"Every day, Planned Parenthood undermines American values, and it does so with our tax money," said American Life League president Judie Brown. "Frankly, we're fed up. That's why we're beginning a new advertising campaign to educate Americans about what this organization does with our hard-earned dollars. When people find out the truth, we're convinced Planned Parenthood's tax funding will quickly dry up."
The first phase of the ad campaign consists of a series of full-page ads, beginning in today's edition of the Washington Times. The first ad is headlined, "Reason #72 to stop Planned Parenthood from getting over $265 million in your tax dollars: Racism." The ad outlines the racist philosophies of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and points out that although African-Americans make up about 11 percent of the U.S. population, more than 30 percent of all abortions involve black babies.
Other ads in the series will focus on Planned Parenthood's effort to conceal information about potential cases of statutory rape, the higher incidence of suicide among teenagers who have had abortions, and the pornographic material Planned Parenthood distributes to children under the guise of sex education.
"Americans should demand an end to taxpayer support for the likes of Planned Parenthood." said Mrs. Brown. "That is why American Life League is stepping up its petition campaign to encourage lawmakers at the federal, state and local levels to cut off every penny of taxpayer assistance to Planned Parenthood, which operates the country's deadliest chain of abortion facilities. We simply cannot tolerate the idea of our tax money being used to subsidize these offensive activities."
