Taxes Fund Contraceptives, Population Control

Why do so many pro-lifers focus on Planned Parenthood when there are other family planning and abortion providers?  Taxes. Our taxes pay for contraceptives and abortion – against our will.

Planned Parenthood’s Guttmacher Institute’s rationale for contraceptives goes like this:

“Without publicly funded family planning services, the number of unintended pregnancies and abortions occurring in the United States would be nearly two-thirds higher among women overall and among teens; the number of unintended pregnancies among poor women would nearly double.”

However, elsewhere Guttmacher admits that “unintended pregnancies” occur while girls/women are using contraceptives!

Facts on Publicly-Funded Contraceptive Services

Contraceptive services provided at publicly funded clinics helped prevent 1.48 million of these unintended pregnancies; the remaining 450,000 unintended pregnancies were prevented among Medicaid enrollees who received publicly funded contraceptive services from private physicians.

One in four women who obtained contraceptive services in the United States in 2006—including 50% of poor women who did so—received care at publicly funded family planning centers.


Contraceptive services provided at Title X-supported centers helped prevent 970,000 unintended pregnancies in 2006, which would likely have resulted in 430,000 unintended births and 410,000 abortions.
