Abortion is funded by tax dollars

Dear Editor,

This is in response to the letter to the Editor in the August 19 issue which stated in part “The attacks on Planned Parenthood are hypocritical at best.”

I believe the writer misses the point completely. Planned Parenthood performs around 900 abortions each day and is funded by OUR TAX DOLLARS of approximately $500 million each year. Many of the babies who survive abortions are VIABLE if allowed to live. Most are not allowed to live and are gruesomely cut up for parts, with the prices negotiated as shown on video recordings. These sources of income seem to nullify the writer’s assertion that Planned Parenthood is not making a profit on fetal tissue. The discussion about a woman’s right to kill another life is for another time.
