(’76 Contributor) Lisa Wirthman writes that Planned Parenthood was bullied in the budget battle (Denver Post, April 15). Why does a billion dollar organization need a subsidy from U.S. taxpayers? Rather, Washington is using our tax money to assist a favored special interest group, the sex education and abortion industry. At the same time, Planned Parenthood has been complicit in statutory rape cases and taken donations with offensive racial overtones.
American blacks make up twelve percent of the U.S. population, yet thirty-seven percent of all abortions are performed on black women. With a black-to-white abortion rate of 3-to-1 nationally, abortion remains what Jesse Jackson called it in the 1970s—black genocide.
Abortionists continue their work of tearing off the arms and legs and crushing the heads of babies in the womb at the rate of 3,300 per day. These are our most defenseless citizens. Why should Planned Parenthood be allowed to bully babies and taxpayers?
