Appleton, WI (LifeNews.com) — A new video sent shockwaves through the Internet yesterday that shows staff at a Wisconsin Planned Parenthood abortion center purposefully misleading women considering an abortion about its nature and the development of their unborn children.
The footage shows staff and the abortion practitioner misleading women about when the heartbeat of an unborn child begins and falsely claiming abortion is safer than childbirth.
Today, a Wisconsin pro-life group informed LifeNews.com that the county government where the Grand Chute, Wisconsin Planned Parenthood is located is funding the abortion business in question.
An open records request conducted by Pro-Life Wisconsin earlier this year revealed that, in 2008, five Wisconsin counties wrote checks to Planned Parenthood.
The pro-life group told LifeNews.com that Outagamie County, where the Appleton-area Planned Parenthood is located, paid Planned Parenthood a total of $10,872.59 in 2008.
Pro-Life Wisconsin also noted that the Appleton Planned Parenthood received $429,462.88 in 2007 under Wisconsins Family Planning Waiver Program.
In total, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin received $15.82 million form the state for the family planning program that allows minors as young as 15 to receive free birth control without their parents knowledge or consent.
Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin is the states number one abortion provider, both surgical and chemical," Peggy Hamill, state director of Pro-Life Wisconsin, said. "Planned Parenthood has proven they do not know, or they care to ignore, basic facts about human development."
"Our affiliates have prayed and sidewalk counseled at this location for years, and we have seen firsthand the damage caused by this abortion facility," she added.
The video is part of a Live Action project that has focused on the potentially illegal and unethical actions of Planned Parenthood staffers.
Similar videos have shown staff at the abortion business covering up potential cases of sexual abuse of minors that qualifies as statutory rape under state laws.
ACTION: Contact the county board of supervisors here and complain about the government funding.
