    Should be easier to adolf a child than it's to abort a child!

    Since PP started, aborted almost 40,000. That's the population of my town.

    It's complicated... so many issues, but abortion should be stopped.

    Admirable goal, but abortion has pretty much always been with us and it always will. Instead of trying to stop it, we should be trying to reduce the number of abortions while keeping the practice safe & legal.

    Regarding Planned Parenthood - you do realise that they do more than perform abortions, right? Their primary focus has always been birth control, which IMHO is the key to reducing the number of abortions.

    Research: Public funds prevent 800,000 abortions a year

    Publicly funded family planning prevents nearly 2 million unintended pregnancies and more than 800,000 abortions in the United States each year, saving billions of dollars, according to new research intended to counter conservative objections to expanding the program.

    .......

    Report co-author Rachel Benson Gold called the family planning program "smart government at its best," asserting that every dollar spent on it saves taxpayers $4 in costs associated with unintended births to mothers eligible for Medicaid-funded natal care.

    That would be according to WND or Newsmax. In fact the GAO audit says differently. So in seven years they got $657 million....wouldn't that be about $93 million per year?

    The report stated that Planned Parenthood spent $657.1 million in federal funds between 2002 and 2009. That was the amount Planned Parenthood itself reported to the government in the form of audited annual reports, which the GAO described as "sufficiently reliable for our purposes."

    it's not complicated. we live in a secular society. keep your religious beliefs to yourself.

    Planned Parenthood provides vital health services for low income women.

    And then you make a point to remember it? 'Cause I just look it up on USPS.com, instead of wasting time memorizing those state postal codes.
