Tell Governor Phil Murphy: No funding for Planned Parenthood!
Abortion is a grave evil in our society. It’s critical that we fight on all fronts to empower women and protect vulnerable, unborn babies. There are many means by which we can accomplish this goal, but it’s no secret that fighting against Planned Parenthood is high on the list.
Each year, Planned Parenthood kills 300,000 babies through abortions. And yet, incredibly, the New Jersey Senate wants to give them 7.5 million dollars in state funding through S3302. This measure (now A4718) is now being considered by the Assembly and will likely soon end up on Governor Phil Murphy’s desk. The Governor has said he plans to sign this legislation –thereby handing over 7.5 million dollars to the abortion giant.
We need to tell the Governor that his plans must change! Please sign this petition to Governor Phil Murphy urging him to veto this legislation and any measure which would give funding to Planned Parenthood. The women, children, and men of New Jersey deserve better than the cycle of death that Planned Parenthood has to offer.
In an attempt to keep their unparalleled public funding, Planned Parenthood claims that they do far more than just abortion—they are supposedly committed to providing women the full range of reproductive health services, including prenatal care.
As a series of investigative videos produced by Live Action have demonstrated, however, Planned Parenthood clinics offer women only one option—abortion.
Planned Parenthood clinics (1) do not offer prenatal care, (2) won’t allow use of ultrasounds for anything other than abortion, and, in fact, (3) are required to meet certain quotas of abortions each month. One of these facts being true is a travesty; all three make the mission of Planned Parenthood clear—perform as many abortions as possible!
A former employee of Planned Parenthood recently revealed that she was trained “to really encourage women to get an abortion and to [get] it at Planned Parenthood, because that would help us meet our goal [quota]. We would try to have the appointment for the abortion scheduled before they left the clinic.
“We would say things like, ‘your visit today costs X number of dollars, how much of that are you going to be able to pay today?’ If they said, ‘I’m not able to pay today,’ we’d say, ‘If you can’t pay ten dollars today, how are you going to take care of a baby? … There is nowhere you can go to get help, don’t you think your smartest choice is termination.’” This type of pressure to have an abortion is unacceptable for an organization that supposedly supports choice and wants our taxpayer dollars!
It’s obvious, Planned Parenthood isn’t a women’s health clinic primarily – it’s an abortion business.
Please sign this petition to Governor Phil Murphy demanding he veto this deadly proposal.
