You know how the federal government always says that while they support Planned Parenthood with millions of bucks you shouldn’t worry because none of that money goes to abortion. What a horrible joke that is. And we all know it.
New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie proved that’s a lie just this week. Mind you, I still don’t trust Christie’s pro-life conversion but he did a great thing by pulling millions in funding from Planned Parenthood. He argued that it was for fiscal reasons but who cares why, he did it because now Planned Parenthood is shutting down clinics in New Jersey.
A New Jersey Planned Parenthood office is closing its doors forever after Gov. Chris Christie cut state taxpayer funding to the abortion giant — and the state senate failed to over-ride his decision.
The Cherry Hill, N.J. office is operated by Planned Parenthood of Southern New Jersey. It stands to lose as much as $160,000 in taxpayer funds, because of Christie’s decision.
“We applaud the senators who voted ‘no’ to override Governor Christie’s veto of S2139,” Marie Tasy, head of New Jersey Right to Life, told LifeNews. “This debate was never about health care. It is about advancing a political agenda and rewarding friends and a radical special interest group with our tax dollars.”
“We commend Governor Christie for his steadfast opposition to eliminate waste, fraud and abuse and for working to promote the best health care for all NJ citizens,” she added.
Here’s the thing. I know this is really hard to understand but giving millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood allows them to stay open and that means more abortions. Oh wait, it’s actually not that hard to understand. In fact, it’s pretty much common sense.
There’s just no reason Planned Parenthood should be receiving millions of dollars in taxpayer money. I don’t care whether we argue that it’s for socially conservative reasons or fiscally conservative reasons let’s follow the example of Chris Christie all around the country and defund Planned Parenthood.
