GAO: Planned Parenthood received $657 million in tax dollars over last seven years 

The Government Accountability Office has a released a report, “Fiscal Years 2002-2009 Obligations, Disbursements, and Expenditures for Selected Organizations Involved in Health-Related Activities.” But despite the soporific title, the report contains some pretty startling revelations about the amount government funding going to groups either perform abortions or advocate it.

Over the seven year period studied in the report, Planned Parenthood received $657.1 million in tax dollars; Population Council received $284.3 million, the Guttmacher Institute received $12.7 million, Advocates for Youth received $8.7 million, and the International Planned Parenthood Federation received $3.9 million.

All in all, $966.7 million tax dollars went to encouraging a practice a plurality of Americans finds morally wrong.
