While one group of liberals is out fighting to make sure that charitable organizations don’t receive federal funding to help those in need…
Next week, the group started by Gaylor and her mother in the 1970s to take on the religious right will fight its most high-profile battle when the U.S. Supreme Court hears arguments on its lawsuit against President Bush’s faith-based initiative.
The court will decide whether taxpayers can sue over federal funding that the foundation believes promotes religion. It could be a major ruling for groups that fight to keep church and state separate.
In 2003, Planned Parenthood provided 244,628 surgical abortions, the largest of any abortion provider in the U.S.
Planned Parenthood receives almost a third of its money in government grants and contracts ($265.2 million in FY 2004).
