ForAmerica released the following statement in response to House Republicans’ legislative effort to defund Planned Parenthood:
“We applaud the provisions in the American Healthcare Act to eliminate Planned Parenthood funding. Voters have heard election promise after promise from the same Republican leadership that they would turn off the spicket of taxpayer money to the baby butchers at Planned Parenthood, so we expect nothing less than the complete defunding of the organization. Planned Parenthood, Hollywood’s charity du jour, should be 100% privately funded,” said David Bozell, president of ForAmerica.
“As to reports that claim the White House could be negotiating with Planned Parenthood: Under no circumstances should baby butchers receive a penny from American taxpayers — not now, not ever. Even if the White House says they’ll only fund Planned Parenthood’s office water coolers, this is a broken promise to the millions of Americans who consider abortion to be a grotesque and immoral practice that should be abolished,” continued Bozell.
Three days after the 2016 Presidential election, the New York Times reported that “one of the great unexpected influences on the election was…ForAmerica.”
