"Like millions of Americans, I believe that innocent life deserves protection and I am deeply offended by abortion. It is unconscionable to me that fellow Pro-Life Americans are forced to fund abortion through their tax dollars. As a Congressman, I’ve never voted for any budget that includes funding for Planned Parenthood. Instead, I’ve introduced the Taxpayers’ Freedom of Conscience Act to cut off all taxpayer funding of abortions, so-called “family planning” services and international abortionists."
Ron Paul, commenting on his promise to ban all federal funding of Planned Parenthood if he is elected President.
What Paul failed to mention is that Congress already prohibits Planned Parenthood from using federal funding to provide abortions, except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother. Rep. Paul’s bill would strip Planned Parenthood of all federal funding in an effort to prevent taxpayers from paying for a service which they already don’t pay for.
Cool! I would like to invoke the Taxpayers’ Freedom of Conscience Act to cut off all taxpayer funding of killing brown people for oil. And ignorance-only education. And Mike Pence’s salary. kthx
Reblogging for the next time some libertarian doofus asks me why I don’t like Ron Paul.
