Call to Action: Defund Planned Parenthood August 4, 2015 by Richard Nelson

Dear Friends,

As you probably already know, Planned Parenthood was recently caught on video marketing and selling the remains of unborn babies. The latest video depicts a Planned Parenthood official explaining how they cover this up to avoid the appearance of a financial transaction.

What you may not know is that the Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services admitted that it provided Planned Parenthood of Kentucky affiliates at least $331,300 in taxpayer funding last year. The funds come from the federal government but the state acts as a pass-through agency to fund the nation’s largest abortion provider. Planned Parenthood is responsible for one of every three abortions and it received over $500 million in taxpayer funds last year.

The state of Kentucky is facilitating the funding of an organization with blood on its hands. This is unconscionable. In a day when the public is decrying racist symbols on state property, how much more egregious when the state is funneling money to a group profiting from the illegal sale of human organs?

However appalling this is, you can make a difference. Please call your state representative and state senator and ask them to stop the state from doing business with Planned Parenthood. Ask them to order the Cabinet for Families and Children to immediately cut all funding for the group.

Call 800 372-7181 and leave a message for your state representative and state senator. If you do not know who they are, the receptionist will ask for your address and she will tell you and make sure they get the message. Please call today!

Sincerely yours,

Richard Nelson
Executive Director
