding Planned Parenthood to the tune of $363 million every year with our tax dollars (based on information from EWTN). Millions of Americans are opposed to abortion. We are taxpayers and we do not want our taxes going to support Planned Parenthood, which is a main provider of abortions. No wonder our country is going under. These innocent babies are our brothers and sisters under God.

I believe Planned Parenthood’s main reason for existence is to perform abortions. The organization is a multi-million-dollar big business. Abortion is evil and we as a people should be ashamed of the fact that it was ever made legal.


We need to rid our country of this business. Until we do, we will never know peace.
