Guns Don't Kill People, Abortions Do

Posted on the 10 January 2013 by Brutallyhonest @Ricksteroni

That heard a short time ago on the radio... thought it clever... but then came across this article and thought it to be most relevant:

In its latest annual report for fiscal year 2011 to 2012, Planned Parenthood reveals that it performed PlannedParenthood333,964 abortions in 2011 – a record year for the organization.

According to annual reports, the organization performed 332,278 abortions in 2009, 329,445 in 2010, making the total number of abortions in three years to 995,687.

Planned Parenthood reported receiving a record $542 million in taxpayer funding, according to a Susan B. Anthony List analysis of the report, in the form of government grants, contracts, and Medicaid reimbursements. The amount is 45 percent of Planned Parenthood’s annual revenue.

“While government subsidies to Planned Parenthood have reached an all time high, so too has the number of lives ended by this profit-driven abortion business,” SBA List’s President Marjorie Dannenfelser said in a statement. “Destroying nearly one million children in three years is not health care and does not reflect a concern for vulnerable women and girls.”

The latest numbers I was able to find as to gun deaths was 31,672 in 2010.  

What's not clear is how many of those gun deaths were subsidized by tax payers.

333,964 to 31,672 and many of the gun deaths I suspect can be tied to drug dealers killing other drug dealers, or gang members killing other gang members.

Whereas every one of the victims of abortion were innocent.  Completely innocent.  The essence of innocence.

Guns don't kill people, abortions do.

Someone let Joe Biden and Obama know.

Not that they would give a crap.
