So taxpayers are forced to give money to the government, which then gives money to Planned Parenthood, which then spends taxpayer money to influence elections. How is this not theft again?

government funds are used for health services only. those are reimbursements mainly from Medicaid. Planned Parenthood saves money for the government https://www.istandwithpp.org/defund-defined/how-federal-funding-works-planned-parenthood

Can you please explain what "save" means to you? I don't think it means what you think it means!

the article I linked explains it.. (from a page linked to in that article): "With so many fewer pregnancies among this population, appropriating funding for family planning works out to be very good deal for the government. It eliminates a significant amount of potential Medicaid spending, since states don’t have to pay as much for abortions, for miscarriages, or for maternity and infant care. “This investment resulted in net government savings of $13.6 billion in 2010, or $7.09 for every public dollar spent,” the researchers conclude."

Ex, organizations that receive money from the Government shouldn’t be able to donate to presidential candidates for the same reason that federal employees shouldn’t donate to candidates or show support for them either.

They get government money, then spend hugh sums of money to get officals elected who will give them more money.. And they have been caught not ripping apart fetal babies in the womb , but birthing them whole and live , because they get more money for live baby parts.. Just to remind you this is the offical plank of the democratic party ..Live birth abortion and anytime in the last trimester.

Can you disprove it? Or maybe there is a certain video of an interview in which a director of PP says as much?

Yawn. Baby murderers trying to get politicians to shield them from justice.

I agree this shouldn't be allowed. Lets go one step further and say no company or industry receiving federal funding should be able to give to politicians. This would include the oil industry. I hope we can agree on that principled argument.

I can get behind that. It makes a lot of sense to me.

But I thought they didn’t have any money. All the scare stories of women not being able to get health care because mean people took away their money. Now they found $45 million to buy off politicians with. I seem to want to support them less and less.

It should be illegal for a cooperation to donate this kind of money.
Donald Lungrin 5 days
No, it shouldn’t. You could argue that they should be allowed to spend political money if they receive government money, but to inhibit a company’s right to do what they want with their own money is an infringement on personal autonomy.
Dust Phoxner 5 days
I said this kind of money not no money in general there should be a cap on how much because big corporations are going to have more money to throw around than the average person. I would say 100,000 sounds fair.
Donald Lungrin 5 days
I wasn’t confused. Putting a cap on how much someone can donate is an encroachment on their autonomy.

Why can’t we ban corporations from donating to politicians?
Herbie Goes Bananas 6 days
Because corporations are people too.... evidently.

Does planned parenthood not recieve any funding from taxes at all anymore? I know their funding has been reduced but I was under the impression there is still some. My question is how democrats can get away with voting to support an organization with taxes and then that organization be allowed to contribute to elections in any way?
