A special update from NRLC’s Communications Department:
National Right to Life Launches Ad Buy:
Just Where DOES Planned Parenthood Get Their Money
This morning, listeners of radio stations in Northern Virginia and in Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio, started hearing a new ad from National Right to Life explaining where Planned Parenthood gets some of their $1 billion budget.
Currently Planned Parenthood’s political arms are running more than $500,000 worth of radio in the same markets.
Listen to the ad now!
Because National Right to Life factchecks everything we put out, we have the facts from Planned Parenthood’s own annual report to back up the ad. Check out these key factsheets citing Planned Parenthood’s OWN data:
Help us spread the word about Planned Parenthood’s money! Facebook it, tweet it, email it. The American public deserves to know the truth about the nation’s largest provider and promoter of abortion.
By the way, here’s the full script of the ad:
Planned Parenthood’s political arms are spending nearly TWELVE MILLION dollars trying to elect politicians who support giving Planned Parenthood more of your tax money. How can they spend nearly TWELVE MILLION for politics?
Planned Parenthood has an income of over ONE BILLION…YES BILLION…dollars a year. And they want more!
Where do they get all of that money? According to their own reports, Planned Parenthood gets over FOUR HUNDRED EIGHTY MILLION a year from government grants and reimbursements… your tax money. And there’s more!
Their own reports show Planned Parenthood performs over THREE HUNDRED TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND abortions a year. At an estimated $450 dollars per abortion, that’s more than ONE HUNDRED FORTY-FIVE MILLION dollars a year in…and 325,000 lives out.
And, by the way, they don’t do mammograms.
So Planned Parenthood spends millions to elect politicians who will give them millions.
But that’s just politics…at it’s worst.
These are just the facts from National Right to Life. For more information, visit nrlc.org today.
Statement from David N. O’Steen, Executive Director of the National Right to Life Committee :
A number of recent “mainstream news media” stories have taken the line that Mitt Romney has now shifted to a “moderate” position on abortion. Please don’t be fooled and remember that with very, very few exceptions, the media are simply an extension of the Obama campaign. The goal of this latest media spin is to get pro-lifers to abandon Romney and help the media elect Obama.
Mitt Romney’s position on abortion has been consistent throughout both his 2008 and his 2012 campaign and he has not changed that position. He believes Roe vs. Wade should be overturned and he believes abortion should only be allowed in cases to save the life of the mother and in cases of rape and incest. He is running a television ad to that effect in part to counter the media’s earlier attempt, beginning with the Republican convention, to distort his position and imply that he would seek to ban abortion in cases of rape or incest or perhaps in all cases, including life of mother cases.
The media are quite happy for you to either think that Mitt Romney is too extreme on abortion or is too moderate on abortion, just as long as you don’t support him and help elect Obama.
Of course you will never see the media delving into Obama’s own position and record which includes 1) voting against a bill in Illinois that would have protected babies born alive during an abortion, 2) co-sponsoring a bill that would have made partial birth abortion legal again, and 3) opposing a bill to ban sex-selection abortion–not to mention the abortion promoting elements of Obamacare.
Obama can be defeated and a pro-life administration can be elected IF pro-lifers remain focused, disciplined and ignore whatever the Obama media try to whisper in our ears.
