Planned Parenthood: We Need More Funding to Create Jobs

Conservative candidates on the campaign trail for the GOP nomination have been putting Planned Parenthood on the defensive by threatening to cut the abortion businesses' funding. Now, Planned Parenthood is pulling the "we create jobs" card as a response. After all, the abortion business is big money. Planned Parenthood brought in $106 million in 2010 alone.  LifeNews has more:

As he campaigned in Iowa on Sunday, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum has restated his support for cutting off federal taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

Santorum made a stop at Tabernacle Baptist Church where he emphasized his pro-life views and talked about his efforts during his time as a Pennsylvania senator in the 1990s when he led the battle to ban partial-birth abortions.

“[The abortion] is an inhumanity that should not occur in this country,” Santorum said, according to the Daily Iowan. “[Tax dollars] should not be used for things that are morally objectionable.”

Although Santorum called for ending tax subsidies to the abortion business, Christina Carberry, the president of the Feminist Majority Leadership Alliance at the University of Iowa, told the newspaper she disagreed.

“I think it’s unfortunate that the Republican candidates choose to focus on choosing a right that women have been given as opposed to talking about other major issues in our country like the economy,” Carberry said. “We need more funding for Planned Parenthood so it can create jobs for people.”

According to Planned Parenthood, Republican candidates should believe the economy is more important than taking the life of an unborn child.
