Congressman Trent Franks (AZ-02) criticizes the latest Planned Parenthood Federation of America annual report as attestation to where the Obama Administration holds America's priorities during the economic depression.

"Planned Parenthood is the world's foremost promoter and provider of abortion on demand for any reason or no reason. With almost 900 clinics nationwide, it is by far the largest abortion provider in America, and accounts for one in five of all abortions performed in America. But, because this giant, billion-dollar, death dealing organization operates under the ruse of a "family planning" charity, it received an increased sum of $487.4 million from $363.2 million in 2009 of taxpayer dollars from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010.

"It is unconscionable that while America is in the midst of a historic budget crisis―our national debt surpassing $15 trillion, moms and dads without work―this Administration would sanction budget cuts across the board yet increase funding to a vitriolic organization that guises the killing of innocent unborn children as a taxpayer subsidized choice.
