New Mexico Alliance for Life Pushing Back on False Claims by Pro-Abortion, Pro-Planned Parenthood Politicians
The Albuquerque Journal featured an op-ed by New Mexico Alliance for Life in favor of shifting forced taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood to funding community health centers that provide a full spectrum of women's health services, do not provide abortions, do not sell and harvest aborted baby body parts and do not turn around and give millions in political donations to keep their political cronies in office. NMAFL is leading the charge in exposing these political cronies who work hand in hand with the abortion industry in our state.
From the article:
"As an elected official, Rep. Michelle Lujan-Grisham has the "obligation" to be open and transparent - not to echo Planned Parenthood talking points, which for obvious reasons ignore the concerns revealed in these videos. Lujan-Grisham fails to mention she received $5,000 from the abortion giant in 2012 and $3,000 in 2014."
Take a moment to read the op-ed and share with friends. We must continue to spread the word on the importance of shifting the $500 million in forced taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood, instead to fund the165 community health clinics across New Mexico that provide comprehensive women's health services for ALL women-- including low-income women. Especially when the MAJORITY of Americans, 55% are against all or most abortions and the fact the Center for Medical Progress videos reveal at least 5 areas of the law potentially violated by Planned Parenthood's top executives. Don't forget Planned Parenthood is a business whose primary non-taxpayer funded revenue, 86 percent of which, comes from abortion and 95 percent of Planned Parenthood's pregnancy services end in abortion, not prenatal care.
Although Congress voted to continue funding the scandal-ridden abortion corporation through December, we must continue to press our leaders to stop pandering to Planned Parenthood, a special interest, big abortion corporation that funds their campaigns and start listening to the people who put them in office: "The New Mexico Alliance for Life along with thousands of other New Mexicans ask our leaders to move forward with a strategy of shifting funds from Planned Parenthood to providers of comprehensive women's health services - who are not part of a corrupt, political and ideologically driven organization."
