Misuse – government funding for Planned Parenthood grew $90 million in four years

Published in Blog on December 07, 2022 by Laurel Wagner

Taxpayer dollars are yet again being misused by our federal government, this time funding a considerable amount of Planned Parenthood’s revenue in 2022. 

Over the past four years, Planned Parenthood's revenue grew 16%, according to The Center Square. While its revenue has increased, so has government funding, which rose about $90 million from 2016 to 2021. The government directed over $633 million to the abortion provider in 2021.  

The organization operates with a $1.71 billion revenue as of 2021, and it seems to only be rising.

The financial details of the company are enlightening, considering taxpayer funding has added up to 37% of Planned Parenthood’s revenue over the past four years.

Meanwhile, performed abortions continue to rise while adoption referrals decline. From 2016 to 2021, PP abortions grew 19% to 383,460.

It seems there's a direct correlation between government funding and a rise in the abortion of babies, an objectionable effort on the part of our federal government. Funding non-profit organizations like Planned Parenthood is not a job for our federal government to take on, and not something Americans’ hard-earned dollars should be used for. 

This is an especially hot topic due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, considering the Biden administration is advocating for the sheltering of pregnant migrant children in “abortion safe” states in order to perform abortions on them in America. 

During the Trump administration, performing abortions on pregnant migrant children was considered unconstitutional without director approval, but the Biden administration considers this a healthcare must.

One wonders if the federal government ought to provide funding to all kinds of nonprofits so as to not show its preferential treatment, such as Convention of States Action. Why stop with Planned Parenthood?

Of course, there are always strings attached to government money. Funding a large amount of Planned Parenthood’s revenue is a waste to taxpayers, immoral, and not what our tax dollars should be used on.

Money mismanagement can be aided through the work of Convention of States Action.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
