Planned Parenthood Admits: Medicaid Funding Increases Abortions!

Planned Parenthood's "research" arm, the Alan Guttmacher Institute, recently came out with a study which admits that federal laws like the Hyde Amendment, and laws in other states banning the use of state Medicaid funds for abortion, saves hundreds of thousands of lives every year!

The AGI study was titled "RESTRICTING MEDICAID FUNDING FOR ABORTION FORCES ONE IN FOUR POOR WOMEN TO CARRY UNWANTED PREGNANCIES TO TERM". Of course, from Planned Parenthood's point of view, giving birth to a beautiful new baby boy or girl is characterized as "being forced to bring a pregnancy to term".

Ignoring the extremist death cult rhetoric and you see a naked confession that Medicaid funding of abortion, such as we have in Washington, massively increases the number of abortions.

When contacting your legislators on this issue, make sure they know that the abortion industry has already conceded one of our main arguments.

Almost 500 Signatures, Need District Heads

The petition campaign has almost reached the 500 mark! The current tally is 487. 500 signatures is just 10 for each of Washington's 49 legislative districts. Our short-term goal is 1,000 signatures, or just about 20 per district.

We are also looking for representatives for each district to serve as a liaison between the campaign and the legislators for that district. We already have a few such volunteers. Thanks very much for your service. We have started contacting legislators and are collecting official positions on this issue which will help us focus efforts.
