A recently released federal report shows that almost $2 billion of American taxpayer funds were given to abortion advocates like Planned Parenthood in just three short years. According to the Government Accountability Office, Planned Parenthood and two international abortion groups collectively received $1.89 billion in federal funds from 2019-2021. The influx of cash allows these organizations to advocate for abortion for any reason and without limit—even though federal law prohibits the spending of federal funds on abortion. Worse yet, America’s taxpayers are funding abortions abroad and supporting overseas abortion advocacy.
The Pro-Life Caucus summary of the report details the massive federal funding of abortion advocacy. Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in America, received an average of nearly $600 million a year in federal funding. This money came from federal grants, reimbursements from Medicaid, Medicare, and CHIP federal grants, and the COVID-19 Paycheck Protection Program.
