Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has introduced a Congressional bill that would defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business. The abortion giant kills more babies in abortions every year than anyone else in America, but it has been the recipient of billions in taxpayer funds over the years.

Boebert’s measure would send the $633 million in taxpayer funds that typically go to the abortion business to legitimate medical care like cancer screenings, prenatal care, and other health care services.

“The nation’s largest abortion provider has no business receiving taxpayer dollars. Planned Parenthood claims these funds go to healthcare for women, but last year, Planned Parenthood performed a record number of abortions while also reducing the number of well-woman exams and breast cancer screenings it performed,” Boebert said of the bill.

“Instead of funding Planned Parenthood, my bill will redirect this funding to community health centers that focus on healthy women, not killing babies,” she added.

Some 29 members of the House have already co-sponsored Boebert’s bill on the first day of its introduction.

Planned Parenthood’s own annual report shows it killed hundreds of thousands of babies in abortions.

Its 2020 annual report shows it aborted 383,460 babies, an increase of almost 30,000 babies killed in abortions compared to the year before. In 2019 the abortion giant killed 354,871 babies in abortions.

That means Planned Parenthood killed 1,050 babies in abortions every single day — even though the abortion giant claims its main focus is merely women’s health care. In other words, Planned Parenthood kills one baby in an abortion every 82 seconds.

Meanwhile, the “nonprofit” abortion business made more money than every before — bringing in $1,714.4 billion income, aided in part by $633.4 million in taxpayer dollars.

While Planned Parenthood kills more babies in abortions, the number of abortions in the United States increased just 2%— making it so Planned Parenthood is doing a larger and larger percentage of all the abortions done on babies in the U.S. ever year. With the pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute estimating 930,160 abortions, this means Planned Parenthood kills 41% of all babies killed in abortions in the United States.
