The massive full-year government funding bill that Democrats have proposed contains a huge gift of taxpayer funds for the nation’s largest abortion business.
The bill still must be passed by the House and Senate and signed by Joe Biden, but the expectation is that a measure will eventually get to his desk over Republican objections and that the Planned Parenthood funding will remain intact.
As pro-life Congressman Dan Bishop pointed out on Twitter, the bill contains over $296 million for the abortion giant.

That is a huge chunk of change for an abortion business that is already raking in the dough hand over fist. According to its own figures in its most recent annual report, the “nonprofit” abortion business made more money than ever before — bringing in $1,714.4 billion income, aided in part by $633.4 million in taxpayer dollars.
Its 2020 annual report, released in September, shows it aborted 383,460 babies, an increase of almost 30,000 babies killed in abortions compared to the year before. In 2019 the abortion giant killed 354,871 babies in abortions.
While Planned Parenthood kills more babies in abortions, the number of abortions in the United States increased just 2%— making it so Planned Parenthood is doing a larger and larger percentage of all the abortions done on babies in the U.S. ever year. With the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute estimating 930,160 abortions, this means Planned Parenthood kills 41% of all babies killed in abortions in the United States.
The new annual report also shows that Planned Parenthood is helping customers with less and less legitimate health care.
“In 2020, Planned Parenthood health centers saw 2.16 million patients, collectively delivering more than 8.6 million services,” Planned Parenthood reports, which is a decrease of 240,000 customers or a drop of 10% from its 2019 figures. That came at the same time its abortion figured increased 8%.
Also, as the annual report figures show, Planned Parenthood helped fewer people with contraception, did fewer colposcopy procedures, less HIV testing, fewer PAP tests, fewer vaccinations, fewer breast exams, and fewer overall appoints than the year before.
And while Planned Parenthood killed over 383,000 babies it only helped 8,775 women with prenatal care. That means it killed 43 babies in abortions for every baby it helped be born. So much for planning parenthood.
