Hey, GOP! Planned Parenthood set a baby-killing record in 2019-2020!

Planned Parenthood abortion record

Planned Parenthood released its annual report and as expected, the Republican Party’s failure to defund them resulted in an increase in the number of abortions performed, as well as an increase in taxpayer-funding of the slaughter. The report showed an increase of nearly 3% in the number of abortions performed, helping Planned Parenthood set a new baby-killing record in 2019-2020.

The number of Planned Parenthood abortions reached a record high of 354,871 — an increase from 345,672 in 2018-2019 — and represents the murder of over 972 unborn children each day. In addition, taxpayer-funding for baby-killing organization increased from $616.8 million to $618.1 million — $1.7 million daily or $1,748.97 per baby.

Wait a minute! Didn’t Family Research Council President Tony Perkins call Donald Trump “the most pro-life president in history?” Didn’t the Fellowship of the Pharisees praise the Republican Party in 2016 for creating the most pro-life party platform ever?

If talking about being pro-life meant the end of abortion, it would be over by now; especially when Republicans play the “I’m pro-life” card to raise money and steal a few undeserved votes every election season.

However, since that never works, another Republican tactic is to engage in a little political slight of hand where you appear to “do something” to end the baby-killing holocaust without really doing anything of the sort.

Do you remember Trump’s Title X “Protect Life Rule” allegedly defunding Planned Parenthood of about $60 million per year?

Despite the loud hosanna’s heaped on Trump by pro-life organizations — many of whom profit nearly as much from abortion as the baby butchers themselves — the Rule did little to defund Planned Parenthood (note the increase in the annual report) and, as a result, did absolutely nothing to reduce the number of baby killings they perform.

As I wrote at the time, there were two reason for my conclusions:

  • The White House openly admitted the Rule wouldn’t “necessarily defund Planned Parenthood.” All the baby butchers had to do was incorporate some creative bookkeeping to “disentangle taxpayer funds from abortion” to keep getting paid.
  • Planned Parenthood didn’t need Title X income to begin with because Trump and the GOP increased their Medicaid and other reimbursements from other federal spending to make up the $60 million “loss.”

Planned Parenthood’s 2019-2020 record-setting performance followed their previous record-setting performance of 2018-2019. But after nearly five decades of Republican failure to defend life since Roe v. Wade, what else would you expect?

As if baby-killing wasn’t enough, the report shows that Planned Parenthood has found a new taxpayer-funded cash cow thanks to the LGBT agenda.

Launched in 2018, Planned Parenthood began providing hormone “sex-change” treatment for minors — a service paid for taxpayers through Medicaid. According to Planned Parenthood VP of Medical Affairs, Suzie Prabhakaran, “It was time for us to expand the care that we were providing to minors” because gender-confused youth might have difficulty in getting the hormones they seek from “judgmental” doctors.

Even though dispensing hormones to patients under 18 to treat so-called gender dysphoria requires a letter from a doctor or therapist, Planned Parenthood has no such requirement. Company policy simply requires informed consent, which means that once the child acknowledges the risks, treatment is given.

Transgender services are found in the sub-category of “other procedures.” This category increased nearly 83% (from 9,738 in 2018 to 17,791 in 2019-2020), most likely due to Planned Parenthood’s addition of transgender services. There are currently more than 200 Planned Parenthood facilities (a third of the total facilities) in 31 states providing hormone therapy for transgender patients.

According to Abigail Shrier, author of the book IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE: The Transgender Craze Seducing Our Daughters, Planned Parenthood is now one of the largest providers in the United States of cross-sex hormones like testosterone to females seeking medical gender transition.

Republicans haven’t been the only ones playing political football with the bodies of murdered unborn babies, and Planned Parenthood isn’t the only enterprise out there raking in the dough from the slaughter. Sadly, many of the organizations wearing the pro-life label have cashed-in over recent years, and for that reason, they have become willing allies with Republicans and Planned Parenthood to keep the abortion industry open for business.

Republicans have held the majority in the U.S. Senate 25 of the last 48 years since Roe v Wade. Most recently, they held the majority in both Houses of Congress from 2014 to 2018, and they commanded all of Washington from 2016-2018 after taking control of Congress and the White House. And let’s not forget that 1973 Supreme Court that decided Roe v Wade was a Republican-nominated Supreme Court.

It’s utterly astounding that “pro-life” activists, the March for Life, and the faux conservative media pretend to defend life while continuing to promote and defend the fake narrative that Democrats are solely responsible for the evil deeds of Planned Parenthood. The simple truth is that holding Republicans blameless for the baby killing means these pretend defenders of the unborn are no longer defending life, they’re defending Republicans.

It should be clear to anyone paying attention that being a Republican doesn’t make you pro-life; the evidence over the last 48 years has proven that beyond any doubt

More babies were murdered last year at taxpayer expense than in any other year in our nation’s history. Nearly a thousand unborn babies will be murdered today. Every hand in Washington, D.C. is soaked in their blood.

Now that Democrats are in control for the next two years, the abortion pedal will be to the metal, making it easy for Republicans running for election and those who follow them to point a finger at Democrats for Planned Parenthood’s record-setting baby-killing.

If you’re one of those followers, you need to ask yourself: Are you defending life, or are you defending Republicans?

You can’t have it both ways.
