Donations from America’s elite keep rolling in to the abortion chain Planned Parenthood.
The latest to give is billionaire Elaine Wynn, co-founder of the Mirage Resorts and Wynn Resorts, Fortune reports. Wynn donated $1 million to the abortion group, saying she wants to help “protect access to reproductive health care.”
Wynn currently is worth $1.84 billion, according to Forbes. She gave the donation to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America and Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, the affiliate in her home area, according to the report.
She said Facebook chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, who also donated $1 million to the abortion group recently, and the pro-abortion Women’s March inspired her to make the donation.
“I’m a firm believer in the importance of women helping women, and as a longtime supporter of Planned Parenthood, I know that they’ve done so much to help women get the health care they need,” Wynn said.
However, the only “health care” for which Planned Parenthood is essential is abortion, which is not really health care at all because it kills a life. The abortion chain performs one third of all abortions in the United States each year, about 320,000 on average, according to its annual reports.
At the same time, Planned Parenthood also receives about half a billion tax dollars annually. Last month, a congressional investigation into the abortion business over its handling of aborted baby parts concluded with lawmakers suggesting that Congress defund the abortion company.
While celebrities and other wealthy Americans have been flaunting their support for the abortion chain publicly, their actions do not reflect the opinions of the general public.
Polls show a majority of Americans support defunding Planned Parenthood and redirecting tax dollars to community health centers that provide more comprehensive care. The polling company, inc./WomanTrend found 56 percent of voters in battleground states oppose taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.
U.S. Sens. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa, and James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, recently introduced a bill, the Protect Funding for Women’s Health Care Act, that would defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups. The legislation would redirect federal dollars to the more than 13,500 community health centers nationwide that provide a broader range of healthcare services to women (e.g., mammograms) and do not perform abortions.
As LifeNews previously reported, President Donald Trump said he would sign a bill to defund Planned Parenthood as long as it continues to do abortions.
During his first week in office, Trump also reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which prevents funding of groups that promote or perform abortions overseas, including the International Planned Parenthood Federation. The policy also was in place during the George W. Bush administration.
