  • LOL
    oh please, they are not into saving lives. If they were, they wouldn't be taking lives.
    Half of all people who enter an abortion clinic, die.

  • As with many organizations that donate, I am guessing they have something to gain.  Harry Reid loves him some PP!  He loves them so much he would rather refuse pay to our brave men and women in combat than let go of a few bucks he has earmarked for PP.

  • I am sure his family is far too important to receive services at PP. It does make one wonder how much of that earmarked money PP contributed to his campaign though.

  • To keep getting federal dollars from dems. I'm guessing the $1 million they spent is a small part of what they get back.

    Maybe all the groups, businesses, etc that receive federal money should be prohibited from spending said money on campaign donations. Or we could just cut their budget by that amount. They've shown that by donating it that they don't really need it, right?

    How much more could they be paid without political activism at the tune of over a million dollars?

  • I think they should change the name to Your Unplanned Parenthood.
    Anyway....the wacky dems have their reasons why they want to stop paying our present soldiers who are defending the right to kill our future soldiers.
