PP contends that tax dollars are not used directly to fund abortions. However, tax funded programs include graphic sex education youth programs that do not oppose abortion. Additionally, PP staff members have salaries subsidized by taxpayers while they are free to advocate abortion. The abortion giant already receives more than $300 million nationally in tax dollars. Similar programs in Martin County were discontinued after taxpayer watchdogs showed red-faced council members that funded programs could not be substantiated or were already duplicated by other government agencies.
After the picket, organizers from St. Lucie Taxpayers Against Planned Parenthood Funding are asking taxpayers to go into the meeting and address the CSC during public forum, and respectfully asking them to cease funding of PP with tax dollars. Each member of the public is allowed to speak for several minutes.
Please consider speaking. It’s easy to speak for 3 minutes – you can read what you have written to the board members.
