Report: Abortion Groups Getting Millions in Tax Dollars

Ad Feedback

A new report shows abortion groups are spending millions of dollars in federal funds.

The Government Accountability Office found that Planned Parenthood and five other pro-abortion organizations have received more than $1 billion in taxpayer funds from 2002-2009.

Planned Parenthood alone has spent more than $650 million, according to the 33-page report.

CBN News spoke with Wendy Wright, president of Concerned Women for America, about the recent GAO report.  Click play for her comments. 

The money is not supposed to be used to provide abortions, but pro-life lawmakers are still upset.

"So while everyday Americans struggle to make ends meet, the federal government is dolling out hundreds of millions of tax dollars to help keep the abortion industry afloat," GOP Rep. Joe Pitts charged.

Most of the funds are coming from the "Title X" family planning program.

Congressman Mike Pence of Indiana is now sponsoring the "Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act" which would bring an end to funding for abortion advocates.
