Abortion industry asks Obama for billions

Abortion industry asks Obama for billions in funding-"A major abortion provider wants taxpayers to fork over more money, even while the economy is down.

Over 50 pro-abortion groups have submitted a 55-page wish list called "Advancing Reproductive Rights and Health in a New Administration" to the incoming Obama administration. Jim Sedlak of American Life League's (ALL) Stop Planned Parenthood, or Stopp International, has tallied the cost. "They want unfettered abortion. They want the government paying for all of its programs," he contends. "In fact, [if] you total up everything that they've asked Obama for, Planned Parenthood and their friends want the taxpayers to give them $4.6 billion next year." According to an ALL press release, the document requests $700 million to fund Title X, $900 million for international "family planning" programs, and additional millions for STD and sex education programs. Putting it under a microscope, Sedlak says the request is shocking when there are people on the streets looking for an income. "We have to remember that last year, Planned Parenthood got $356 million in government money and [got] $114 million in profit," he points out. Sedlak suggests the wish list represents a request to support an agenda, rather than a genuine need."

Indiana Planned Parenthood under investigation-" probe is under way of an Indiana Planned Parenthood after an undercover video revealed alleged criminal actions.

Lila Rose of Live Action Films filmed visits to two Indiana Planned Parenthood clinics. She posed as a 13-year-old impregnated by a 31-year-old man. While at the clinic, she was advised on how to get an abortion without getting the boyfriend in trouble. The Indiana attorney general's office and one grand jury are now investigating.
"But we need to keep the pressure on the district attorney and the attorney general of Indiana," says Rose. "[W]e need to ensure that this investigation is thorough and it is not side blocked by anything that Planned Parenthood might put out in order to impede that investigation."
