Politico reports that donations to Planned Parenthood have increased since Republicans have tried to zero out taxpayer subsidies to the abortion provider.

Fine.  That proves that the group is capable of raising funds privately, and needn't keep its hand out for a government handout.

There are people who are actually proud of Planned Parenthood and what it does (although, in the era of Lila Rose investigations like this and this, that pride starts to resemble willful blindness).  So let its supporters support Planned Parenthood, and stop forcing taxpayers to fund an organization which is notable mostly for all the babies it aborts.
